Essen Motor Show 2015 Highlights

Essen Motor Show Ferrari 458

On Saturday, the Essen Motor Show 2015 opened its doors to the public. Set to run through until December 6, Essen has attracted some of Europe’s most amazing tuned cars alongside a selection of completely bespoke creations.

As these pictures from Dub05 show, one of the highlights of Essen 2015 is a one-off wooden supercar dubbed the Splinter. Powered by a mid-engined aluminium7.0-litre V8 pumping out 600 hp, the Splinter provides a unique take on modern-day performance cars. It really is unlike anything we’ve ever laid eyes on.

Beyond the Splinter, certainly one of the stars of Essen is a Ferrari 458 Italia extensively changed by Prior Design. The car has been installed with Prior Design’s complete widebody kit and therefore includes flared wheel arches. There is also a new front-end inspired by the LaFerrari, custom side skirts, front canards and a set of polished blue wheels. Making the car all the more ridiculous is the matte blue wrap.

Other cars at Essen 2015 include a number of Liberty Walk Nissan GT-Rs, modified Porsche 911s and custom Corvettes. Alongside all the tuned cars, there are a number of stock performance cars being displayed like a 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Lamborghini Aventador SV, BMW M1 as well as Porsche 911 and Mercedes-Benz SLS GT3 cars.
