Car tuning enthusiasts and companies gathered together ahead of the Essen Motor Show to show off some of their modified cars in the western German city on Tuesday.

Vehicles on display this time include a custom De Tomaso Pantera sports car, done up in the style of a Group 4 racing class model that existed from 1973-4, as well as a VW Polo modified to be remote controllable.

"We built this car to be among the first tuners of the future, to show what tuning will look like tomorrow or the day after," said Frenchman Julien Boyer about the VW, which features an electric engine and solar panels in the roof.

The Essen Motor Show will run from November 30 to December 8.
