The experience of owning or driving a Lamborghini is a dream of numerous motoring enthusiasts and even those who are not much into cars. The feel of the roaring ‘bulls’ with V10s and V12s at their back and the extremely low slung and sharp styling make the Lamborghinis rank high in desirability. While a few lucky ones can fulfil their dream of owning a Lamborghini once in their life, some just can’t due to their stratospheric price tags. However, someone from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, has managed to partially achieve this dream with a replica car of a Lamborghini Aventador.
In a video shared by a YouTube channel named ‘Magneto 11’, we can see that someone from Indore has got his good-old Honda Civic transformed into a look-alike Lamborghini Aventador. The car is aptly called ‘Silver Shark’ by the owner, as the shark-like aggressive-looking car is finished in a colour scheme of silver. The result is easily one of the finest transformation jobs we have seen in recent times.

The entire transformation work has been carried out by the team of an Indore-based local workshop owner named Firoz Khan. For the transformation, the entire bodywork of the white-coloured Honda Civic has been swapped for custom-made body panels all around, all of which look exactly like that of a Lamborghini Aventador. Every single panel of the car, including the bonnet, the upward-opening door panels, door-mounted rearview mirrors, side-window panels, quarter glasses, rear profile, headlamps and tail lamps are custom made on the lines of the original panels of the Aventador.
Gets massive 19-inch wheels
There are new 19-inch alloy wheels, bigger tyres, boot-mounted wing spoiler and red-coloured wheel spacers. The front bumper comes with LED fog lamps and LED turn indicators integrated into the front bumper inlets. Like in the original Aventador roadster, the roof can be retracted down to give it an open-top motoring experience. At the back, there are centrally-placed quad exhaust ports, which produce almost the same kind of deep exhaust note which a Lamborghini is known for. Unlike in a Lamborghini, the engine is mounted at the front and there is a decently sized 400-litres of boot compartment beneath the upward-opening rear panel made of fibre.
The entire dashboard is retained from the original Civic and has been painted in black, to give the complete interior an all-black theme. The other significant changes on the inside of the car are the inclusion of new sport seats at the front, an ambient lighting strip on the dashboard, a large touchscreen infotainment system complete with Android Auto and Apple Carplay and new rear seats, which are smaller than those of the original Civic and are good enough to accommodate two adults. The interior door trims and transmission tunnel have been custom made too, with the latter accommodating the power window and outside rearview mirror adjustment switches within it behind the gear lever.
There are no expected changes to the front-mounted 1.8-litre engine from the original Honda Civic, which has been paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. While this entire modification job looks commendable, such vehicles become illegal to use on public roads as per motor vehicle laws related to modifications carried out on a vehicle.
