Even though India is one of the largest car markets in the world, the roads are filled with regular, mass segment cars when compared to exotic vehicles. Many Indian enthusiasts who love exotic and high-end vehicles cannot buy these vehicles because of the extremely high price tags on these vehicles. Well, driving an exotic vehicle remains a dream for many but they realize it by putting the logo of high-end manufacturers on their regular vehicles. Here are five such vehicles that are truly wannabe and have logos of other vehicles on them.
Mahindra Scorpio – Mercedes-Benz
Mahindra Scorpio is one of the best-selling vehicles in the market and has remained so for a long time now. Mahindra, one of the biggest Indian manufacturer offers a long list of models in the market. Here is a Scorpio, which has the Mercedes-Benz grille in the front.
There are no other changes done to the vehicle except for the grille but the grille swap obviously shows the owners love for the German brand. It seems that the grille has been fabricated to fit the Scorpio. Other than the grille, everything in the vehicle remains in the stock condition.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza – Lexus
Here is a Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the largest selling Utility Vehicle in the Indian market with a swapped Lexus grille. The Japanese luxury brand, Lexus has some extremely eye-catchy designs, especially their front grilles. This Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza owner swapped the original grille with a fabricated Lexus inspired one. The bumper has been modified to fit the grille and overall, it looks quite fancy too. However, since the size of the Vitara Brezza is much smaller than any Lexus SUV, the grille looks a bit loud on it. Everything else except for the bumper remains the same in the vehicle.
Maruti Suzuki 800 – Ford Mustang
Maruti Suzuki 800, the most popular car in the Indian market for a long time was forcefully discontinued after the introduction of the Alto. There are still many examples of Maruti Suzuki 800 in India that are maintained really well. There are also quite a large number of Maruti Suzuki 800 in the market that have been modified into different looking vehicles. Well, here is a similar Maruti Suzuki 800 that has been modified to look like a Ford Mustang and it gets an open roof too. It sure is a great way to enjoy the open roof and get the “feeling” of a Mustang.
Chevrolet Cruze – Audi
Chevrolet Cruze, which now has been discontinued from the Indian market has been one of the most popular sedans in the Indian market. Here is a Cruze that has lost its identity completely. The sedan here gets an Audi look complete with the grille and the logo. This one took three days to transform.
Maruti Suzuki Baleno – Volvo
Now Volvo is a brand that is gaining a lot of popularity in India in recent years. Here is a Maruti Suzuki Baleno that gets Volvo inspired front grille. This is in fact, the new 2019 Baleno that gets the Volvo look. The video also explains the process.
