We are quite sure this is the only one of its kind in India. A Toyota Prius Hybrid with 18inch wheels and 235/45 R18 tyres is not the first thing we would track down to get a feature, but when we heard there was one doing rounds, we asked the owners to kindly send us some pics. Plus, it makes for a good addition to our Unusual suspects issue.
This rare hybrid is a family motor belonging to Hashim and Hisham – the racing twins- whose Etios Liva turbo is featured in the same issue. They had these rims lying around which was used on their Corolla Altis earlier, so one day, they decided to put it on the Prius, in place of the thin low rolling resistance tyres. Other than that, the car is stock at the moment. But once they have some free time in their hands, the twins say they have bigger plans with this one. So what could be next? An auxillary battery pack for an extra bit of electric boost, perhaps?
