[Photos] Vietnamese Transform Ordinary Cars Into 'Rolls-Royces'

In Vietnam, the land of product copycats, imitation iPhones and Louis Vuitton handbags are par for the course. But now, a new and impressive trend seems to be taking off – modding ordinary cars into "Rolls-Royces."

Lada 2017

Toyota Camry

This Toyota Camry owner transformed his 1988 model's exterior into a “Rolls-Royce” while maintaining the original interior.

 

Fiat Doblo

Popular in Vietnam between 2002 and 2004, the Fiat Doblo has since fallen out of favor with car buyers. This alteration is a bit less impressive than the others on this list, but A for effort, I guess?

 

Nissan Sentra

A group of young Vietnamese with the love for luxury cars transformed their 2002 Nissan Sentra E Sedan into a “Rolls Royce” in just two months.
