Default Make Your Own Car!

Take a scenario that you could go to the supermarket and shop for parts of the car and assemble it yourself. Wouldn't that be great?
For example you could have the body of a civic, lights of an accord and engine of the laura.

These are the subcategories:

Segment:

Body:

Bumpers:

Wipers:

Horn:

Exhaust Design:

Suspension:

Handling characteristics:

Safety Features (from which car):

Front lights:

Rear lights:

Front Grill:

OVRM:

Engine:

Gear Box:

Dashboard Design:

Seats:

OEM Alloys:

Brakes:


ONLY CARS AVAILABLE IN INDIA! NOT ABOVE 25LAKHS IN VALUE.

RULE OUT MERCs, BMWs, etc.

this would be mine:

Segment: D

Body: Accord

Bumpers: combi of Accord and old city which had a three piece one

Wipers: Civic

Horn: BEST Bus (scares the life outta anyone)

Exhaust Design: Civic

Suspension: Soft like camry

Handling characteristics: Octavia vRS

Safety Features (from which car): Accord

Front lights: Camry

Rear lights: Civic

Front Grill: SX4

OVRM: Accord

Engine: vRS

Gear Box: Laura AT

Dashboard Design: Civic

Seats: innova

OEM Alloys: accord

Its actually easy to say that make your own car but have you ever thought about how much and what it takes to design and manufacture a car.
