We invited you to show your photoshop skills modifying the new VW CC, and here are some of the very best entries.

Jan 23, 2008 SHARE

Every time we run a Photochop Challenge, we can't believe just how good the entries are. And we love receiving your emails and illustrations to discover just what you've done. From experienced professionals to first-timers, photoshop to pencil, everybody has a slightly different interpretation of how they'd modify the chosen car.

This time is was the turn of VW's exciting new CC model. And we think some of these entries could even rival Volkswagen's own CC concept car on this month's cover.With that in mind, we contacted Derek Jenkins, VW's Chief Designer in America, to judge the Challenge and pick his choice for the best entry. He was equally impressed at the quality and struggled to find a favorite from the incredible offerings, but finally selected Drew Abejon's photochop.

"The CC is already a dynamic and aggressive vehicle," Derek explained, "but I like the way Drew has taken it to the next level without going over the top. It's definitely in the spirit of European tuning and has a believable DTM feel. It's very well done.

"I like the wheel placement, the elimination of the rear doors and the handles, the subtle carbon fiber placement. His execution is excellent and that's as important as the concept in a challenge like this," he continued.

So congratulations to Drew. He will receive a pair of Pro Spec 1.0 competition driving shoes from DC Shoes (www.dcshoes.com). These FIA-approved wonders come in several colors, cost around $200 and there should be a pair on Drew's feet by the time you read this.

Commenting on his work, Drew from Newport Beach, CA created a two-door version with shaved handles. He also raised the wheel apertures and enlarged the brake ducts in the front bumper. He then deleted elements such as the indicators, front plate and parking sensor before filling the grille with mesh and adding a small VW roundel. He made extensive use of carbon, adding it to the grille area, headlights, front lip, side skirts, rear wing and diffuser as well as the mirrors. The bser hood is secured by pins and had dual vents. He also added a tow hook, side exhaust, single wiper, antenna, ghost graphics and a front-mount intercooler. Inside, he installed a cage and deleted the passenger seat. With race suspension and wheels, the CC DTM transformation was complete.

On the following pages you'll find other entries to our CC Photochop Challenge. However, there were too many to include in this issue, so log on to www.eurotuner.com where you'll find all the entries. This would be a great place to visit if you're thinking of buying and modifying a VW CC yourself. From mild to wild, futuristic to old school, there's something for everybody among the diverse entries.A huge thank you to everybody who took part. And look out for Photochop Challenge 7, which will be announced in our next issue.
