Toyota Fortuner is one of the best selling premium SUV in the country for many years. Recently the Japanese automaker revamped the SUV to take on the new generation Ford Endeavour.
But here is a old generation Fortuner which has been stretched to its limits. Yes, we can't call it an SUV because it's a limousine. Although, some of the design elements helps us to identify it as a Fortuner.
The modified limousine is created by renowned DC Design. Built in Guwahati, it took three months to modify the SUV into a limousine. The modification alone cost around Rs 40 lakh and including the cost of purchasing a standard Fortuner makes it a whopping Rs 70 lakh.
The front section of the vehicle features a slightly revamped signature headlamps with projector lights while the original hood scoop has been retained to go with the inclining bonnet lines. It also sports hexagonal grille mesh, aggressive bumper and F1 badge replacing the Toyota badging.
The major highlight of the vehicle is the side profile. The wheelbase has been stretched to resemble the limousine like looks, but the C-pillar of the vehicle is identical to the B-pillar of the stock Fortuner SUV. The roof mounted spoiler is retained and because of the extension the roof rails are absent.
The rear of the limousine gets redesigned tail lamps and single exhaust pipes on either side. DC Design has extensively worked on the interior of the vehicle as it is the case with the customised vehicles.
The middle of the vehicle has been modified to look like a executive cabin to appeal to its limousine tagline. But the seating capacity is limited to only four members. Although, the interior is customised to be feature rich.
The interior sports multi-way adjustable seats, a television screen and other elements along with wooden finish to enhance its premium look. It is expected to be powered by the same 2.5-litre or 3-litre common rail turbo diesel engine employed in the older-gen Fortuner.
