RicedExotics.com is a site for gearheads that lampoons aftermarket exotic car modifications gone wrong. From a Barney-the-Dinosaur-purple Rolls Royce to a yellow Lamborghini Diablo with--count 'em all--eight exhaust pipes, it's clear that money doesn't always buy taste.

Aftermarket parts are hot for any car, not just exotics, but it's clear that these supercars took more inspiration from 'Fast & Furious' than 007.

Implications - The rise of the aftermarket automotive industry has enabled car owners throughout the world to customize their rides at any budget. Unfortunately, some design choices aren't for the best, and Internet sites cropped up to lampoon these aesthetically unappealing automobiles in a gearhead version of Web schadenfreude.
