15 of the Weirdest Custom Cars Ever

WTF?

WTF?

I have no idea what this is. I mean, I know it is an automobile of some sort but really, if we drive a car to stand out and be noticed, then what are we supposed to notice about this guy? I think he is friends with Dr Seuss.

Green Machine

Green Machine

This is how you went about being “green” in the world before Prius. I just wonder at what stage this lady will stop watering it. Presumably, the bigger it gets, the more energy it will need to consume. So in some way, it kind of defeats the purpose, presuming it’s a hybrid.



Fattened Car

Fattened Car

I got confused there for a second between real life and Jesus’ parable of the Prodigal Son. I thought someone said something about “slaughtering the fattened calf” when in actual fact, they said “fattened car”. Hang on, how do you slaughter a car?

Shoe Car

Shoe Car

Quite often, people get things specifically designed so that they either stand out in style or for the complete opposite reason; so they can remain inconspicuous. This is neither. Style goes out the window in men’s fashion when you get beyond a size 473. Probably.



Stretch Mini

Stretch Mini

This car is both awesome at the same time as it appears to kind of be in the process of contradicting the desire for both parties of inspiration. What I mean is; do you want to stretch your legs out and relax or not?!

Gold Lambo

Gold Lambo

If ever there was a sign that you have too much money and maybe you should start giving more of it way to charity, it is when you think it’s perfectly okay to go and get yourself a gold Lamborghini. How much you say? A Saudi businessman is said to have paid about US$6 million for it.



Cat Car

Cat Car

What was the car’s name in Knightrider? Was it Kit? This is probably inspired form the name more than the vehicle itself. When it starts coughing up fur balls then you know it’s time to visit the mechanic.

Car Phone

Car Phone

When car phones came out back in the day, everyone got a bit excited. Especially this guy, who tried to get in on what he saw as a future boom, only he completely misunderstood what “car phone” actually meant.



Hummer Tank

Hummer Tank

This is both awesome and completely ridiculous. I can’t imagine that it is practical but let’s be honest, it isn’t street legal so who cares? I do wonder if it does anything to improve this beast’s fuel economy…

3D Print

3D Print

It seems we (and when I say “we” I mean smart people – you know, scientists and the like) are able to make a 3D print of just about anything these days. So I guess it only makes sense that someone would have used the technology to make a car.



Cricket Bat

Cricket Bat

I don’t have to chase this dude down and ask him where he is from because I already know. Anybody who loves cricket so much that they go to the trouble of building a car in the shape of a bat, is definitely from India. If you have to ask, you’ll never know.

The Bullet

The Bullet

I only called this The Bullet as that’s the first thing that came to mind. In actual fact, I have no idea what it is. I do know that its owner sold it for US$190,000 on eBay and described it thusly; "fiberglass and carbon with a one inch steel tubular custom made chassis”.



Wooden Ferrari

Wooden Ferrari

Back in the day, they began to make swimsuits out of wood and that idea didn’t last long. Equally surprising is that they would come up with a wooden car. Italian Livio De Marchi whitled one down and then put a boat engine in it….because, you know, why not….?

Disco Wheels

Disco Wheels

This car might very well negate the need for headlights. Then again, it might just distract other motorists and cause accidents. For some reason, this Mercedes SL600 was completely covered in 300,000 Swarovski crystals.



VW Simmons

VW Simmons

Imagine if the whole Kiss Army went to the trouble of getting their cars decked out in such a way. Their rally might be somewhat more colourful and rowdy than the Oldsmobile club. Then again, they are probably both senior citizens by now.
