How to make your old Corolla look COOL

Kaustubh

Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store.Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

We love Toyota cars for their impeccable quality and reliability. But Toyotas (apart from a few models) aren’t necessary what one would call COOL. Take for example the Corolla-Civic equation: Both were launched somewhere around the same time and cost more or less the same. But over the years, the Civic has become every college boy’s dream car and the Corolla has become a 3 star Hotel’s pick up car. No one really aspires to a Corolla.

A Ferrari F430 based on a Toyota Corolla

So what can you do if your old Corolla is not getting you enough eye balls? You can ring Executive Modcar Trends and convert it into a….wait for it…. Ferrari F430!

Total cost 10L

Yes! Underneath all the Red bodywork beats the heart of an old Corolla. The complete car has been redesigned to make it a 2 Seater. The entire bodywork is fibre glass and as a result is 20% lighter than the donor car. The interior has also been revamped to make it look like a sportscar by removing the plastic wood of the donor car and replacing it with chrome.

wheels are a big giveaway

The cost of all this malarkey would be around 10 lakhs. And I must say, for the money, it is an extremely good replica car. The 2 places where it gives away are the wheels and the gap between the tyre and the fender 😉

Don’t like a Ferrari? They can do a Lambo for you as well 😀
