Man in northeastern India modifies car into a Lamborghini as gift for chief minister
A man in northeastern India’s Assam modified a Maruti car into a lookalike for presenting it as a gift to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
Named Nurul Haque, the car mechanic who came up with this concept and executed it to perfection hails from Anipur in Karimganj district. He reportedly gifted it to Sarma on December 3.
Visuals showed Haque at work in his garage as he cut metal pieces which he would later put on the car. He was also seen welding portions inside the vehicle. He was eventually able to transform the Maruti car and give it a Lamborghini makeover, after four months of hard work. Haque also revealed that he spent Rs 10, 20,000 ($12,621.94) to make this happen. He was then seen at Guwahati where he went to gift the vehicle to the Chief Minister.
The car looked like a white-coloured Lamborghini, which had wing doors and was without a top. The vehicle had three silencers with its back similar to that of the Lamborghini. He had decorated the car with ribbons in order to gift it to the Assam Chief Minister.
With an 18-year experience of working in a garage, Haque said that he always wanted to drive a sports car. Assam XM Sarma was happy at receiving this gift and wished Haque all the best in his future endeavours.
The 31-year-old reportedly now plans to modify another car into that a Ferrari but says that he needs the government’s support in doing so.
