Check out this modified Tata Nano, which gets two sunroofs and a full-body wrap job that can confuse even the sharpest eyes. Isn't it interesting?
The Tata Nano was envisioned to be the Indian auto industry's Ford Model T, making four-wheeled transport accessible for virtually everyone in India. Dubbed as the "Rs 1 lakh car", and though upon its launch in 2009 it didn’t manage to hit that mark, its price of Rs 1.47 lakh comfortably made it the most affordable vehicle in India. Sadly though, the Nano felt built to a cost and its egg-shaped styling didn’t attract the Indian consumer as it was thought, and most people ended up buying the Maruti Alto instead. Now discontinued, the Nano will be an important part of the Indian automotive history for the engineering marvel it was, though with corners cut one too many. Today, we came across this Used Tata Nano which has received a full-body wrap.
The pictures of this modified Tata Nano have been uploaded by toyatotech and vandi_pranthanmar__ on Instagram. The first thing you’ll notice that it looks to have rusted into oblivion after facing the natural elements for a long time. But this is actually a full-body wrap job, and it very convincingly looks like the real metal of this Nano have rusted. The rust is of varying shades, with darker colours in some parts to imitate corrosion while there are drip marks all over as well. The other big change is that this nano gets not one, but two sunroofs fitted to it. There’s one each for the front and rear seats, and while you can argue that a panoramic sunroof would have been better, it doesn’t look like it would be possible to fabricate it without making significant changes. The rest of this Nano stays largely stock, but the wrap job is enough for it to turn heads wherever it goes.
The Tata Nano was offered with a petrol engine only, while a CNG fuelled version of the petrol was available as well. The petrol was a 624 cc twin-cylinder engine, which made 38 PS and 51 Nm of max power and torque respectively. The CNG conversion made similar power figures as well. Also, it was initially launched as a 4-door car, and the boot lid could only open when it received an update in the year 2015. The Nano was on sale with just a handful of features, namely AC, power windows, power steering, music system, centre locking and more.
