Best customs modifications on Indian cars

Today we are going to show you some of the best customized Indian cars.

1. Maruti Suzuki 800 (by JS Designs)

Mr. Jagjit Singh, the man behind JS Designs, took 3 years to complete this project. The design and bodywork of the Maurti 800 has been changes completely. Painstaking effort has gone into giving this car a high end finish and fit. The front grille of the car has been removed to give this car a much cleaner look. Also, the standard headlamps have been replaced and instead of them Fiat Palio’s headlamps have been installed. The Maruti 800 convertible comes with all new windscreen, bonnet, front bumper and A-pillars.
Two doors have been wipes off the Maruti 800 in this version. The entire characters of the side profile of the car has been changed by the additional of faux but stylish air vents and creases. The rear of the car has also been totally reworked. The Maruti 800 convertible looks really stylish and classy with its racy red finish.

2. Extremely Modified Mahindra XUV500 (By Hot Machines )

This XUV 500 has taken modifications to an extreme level. Some of the modifications on it are, a full-body matte black vinyl wrap, a unique front grille, huge non-functional Air-scoops on the hood and a huge roof scoop too. It also has an off-road style roll cage/body protection bars and also a snorkel air-intake system which makes this SUV look like an off road ready beast.
The XUV has also been equipped with an electric winch on the front end, exposed recovery shackles, convex ORVM on bonnet edge (Land cruiser style), LED light bar right across the windscreen, LED spot lights, rear ladder, jerry can, hi-lift jack and F1 type brake lamps underneath the body, among others.
All these modifications are not as extreme as the wide monster truck tires fitted to this car. The wheels are so wide that they cut outside the bodyline of the XUV by a good 6-7 inches, which is very, very wide indeed almost truck-like. Though this might make the XUV look like a monster, it also has its own disadvantages. The size and additional weight of the wheels and the additional friction caused by the extra wide tires puts additional stress on the drive-train components like the clutch, the differential, the gearbox as well as the engine, but it seems as though the XUV is taking it all in its stride and the car has been running without problems, though the top speed, acceleration and fuel efficiency figures have all definitely dropped.
These extreme modifications were carried out by Hot Machines, an Auto accessories store located in Bangalore and the XUV can often be found in and around Kammanahalli, in Bangalore.

 3.Honda Civic

The exterior modifications on this 2007 Honda Civic include Mugen RR bumpers, skirts, spoiler and bonnet. The paint job is a combination of gloss black and matt red with stickering. Headlamps have dual projectors with angel eyes and the tail-lamps are clear lens LEDs. It has been given 16-inch alloys with wider, low-profile 205/55 tyres.
On the interiors the car gets matching black and red leather upholstery with a black and red dashboard theme.  The music system is a Pioneer DVD-based touchscreen.
It also gets some performance modifications which include a Garrett turbocharger, intercooler, customized air intake, performance clutch, and customized exhaust system.

4.Mitsubishi Lancer

 This car is rather simply and tastefully done. This Lancer is a real red-blooded rally car from the looks of it, although the mods are mainly cosmetic. It includes a custom body kit, with EVO4 inspired bonnet and grill. It gets twin projector headlamps, 15-inch alloys and clear lens component tail-lamps. The front bumper houses large Hella 700 fog lamps in typical Mitsubishi EVO style. The interiors get beige customized leather upholstery with new mats and re-finished dashboard.

5.Maruti Swift

Maruti Swifts are among the most often modified cars and with good reason, given its sporty performance and potential for modification. This Swift here has been given a complete air-brush paint job. It features a custom body kit and bonnet design. It gets smoked projector headlamps and LED tail-lamps. The bumpers have been extended and the suspension has been lowered slightly.
The Swift also gets some performance upgrades which include a customized air intake, exhaust and fuel injection system

6.Honda Accord

The Accord is a tuner favourite what with loads of tuning options available for Honda engines worldwide. However, “The Sith” Accord from AutoPsyche is less about hop up kits and more about design mods. The car gets a body kit in mean black, tall wheels, thick rubber and a snarly Remus exhaust. Inside, the stereo comes into focus with interesting bits that will keep audiophiles glued. This is a 2010 Honda Accord that has been given a classy makeover. It includes a customized body kit with LED smoked tail-lamps, daytime running lights, and projector headlamps with halo rings. It gets 18-inch alloys with low-profile 245/40 tyres. It also gets a customized exhaust system. The biggest mods have been to the sound system with dual subwoofers, component speakers and four-channel amplifier. This car is a discotheque on wheels!

