Old Honda Civic transformed into Lamborghini Aventador Roadster [Video]
The experience of owning or driving a Lamborghini is the dream of many car enthusiasts and even those who are not very keen on cars. The roaring ‘bulls’ feel with V10s and V12s on the back and the extremely low, pointed styling rank Lamborghinis high in desirability. While a lucky few may realize their once-in-a-lifetime dream of owning a Lamborghini, some simply cannot due to their stratospheric price tag. However, someone from Indore, Madhya Pradesh, managed to partially make this dream come true with a car replica of a Lamborghini Aventador.
In a video shared by a YouTube channel named ‘Magneto 11‘, we can see that someone from Indore turned their good old Honda Civic into a Lamborghini Aventador lookalike. The car is aptly called “Silver Shark” by the owner, as the aggressive shark-like looking car is finished in a silver color scheme. The result is easily one of the finest transformation jobs we’ve seen in recent times.
All of the transformation work was carried out by the team of a local Indore-based workshop owner named Firoz Khan. For the transformation, the entire body of the white Honda Civic has been replaced with bespoke body panels all around, all of which look exactly like a Lamborghini Aventador. Every panel of the car including the hood, upward opening door panels, door mounted mirrors, side windows, quarter windows, rear profile, headlights and taillights are manufactured made to measure on the lines of the original Aventador panels.
Gets massive 19 inch wheels
There are new 19-inch alloy rims, bigger tires, a trunk-mounted wing spoiler, and red-colored wheel spacers. The front bumper is fitted with LED fog lights and LED turn signals integrated into the front bumper inlets. As in the original Aventador roadster, the roof can be retracted to give it an open-top driving experience. At the rear, there are quadruple exhaust ports placed in the center, which produce almost the same kind of deep exhaust note that a Lamborghini is known for. Unlike a Lamborghini, the engine is mounted in the front and there is a decent-sized 400-liter trunk under the fiber-top opening rear panel.
The entire dashboard is retained from the original Civic and has been painted black, to give the entire interior an all-black theme. Other important changes to the interior of the car are the inclusion of new sports seats in the front, an ambient lighting strip on the dashboard, a large touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple. Carplay and new rear seats, which are smaller than the original Civic’s and are good enough to accommodate two adults. The interior door trims and transmission tunnel were also custom-made, the latter accommodating the power window and exterior mirror adjustment switches behind the gear lever.
No changes are expected on the original Honda Civic’s front-mounted 1.8-liter engine, which was mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. While all of this modification work seems commendable, these vehicles are becoming illegal to use on public roads in accordance with motor vehicle laws related to modifications made to a vehicle.
