Default The Evil Twins -JBL Swifts -No more Requests

Hello hello hello.

Here is a curtain raiser
There are 2 swifts being made. I won't tell you right away where they are, as they are not complete.

Neither will I be able to post pictures now, not till the cars are actually finished. We're a little behind schedule so the installer needs peace and quiet to finish the job.

But here is a brief introduction. 2 Suzuki Swifts will be made into Demo cars. The 2 will be exact opposites, cosmetically. Twins, but absolute opposites.

There will be some wonderful body modifications made, along with all the other cool stuff most BHPians love. Wheels, seats, touring kit, lights all that stuff. More on that as the thread chugs along. Remember, this is not exactly a pictorial essay on the installation, but pictures of the installation will follow in the weeks to come.


The cars will be unveiled in Mumbai on the 22nd of November at the Autocar Performance show. As of now they are not complete, but they will be complete by then.

Exact opposites? How? One SPL and the other SQ? Dr.Jekyll and Mr.Hyde huh?

  • JBL GT5-963 6X9 coaxial speaker X 2 pairs

The idea of this thread (for now) is to get you all charged up and anticipating
While the cars will be unveiled simultaneously in Mumbai at the Autocar Show, they will then visit Bangalore the very next week for the Vaahan Yatra.

From there they will visit Delhi for a few days, before they split and tour India for 8 months seperately.

Enjoy!
