Yes, it's a Gypsy make over. Check the high roof cutting. The concept is good but poor make over

I really wonder whether it was a Gypsy, for it was quite wide. Someone in the Bangalore modifier circles may know exactly what this is. It has a KA 01 number plate.

EDIT: Just did a SMS inquiry with the RTO using the number plate. Yes, it is a Gypsy.

@Samurai - More pics of the same car - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/collec...ml#post1696771

From the close look I had, the mod job and fit and finish looked very unprofessional, and a straight fit to our ' weird and wacky mod jobs' thread.

Saw this abandoned 'beauty' few months back.
Another straight ft to our beloved thread.
(Mods: I didn't see the car in any of the previous pages, but I might have missed. Please delete if this is a repeat post. Sorry for back to back posts - I was having difficulty in uploading pictures today morning. Please merge this with previous post, if necessery)

It is looking wider than it should because of rounded and bulging edges added around the tails.

It is a Gypsy. Been driving one all my life. This one got insane wheel arches hence the broad look. Rear body has been raised. You can still see the original place where the rear portion of the body ends and the hood starts. The door, handles, rear door, hinges, bonnet etc. everything is Gypsy. Even the dash is Gypsy. Well owner somehow to make it to look more like a 'Cheapsy'.

Nice one this.
Simply hilarious couldn't believe my eyes

You reckon his insurance premiums bound to go up as some simpleton thief may mistake this for some exotic import? The new Zero Series concept from Munich perhaps.

On the other hand, i can also see the legal eagles at BMW getting ready for a fight. Got to check on the BMW stock price, catch you later. Keep'em coming.

Looks cute and would have made Dilip Chabria proud.
Daewoo would have paid him royalty and started production.

I feel its a bad P.S job. Look at the rear left wheel you will know. Pic and car is original and not morphed.
