As shown in one of the previous videos that we have also shared here on Cartoq, the owner was seen painting the dashboard of the car. Now this dashboard has been installed in the car as noted in the new video. Along with it, we can note that the instrument gauge cluster has also been installed.

Unlike normal cars, the speedometer, tachometer, and other gauges are in the middle. We can also note the air conditioning vents with black surrounds have also been installed. The controls for the air conditioner are in the middle of the middle AC vents.

We can also note that the owner was working on the wiring in the center console. Most likely, he was fixing the air conditioning system of the car. Apart from this, it can be seen that all the carpets and even the headliner have also been installed.

Additionally, both seats have also been fitted in the car. The entire interior has a theme of silver, blue, and black. The seatbacks seem to have not been replaced; however, they might be repainted in the upcoming videos. We can also note that the steering wheel is also not from the original car.

History of this car

As we have mentioned in the past, this car was abandoned after the shoot of the movie. What happened was that this particular car was put up for auction. However, due to an astronomical ask of Rs 2 crore by DC, it was passed up by the collector.

Collectors knew that it was just a modified Toyota MR2. Hence, no collector wanted to pay such a huge price. The price was then later reduced to Rs 35 lakhs. However, still no buyers showed up for this car. It was then abandoned, and it ended on the side of Mumbai streets.
