I remember this from, god, a couple of years ago. Pretty cool, but crazy expensive if I remember correctly. Never seen it on the C4 before though!

At least they got the wheels going the right way! I swear that's the first picture I've ever seen where they are...

I had never seen this before. That is some pretty cool stuff. Anyone know what a typical cost of doing this is? Just curious...

That wouldn't work well with side pipes! it would melt your door panel off!

That looks like a photo shopped scale model. The rear veiw mirror gives it away.
