What if? These vehicles could be real…


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 ;-)

Volvo 780 T5-R Coupé | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)A T5-R engine? Really? In a classic Volvo 780 Bertone Coupé? You must be kidding!

But hey… why not? The T5-R engine swap might be a little complicated in reality, I agree. Imagination is free and to me it’s fun to think outside the box. I kept the classic, straight lines and just modded a few details to achieve a look that is subtle, yet a tad more aggressive. Wouldn’t hurt to have a couple more ponies under that hood, though…

Lincoln Indianapolis Boano Coupé | Snowmobile

Lincoln Indianapolis Concept SkiDoo photoshop by Sebastian MotschWinter is just around the corner – better be prepared in style.

The Lincoln Indianapolis Boano Coupé concept car inspired me to create a vehicle suitable for the snowy season. The shape of the car didn’t need much tweaking. A healthy top chop, the running gear of a Ski-Doo snowmobile and a few minor tweaks is all it needed to look the part. It could even be quite functional…

Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupé AMG (C126)

Mercedes-Benz AMG C126 S-Class Coupe | photoshop chop by Sebastian Motsch (2013)Bruno Sacco created his masterpiece for Mercedes-Benz: the C126 S-Class Coupé. One shouldn’t really mess with such an iconic design. Hence, I only changed very subtle things. The vehicle has been lowered over a set of multi-piece wheels with central locks*. The window trim has been color coded to match the body. The fenders have been widened ever so slightly and the door handles have been shaved. It still has an OE feel to it – but the appearance and attitude changed dramatically.
