Christian Audiger’s Cadillac Escalade-based Audigier VIF1 fails to impress

Many of you have probably seen the Cadillac Escalade-based Audigier VIF1 created by Christian Audigier of Von Dutch and Ed Hardy clothing line fame. For those who missed noticing this attention-grabbing car, here is some info. The car was released in 2008 and marked Christian Audigier’s foray into the luxury coach-building line. The VIF1 boasts of a raised roof, stretched rears and doors, customized fabricated body panels, and grills with high-intensity lighting, as well as 24-carat gold-plated emblems and exhaust tips. The wheels too boast of hand-painted details. The interior, on the other hand, is much more elegant and luxurious as it offers everything from a 26-inch flat-panel TV to wooden cabinets as well as a maple console that houses a six disk alpine DVD changer, Sony Playstation 3, Apple iPod, and an Apple Mac mini 80GB computer. The leather and blue-dyed interior are definitely much better than the bizarre exterior.

Sure to be a show stopper (for the wrong reasons), this car is definitely one of a kind (and hopefully the last as well). I hope Christian Audigier sticks to designing clothes only.
