Land Cruiser or Isuzu MU-X?
The exteriors of this Land Cruiser will not let you which car it actually is if you don’t pay enough attention. The front end is massive and grand with a large chrome grille that is bought as the original model, the headlamp set up is also original Land Cruiser, the front bumper has been custom made by hand using fibre along with the large bonnet. The fog lamps are LED projector units with additional LED lighting on the side of the bumper and on the splitter beneath the bumper. The side profile is quite unique because the entire body design has been copied from the original Land Cruiser. This includes a characteristic line running from the front all the way to the third quarter, the massive and prominent wheels arches have been carved in the body itself, the alloy wheels are humungous 22-inchers.
The side also features an added quarter glass inspired by the original SUV with added roof rails. The door handles are kept as it is from the MU-X. The rear section of the modified SUV is still unfinished, as confirmed by the designer. However, it is not easy to spot what is missing. The rear section has the taillamps of the Land Cruiser, there is a chrome slab connecting them with Land Cruiser engraved on it, the bumper below the boot lid has a chrome garnish to enhance the appeal.
