An Indian company called Executive Modcar Trendz is offering packages which turn the humble Toyota Corolla into a Ferrari 430 lookalike. Although the idea is a bit of a disgrace to Ferrari, this example does appear to be a pretty good mock up.
The body is created through a repeated design process which starts off with a basic sketch which is transformed into a digital platform. This is then redrawn to suit the car and eventually turned into a clay model using a CNC milling machine for final panel proportion adjustments. Real panels are then moulded to suit.
The interior of the car is also completely redesigned and is created using a similar process to the exterior design: sketch, digital layout and then a clay model is produced.
Overall, the finished product does look like a bit of a toy but the shape does resemble the famous Italian marque quite well. It’s a lot cheaper than your average Ferrari 430, too. Pricing for the package is said to be around around $22,400.
The only problem is trying to convince your mates that the buzzing 1.8-litre Corolla engine is actually a 4.3-litre V8.
