Tata Safari to Mahindra Thar: 10 UNUSUALLY modified cars from Big Daddy Customs

Car and bike modification has now become quite a big industry in India. There are many designer/customisation houses that can transform your car into a hot looking vehicle. One of them is Big Daddy Customs, located on MG Road, in Delhi. Some of the more famous works they have done include the Moon Rover, which is basically a conversion of a Safari to look like a Range Rover. Here are 10 cars that have been done by them.

This tastefully done Safari is among the most popular car from Big Daddy. The car here, called the Moonrover, has been modified to look like a Range Rover Evoque. It has been finished in black and white, and the contrast looks quite good. The Moonrover gets Evoque styled headlamps, grille and LED DRLs as well. The front fenders were also altered and now look more muscular, which adds up to the overall look of the car.

Next in line is another Safari named the Tusker. What makes it stand out really is the golden yellow paint job. Cupled with black accents, the SUV looks ready to take onto anything. The front end now gets a new grille and smoked out headlamp with LED units, along with a big ‘TUSKER, badging. The car runs on custom blacked out 16″ rims and the interiors have been done up in leather now.

If there is a vehicle type that grabs the most eyeballs in India, it has to be Limousines. This one here has been converted into a swanky limousine by Big Daddy customs. Based on the older generation Octavia, the car now has all the amenities and then some. It has grown in length by 2.1 meters resulting in much more seating room on the inside, with sideways facing seats. The car now has custom sky view glass on the roof, a bar, a wine rack which has been finished in white wood polish, LED lighting, multiple AC vents, a 26″ LCD screen with JBL Audio and a DVD player, a privacy partition between the driver and the passenger cabin and to round up, upholstery which has been finished in black.

Let us introduce you to Eleanor, better to say a copy of it. The Eleanor was a special customised built based on the Mustang, made famous by the movie ‘Gone in 60 Seconds’. This one, however, started its life as a Chevrolet Optra. It has been made completely new to look like the Eleanor and the car looks the part. The Eleanor was originally based on the 1967 model Mustang and the same look has been carried over here. The whole body has been fabricated as new and attention to detail is pretty good.

The Contessa can be said to be one of the most modified cars of the country. This is because of the fact that the car can be deemed to be the first and only muscle car of the country, though not exactly. This one here gets custom horizontal grille, hidden headlamps with an electric shutter, new fenders with airvents, new rear bumper , LED tail lamp cluster and a new trunk spoiler. The interiors have been finished in a combination of matte black and grey cotswool. Again, this car car looks ravishing and a head turner for sure.

The Octavia in its time was quite a sport and good looking car. This one here however has been completely reworked and is now a 2 door coupe instead. New grille, bumper, LED headlights, custom 17 inch wheels are some of the most evident changes made to the car. The whole body has been redone and the car now looks really sporty. The car has been done in a custom blue shade too. The interiors are now finished in charcoal leather with blue piping.

The Thar is one of the most popular lifestyle utility vehicles of the country. The factory made Thar comes with only a soft top. Big Daddy has come up with a custom made hardtop for the Thar, increasing practicality and looks at the same time. The metal fabricated hard top can be opened and sits on hydraulic struts, enhancing practicality. The car now gets custom tail lamp cluster and a reworked interior, which includes new seats at the back taken from the Ford Endeavour.

The Ritz was among the more good looking tall boy design cars to be sold in our country, though it had people divided over its looks. The one you see here has undergone a lot of changes which are quiet evident. It has gone sporty with radical golden rims, smoked headlamp cluster with LED DRLs integrated into the bumper, a new bonnet with air vents. The rear too has been altered with the inclusion of a new diffuser, reworked bumper and smoked out tail lamp cluster.

The Mitsubishi Lancer was an iconic car and still remains in many enthusiasts garages. It is also among the most modified car out there. The one you see here gets a unique custom grille, projector headlamps, 15″ matte gold alloys shod with wider tyres, and a new body kit. Other changes include wide side skirts, custom rear view mirrors, clear tail lamp cluster, a new boot lid along with a massive spoiler. Completing the whole package is a matte bronze-grey paint shade.

The Ford Fusion never made big in terms of sales, but was a different to approach to hatchbacks for sure. Big Daddy has given the Fusion a massive makeover and the result is here for you to see. It gets custom front bumper, a new grille and side skirts. The headlamps, as you see,  are now projector units and the tail lamps are smoked. The reworked bumper now houses custom DRLs and the car is now finished in a glossy black shade. The interiors now have a custom green shade to it. Completing the whole package are 15″ HRS deep dish rims, which take the whole appeal to a whole next level.
