Modellista wide body kit on Prius:





Actually, except for the blingin' wheels, I think it looks quite nice. Far nicer than a stock Prius.

Wow, I... really like that rear. It reminds me of the FIA GT Viper's rear.

If I had a Prius I'd have this, but like Mitlov said, with unobtrusive wheels. Looks a hundred times better than the original, and is most likely more aerodynamic than what Toyota laughingly claims.

I see no reason to believe why this would be more aerodynamic than the standard Prius.

I'll bet that the suppository-shaped stock Prius is more aerodynamic, but I suspect that the wheel arches, front spoiler, and rear wing take off maybe 1 mpg. Well worth it IMO for the improved looks. Especially when you remember that all Prius drivers except Al Gore's son tend to go 5 mph under the speed limit.

Maybe that was the wrong idea... more downforce, maybe? No? Oh well. sad.gif

And I agree -1 MPG is worth the improvement in looks.

Sure it looks pretty nifty, especially the rear end...but what a complete waste of money. This is just about the last car to sink multiple $ks into in appearance modifications.

Go 40 MPH in the fast lane, what they were meant to do.
