Yeah this one was showcased at the Mumbai Motor Show couple of months back. There is also a thread on this with more pictures. I must say, great job done with the body work! They could have given a more authentic feel by lowering the car and giving all around large disc brakes instead of the tiny ones.

It looks like a fabulous job, me thinks. Any idea if performance has increased, since weight must have come down.

You took the words right out of my mouth!

It would fool almost anyone. Even I would be, if I see it, parked, say 100 ft away. But it needs some attention to detail. For example, more realistic brakes and a seriously beefed-up exhaust (although nothing would be able to replicate the intoxicating wail from that lovely 4 litre V8).

Anyone who wants to see this in person can go to Cadell Road, where Executive Modcar Trendz has a show window where this is displayed. Going towards Bandra, it's a little ahead from Siddhivinyak. Seen it often, it does look quite decent.

I think, they simply bolted an F430 kit (Plenty available abroad, for MR2/ Peugeot 406) onto the Corolla chassis. Looks a little too tall and bulbous.

+1!
I too suspect the same, the finesse seems just "too much" to be a desi-mod. If someone proves us wrong, I'd be more than happy that India does have some serious workmanship!

super modification the car looks just like a Ferrari from outside. However, the paint job looks a bit off (it might be the lighting)

Very true Vishnu. If the entire car is out of fibre glass, one needs to look no further. Making a one-off with fibre glass isn't going to be cheap/cost effective with so much work going into making the moulds out of sheet metal first.

I have seen this car in person. The work was carried by Faisal bhai's firm Executive ModCar Trendz (EMT)

Its a complete fiberglass body, put on a Corolla.
Even the interior has been given a new look.
Its more like a prototype and would cost around 10lakh INR for a customer (don't know if this is including the base car).
The car did grab attention, But I still felt some more details could be taken care of as I did find a few rough edges at some points.

By the way, EMT even had a DC type Innova at the stall.
