They have access to a lot of information and spare parts. As a result, they end up creating exciting and compelling projects. This latest conversion is yet another example of what they are capable of achieving. Lexus is the luxury brand of Toyota. Its vehicles are some of the most revered in many parts of the world.

What We Think
This modification is quite impressive. You could see the depths into which the car modification house went. While such creations are great to demonstrate your creativity, they are not road-legal in India. Indian motor laws are strict about such things. Hence, we wouldn’t recommend our readers to go for such extreme modifications. If you take such a car out of the road, you are bound to get in trouble with the traffic police. Alternatively, we suggest going for mild modifications only. However, if this is your passion project, then you must ensure that you don’t use it for city commutes all that often.
