Most cars can benefit somewhat from a bit of custom tuning and cosmetic work. It is easy to go overboard, however, as Classe Gustafson, Elvis Häggbom and Kenny Kyrk have done with this Toyota Prius.

The body has been completely restyled, courtesy of a Volvo XC90 body kit. The doors and windows have all been modified or omitted in some form. The Prius got air suspension, 20-inch wheels and oversized front brakes. Inside, a custom dashboard, brand new center console and racing seats give the Prius a bold new look.

As for technology, it's hard to top its 4,400-watt stereo system, five subwoofers, eight speekers, 15 LCD screens and tablet PC with wireless internet. The stereo system is measured on the Richter scale.
