Vossen 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Any car will look better, even one that didn’t look so hot in the first place…

Thankfully, Chevrolet have done a great job of styling (and engineering) the Impala and if the extent of the modifications is not excessive, it wears them well. This Impala is riding on Vossen wheels (VVSCV3 and VVSCV4), that are of a simple and elegant design.

2013 Audi RS5 “Pissed-Off Stormtrooper” by OSS Designs and Vossen

Created with a little help from Vossen Wheels, which described the RS5 Coupe’s angry looks as a “pissed off stormtrooper” in a nod to the white-clad elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire from the Star Wars movies, the Audi features a makeover that starts with the front end and OSS Designs’ colorful LEDs that surround the factory lights.

The smoked headlamp lenses and the gloss-black finish between the lights and the grille, complete the front-end updates. The tune continues with custom side skirts, wider rear fenders with vents, rear diffuser and bumper, plus a ducktail rear spoiler integrated into the boot, which supposedly works with the RS5’s stock retractable rear spoiler. The 20-inch Vossen VVSCC5 concave alloy wheels complete the look.
