Metallica frontman James Hetfield’s custom car won Goodguys’ 2014 Mother’s Custom Of The Year award during the Goodguys 32nd annual All American Get-Together in California. The car is a scratch-built vehicle that originally started as a 1948 Jaguar.
The car is called “Black Pearl.” It’s sculpted, handmade aluminum body is inspired by European and American cars of the 1930s.
Under the hood is a 375-horsepower 302 cubic inch Ford V8, but this car isn’t about power, it’s about style.
The Black Pearl also recently won the Sam Barris award as well as the Custom d’Elegance at the Sacramento AutoRama.
