Charalambous took six months to modify the BBS wheel centers, which he got off a Ferrari GT racer, to get the stance and offsets right. Inside, the trim matches the flat-green paint, and Charalambous has installed a new Marshall audio system, cupholder, and leather-trimmed seats. The best part? One of those BBS wheel centers now serves as the steering wheel.
