So, this car sports a body kit. This means it has a different front bumper than the stock car. It has a trapezoidal cut-out for the grille, which is divided into three sections. Below it is cut-outs for the air dam (center) and air intakes (on either side).
Below the headlamps. on either extreme end of the front bumper, sit LED DRLs in a vertical position. With all the changes made to the front bumper, the stock headlights have been retained. Moving to the side, the use of the body kit has led to a protrusion of the car’s wheel arches. The car’s pillars have been blacked out and the mirrors have blacked-out housing. The alloy wheels carry a different multi-spoke design than stock wheels. Then there is the skirt below the doors as a part of the body kit which has a cut-out where it meets the rear wheel’s arch on either side.
At the rear, the taillamps get blacked-out outlining. The rear bumper has a faux slit on either side. There are two exhaust tail pipes in the bumper, one on either side. Between the two tail pipes sits the faux diffuser.
