Glowing Tron headphones weren’t the only thing Monster was proudly touting at CES 2011 in Las Vegas this year — the trendy soundsters’ booth also played host to this chrome-plated Tron-themed Audi A8, engineered by Pimp My Ride vehicular tricksters West Coast Customs, which (we imagine) is (probably) faster than a lightcycle.
The car was drawing quite a crowd, but with a few carefully placed elbows Crave was able to make its way to the front of the throng to bring you some sexy snaps of this shiny masterpiece.
The car itself is an Audi R8, a car whose electric version has graced the digital pages of CNET UK once before, thanks to its clever wireless-charging capabilities. Very sneaky stuff.
This version of the R8, however, isn’t quite so subtle — with glowing rims, glowing vents, a glowing back seat and a chrome finish so perfectly reflective that you can check your hair and makeup in the car’s bonnet. All the glowing bits gradually fade through a series of colours too, for added Tron-style excellence.
Those clever West Coast Customs lads have certainly done a good job adhering to the source material, even if this car is so shiny it’s not likely to be road legal — imagine catching an eyeful of your own headlights reflected in this beast…
The car will be featured in “an upcoming Tron-centric episode of the reality show Inside West Coast Customs” and as we mentioned above, the car isn’t the only Tron-inspired thing Monster is constructing — it’s working on a range of Tron: Legacy-themed audio products, including the insanely-glowy T1 headphones, which we’ve given the ears-on treatment, because we’re nice like that.
