Although not that vibrant as it once was, the art of coachbuilding is still alive today, with some companies and design studios creating unique, bespoke automobiles that entice the aficionados. Still, we’re not so sure about this particular BMW 6 Series from Vilner.
Purpose-built bespoke automobiles are worth their weight in gold, especially if we’re talking about purebred coachbuillds from the days of yore, but that doesn’t make every re-worked car valuable.
Believe it or not, this M6 could very well be classified as a coachbuild, as its refabricated body and interior are significantly different from stock form. Still, its lack of pedigree (and style) won’t make it a desirable proposition, even if it's associated with Star Wars’ Stormtrooper army.
When Vilner launched the automobile, two years ago, the company said it could build up to 10 examples if there was enough interest in it, as the initial project was made for an Austrian customer.
The model, didn’t suffer changes under the hood (if you don’t take into account the new top speed limitation), but what more can you ask from a 197-mile-an-hour (318 km/h), 507 HP cabriolet that sprints from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.4 seconds?
This model is offered for sale by the Bulgarian tuner for $104,481, it has only 105,000 Km on the clock and comes with full service history.
