One of the most humble cars in India, the Maruti Suzuki Alto has always been one of the top picks for budget-driven car buyers. It is the simplicity of Alto’s mechanics that has attracted many car change houses to customize according to their tastes and preferences. One such car modifier tried to create a unique car version using the Maruti Suzuki Alto as the base.
In a YouTube video uploaded to its channel Bikash Chowdhury Vlog, We can see this modified Alto in all its glory. However, even at first glance, this modified car looks nothing like the Alto. The exterior design of this modified Alto looks very heterogeneous with its loudness and styling like never seen before. All of Alto’s original body panels have been replaced with custom-made body panels here. The list of modified panels includes a diagonal bonnet, scooped housing for projector headlamps and round tail lamps, flared front wheel arch, custom grille and bumper.
The scissors get to the door
Other highlights of this custom-made two-door modified Alto are the Lamborghini-like scissor door that opens at the top, a sloping roof tapered to the back, a boot-mounted wing, and a fuel tank cap on the back of the boot. Since the car has undergone extensive changes with a two-door look and sloping roof line, it is excluded from the rear window panels and windshield. As part of the change, it doesn’t even get a boot compartment.
Although this modified Alto now has a unique two-door look and a standout design on the outside, the car remains a five-seater car, whose dashboard has been removed from the original Alto. The car has an aftermarket steering wheel, centrally placed touchscreen infotainment system, red accents on the center console, AC vents around, glove box, floor mats, power window switches and seats.
Although the presenter of the video, who was also the mastermind behind the customization work, did not elaborate on the engine changes (if any), the car is expected to be powered by a 0.8-liter three-cylinder engine, the Maruti Suzuki Alto. However, since the car sounds a little different and louder, it looks like the car has an aftermarket exhaust system.
This example of a heavily customized Maruti Suzuki Alto may look unique and cool from a distance, but go closer, and you’ll see several rough edges in the body panel. Also, driving such changes is illegal, as they completely change the originality of the car.
