Check out this Maruti Alto K10, which gets itself a set of scissor doors, which seems to be inspired from a Lamborghini Aventador.
Maruti Alto is the smallest offering from India’s biggest carmaker. Until recently it was offered in two avatars – Alto 800 and Alto K10. However, the latter is now discontinued. It was a great option for first-time car buyers. It offered the affordability and compactness of the lesser Alto 800 but packed in a higher punch with its bigger 1000cc motor. The K10 wore conservative clothes to keep the costs in check. It never attracted buyers because of its looks. But, here’s a modified Alto K10, which surely has all the visual drama it ever required to grab the eyeballs of almost everyone on the road.
The door mechanism on this Alto K10 has been changed with hinges that operate in upward direction.
To start with, the biggest on on this car is the Lambo-style scissor doors, which open upwards. Apart from the doors, the car also gets a set of aftermarket deep-dish rims, which are shod with wider tyres. The front bumper now features an aggressive splitter and canards on the sides. Also, an LED bar is added in the lower grille of the car. However, this isn’t the only LED bar, as there are two more, which perform the function of a flasher. The headlamps have been smoked out to further emphasise the aggression of its face. There’s not much that has been changed on the inside but it gets a lot more gauges mounted on its A-pillar.
Talking of the mechanicals, we are not aware of if anything’s souped-up under its hood. However, in the stock avatar, Alto K10 was offered with a 3-pot petrol motor. The 1000cc naturally aspirated motor belted out a peak power output of 68 PS and a max. torque of 90 Nm. Maruti offered it with 2 transmission options – 5-speed MT and 5-speed AMT. It returned an ARAI-claimed fuel efficiency figure of 24.07 kmpl. Although a CNG-powered version was also available for those who wanted more bang for their buck in terms of fuel efficiency. It returned an ARAI-rated figure of 32.26 km/kg.
