Supercars the tune the imagination when we think of speed and fury. Sure, pleasure sedans from the likes of Bentley and Rolls-Royce have a deathless class and look great when parking it up outside a mountains estate. But when we’re cruising along the motorway in our economical wee matchbox and put the boot down and struggle to overtake something be like, it’s then that we really wish we had supercar power beneath the waves the bonnet.
Imagine being able to get from 0-60 in under three seconds, to a certain extent than taking off at the lights and painfully grinding through the togs as nippy cyclists pass you out. No doubt they will be sneering about how their two biological cylinders make a mockery of your apparatus. We feel slightly sorry for the disdain our poor little Accords and Puntos get when chugging up a hill with a belt of traffic behind them. We know they’re trying their finest but they just weren’t blessed with the same skills as others. Despite all that they’re ours and we still proclivity them for who they are!
So, what better than to imagine your dignity and joy getting a full supercar makeover like Jennings Ford Without have done? Giving them a V12 engine to rocket around and a smarmy, aerodynamic body to make a stunning visual statement. We’d all joyfully stick with our under-rated marques forever if it was possible to kit them out along the same lines as a Ferrari or Bugatti. Imagine your little Renault Clio, repeatedly mocked for its delicate features and ‘soft’ image (despite being European Car of the Year twice) hole up the track at 220mph or cruising around town with a low thumbnail sitting on 20-inch alloys.
That’s exactly what we’ve quit e deteriorated for with this illustration series, supercharging some of the most to a large loved models around and seeing what they pleasure look like if they got the Fairy Godmother treatment and went from pumpkin to bad-ass power chariot in an pressing!
Think of your Toyota Yaris or Auris finished in a carry out Ferrari Rosso, with the horsepower and engine noise to tournament one of the greatest supercars of all time. Toyotas have always been identified for their reliability but what’s the harm in combining that solidity with aid? Nothing at all we say, it’s about time the cars got rewarded for their trusted service!
Anyone who drives a Kia knows exactly why they do so. It’s thrifty and rarely, if ever, breaks down. It does the basics hellishly well in that you can depend on it to get you from A to B for as little as possible. It settle upon never be a conversation-starter though, nor something a romantic partner authority drop into conversation to impress their friends. Until now that is! Our artistic reading of a Kia supercar would see it suped-up but still maintain its identifiable properties like its distinctive radiator grill. With larger tokus tyres and a 2WD option the “new” Kia can drift with the best of them.
If there is one badge that no-one in their wildest dreams force have thought of on a supercar it is probably LADA. So that’s precisely what we’ve done! A cheap and unpretentious throwback to Soviet back-to-basics engineering in the 70s and 80s the LADA all but declined out in the West by the turn of the century. Probably because it was still based on 40-year-old maps. Despite being the butt of every motoring joke imaginable we comprise transformed it into something any owner would be proud of. With the quality brute-force power and body-shape the new LADA reinforces another stereotype, be painstaking making fun of a Russian!
So next time you’re stuck in traffic and you experience the people either side of you are looking down on your trusted motor, just sit back and think of how things could in reality be if your car was a supercar in its body as well as its mind!
