Inspiration has different meaning for everyone I guess.

ACS Type 3 wheels & Hartge










ol' school inspiration









Random Swedish Inspiration from last decade?

These are the only ones I've got, some said was knock offs, but I recall being on the Maylasian/Idonesian forum and it is in fact real ACS Type 3 in 19"s, I'm still waiting for the right ACS Type 1 in 18"s to show up

IIRC there were few of 'em, Volvo built 'em for auto shows.

Here's a Taiwanese flava, I wouldn't say its inspirational, but its different.










Anybody remember this fella from Thailand? 1JZGTE swapped then later changed to 2JZ and full of carbon, all I've got are the ones before it received all the carbon bits and the big ass turbo'd 2JZ, those rims were the shiz!

Some more "traditional" inspirations, I'm not too fond of the whole shaved widebodies the Swedes are building lately.

I always found the S70 trunk bit quirky, but its kinda nice after a while.

And does this one count for inspiration as well? I mean, overtaking a 200mph train and still sitting in all the comfort of a 760

The S70 rear looks like ****. Look at all the gaps.

I love those Rial rims btw.

I recall when I was in Holland last time, I saw a 760 with roll cage, lowered, big exhaust, right off the off-ramp in Delft around the university, I tried to catch up in my rental Corsa 1.1 , but its no match for even the damn bus..............

another ol school flava.

The front ones are stock, and the rears have the inner lips rolled out.
