This is something we’d gladly deny

The shame of Geneva

Sipi is a fairy who hangs above us like a huge, ever-smiling, men’s fragrance-smelling umbrella. He can be called anytime, anywhere to lend a helping hand, and he’ll be there in an hour with one of his Transits for sure. A dangerously maniac car collector (the street in front of his house is full of his vehicles), a radio-control and model car freak, Sipos is a Swiss knife made of human flesh. Totalcar is just one job amongst his zillion occupations, but he endears it the most. Lives with a girlfriend and two dogs.

It’s time for a coming out. Hungarians were also involved in the making of the retina-melting creatures at the Geneva Motor Show.

Motoring journalists and car nerds are in shock and rolling on the floor laughing at the same time. At least those who have visited the booth of Nimrod or have seen pictures of their tasteless creatures.

Creatures made of Ferraris and a Lamborghinis. Our colleagues attending the show felt dizzy for hours after inspecting the cars displayed, and Máté Petrány of Jalopnik did not even dare to go too close to the Zero, the Katyusha or the Avanti Rosso.

At the time they were not even aware of the fact that the man behind Nimrod Elite Tuning is a Kuwaiti businessman well-known in Hungary for decades, Mr Bader Al-Roudhan. But most importantly most of the work (abuse?) was carried out in Hungary. For example one of the poor 458s was transformed using plastic foam, sanding paper, putty and some composite material at a shop called KI Spoiler.

Our fellow countrymen involved in this project won’t make it into our Hall of Fame.

McLaren MP4-12C

You probably won't believe this: not only Ferraris but McLarens sometimes make their way to the Balkans too. What's more surprising - we actually drove one on a race track in Slovakia.
