Mercedes-Benz Brand Workshop

A couple of days ago, we were invited by Mercedes-Benz for a "brand workshop". We had a fabulous guided tour through the stunning Mercedes-Benz Museum, visited the design department and test drove a lot of cars. Just follow this link for more pictures.

The first car we tested — voluntarily — was the Smart Electric Drive. We had a lot of discussions regarding this car recently, so it was a good opportunity to form our own opinion. Um ... well ... interesting. But to be honest: most fun we had with the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. I think we can't hide our origin. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is a wonderful beast.

Beautiful Beast

During our Chromjuwelen En Route video shoot last weekend — see sneak previews above — I had the opportunity to race my Nippon Pontiac for a few meters. Damn, that Poncho kicks *ss. Maybe this is due to the fact the "Kustom City family" worked a little on the setup of my 7M-GTE

At the moment the LeSupra waits to get customized at Style Deluxe Hamburg, but I must admit I start loving the Millenium Falcon "Piece of Junk" style ...

Going Snowboarding with MINI and Burton

During our trip to SEMA 2010 with Continental we had the honour to visit Cam Douglass' "OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational" (OUSCI) in Pahramp, NV. Impressive, seeing all that "Über-Autos" in real life.

SEMA Show 2010: Photos, Articles and More

OK, SEMA is over. And we are already back in Germany. But it is never too late for ultra slammed mini trucks, imposing restomods and awesome hot rods. Just hit this link to see what we brought back. 

Some may have already seen our article ("SEMA Show Las Vegas 2010: Vorbildliche Kulturpflege") on Chromjuwelen.com. Our colleagues from autobild.de posted our coverage as well: "Tuning-Meisterstücke in Las Vegas". We also just received a call that GRIP, a German TV Motor Magazine, covered us working. Check out Min. 6:20 in their "SEMA Show 2010 report". What a coincidence!

At this moment we are working on our reportages about the OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational, our test drive at the Lucas Oil Off Road Series and our interview with Alex Anderson (West Coast Customs (LA)). Stay tuned.

What a mindblowing trip. A huge "thank you" to our partners from Continental for letting us go out into the world. Wow. We love our job. Did we mentioned that already?
