Cheers
The entire inspiration for this car came from the Thomas Crown Affair. If only i had a mustang The purist would have loved that!

@ Schakravarthy, those Gypsies are drool-worthy!
Thank you... We managed to do execute this in 15 days, but the planning and collecting of parts took a few weeks too. We only started once everything was ready to go.

I absolutely love old Mercs and while you won't find a car like this on my bucket list, I must congratulate for having rescued a W123 from the crusher. You have given it a new lease of life and whether everyone likes it or not, people are going to be talking about this 15 day makeover.

Live to drive indeed! Job done.
Thank you, we tried to keep it as simple as possible and made sure we didn't over style it.
I love benz's myself! In fact my every day driver is a 1994 W140. I think i have one blurry photo of it which i'll try and upload. I also have a W140 S600 which i'm working on now. As soon as thats ready i will have some better photographs of the two!

As someone mentioned earlier, Pierce Brosnan was driving an offroad spec Mustang in the "Thomas Crown Affair".

Anyone who's played UbiSoft "THE CREW" on PS or Xbox would know how awesome the offroad spec cars look!

Hats off Liv2Drv! Takes a good eye for detail and a wild imagination to execute (and succeed) with something like this... Haters gonna hate!
Cheers!! When you see the car in reality it has its issue's where we could have been a little more attentive. But considering this car is going to be used in Goa, we wanted to keep it a little rugged!
I am currently building a 61 Ford falcon, Doing something quite special to that as well..But nothing this drastic! A lot more attention to detail on this project!

I was on my way back from Mahapalika Marg, Mumbai, when this custom yellow Honda Jazz with a black roof, Custom front and back bumpers, side skirts and exhausts.
Caught my eye.

This car in my opinion has been modified meticulously! Quality job, Kudos to the owner. Bread well spent. 😎

That Honda Jazz looks sexy as hell. The owner has spent his bread in a very thoughtful manner.

Remove the black wheels from Vento and give it to the Yellow Jazz owner, there you are with an awesome looking Jazz!

The Vento is nice, but nothing special (at all) about the Swift.

The front of the car looks like an amateur job which has been poorly executed.

Nothing 'modified' on that Swift except those aftermarket head and tail lamps. Infact, de-badging would have added to the looks.
