2013 Toyota Auris Char Aznable (Gundam Style)

The new 2013 Toyota Auris was selected for a cosmetic tune dedicated to the anime cartoon, with the Japanese automaker’s in-house tuning arm Modellista taking responsibility for the transformation.

Modellista chose Char Aznable, a fictional character from the Gundam franchise, as its inspiration for the re-styling of the new compact hatchback.

After fitting the car with an aero package consisting of a deep front apron with LED daytime lights, hood vents, rocker panels, a roof spoiler and a new rear bumper with a diffuser and quad tailpipes, Modellista then applied a foil wrap in red for the body and in carbon fiber for the roof.

The Auris Char Aznable rides on a set of black 18-inch alloy wheels and also features changes inside, including red accents on the dashboard, steering wheel hub and gear shifter.

The only mechanical upgrades made to the car are the sports exhaust system and a lower and stiffer suspension.
