We are very intrigued by the creativity on display to convert this Maruti 800 into a Jimny. The Maruti 800 has been an iconic product in our country for decades. Sure, it doesn’t sell in its original form anymore. But there are still a lot of people who have it close to their hearts. On the other hand, Jimny is the latest addition to Maruti’s India portfolio. It has been a legendary name in the international automobile industry for over 5 decades now. In this post, we come across a unique modification. This Maruti 800 owner spent around Rs 2 lakh to transform his car into the Jimny. Here are the details.

Maruti 800 Converted into Jimny
This post comes from lalit0saini on Instagram. The visuals capture an unbelievable sight. A man is trying to bring what looks like a peculiar Jimny out of a narrow space. Looking closely, one gets to witness that this is a customized vehicle. From the front, one can’t make out which car it is. But the rear taillamps give away the true identity of the donor model. It is a Maruti 800. At the front, there are new round headlamps, a rugged bumper with fog lamps, a clamshell bonnet, a rectangular grille with vertical slats, an open top and a rugged skid plate area.

Moving down the sides, one gets to experience the real flavour of the Jimny. The doors have been removed and there are auxiliary lamps on the iron bar mounted from the rear compartment. The rear section is also completely altered with the removal of the roof. It has been converted into a sideways seating arrangement. Apart from that, the wheels and tyres are also new. The spare tyre is mounted on the boot lid, and the bumper has been modified but the iconic taillamps remain with a grille covering. All in all, this is quite a fascinating conversion.

What We Think
We understand that many people want to make their cars unique, but it’s important to know that most changes to cars are not allowed in India. So, we really suggest that you don’t make big changes to your car. If you’re thinking about adding something special, it’s a good idea to talk to your local Regional Transport Office (RTO) first. If they say it’s okay, you can officially put the changes on your car’s registration papers. This way, you’ll follow the rules and won’t have problems with the police later on.
