The Indian car market is still largely unexplored in this country, but it is definitely worth thinking outside the box and marveling at the sometimes crazy creations from India on the Internet. It's hard to believe, but due to strict regulations regarding cubic capacity and tax breaks for cars under four meters in length, which as petrol only have a maximum cubic capacity of 1,2 liters, a new type of vehicle similar to the Japanese kei cars has developed on the subcontinent. The Sub-4 class. Whether small sedans with notchbacks, SUV models or hatchbacks and even minivans, everything at maximum 3,999 meters Length is realizable, is also produced. No manufacturer spoils it, and so there is a huge selection of vehicles from all well-known suppliers that are represented in the vehicle class. Now we're going to provide you with one Honda Brio a little more precisely, which has very special modifications and is based in India.
Small Honda with a lot of power.
Many readers will never have heard of a Honda Brio, but the wagon is definitely interesting for performance enhancements, as it is just one 910 kg empty weight brings on the scales. The owner of the Brio, who works at KS Motorsport in Mumbai, India, thought so too Engine swap, so one Engine change carried out. Tax relief or not, the 1,2-liter four-cylinder petrol engine with its just 90 hp was far too weak to turn the small one into a pocket-sized rocket. So the owner decided to get one 1,5 liter i-VTEC to have transplanted into the brio, which after a few modifications is scarce 140 PS and 165 Newtonmeter maximum torque.
The modifications include an Simota cold air intake system, a Race Dynamics ECU modification and an Pedal tuning from TTS Car. Even one Downpipe exhaust system is in the Honda. According to the owner, the 9 second mark be cracked when sprinting from 0 to 100 km / h. That is a considerable figure for a small car in the Ford Ka format, which is just 3,61 m long, and that can annoy much larger and more expensive cars.
Various external modifications were made.
The changes to the exterior include, next to one Bilstein B14 coilover kitthat provides more depth, including forged ones 14-inch alloy wheels from SSW, on which Falken Sincera tires in the format 185/60 R14. The forged rims are in a dark gray tone, which goes well with the shiny black foiling On behalf of Satin Pearl Nero harmonizes. Also a typical one JDM exhaust, in this case with two tailpipes, named Borla Spitfire, which was also installed by KS Motorsport, should not be missing. It remains to be seen whether the exhaust known as the Spitfire can really spit flames. As an eye catcher at night were still Bi-xenon headlights from Morimoto installed, which replace the standard halogen headlights.
A lot of work was done in the interior.
But that's not all, because the interior has also been greatly upgraded, and it lasted, for example Leatherette seats In nappa design, entry into the little ones. A provides a decent sound and fat bass Infinity subwoofer, which is installed in the spare wheel well to save space. As a result, comfort has been significantly upgraded, and not much is left of the former low-budget car.
