The Essen Motor Show proved once again very valuable for our Overkill category, no less than eight cars scored our qualification overkill.

Another very interesting model is a 1970s Rolls Royce Silver Shadow modified to have an output of 1350hp from the V8. Price tag for this precious piece of overkill? 700.000 dollar!

Another car worth mentioning is the ‘Hello Bitchy’ Chrysler 300C. Lowered, equipped with tinted windows and a matte pink / white paint job and a list of Girls / Boys on the hood we can only imagine the driver been ‘in touch with’ it looks like the perfect car for US-celebrity Tila Tequila…
