The GWA Ciento Onse is a modern reproduction of the C11 with a bad-ass M120 Mercedes Unit powered by a V12 engine that draws 408 hp. It has the same braking system as the S55 with an adjustable suspension. The body is structured with advanced aerodynamics and is made with Aluminum, so you could only imagine it like a huge speeding bullet on the road.

The interior of the Ciento Onse would tickle every celebrity’s taste. The seats feature a 70’s inspired plaid pattern, as well as aluminum brake pads, shiny door sills, and a radio and air conditioning taken from the W120R unit.

2-Door Porsche Cayenne Coupe by Merdad

I know that the current Cayenne is a bit of an eyesore and no matter what you do to it you can’t change that fact, but you can’t deny it is a car of very high class. It is a high roller’s car and is on par with the Range Rover and Merdad’s two-door treatment makes it even more prestigious.

The two-door conversion is part of the program that entail a body kit, some huge 22-inch wheels, upgraded suspension which lowers the car by a few inches, and engine upgrade up to 750 hp. The interior package is also very remarkable, with a red and black theme, lots of suede, leather, Alcantara and carbon fiber and new instrument panel.
