This Hyundai Elantra Is Part Ironman And Part Fast And Furious

Every country and culture has its own car tuning scene and in Nicaragua, it appears as if mods inspired by the first Fast and Furious film are still very much in fashion.

One Redditor recently made a trip to the small country in Central America and stumbled upon this; a third-generation Hyundai Elantra with an Ironman-inspired paint scheme and a bodykit which Brian O’Connor would have approved of roughly 15 years ago.

The hideous modifications begin at the front where the owner has ditched the standard front bumper in favor of one with various intakes, unsightly bulges, and LED daytime running lights. The bumper has then been ‘complimented’ by aftermarket headlights and a hood with no less than two fake air scoops.

As is necessary of any tuner car looking to emulate this style, the overhauled front end has been paired with new wheels, side skirts, a different rear bumper, and a large rear wing. Combine all of these odd new parts with a gold and red theme which Ironman would be proud of and you have one of the strangest-looking Elantras on Earth.

While we’re not exactly huge fans of the modifications performed, things could be worse. For example, the owner could have fitted a pair of chrome spinner wheels or badges from a more desirable car.
