Most of you would not have heard of them, but DAMD – a Japanese body kit manufacturer – has been around since the 1980s with their most prominent work featured on the gold Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution driven by Paul Walker in 2 Fast 2 Furious.

While they’ve even got body kits to convert a GT 86/BRZ to look like the Lexus LFA, this is by far their most audacious work – mimicking the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen and Land Rover Defender, through the new Suzuki Jimny.

With the “Defender”, noticeable changes include a new headlamp design, new front grille, new front and rear bumpers and even a “bulkier” front bonnet.

As for the “G-Wagen”, it’s almost impossible to tell the car apart from the real deal but upon closer look you’d see why – the attention to detail is second to none. Like the “Defender” it also gets a new headlamps housing, grille design similar to the GLA 45, E63 S and the newly updated C43 AMG 4MATIC.

There isn’t any priced indication on the body kit yet but it’s said to be available from 2019 onwards.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
