i second that motion! it is heartbreaking to see some of the weird modifications people do to such beautiful cars, examples of which we've seen too many on this thread itself

Not sure if this is real or photoshop work but SS80 length seems to be reduced whereas front door remains same as original. So where that extra length have gone?

A member has spotted the car in flesh, and has provided three pictures from different angles, how can it be a photoshop job ?

It looks like a chassis chop job.

Although this SS80 mod has been executed well, the design could have been better. It looks a bit too short! Highly disproportionate! I think it would've looked infinitely better if they (the designers) had left about a foot between the front-door and the rear wheel-arch.

Is this a Safari's bullbar??
Hopefully he's got one on the front as well, else that'll be seriously stupid for whats already stupid for putting them on the wrong end.

Tail lights seem to be from the Sonata.

Apart from being completely tasteless, the execution is also pathetic.

Maybe a truck driver who owns this alto. To tell you i saw a BPO employees alto whose steering was secured with chains going through the steering on to the brakes to secure it from getting stolen.

I think this is a DC mod based on a Gypsy using a lot of Esteem parts. I remember the movie Dil To Pagal Hai had a similar DC designed car that SRK drives around in the movie.
