Vilner turned its customary and intensely luxurious attentions to a two-door Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited back in 2012, following that up this year with its take on the four-door version. A coat of lustrous black paint outside is brightened up LED headlights, foglights and taillights and layers of chrome laid on the grille, mirrors, door handles and fuel filler cap.
From modern cars to classics and even motorcycles, Vilner has been showing off its leather customization skills for years, but we have to admit we were a little skeptical when we saw that the Bulgarian company had gotten hold of a 1976 Chevy Corvette Stingray. Not to say the C3 'Vette couldn't benefit from an interior makeover, but we wondered how the company's modern leather work would match up with the car's classic styling.
Bulgarian tuner Vilner has done a job on the interior of the previous-generation Mercedes-Benz SL and left almost no surface untouched. Calling it "one of their bravest projects," the standard leather has been replaced with either antiqued brown Nappa leather or crocodile hide, the plastics have been covered in Alcantara with the same material lining the roof, and the wood has been redone, in some cases painted by hand, to match the decor.
Vilner has pulled back the curtain on its newest creation: the Bulldog. A modified Triumph Speed Triple, the Bulldog features a number of aesthetic tweaks to set it apart from its more staid siblings. A new single headlamp now rides in place of the factory bug-eyed dual-lamp unit, and designers swapped out the stock wheels for a pair of flashy OZ Racing pieces. The stock pipes were also ditched in favor of the blacked-out examples you see above. With custom leather work both on the saddle and al
Vilner has taken the time to give the BMW F800R a once over to create the Predator. Built for a wealthy Russian businessman, the machine received a complete aesthetic redesign with plenty of components hewn from carbon fiber.
Bulgarian tuner Vilner has some kind of Luxo-Ray that fires munitions packed with at least two tons of quilted leather and Alcantara, then aims it at just about everything as soon as it can be reloaded. The latest target is the Land Rover Defender Wood, making this the second time in a year that the Defender has come into Vilner's sights.
If you're looking to turn your Mercedes-Benz Vito into an executive-class van, Vilner has what you need. The company used its expertise on the German minivan to craft an interior inspired by private jets. With Nappa leather seating, an Alcantara headliner and mahogany details spread throughout the cabin, the Vilner Vito is suitably deluxe. Additional power outlets make it perfect for long-distance chauffeured travel, while a 19-inch LCD display and stocked mini fridge help keep passengers entert
No brand escapes the keen tuning eye of Bulgarian tuner Vilner, from the Camaro that first brought them to our attention, to the Scion iQ and Land Rover Defender that's kept them there. This time it's a take on the Mercedes G-Class that takes Cinderella for its inspiration.
We've been teasing the Rimac Automobili Concept One for the last two weeks, and finally got a glimpse of some studio shots of the electric supercar yesterday. Our team at the Frankfurt Motor Show finally turned their lenses on the EV with a ginormous 92-kWh of lithium phosphate battery pack (which we think is the biggest one available in a passenger car, unless you count the mysterious – and burnt – Kolibri pack in the DMB-converted Audi A2) and four individual motors (one for each w
As you can see from our coverage, there's been plenty to see and report from the halls of the Frankfurt Messe at the first major auto show of the post-summer season. But while most vehicles were displayed prominently under the bright lights in the big rooms, tucked away at the back of a supplier hall sat one of the most intriguing debuts of the show.
Even among the most capable of off-roaders, some are luxurious and some are decidedly spartan. One look at the bare-bones interior of a Land Rover Defender and you'll know exactly where it stands. But some will inevitably want their Defender decked out with all the comforts they'd expect of its big brother, the Range Rover, and for them, there's Vilner.
Allow us to rephrase a quote from the great Homer: First you get the Jeep, then you add the power, then you upgrade the interior. That's the plan of attack for this Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which has already been given a power boost courtesy of Hennessey, and now it's received close attention from the interior-obsessed minds at Vilner.
Nasko Vilner is the Bulgarian tuner best known for reworking interiors into luxurious cabins fit for a king. Vilner's latest creation, however, is best fit for a king living in the city. The Vilner iQ forgoes the cloth seats of its plebeian Toyota and Scion counterparts, and instead, the front thrones of the Vilner iQ are wrapped in Napa leather while the rest of the interior is covered in Alcantara.
You can admit it: None of you thought "the perfect Camaro" would come from Bulgarian tuner Nasko Vilner. Neither did we. Vilnus owns a company that designs vehicle interiors, and as the first Bulgarian with a 2010 Chevy Camaro – a V6 manual – he decided he needed to do something special with it.
