Only a few days ago, the pictures of limousine version of the WagonR became viral on the Internet. The old-generation WagonR, which was stretched to fit additional two doors and extra seats were from Pakistan and new details shared by the owner reveals the cost of the modification job too. The owner of the WagonR is Mohammed Irfan Usman, who owns a car workshop in Pakistan. The WagonR is his project.
The owner, who previously worked with automobiles started his own workshop in 1977. He later moved to Saudi Araba and continued working in the automobile sector for 35 years. The owner Irfan says that he had the idea about converting the WagonR into a limousine for a few years. However, due to the work pressure, he just could not find any time to execute the project in Saudi Arabia. He started working on the same when he came back to Pakistan.

Irfan did his research well and wanted the vehicle to be one of its kind. For that, he used Google to look for any such modifications that might have been done in the past. After looking around and getting assured that there is no such other project done in his country or anywhere around in the world, he started working on it.
The WagonR he used for the project is an imported one. He got it imported in 2018 but it is a 2015 model. The idea behind the modification is quite simple and easy on the paper. He explains that he used the front and the rear section of the original car. To extend the length of the vehicle, he chopped the car from the middle and added the extra section there. He bought used products and imported them to Pakistan. The used parts include the doors in the middle, roof, pillars and the seats.
The cost of the modification job is about INR 2.27 lakh or about PKR 5 lakh. He spent about three on the vehicle and spent a lot of time on the body of the car to make sure that the finishing touches make the car look like a job done in the factory. The video shows that the job is really well done and it looks neat.
14.5 feet long WagonR
The owner added an extra 3 feet 7 inches to the length of the WagonR. The final length of the vehicle is about 14.5 feet and it has six doors. The limousine is designed to carry a total of 6 people but there are seven seats according to the video. It can handle a total weight of 500 kg. Apart from the additional middle section, the owner has not made any changes to the vehicle. Everything is in stock condition. Even the engine, which is a 660cc three-cylinder petrol engine is stock. It gets an automatic transmission.
The owner is using the vehicle for the last six months and we do not think that there are any strict laws about modifications in Pakistan. The owner clearly says that he has never faced any performance issues with the vehicle and it works well. He even says that he drove the vehicle at about 120 km/h. The only thing that he has to be extra careful about the vehicle is its size, especially while reversing into a small parking space.
