Too Far, You Went There: The TRON Audi R8

January 17, 2011


West Coast Customs teamed up with Monster Cables (WTF?!) to produce a TRON-themed Audi R8 because -- well -- I don't know why. Something about poor decision making and overpriced wires.

The car itself is an Audi R8, a car whose electric version has graced the digital pages of CNET UK once before, thanks to its clever wireless-charging capabilities. Very sneaky stuff.

This version of the R8, however, isn't quite so subtle -- with glowing rims, glowing vents, a glowing back seat and a chrome finish so perfectly reflective that you can check your hair and makeup in the car's bonnet. All the glowing bits gradually fade through a series of colours too, for added Tron-style excellence.

Those clever West Coast Customs lads have certainly done a good job adhering to the source material, even if this car is so shiny it's not likely to be road legal -- imagine catching an eyeful of your own headlights reflected in this beast...

Too shiny to be street legal? Well there goes my mirror-car! Seriously, it just drove by. Should probably stop leaving my keys in the ignition. But you know what they say, "hindsight's 20/20". Unless your looking in your rearview and my mirror-car's behind you, IN WHICH CASE THAT SHIT IS BLINDING.

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots of a wasted Audi.

Thanks to Gargamel, who agrees it needs more neon underneath and enough subwoofers to rattle the wheels off BECAUSE THE MAN KNOWS CAR MODS.

    I just watched that episode to see the chrome process.
    IMO, that car shows a complete lack of imagination. Kind of funny considering where they started in the episode. The Imagitorium at Disney.
    The cool parts, chrome and wheels, were contracted out FFS. The intern that did the wheel lighting shows promise though.
    Not even lighting doing the profile of the roof..SMH. Also, it needs to be seamless even lighting, not spotty LED.
    I haven't even seen the movie, SMH.

    Wtf?? How can they call it Tron themed? The led lights sure but chrome paint?? Did they even watch the movie?

    Cool car but it should have been white or black for Tron.

  • Very cool!!! I want those seats!
