We're not quite sure how we missed this one when it was released back in 2008, but we're sure it had something to do with our feeble minds not wanting to comprehend the ghastly over-designed styling and baby blue paint job. After successfully launching multiple internationally acclaimed, over-hyped clothing brands, Christian Audigier had the desire to create his very own custom luxury coach-building firm with the Audigier VIF1 representing his very first foray into custom cars.

While the exterior makes us relapse into memories of a bad Red Lobster experience, the interior is truly where it's at with the kind of luxurious appointments you'd expect to see in a chauffeured cruiser. With plenty of leather, blue-dyed suede and birds eye maple, you might be able to forget the ghastly exterior appointments. If you've got a sick desire for pain or slightly less than horrible vision, check out the gallery above. You've been properly warned.
