Bob Wild’s Real Fire Flamed Taurus SHO

After losing his customized 2008 Chevy HHR SS in an accident, Bob Wild picked up this 2010 Ford Taurus SHO.  Not one to drive something that looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor, Bob began customizing his new car. 

The SHO came with the new 3.5 litre EcoBoost twin-turbo, a paddle shifted 6 speed automatic transmission, and all wheel drive put the 365 horsepower to the pavement.  The Taurus was upgraded with racing components.  Performance wise, Bob added an Airaid cold air intake, increasing throttle response and gaining a few miles per gallon. 

Bob also set out to change the look and feel of the Taurus.  Real fire airbrushed flames on the hood, fenders and doors, as well as underhood and bumper wolf murials were all added by Lucky Luciano Custom Paint. 

The interior features blue suede inserts in the seats, a Pioneer  DVD/stereo, 4-channel amp, Kenwood speakers, a 12 inch Kenwood sub, 2 Optima batteries, and a 26 inch Vizio TV in the trunk.  The Vizio gets its signal from the Pioneer head unit/DirecTV.

All of those modifications roll on 22 inch custom chrome wheels.

Arizona Auto Scene met Bob during a shoot with Lucky Luciano Custom Paint customers.  Although he has only been into customizing his cars for the past five years, Bob has been bitten by the bug.  I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of his creations in the future.
