Take a look at this skillfully customised Honda Civic that now replicates the look of a Lamborghini Aventador.
Lamborghini Aventador is one splendid-looking supercar. Its wedge-shaped silhouette and mid-mounted engine are the things to fall for. But thanks to its exorbitantly high price tag of Rs. 5.01 Crore, not everyone can afford to drive one home. Thus, people are often seen modifying their cars to make them like a Lamborghini. Since it isn’t an easy job to make a 4-door car look like a low-slung Lamborghini Aventador, most modifications jobs have an end result which is nearly trash, but not all. Here’s a YouTube video from the channel of AMERHADI007, where a modified Honda Civic can be seen be donning the looks of a Lamborghini Aventador, rather gracefully.
Talking of the modifications, they are extensive. The tuner has changed the complete appeal of the Honda Civic. In case you are wondering, this is the 1st-gen Civic that made its way to the Indian market back in 2006. Interestingly, it featured a wedge-shaped silhouette that makes it an easy donor car to work with. The tuner has done a lot of sheet metal job to make the Civic look like an Aventador.
It features redesigned bonnet, fenders, bumpers, doors, and tailgate. The headlamps and tail lamps are also inspired by those seen on the Aventador, and so is the case with the multi-tip exhaust muffler. However, under the hood, it still has the 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol motor that displaces 1800 cubic centimetres to put out 130 horses and 172 Nm.
Last year, Honda launched the new-gen Civic in the Indian market, but the carmaker has recently announced its decision of pulling the plug on its production. The Civic was offered with two engine options – 1.8L N/A petrol and 1.6L turbo diesel. While the petrol motor pushed out a peak power output of 140 PS and 174 Nm, the oil burner produced rated power and torque outputs of 120 PS and 300 Nm, respectively. The petrol trims of the Civic were offered with a CVT only. The oil burner, on the other hand, was available solely with a 6-speed MT. The absence of a manual gearbox in the petrol trims is often said to be the reason that enthusiasts maintained a distance from the new-gen Civic.
