Recently we ran an excellent story concerning some summer drop-tops that really are the creme de la creme. In that instance, a publication put together the Audi R8 Spyder, BMW 650i Convertible and Porsche 911 991 and let them square off.

And really there wasn't a loser, per se. If you wanted sportiness you went with the 911, if you wanted what I'd classify a "supercar light," -- THINK: like beer -- you opted for the R8, and if you wanted a simple cruiser, the BMW.

Now though they've upped the stakes with the next showdown. This time it features highly modified stock cars from the likes of Ferrari, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche, which have been changed up thanks to Mansory, Hamann and Gemballa.

Here's the tough part: Do I ask you WHICH is the ugliest/prettiest OR should we inquire about WHICH appeals most to you?
