This gorgeous piece of luxury driving was photographed in the parking lot of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California in December of 2014.
This Honda S2000 is driven in the opening sequence of the 2003 Universal film 2 Fast 2 Furious, a movie that offers a glimpse into the lifestyle excesses of some modern day tuner car aficionados. Painted a custom shade of Pink, the roadster was equipped with a special ground effects kit and 18-inch rims for the scene in which is jumps a bridge. A Paxton supercharger was fitted to increase its horsepower rating from 240 to 340.
Italian automotive excellence meets the art of the street in this bitchen graffiti art car by John “CRASH” Matos. The custom-painted 2005 Ferrari F 430 was on display curbside last evening in front of the Dorian Grey Gallery on East 9th Street as part of the opening reception festivities for its Strada Veloce exhibit, which opened yesterday. Strada Veloce, loosely translated, is Italian for “Fast Road.”
It wasn’t that easy to get clear, “Human Free” shots of the car because, understandably, people were swarming all over it like flies. Because even those who don’t drive love a fast car.
The exhibit, which features exotic automotive accessories refashioned as functional furniture and also oil paintings of expensive foreign sports cars, will be up through October 5th at Dorian Grey Gallery, Located at 437 East 9th Street (Between A and 1st) in NYC. But if you weren’t there last night, you missed this Sweet Ride for good!
Designed by Glynn Jenkins in 2008, the Mini Cooper Mini Desk is a fantastic example of what can be done to repurpose an automobile if you set your mind to it.
While the desk has no drawers, per se, photos found on another site indicate that storage is available in the trunk and also under the hood. The Mini Desk website is no longer in existence, so I am guessing your chance to own one for these bespoke desks is long gone. Still, it is nice to look at this photos, and to imagine what might have been.

Over at Jalopnik, this Russian PT Cruiser Wedding Limo (yes, I just typed that) is taking a lot of shit for being what it is. But, really, isn’t this car actually all kinds of awesome? It reminds me of Disneyland. I just love it!
