I like creativity. New ideas are interesting. A bit of individualism is always good. But of course people can take it a bit too far. What I like is a bit of individualisation with an editors eye. Say some small changes and tweaks, but no extreme make over.
Refined customisation is the key. But with critique of creativity there is always an option of a fence where people can sit on.
I'm sitting on the fence for this one.
It is a 1987 Bentley Mulsanne currently for sale at Fantastische Fahrzeuge Michael Fröhlich
, which translates to Michael Froehlich's Fantastic vehicles. In Dusseldorf.
Fantastic is not the first word I would use to describe this Bentley, but I will go with it.
What I am so impressed with is the front head lights. About 6 months ago I posted about a very similar idea. The post was called A Change of Headlights
, and describes my idea of making the Turbo R headlights more like a post '05 Arnage. Very similar to what has been done here.
It does look really impressive, but they should have kept the diameter of the headlights the same. Much more Bentley like.
Oh I'm all for under bumper mesh, but just having a bumper would be better. Yes I can be a critic all I like, they should have put a Bentley Turbo RT bumpers
on the car with the headlight mod, but really I think it is just great that they have decided to do these mods at all.
Even fantastic. Not the outcome, but the decision making that has gone into the car.
The rear is just as surprising. I have no idea where the rear lights come from, they are certainly different to the Range Rover rear lights on this Bentley
. They have weirdly started to grow on me. I kind of like them in a scary way. I'm still imagining a Turbo RT bumper on the back. Much better visual image.
It is yours for 33.900 EUR.
