Chrome-Blinged Toyota C-HR Is Worthy Of A Fast And Furious Cameo

The C-HR is an aggressively styled crossover, but it appears that one Michigan resident didn’t think Toyota’s designers went far enough.

As a result, they created this monstrosity which was recently spotted by a Redditor.  It’s hard to know where to begin, but we’ll start from the fake front fender vents and work out way back.

While the C-HR is pretty much devoid of chrome trim, this owner thought the more, the merrier. As you can see, they added chrome window trim and chrome door handles with chrome surrounds. Since that’s clearly not enough, the crossover was also equipped with an aftermarket fuel door that features even more chrome. The bling doesn’t end there as owner also installed chrome on the liftgate and factory rear spoiler.

As everyone knows, chrome alone adds 150 hp, so the owner did the next logical thing – install a wing. It’s massive and undoubtedly compromises rear visibility, but it adds at least 300 horses.

Besides all that extra power, the wing has a lesser known benefit of keeping the rear wheels glued to the road. This effectively compensates for the C-HR’s lack of all-wheel drive and it’s a truly brilliant idea.

Since it would be silly to stop there, the owner also installed extended side skirts and an aftermarket rear fascia insert with integrated exhaust tips.

The end result is certainly unique, but it’s kind of a shame as the crossover wouldn’t look so bad if lost a bit of chrome trim.

    Not any less grotesque than the original design.

    glad I don’t work or live near the owner of that thing, they must be a mess, or very unpleasant to be around.

    From the rear, I honestly thought it was a lifted Civic Type R.

  • thejohnnycanuck

    I just want to know where he or she got those chrome bits. They’re obviously not one-offs.

    And yes, the thought that there could be more of these is quite disturbing.

    Toyota made an agressive looking/sportive lookind car, and then they turn around and offer it only with powerless engine options.. for this weight of car, you would think a 160hp and 180hp option would be reasonable thing to offer or ask for.. but not Toyota. Why is a 8.5-9s from 0-60mph/0-100kmh to much to ask? Competitor’s offer 1.6-2.0 version wit turbo or without… Its just sad.. that the most obvious demographic is left out.. especially when for almost the same price as the CHR Hybrid, you get a sub 8s electric car.. so you wonder why this intentional limit… Cos its one thing to also offer low fuel consumption options, and another to only offer them….

    I respect the dedication.

    This would totally obliterate that Juke GT-R with just the spoiler add-on alone. Now I expect it to run with that classless Chiron Super Sport.

    Somebody’s been hanging out in the aftermarket shops too much.
