Default Ever seen a Maruti Suzuki ESTEEM SLR ? ? ?

Hi guys,

Saw this on the road last week. I couldnt resist it. I stopped my car and jumped out with my cam and got this.



The car was modified with a lot of effort gone into it. And I'm sure you'll like it if you see it in flesh than in these pics.



These modifiers (whoever they're) has talent and lots of it. I think so.

What do you guys say?

personally i think its damn hilarious...it should be in the bad car day thread..
specially the big suzuki emblem right in the front.....like the idea though but i dont think it really looks all that nice ..the sonata lights also look a bit too big and out of place......nice try though
lol

The modifier did the best he could...front end looks OK while the rear is plain sick. Anyways, looks much better than the norm. esteem.

The SLR is like the main attraction to designers, cuz we've had pix of a SLR Lancer on the forum too

Bad car day or not.. you have to give the dude credit for the workmanship(in the front) n his imagination(for getting this whacky job)
And its very well made.

Though i personally wouldn't be caught dead driving it.

I think though It was a copy,that guy has some talent in him to turn an etseem into a SLR.
The work may not be good looking,but a lot of effort must have gone in.
Who would have thought that sonata's lights could be used like that.
I think guys like these should be given proper ideas and then their works will speak for them.

infact i think the back isnt bad while the front is a lil too much. nice idea but such ideas should remain ideas lol.

Unhappy Ouch!

Call me slow but i JUST DON'T get the idea behind losing the identity of a car !!!!!
modifications are cool as long as they dont try to make the car into something its not (like an esteem into an SLR)phew..........!
hurts my sensibilities..........


P.S.but yeah full marks for effort
