In Olden days Maruti 800 was the best car. When we talk about those days, this is the car which comes’s first in our mind. In 1983 the story of Maruti 800, that car was loved by almost everyone. What happens when we get to know that one guy has modified his beloved Maruti 800 into a sports convertible car?
Yes, it has happened. A man named Jagjit Singh has changed Maruti 800 into a beast.
After the sports car was ready Jagjit Singh was in the interview with Youth Ki Awaaz, there he said, “It took me nearly three years to make this and has cost me a bomb as it entailed certain types of dyes beside the opportunity cost. With such a hole in my pocket, I am looking for an external investor to fund this project and scale it up commercially.”
Two doors of this beast are from the Maruti 800 in this version, and the entire characters of the side profile of the car have been changed including stylish air vents and creases. The rear of the car looks like India’s own Mazda Miata regarding design. The car sits on a Maruti 800 platform, making it even more remarkable. The headlamps of the car are from Fiat Palio, and the tail lamps of the car are from Chevrolet Spark. Jagjit Singh also stated that every young kid wishes to own an expensive sports car but not all can afford one. Even second-hand sports cars can cost a bomb in ones pocket. Thus, they created this Maruti 800 convertible to offer a luxury car that is also affordable.
Then he talked about the problem in India to take the car on the road; he said, “If I had been abroad, I would have turned into a celebrity. But here in India, I am struggling to take this on the road.” Jagjit Singh bought this car for Rs. 35000 from a guy in Vasant Kunj then he worked on it, and the results are just unexpected.
