World’s best custom built car is tagged $1.5 million. The car was also awarded for America’s best modified car at the Detroit Autorama expo in 2014. The car is actually a 1964 Buick Riviera named ‘Rivision’. The car was bought from 39-year JF Launier from British Colombia in Canada. He bought it as a poor rusted version of 1964 Buick Riviera for £250.
When Mr Launier bought the car, the 1964 Buick Riviera was missing its doors and seats. Now we are going to show you how this car would look like after putting in 22,000 hours over a period of six years. It’s not just the time that JF Launier spent on it – he also spent a whooping £191,000 on this project.
He was so passionate while trying to complete this car and create a real piece of automobile art, that he had to remortgage his parental house. In the end Launier said it was worth it all. Let’s say a few words about the car – there is a 6.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8 Chevrolet engine under the hood. The top speed is limitted to 155 MPH. The car features all-chrome wheels, upgraded brake system, full chocolate brown leather interior. There are some modifications related to drag racing, drifting and pimp ride at the same time. All this makes it one unique ride that you always wanted.
The chocolate leather interior gives that 1964 Buick Riviera ‘Rivision’ a 60s look. Everything related to this vehicle is just awesome. The mechanics from JF Kustoms shop in Osoyoos stated that the owner of this muscle ride could sell it for the hefty price tag of $1.5 million. When speaking with the owner you would understand what it means to create a real show stopper. JF Launier speaks about customizing screws and he knows the exact number of them.
This is the insane 1964 Buick Riviera ‘Rivision’ – the reason why J.F. Launier won the 2014 Ridler Award. It’s not just the regular show car – this one was seen running hard on the race track in Vegas for the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge.
The owner of this beauty is real fan – thank you for taking it to the track. After spending over 6 years and 22,000 hours on it you should really have the balls to run it hard!
