What if we tell you, this modified convertible will only cost you Rs 4 lakh? Well, that’s substantially less than the regular convertibles carrying lofty price tags. The only catch here is you need to own a Maruti 800. Yes, that’s true. This modified convertible car is the Maruti’s iconic 800 model that has been transformed into a convertible. India’s most loved car that ruled the roads for over two decades was taken off production few years ago. While we still miss the mini hatch, for those who own a 800 (model year 2006, 2007 or 2008) can get this new look for their car.
Modified by J S Design, this modified Maruti 800 convertible gets copious changes. Coloured in bright yellow, the custom Maruti 800 gets pronounced wheel arches, custom alloy rims with black finish and side skirts. The all-black door handles match well with the black treatment around the car. While the luggage rack on the boot and the dual exhaust tips have been booted. Up front, it gets new headlamps, that seem inspired by the Fiat Palio whereas the taillamps at the back have been sourced from the Chevrolet Spark. It also comes with a backward opening bonnet that looks cool. Read About-Meet This Modified Nissan Terrano Renamed ‘The Bull’
