Chevrolet Cruze Project ‘Yellow Transformer’ – In Images
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
A Chevrolet Cruze has undergone a complete makeover by Chennai-based Modsters Automotive, drawing inspiration from The Transformer’s Bumblebee character. The latter is based on the Chevrolet Camaro 2-door. And it doesn’t transform into a giant, playful-yet-menacing robot.
The front-end has a custom bumper with aggressive features, new hood with large intakes, gloss black grille area, custom HID headlamps with LED DRLs, wider wheel arches with side intake, BMW-style LED taillamps, custom rear bumper with faux exhaust pipes, and a large rear wing. The exterior body colour is finished in Solarbeam Yellow Metallic and rides on 17-inch black alloy rims.
It’s unclear if any upgrades have been made under the hood. The Cruze has a 2.0-liter VCDi diesel unit that produces 166 PS of max power and 380 Nm of peak torque. Transmission options were a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic gearboxes. The stock Cruze is capable of averaging 17.9 km/l (manual) and 14.81 km/l (automatic) fuel mileage.