7. Chevrolet Cruze LTZ 

The Chevrolet Cruze is the most powerful turbo diesel D-Segmenter in India and a hot favourite amongst folks who like big torque and straight line acceleration. The custom Cruze from AutoPsyche, called the Project Cruzer II, derives inspiration from the World Touring Car Championships.
A racy paint job follows. Under the hood, the Cruze gets an ECU remap for more power and torque while a K&N cold air intake and a revised exhaust allow the remap to perform to its true potential.

  • Custom “Gulf Racing” paint job
  • Custom spoiler, front and rear bumper
  • 18 inch alloy wheels running on 235/40 tyres
  • LED Head and tail lamps
  • ECU remap, K&N intake & quad exhaust
  • Bilstein B14 coilover suspension
  • Carbonfiber exterior and interior detailing
 8.Maruti Suzuki Swift RS

Maruti Suzuki officially introduced the Swift RS only last year, on the second generation model of the car. While the Swift RS launched by Maruti Suzuki is merely a bolt on body kit, the Swift RS from AutoPsyche is a different animal altogether. Looks wise, the car is just average but the serious kit under the hood means that this Swift RS is a seriously fast machine.
 The custom Swift is a based on the first generation model featuring a 1.3 liter petrol engine. A turbo kit is the major performance hop up option while the body gets a complete once over, replete with scissor doors, custom parts and a panoramic sunroof.

  • Custom bumpers and body skirts
  • Vented hood design
  • Blue and white paint scheme
  • Projector headlamps
  • Scissor doors
  • 16 inch alloy wheels and upsized rubber
  • Leather sports seats
  • Webasto panoramic fabric sunroof
  • Turbo kit
  • Tein coilover suspension
  • Mintex BRAKES
9. Tata Safari

 Big Daddy Customs, a well-established and popular company that is into modifying cars, has now worked on Tata Safari. Though you may find the modified European luxury crossover a little out of your budget, you won’t be able to overlook it for sure. There are several changes in the design of this modified Tata Safari. However, these changes work well together to make this car a premium product.Though the modified Tata Safari may not be able to compete the Ranger Rovers or Audi’s as far as the styling and design are concerned. But it is vital for you to know that this modified car costs much less than the ones being manufactured by the above mentioned automakers.
 Consider the Range Rover Evoque, for example. This car can cost you nearly Rs. 55 Lacs in the Indian market. On the other hand, the Tata Safari modification by Big Daddy Customs will cost you just Rs. 8 Lacs. The modification process consumes about 3 to 4 months to complete. Though the modified Tata Safari may not have the same looks as that of a replica of one of the premium, high end crossovers. Nonetheless, the car is good enough to grab the attention when it passes on the road.

10.Maruti Esteem
 We all love the Bugatti Veyron but how many of us can afford it? Probably one in a million can or even less. But it is not that difficult to modify your old car to look like one. And what better than our very own Maruti Suzuki Esteem to play host to the modification. Today we have for you a customised Maruti Esteem that has been converted into a Bugatti Veyron by our country’s very own SF CARZ (Hyderabad).
So let us tell you how it is done! The modified/customised cars are built from fiber glass. Donor cars are the ones who play host to the modifications (Esteem in this case) and the MODIFIED CARS are built around the donor cars. How good the replica is and how good the quality of the replica is depends on the custom builders. A company as good as DC can modify your original car to look like an all new car whereas local customisers through out the country will fetch you replicas of supercars you can’t own around a donor car.
Customisations vary from an overhaul of the engine to merely adding a new body on top of them. Customisers who are in the game for a long haul usually go in for tuning of engines as well alongside physical modifications so as to enable the engine take on the additional modifications.
