Honda may have launched the tenth generation Civic in India today but enthusiasts will agree that nothing can replace the 8th generation model earlier sold in India. It was one of the most popular sedans during its time. Even today, it is a hot favourite among the car fanatic crowd of the country due to its smitting looks and mod potential. In the past, we have seen various versions of modified Civics in India ranging from wildly modified ricers to hardcore engine remaps. The video below, however, showcases a modified Civic done so nicely that we were almost pulling out our chequebooks for it. Checkout the video by GOKZ MOTOGRAPHY to watch the car in its full glory before we get onto its details.
The first thing to catch attention on this mod job is its catchy blue and black paint job along with that stanced low rider look. This car has the ability to take your breath away while passing, a quality not many cars or mod jobs posses. Another highlight of this Civic is those ultra gorgeous rims by Radi8 shod on with low profile tires. They alone deserve a separate mention as they add a lot of appeal to the car. Adding to the tastefulness are those sexy ORVMs, finished in carbon fibre look.
To let you know, this Civic is not permanently stanced but rather has been equipped with an air suspension. Bagged is the term given to such low rider cars which have air suspensions. This means that the car’s suspension can be lifted up at the touch of a button, enhancing its practicality in daily use. Also, air suspension fitment is quite expensive as compared to simple stancing but is useful as the car can be used on daily basis. The car is also equipped with a sunroof.
A new body kit has been fitted onto the car which makes it look hot. The whole modification is done by 360 Motoring, Calicut, which is one of the best known garages in India. The body kit contains several bits like new front and rear bumpers, new diffuser and lip spoiler along with side skirts. A distinct carbon fibre finish is omnipresent on the car, from the exteriors to the interiors. The blacked out bonnet has received air scoops on either side which further give the car a sporty look.
Moving to the rear end, it is dominated by a huge fixed wing with a carbon fibre finish. Though it may not serve any dedicated purpose here, it for sure raises the hotness bar up a few notches. The boot lit is again finished in a carbon fibre look. The rear diffuser is a blacked out unit with an exhasut tip at its either side. Also, the exhaust system is an aftermarket unit by Valvetronic, which means the sound show will be quite sonorous too.
The interiors are where things get more happening. The front seats are racy red bucket units from Recaro while the rear seats are custom black leather bucket seats. The dashboard, steering and most of the other bits are covered in a carbon fibre finish, making one feel racy as soon as he enters the car. The gear stick is a stylish lever type unit with a shiny chrome finish. In the end, this Civic is a mod job done to perfection and sets the bar high for upcoming modified Civics across the country.
