Great ride dude,

The car looks very plain, a bit of monograms and logo's here and there would do a bit of justice.

The alloys seems to be a bit out of sorts on the car, sorry if i am rude here.

I feel the car requires different pattern on the alloy.

Wow! Dude that is an amazing peice of work you guys have done.
Absolutely love those alloys there, bodykit is simple but elegant and the overall looks is simply amazing.
But just one question about the headlamps, is that i could'nt really figure out the reflector which looked a little old and out of character of the car, or maybe is it the angle of the picture shot at is making it look that way?
Or the way it looks as they might be projectors?

MR2 is Mazda i believe and is a mid-engined rear wheel drive as the name suggests-MR and thus the coupe look.
Cost now? Well would'nt really know if this one is still in production as the recent one is MR5 i guess.

@ abhinav:
Mr2 was made my toyota. it was a mid-engined sports coupe..
it was roughly around the price range of a supra.. depending on weather it was the GTS or the N-A version.

Default Toyota MR2

Hey dude, nicely done.

I too feel that this car particularly needs a better pattern for the alloys but otherwise the alloys are beautiful. Overall the looks are clean but a bit plain, do something more to spice it up a little.

@Abhik - Bro the headlights look like a DIY projector set up mod (like Noidaboy's M800), thus the reflector is painted black with the lens in between it. Is that correct?

I like the treatment of the front, not a big fan of the hop up on the side..
great execution though.. good work man..!

mazda series of cars usually have an X in the back. eg MX-5 miata, MX-6, RX-7 etc..

the one you are mistaking is the mazda MX-5 which is also know as the mazda miata,

Nice work done on the ride. Any peek pictures under the hood if possible. The ride surely looks to be mean and in a class of its own.
