IMHO, the Huyndia Getz was a very beautiful looking car, and that inspite of this she could not do well in India and had to be replaced.

I some time fail to understand, why people like quirky cars.

Extra lights in center could have improved outcomes of Getz. Littler bigger should look better, a realistic pig with it's nose.

What the hell is with those nostrils?
are they lights?
why are they pointing down?

why the scoop on roof?
what possible purpose could it serve?
or did he get confused with the nostril-lamps and the scoop, and interchange them?

why didnt he go the whole hog, and use proper headlight mods?
why sticker them to get the bifurcated look?

why couldnt he have used black?

this guy raises more questions than surendra mohan pathak's novels!!

Looks like someone couldn't decide on which color to repaint his car so decided to try them all!

Well that is definitely one confused soul!!

On the other hand, just wondering what will his registration certification say about the color of the car?? Are such things allowed?

That zen is inspired from this old gen Polo, also seen similar 800 few years back at Bhopal.

Who is doing this to these cars?

And doesnt he know that his business is going to suffer once word gets out?
Or is top gear in town, with one of their challenges?

That wing, isnt that the shape that usually goes onto the boot of a three box?

The guy is super intelligent. A raft is all you need in Gurgaon during monsoons.

And looks like the hump did its job well

But seriously why is that thing inverted? To catch things slipping from that "carrier" up there?


Absolutely. I noticed the inverted wing much later .

Why do companies spend millions on R&D of these bumpers.

If the chrome bumper guards were not enough,now we have guards made out of hardware pipes. God save those who bump into these.

EEKS!! Have money- will do anything. These guys know well how to ruin a good looking car for sure. It reminds me of the movie "China Gate" : Mere man ko bhaya.. maine kutta kaat ke khaya.

Somehow I am liking what's been done to RR sport, maybe some other color combination will make it looker e.g black and white.

PS: Can any of our In-house photoshop experts do it and post it here.
