Default Good looking REVA..? Here we go!

I spotted this at Forum mall few weeks back. I am not a big fan of stock REVA exterior design but this one really looks cool, Interior was even better.

The roof kinda reminds me of Amby. But the interior looks good. Nice catch.

Looks like the roof has been changed.
Almost resembles vaguely like an Amby roof.
But you are right, It Does look good.

I suppose the interiors are quite an improvement over stock, but that roof is anything but good looking. Amusing to see someone tinker with a Reva. Are those rims stock? I faintly recall one of the Reva variants coming equipped with alloy wheels.

And the interior too looks to be done well.

Strange,quirky are the adjectives that come to my mind, but then it is subjective.

Although my initial reaction was "you've got to be kidding", after reading other replies, I tried to like it; but I find the roof slightly out of place. Maybe it would have been better had it been flush with the rest of the rear.

But really good interiors and alloys!

I bet that customization must've cost him more than the vehicle itself!

PS : Any idea on what material was used for the roof?

the reasons why i appreciate the efforts even more are.
1. I have never seen a modified Reva before.
2. There isn't much room to work with in the first place, so i think it's a pretty decent job. it looks a lot better than the stock on atleast.

^^ All said and done, This is still running with the temporary registration. We are not even supposed to change the colour of the vehicle pre/post registration [per law]. But, can someone modify the roof [of course, its a different colour !

In all probability, I think its a test drive or a new REVA version.

that looks like a removable hard top guys, so i am guessing it could be a coupe/convertible variant? was this under test or something? would be super cool if this variant comes out in india.

The more I look at it, The more it looks like a Smart to me. Could this be a removable hard top?

Looks like Smart Amby to me.Could not digest the external design-the interiors are cool though.Unfortunately it is not my liking. Another expensive car like the Prius to prove our eco-friendly nature?

This looks like the Reva Zephyr concept. Was showcased quite a while back but it never saw light of the day. Its a convertible with a removable hard top or a fold-able soft top.

C'mon fellas!

Agree they aren't the head-turners but they're the ones keeping the air clean.

Without getting into a debate about that, how about we appreciate the owners who decide the buy these cars - not because they can't afford better but decide to do something about the environment. While we go about merrily burning petrol and diesel in our fancy cars, they drive these "ugly" things which serve the purpose and don't harm much either.

Just my thought - let's keep this thread to the "good" part of Reva.
