    Money does not buy taste - An overdone Hamann Typhoon G55 AMG

    The G55 AMG is a car that makes a statement to begin with. It is shaped like a brick with a large supercharged V8. Add a Hamann Typhoon kit to it painted with red accents and you get a car about as subtle as using a sledgehammer to knock on a door. The kit by itself isn't terrible by any means but the custom paintwork here just screams, "Look at me!" and does not do it in a good way. The car is owned by Anton Kasabov who apparently is a well known Martial Arts fighter. Check out the photos and see what you think for yourself.

    this is terrible...the kit is entirely too busy for my taste but this would have looked much better all black, silver or grey with black, or in white with black.

    honestly, instead of spending money like that to make a car look like $#@!. Just give it out to charity or some $#@!. I need to mod my car too, at least I have some logic with taste. oh well, thats what happens when you have too much money.

    Looks terrible.... the kit takes away from Mercedes' elegant elements in the design.
