Such a retro modification is more interesting than a new car! Alpine Style releases two retro models
Today, retro has always been a popular element. There are quite a few conversion factories that do retro modifications based on modern models. Manufacturers such as Mitsuoka have released many new products in recent years. Buddy based on old American cars gives a good effect. . But this time main character is not Mitsuoka, but a new work by Alpine Style, also from Japan.
The first model is called Carica. The name of this car is derived from "California Dreaming Car" and design is really rich in West Coast style. After seeing this, I think everyone guessed that his prototype car belongs to Toyota Hiace. The front design also reproduces classic Hiace designs from 1980s and 1990s. The design of four square lights also shares some design elements with Volkswagen models. chromed bumper is a common configuration for american cars.
If you don't like this bright color scheme, we also offer a relatively dark matching style that is officially defined as European style. Some panels on front fascia have been changed to black and shape of bumper has also been changed. different.Wheel design.
However, there is nothing new in rear of car, mainly adding some logos and changing some small details. The rear of car will also be modified accordingly to match different versions.
There are not many changes to interior, most of which are focused on improving entertainment system, including a larger central control screen, ALPINE audio system, etc., and can be equipped with a lathe that can lie down.
The other is Havana. The name has a strong Cuban vibe to it. The front end of Havana has undergone a new design including a new chrome grille. Internal structure with a cross as main body. full of American SUVs.
The headlights are also replaced with square ones, and turn signals are installed outside. The bumper also has a silver retro look, but it's odd that it doesn't use a shiny chrome finish.
All of these changes aim to make it completely different from RAV4, especially stunning tail treatment, use of new components to replace RAV4's original taillight design, change to original body shape. At same time, it echoes retro design of front of car.
There are no changes to interior other than use of more retro brown seats, rest of original car's design is retained and sound system has also been upgraded.
These two cars are relatively original retro cars, and exterior design is more serious. Judging by finished products of these models, it's easy to understand how retro cars are played today. After all, to own a classic model, even in places like abroad where car environment is relatively good, it takes a lot of money and hard work, and you also have to endure shortcomings of your era. And these vintage cars based on new models do not have this problem. Even if you buy products from certified manufacturers, you can also enjoy original factory warranty, which is much better than buying an old car and rebuilding it from scratch.
