Crafting Custom: The Black Pearl

Forget school of rock, Metallica Frontman James Hetfield should teach a lesson or two at the school of rides. This is the Black Pearl: the completely scratch-built, award winning, custom car. It was put together with the help of Southern California’s Marcel and Luc De Lay. The renowned coachbuilders started with an 8×10 drawing and some steel sheets and ended up with a masterpiece. Check out what makes the Black Pearl tick:

  • Custom chassis
  • 1948 Jaguar Mk 4 sedan frame walls
  • 375-hp 302 cubic inch Ford V8 + Ford C4 automatic box
  • Ron Mangus interior
  • Art deco style

Take it all in..right down to the swoop:
