Guwahati: There are many people around the world who love luxury sports cars. While some can afford them, there are many who keep dreaming about them.
However, a man named Nurul Haque made these dreams into a reality with the age-old Indian ‘jugaad’ method. Wondering how is that possible? Well, this is how it happened.
Hailing from Karimganj in Assam, the mechanic transformed an old Maruti Swift into a rather exquisite Lamborghini Sports Car. He did it all in his garage called ‘N Maruti Car Care’ which is situated in the Bhanga area of the city.
What makes this all the more impressive is that he did so with very limited resources. Speaking to India Today, the 30-year-old revealed that he spent ₹6.8 lakhs to make it all happen. “It was my dream to make and drive such a luxury car. I love Lamborghini cars and finally, I have modified an old Maruti Swift into my dream car,” he said.
The car is yellow in color and looks exactly like the iconic vehicle.
Haque started his pet project right when the COVID-19 lockdown was in full force. He was sitting idle when this idea popped into his head. With the help of YouTube videos, he replicated the car of his dreams within just eight months.
Pictures and videos of his creation went viral on the internet, making him a local celebrity in his area. Scores of people visited the garage to witness it with their own eyes. They took selfies as well.
On social media, many even praised his creativity.
What is his next project? Haque told the news organization that he wants to create a Ferrari replica now.
