    i stole these pictures from another site... i just think they're so unbelieveably beautiful... The car is the perfect color for the landscape, the sun looks like it's about to set, they're just award-worthy pictures, in my opinion...

    This is the West Coast Customs NNO that has the black wheels; beautiful car, beautiful pictures... Just thought i'd share.

    Carbon, those photos are very heavily color corrected in the same fashion as we will be post-editing the FFQC movie this year :)

    This car was on RIDES, with the guy from Beverly Hills 90210.

    The owner is a Canadian Businessman

    Cheers ilo

    PS. Everybody at West Coast Shop was afraid to get this car off the truck :D

    The photos are color corrected, the saturation and contrast have been adjusted, work with alpha channels has been done to create focal points, and there is an orange tint at the top of each photo (as with a windshield or sunglasses).

    i know the wheels aren't everyone's cup of tea and black wheels with silver lips are one of biggest automotive pet peeves, but - and you can call me biased - i still think this car looks awesome with them...


    i know, i know, i made an appointment, i'll see a therapist next week. :)

    No need for a therapist! The Enzo really is beautiful, in a visceral, athletic way.

    That car pictured is one of a reported 10 Canadian Enzo's, and after seeing 2 of these cars parked side by side today, I have to agree with Carbon, that it really is a beauty. In its own distinct way. Oh, and just not with those wheels.

    Awesome pictures Carb. Thanks.

    I don't understand why they changes the wheels and tires though. Didn't bridgeston specially make those tires for the Enzo, so I mean why would you put on some other tires if a company made special tires for your car. You can't Improve perfection, well at least not easily.

    LOL... Who knows why the owner swapped wheels and tires... The fact that the car was personalized is awesome; the wheels may not be my first choice, but i still think the car looks great... If one of you photoshop-savvy folks would care to indulge me, i'd love to see what those wheels would look like, all black... Black lip, black hub behind the yellow center cap... i think they'd look awesome... Probably look even MORE awesome on a black NNO... :)

    The wheels are ugly...

    96impalaSS,
    Yeah I just notice that Enzo doesn't have those special Bridgestone tires. It has Pirelli tires.

    Sorry Carb.
    Im new to these image editing programs, and i tried to make it black, but i failed. Im not even using photoshop, im using the gimp.
    But heres a new look to the second photo, id thought id give it a try! I tried to make an interesting color, and also tried to make it at dawn, as i imagine you will be going on quite a few dawn runs when you get yours!!

    LOL, from DUSK 'til dawn, but yeah, you're right on the money...

    Yes, if you were going for black, that picture sucks, :D, but for blue, it actually looks pretty awesome... i'm not sure which program you're referring to - if you're talking about Paint, then you need to be a graphic designer, 'cause i don't know of ANY way to pull that off in Paint - but the picture looks good; i like the color of the car... Thanks for posting it, it just went into "The Folder"... :)

    Heres another one for you.
    The "Gimp" is a free program that i got with one of those demo cds off a computer magazine. Its pretty powerful. But i dont think it could match photoshop.
    Sorry i couldnt make this one black either!

    Now that's even MORE b!tchin'...!


    Here's three of 133023; i pretty much just wasted time playing with this, since it looks like an ice cream bar you'd get from the ice cream truck and nothing more, but hey, i was playing with different stuff when i did it... :) This is the closest i can get to changing a car's color and i DO have Photoshop...

    i was AIMING to make these gradients green, white and red, the color of the flag of Italy; that just didn't pan out...
