On the other hand, there are muscle cars which will always be desirable, at least in our opinion. And the Ford Mustang is kind of the hill. Not in the sense that it’s the most powerful or interesting, but because it’s known all over the world. This build from India proves this by adapting the design of a 1969 ‘Stang to fit a 2009 Hyundai Accent. Its possible that the person who built it never even saw a real Mustang in real life.
The Accent is mostly forgotten in America, but it’s a popular commuter in India due to its frugal engine and size. Obviously, there are RWD Hyundai models which would have been better for the handling of the fake Mustang. But replicas are usually created by people with more skills and ambition than finances. You’ve got to respect that.
Obviously, there are elements of the car that don’t match the original very well, such as the nose. But that’s like saying somebody’s homemade burgers made from leftovers don’t taste exactly like McDonald’s. We particularly like the view from the back, where they replicated the taillights, bumper, and fastback design very well.
The interior is always the least accurate on any fake car, and that seems to be the case here as well. And while we don’t have many glimpses of what’s under the hood, there probably isn’t going to be a fire-breathing V8 under there. We’re willing to bet it’s something small, a four-cylinder 1.5-liter with under 100 hp.
