Icon Electric 1949 Mercury Coupe

Jonathan Ward´s company, Icon, has been bringing a fresh perspective to custom vehicle design, with amazing custom rebuilds of classic vehicles of the past. The latest gem to roll out of their workshop is this spectacular 1949 Mercury Coupe, a car that looks old on the outside, but is new on the inside. Part of the Derelict series, the unique car has an untouched-looking exterior, with an overdone patina that looks cool over the greyish green paint. Underneath tough, is where the work has been done, it is now powered by a transmission-less dual electric motor that produces 470 lb-ft of torque and 400-hp. And thanks to a Tesla Performance 85kWh battery, it is capable of 150 to 200 miles of range and a 90 minute full recharge capability. Inside, there are lovely period-appropriate fabrics and leather details, electric windows, digital gauges with a vintage design, new switches, bezels and so forth, which operate modern components.

They finished it of with a beautiful blue and matte back pai...

1961 Triumph TR4

Found back in 2009 rusting away in a Kentucky barn, this stunning 1961 Triumph TR4 has been brought back to its former glory with a striking color scheme. The TR4 is one of the quintessential British roadsters of the 60s and became a celebrated rally car. This rare early example of the model now wears a deep coat of black paint, complemented by menacing black wire wheels, and a clean, bumper-less look on the body. Inside, a fresh, custom red leather cabin breaks up ...
