The front fascia of the Muscle Coupe has a hint of the new Ford Mustang, especially the headlights and grille section. LED daytime running lights and projector headlamps are the other features adorning the face of the custom car.

Quite obviously, the side profile of the car is a highlight in itself thanks to the two-door body style, and the partitioned front window. The Muscle Coupe rides on HRS H120 17-inch custom painted wheels, and comes shod with 225/50R17 Dunlop SPORT tires.

    Firstlook took me to the childhood days when I used to fancy the mechanic from the neighborhood garage, who was my hero with his blacksmithish skills of modifying Premier Padminis, Standard, etc. !

    They ruined an octavia which itself looks quite well propotioned and elegant in the way it looks.These fancy swoops and curves anyways dont define a muscle car to say the least.Then there is the lack of finesse in the way it is put together.Sorry Guys….not quite a muscle car…..just weird

    Design lacks the muscle flair and overall proportions.
