Every auto enthusiast around the world wants to own a high-speed super sports car, but high import duties and constrained budgets restrict a person from making his dream come true. However, the passion of a true enthusiast makes him / her transform his / her daily car into a dream vehicle with a minimal budget.
Today we’ve come across a story where a Mechanical Engineering undergraduate has turned the Maruti Suzuki Eeco into a sporty, two-door sedan. This video has been posted to a YouTube channel called SM Rocks, and in the first half of the video, the vlogger talks to the maker of this car to get all the information.
As the designer and creator have argued, this two-door sports car is made at home and built by hand. The car is based on the Maruti Eeco, but it’s no longer a front-engine car. In the video, Kaushal, a student of Mechanical Engineering and the designer of the car, says he started building the car when he was in the 11th grade. The chassis of this car is custom built, and Kaushal ‘s journey has started.
As the designer and creator argued, this two-door sports car is made at home and built by hand. The car is based on the Maruti Eeco, but it’s no longer a front-engine vehicle. In the video, Kaushal, a Mechanical Engineering student and a car designer, says he started building the car when he was in 11th grade. The chassis of this car is custom built and Kaushal began the road test when he was in the 12th grade.
The design of the car is said to have been inspired by two cars – Lamborghini Veneno and Bugatti Veyron. This car took the creator two years to complete. Kaushal also says he wants to make India ‘s cheapest sports car in the future. The car has the engine placed in the back and the glass hood is sealed. The vehicle is not yet complete, and there’s room for the spoiler.
The creator admits that he has spent around Rs 10 – 12 lakh to date on this project. He also says that he used carbon fiber to make the body, but it didn’t turn out very well. At the moment, the car is getting a metal body. The car is called RBS after the grandfather of the creator.
Speaking of the design of the car, it gets naked projector lamps on the front, doors open like scissor doors, low profile tires wrapped around alloy wheels, and so on. All in all, it doesn’t look like finished work, and the developer knows it, but since it’s based on the Eeco, it’s full marks for the effort that has gone into this attempt.
Kaushal said he’s going to continue working on the car and will be launching a better version of it in the near future. It should be noted that such handmade cars are not lawful on public roads. All road vehicles must be accredited by ARAI for their roadworthiness.
