Sometimes, a tuning project can go horribly wrong, and this Chrysler PT Cruiser kind of shows.
This odd-looking automobile started life as a regular PT Cruiser, but its current owner decided a hot-rod pick-up inspired appearance suits the car best, given its retro-styled look in the first place.
So after mating it with an extremely wide-body kit – making it reminiscent of the 1940’s Ford Pick-ups (that is if you have a lot of imagination to interpret the “design philosophy” in such a way) – the owner turned its attention to the car’s interior and commissioned Bulgarian tuner Carbon Motors to come up with proposition for the cabin.
According to Carbon Motors – which isn’t in any way affiliated with the company known for creating a police car prototype – the interior was designed to match the new appearance of the vehicle. Good thing it doesn’t, as the PT Cruiser’s revised cabin looks miles better than its exterior, which for some reason, sports an urban-camo decal.
As you can see from the pictures, all the plastic elements were covered in leather, and the attention to detail is quite commendable. Besides the seats, the dashboard was adorned in hide, and even the doors didn’t escape the full-leather trim treatment. To top it off, a bespoke central console was produced to complement the vehicle’s overall custom design.
Unfortunately, we don’t know whether the car’s engine was upgraded as well, or what kind of powerhouse it sports for that matter, but we’re inclined to believe the car’s eccentricity doesn’t extend to the engine bay.
