Near the end of Furious Seven yesterday three cars leapt out at me, the Rad Rides By Troy built’ GPT Special’ Ford Torino, the crazy cool Chevy Caprice I can’t find any more info on, and the bare metal Dodge Charger known as Project Maximus.
All of these cars were pretty awesome inclusions in the film, but the inspiration for today’s post comes solely from the latter mentioned Nelson Supercars all aluminum wide body 2000 hp fire breather.

It fits really well into this theme. Handmade bare metal body.
The one below the volksrod looks to be based on a porsche 914 considering the headlights, hood line and A pillar.
I’ve always wanted to do a bare metal car. I’ll get the opportunity one day. Maybe an E30 coupe…
My biggest thing with raw metal is I think it is quite a bit of up keep no matter what you do.
