Default Convertible Zen

Something similar to the Chopped Safari. Atleast this one has a roof. Would have looked good if it was given a good rear job. And should have had 2 doors instead of one.

Oh My God Why would somebody make such a piece of ****. I mean look at the thing the hood looks like a badly fitted toupee on a bald man's head and the rear with the tailgate cut out just looks horrible. And the fender dosen't match the rest of the car. Terrible work IMHO

I remember seeing a covertible Cielo around here which simply had everything above door level chopped off including all three pillars and roof only the windshield surround was left out. And of course it had no roof, again a terrible waste of time & money.

As far as I know in both cases the cars when on the move, specially on our billiard table smooth roads would have more flex and wobble than a bowl full of fruit jelly! I wouldn't be caught dead even sitting in one of these leave alone driving them.

i personally feel it looks bad but i dont want to be rude.but i feel if it were down on the carbon fiber zen it would have looked much better.

Thumbs down

Hey, I had seen this couple of days back in Chembur. I was driving so could not take a pic then. It really looks pretty ugly...I think the owner must be some mechanic, he must have used the Zen as a guinea pig to test his modifying skills...

Most of the problems with this car is the top itself.
V12 , see if you can get a pic with the top down and the windows rolled down. Might look better. Some rag tops dont look good with the top up.
