Italian looks coupled with Japanese reliability.
The humble Honda Civic means many things to many people. For most, it represents affordable motoring at its best, while for enthusiasts, the Type-R signifies the pinnacle in front-wheel-drive performance driving, but there is one thing that we can all agree on: a Honda Civic is not a Lamborghini Aventador. The guys over at Executive Mod Trendz (EMT), based in Mumbai, India, clearly didn't get the memo. The company has painstakingly converted a run-of-the-mill Honda Civic into something that closely resembles a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, complete with a custom interior and that iconic front-end and we're not even mad.
In the above video, we can see this exotic machine prowling the streets of Mumbai, and nearly causing accidents as people twist their necks to take in its elegance and sheer beauty. This creation is based on a 2009 Honda Civic. It is not clear why the builders decided to go with such a short, FWD car, but they clearly made it work. On the exterior side of things, this car is actually pretty convincing if you've had around twelve beers, and the fact that the doors still open like a Civic's would doesn't even cross the mind. EMT managed to neatly execute the front-end and headlight assembly, which is half the battle won, but at the back things don't look as great. The good news is that no one ever sees the rear end of a Honda Civic, especially when there's no V12 under the hood.
This Honda Aventador is a two-seater and sports a massively impressive interior that any Bollywood star would happily occupy for the right amount of money. Inside the cabin, you'll find some very orange-looking upholstery, two bucket seats with embroidered bull headrests, and some convincing touches such as Aventador lookalike door grab handles and fake carbon fiber trim. Unfortunately, this creation is not allowed on the roads of India as some structural changes have been made. According to the builders, this creation cost around $15,000, including the cost of the car. Who needs a real Lambo anyway?
