While CES is and should be known for its unabashed display of geekery, it has also become a venue to display some top-notch custom automobiles. Take for instance the Ford Flex at Sony's XPlod display. Sony says it wears an "urban-themed custom paint job" on the outside and a long list of the company's XPlod audio products on the inside. The urban decor impressively even extends to the doors' kickplates and interior frames. Now that's attention to detail.

A couple of booths over (which in CES speak means several thousand yards away), Monster skipped the fancy paint and just went for the fancy cars. Their super-blue Bentley GT looked almost stock until closer inspection revealed Monster's logos imprinted on the roof and the Bentley trunk badge replaced with the Monster's corporate red M. Monster's booth was also home to a Lambo Murcielago whose exterior was mercifully left unscathed by such blatant branding.

Other cars of note were Toyota's Ducati Tacoma from SEMA and a really bad-ass, turbocharged, LSX-powered Cadillac wearing some sweet leather seats and a Strut S grille and wheels. Check out the gallery for high-res photos of the second round of the cars of CES. You can also peruse the Round 1 cars by clicking here.

      Damn I'm still loving that Tundra Ducati idea. Screw having a trailer to go to the track; to bad your truck can't really be used for anything else since its a full time garage.

        There was a Tundra in those pictures?

        All I saw was the Desmosedici.

      I wonder if anyone would notice if I just wheeled that Ducati out the door...

      That Top Tuner Caddy is insane. They did the Sky and Solstice last year/two years ago and those were just as insane. You have to see them to really appreciate the work that went in. There's not a single piece on any of them that wasn't altered in some way.

        I will sell my family for that CTS.

      Monster should be worrying about their lawsuits and not sponsoring events with ridiculously expensive custom cars... That’s just my opinion.

      A blue Bentley!?


      That's a No.

      That blue Bentley looks as stupid as Paris Hilton's Pink Bentley. And I don't mean stupid in a good way.

      Horrid.... all of it.


      besides the Ducati
