There is no lack of tuning houses in our country currently. Everything, from a simple headlight change to ECU remaps and full body conversions, can be done as per the customers needs. One of the foremost tuning house, which caters to all these needs is Bangalore-based Motormind Automotive Designs. The outfit also builds body kits for cars. Meanwhile, here are 10 smashing modified cars from Motormind. From wraps and body kits to lift jobs, we have them all covered. Take a look and get ready to be bewitched.
Tata Safari Storme
The Safari Storme is among the popular SUVs of India. You might have seen many modified versions of it but this one here is something different. Starting with the colour scheme, this Tata Safari Storme receives a vinyl wrap in yellow and black, enough to make it really stand out.
The stock tyres are replaced with thicker and fatter ones while the alloy wheels, with a matte black finish, add a classy touch. The SUV also wears a body kit designed in-house at Motormind which includes reworked bumpers and a grille among others.
The little Japanese hatchback isn’t much famous in the custom modification circuit. But if done properly, anything can be turned into a piece of art. The same has been justified by Motormind for the Micra. This one here wears a Motormind styling kit.
From the boot and the front bumper, the rear bumper and hatchlid spoiler to the custom red colour and alloy wheels, a lot has gone into this Micra to make it look the way it does. And how can we forget those little vents on the bonnet which increase the appeal of the car.
Maruti Gypsy Shudder Edition
As the name suggests, this one is ready to give shudders to the worst of terrains. The Shudder Edition from Motormind gives the iconic Gypsy some tasteful tweaks.The matte orange paint job looks swell and does a great job contrasting against the black bits on this vehicle.
Big mud terrain tyres on blacked-out alloy wheels lend it a throw-me-at-it persona. The wide fenders along with a grey front skid plate add to the rugged looks. Completing the package are DRLs around the headlamps and on the roof.
Hyundai i20 Elite
This regular i20 Elite has been converted into a looker by Motorminds. It seems apt for those who want edges rather than curves. A body kit makes the front look quite sharp while the changes are carried over to the flanks, which now sport side skirts.
A split diffuser asserts its position on the rear bumper while a hatch lid spoiler rounds off the sporty design’s intent. Other interesting bits include projector headlamps with angel rings and an LED daytime running strip placed on the front bumper. The rims have been blacked out and the front grille gets the honeycomb treatment.
Porsche 911 Rust Wrap
What, rust wrap, expensive sportscar, not done man. But trust us, such stuff may not be common here but it is a popular wrap job abroad. This Porsche 911 Cabrio with a rust wrap by Motormind is totally one-of-its-kind in India, especially where older cars are looked down upon. This rust wrap does exactly that, giving the Porsche a vintage, almost worn down look. And yes, the Martini race livery is oh-so-Porsche. However, the car is as fresh as mint inside out.
The already butch Endeavour now gets even meaner with this body kit. The SUV has not been transformed heavily but rather gets some subtle changes that make it stand out, but in a classy way. For starters, you have a Motormind body kit which includes a new front bumper chin with LEDs.
Other changes to the front include a new Ford Raptor-inspired grille with built in LEDs along with smoked-out headlamps. The flanks get new wheel arches, larger tyres and alloy rims. At the rear, the bumper gets an extension. The overall package looks very sober and classy.
With so many of these rugged machines running on our roads, its quite difficult to make people take a second look at your XUV. But this one here will get more than its share of stares. The car gets a new front bumper, grille, roof box, new headlamps, new rear bumper with diffuser and a wide body kit. The most prominent eye grabber though is the black chrome wrap that takes things to a different level altogether. Thee roof box not only looks cool but massively aids to practicality too.
Indians and their love for gold is known to the whole world. After all, we even have a auspicious time (Akshaya Tritiya) to get the glittering metal home. This Honda Accord with a gold wrap from Motormind is something that will grab attention wherever it goes.
A bit on the louder side we agree, but for those who really like the colour and want attention, this is the perfect solution for their mobility needs. And those oh-so-sexy 15 spoke rims with low profile tyres really are the icing on the cake.
Seems like Motormind has something for everyone. If gold is too loud for your taste, the custom modification company also offers a silver wrap to make your vehicle shine. This chrome wrapped Chevrolet Cruze is Motormind’s take on keeping things slightly subtler, but only just. With the Cruze’s prodigious acceleration, this wrap is all it needs to go past like a silver streak. Plus, it comes with a mirror too.
Before reading this, you may need to google KTM X-Bow. Back, let’s start. The Hyperion-1 is really a hyper styled car that shows Motorminds’s technological prowess. Showcased at the Auto Expo 2016, this designed-and-built-in-India car is slated to go into serial production sometime next year.
This sharp looker features a V6 petrol engine that drives the rear wheels. Can’t wait to get your hands on it? Welcome to the waitlist. And yeah, we sent you to do some googling because this is India’s answer to the Austrian KTM X-Bow.
