Dhaval has documented the journey of modifying the Honda Civic into a Lamborghini inspired by the Terzo Millennio electric concept on his YouTube channel. The modified car closely resembles the concept right down to the wheel arches, twin doors, long windscreen and more. The signature tri-LED DRLs, which are now part of the new-age Lamborghini cars, have been replicated as well.

Dhaval revealed that the custom-built car required a lot of other parts as well as an intensive fabrication process. The chassis had to be cut and redesigned on the Civic to match the new design and cost over 1 lakh to execute. Dhaval says he spent another 3 lakh on labour charges alone. Furthermore, most of the parts have been custom fabricated while the glass parts have been replaced with acrylic sheets with a black film. The windows of the modified car cannot be opened.

Dhaval’s modified Lamborghini also features the ‘63’ sticker on the doors, which signifies Lamborghin’s birth year ‘1963.’ Completing the project are the five-spoke aftermarket alloys on the project car. He has also added the Lamborghini Raging Bull logo on the bonnet and wheels. The cabin also gets changes including sports seats, new upholstery, a flat-bottom sporty steering wheel, and a widescreen infotainment system. The key fob is also custom-built and gets a small screen similar to the new BMW models.

The content creator has not revealed if there is a change to the engine of the project car. The stock 2008 Honda Civic was powered by a 1.8-litre i-VTEC naturally-aspirated petrol engine. It was offered with either a 6-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic.

The project has been appreciated by enthusiasts on the internet.
