Nissan 350Z Thinks it's Related to the Audi R8 and Lamborghini Reventon

It’s not one of the most beautiful designs in the automotive world, but the Nissan 350Z (made from 2002 through 2008 in coupe guise) is arguably one of the better looking and perhaps more importantly, distinctly styled sports cars of our times, which kind of makes you wonder why anyone would proceed with the changes you see in the example pictured above.

The 350Z was cosmetically modified with a Lamborghini Reventon-style front bumper (this seems to be popular conversion lately) and Audi R8-emulating side blades. While there are no other photos, GT Spirit mentioned that according to the tipster/photographer, the 350Z also had…TRD (as in Toyota Racing Development) stickers on the rear.

The “Public Bank” sign seen in the background and type of license plates on the adjacent cars lead us to believe that the 350Z was nabbed somewhere in Malaysia (if we’re wrong, tell on us in the comments).
