Mercedes started the recent "four door coupe" trend several years ago with it's gorgeous CLS model. This chop "reverse engineers" the concept back to the early '80s 123-series. I've given the sedan the coupe's laid-back windshield and given it a period vinyl roof. I made the bodysides a bit lower and incorporated the door handles into the mid-body trim strip to help camoflage them, adding to its "coupeness." I also lowered the car on its suspension and tidied up several other details to make a more elegant four door coupe. The name follows MB's early '80s convention, with this model having a 2.5 liter inline 6 cylinder engine, and CS standing for CoupeSedan.
Keeping the same theme of four door coupes, this is my version of a Hyundai Genesis sport sedan. I used Nissan's old 4DSC descriptive, standing for 4 Door Sports Car. I eliminated the beltline dip and changed the front grille from the donor coupe, in an effort to give this luxury sport sedan a bit more elegance and brightwork.
Moving back to Mercedes Benz, this is an attempt to bring back some of the class that was inherent in Benzes before the early 90s when MB needed to compete with Lexus. I've called this smaller-than C Class the 190E Heritage, and have given this 5 door hatchback 18" wheels designed to look like the painted wheel covers of the past.
Modifying the current C Class, I've given it a smoother aerodynamic appearance for this hybrid version, changing almost every line on the car. I've gone back to the '80s for the smooth wheeltrims, and painted the slats of the new grille. I've also changed the very clunky Mercedes door handles to a more contemporary appearance.
Meet the VW Taifoon. Yes, the German word would be Taifun, but I'm anglicizing it slightly to make sure Americans would pronounce it correctly, lol. This Golf 5 door has been given a more upscale appearance with added aluminum brightwork, reworked roofline, a carbon-fiber hatchlid and restyled taillights and trim. In short, pretty much everything has been changed in some way to give this high-priced Golf a distinctive appearance.
