Pink, mirror-finish paint. Or as Hamann says, "a color that exhibits nothing more but self-confidence." Basically, tuning company Hamann has created a vehicle that looks like it comes as part of the "Sex, Drugs and Rock N' Roll" Edition Barbie play set.

Its official name is the Mystère, based on the new-for-2013 Range Rover, and it's as ugly as it is shiny. As for the, um, body enhancements, Hamann created a four-part widebody kit out of carbon composite, adding 80 millimeters to the SUV's width. And by the way, don't just assume you know the full depth of the car's ugly from this fancy front three-quarter view. Have a good hard look at the nose, dead-on. Now you get it.

Hamann says that the 5.0-liter supercharged V8 has been fine-tuned and enhanced, but no power numbers are given. As for ride and handling, we can only imagine that it's significantly worse than the stock Range Rover, what with the car sitting a full 40 millimeters lower to the ground, now riding on 23-inch wheels wrapped in 305/30-series rubber.

We weren't able to get a look inside, but we can only imagine what's been done to the Rangie's interior. Hamann says the "in-house upholstery department can fulfill all your designer wishes" with a wide range of carbon, aluminum, leather, alcantara, double clear coat and stainless steel finishes.

Perhaps our favorite part about the 2013 Geneva Motor Show is seeing what the random coachbuilder companies roll out for our viewing pleasure, and this Hamann Mystère is a truly exceptional piece of show candy.
