Dodge C500 Custom

Dodge C500 Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)A photoshop quickie, quite literally. A friend sent me a picture of the Dodge C500 and challenged me to modify it within a given time-frame of ten minutes. There is not much one can do in ten minutes, but hey – it was just for the heck of it anyways ;-)

Chrysler Newport Sedan

Chrysler Newport Sedan Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)The proportions of some American cars from the 1970’s are a bit cartoonish. The Chrysler Newport Sedan is a great example. Just for fun and to emphasize the oddness, I added a couple of axles and extended the hood and trunk accordingly. The passenger area remained stock standard. Note: this is likely to be the first vehicle here at VirtualModels that still has the stock ride height ;-)

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Low Drag Coupé

Aston Martin V8 Vantage Low Drag Coupé | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a beautiful car, no doubt about it. However, the design of the lower rear end is debatable. This is why I choose the side view to create my idea of a low drag coupé. Chopping about an inch from the roof and lowering the car go a long way in improving the overall appearance. I could have removed the bumpers and chrome trim to suit the idea better, but decided to keep them to retain the classic look.

Ford Escort LX Wagon

Ford Escort LX Wagon | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2014)Who said compact family wagons are boring? Every boy sitting in the backseat of such a vehicle must have thought at one point that it would be really cool if Daddy modified the family hauler to add to the appearance. The Ford Escort LX Wagon pictured here was simply lowered, larger wheels have been fitted along with an airdam up front and a modified hood. Little things do make a difference…

A more muscular BMW 507 Roadster

BMW 507 Muscle RoadsterFew people would think this legendary BMW  designed by Albrecht Graf von Goertz needs more muscle or any other modification. And with the car being a high-priced classic it is probably wise not to tinker with it. However, sometimes you want to let your phantasy run wild, don’t you? Imagine if somebody with sufficient funds would get hold of a 507 roadster

I always thought this particular vehicle is very elegant and beautifully shaped – but the stance was never to my liking. The nose high up in the air just doesn’t cut it for me. Now, I could have lowered the car and be done with it. But no, I added a few subtle modifications like the period-correct wheels a chopped windshield and a larger exhaust. Who know what might be hiding under the hood? A supercharger would be nice you think? Let your imagination go crazy!

Alfa Romeo 4C Evoluzione

Alfa Romeo 4C EvoluzioneThe Alfa Romeo 4C is a nifty little sportscar, well worth of carrying the legendary brand name. However, I don’t like the stock headlights, because they do look very cheap and out of place on such a sculpted body. But hey, that is easily fixed with Adobe Photoshop…

Citroën CX Shooting Break

Citroen CX Shooting Break Gullwing | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)Citroën has built many cars that have been well ahead of the game. However, they never built a CX Shooting Break with gullwing doors. But hey, they could have – and nobody would have been surprised at all ;-)

Chrysler Voyager Mk1 Custom

Chrysler Voyager Mk1 Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)The inspiration to photoshop a Chrysler Voyager Mk1 came from reading Brock Yates‘ book The Critical Path. The old one-box design minivans have a lot of potential for customizing, in my opinion. I tried to keep it in an 80’s style, but the stance is definitely a more contemporary approach…

Mercury Park Lane Sedan Custom

Mercury Park Lane Sedan Custom | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)A true classic with a classic custom car touch. Not much done here, because it doesn’t need much to make that particular car look stunning. The body has been lowered, cleaned and received a pinstriping, which spans the whole flank. And yes – the Mercury Park Lane Sedan is a rather large vehicle…

SAAB 900 Turbo S

SAAB 900 Turbo S | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)An instant classic. The SAAB 900 Turbo has always had it friends and foes. I always liked them because they are a bit weird – but very well engineered. This shape doesn’t need a lot of tweaking, so I reworked the body carefully. The fenders have been flared a little, the door handles shaved and some of the trim removed. A healthy drop over enlarged wheels, a front spoiler and that’s about it. Not much drama for a rather subtle effect. Like it or don’t ;-)
