I dint get u .. these were not modified, IMHO this is an original version of the Maruti Zen under the name of Carbon and Steel. I dont exactly remember if both Carbon and steel were 2 doors or not.

You are right, both Carbon and Steel were two door models. Only difference, Carbon was black and Steel was silver.

I think I am having some problem digesting the old Zen's design! BTW Is that a torch or a headlamp?
Any rear pics available? Also, I think I am not able to see spoilers on cars! This one also doesn't have one.

Anyways, had a nice time laughing!

Yup, thats a factory 2-door model.
Carbon was black and steel was silver color, both 2 door models.
They were a limited run.

Woah ! Not bad

Looks like it has gained inspiration from the KITT car (from Knight rider series) and the cars ancestor was the DODGE CHARGER

But, hey wait a minute, seems like the car has a matte paintjob/vinyl wrap, then what is "chrome" housing doing around the fog lamps ? LoL

This thread should change its name.

Very very few vehicles here can be termed under "tastefully" modified.

The rest should come under a thread named " have money, but no aesthetic sense" !!!

For some reason, I am curious to see the alloy pattern on the yellow OHC. Looks like a deep lip from the sides.

The white civic is cool

A Bhpian's E60 BMW 530d has just got a lip-smacking set of shoes from BC Forged.

We've done a photoshoot, pics will be up asap.

There is a drop of 40kg in unsprung weight.

He says, "the car now flies!"
