India's Big Daddy Customs has made a Moon Rover. What's that? It's a Tata Safari SUV (pictured at right) made to look like a Range Rover Evoque, but only really from the front, at a low angle, ideally in low light and assuming you'd never seen a real Evoque or the donor vehicle before. To get an idea of dimensions, the Evoque is a couple inches wider than a Safari, but the Safari is nearly a foot longer and more than a foot taller.

Having said that, given what Big Daddy started with, it's not entirely dreadful. The Evoque's signatures have been reasonably approximated, and the "custom white paint job" is part of the package. Nothing's been changed inside, but according to the company's Facebook page. "Apart from glass house area, everything else has been modified in the body shell."

So it's good to know that at least they take their work seriously. We think.

      You do realise the irony of all this, don't you, Tata being owners of Land Rover?

      That's nothing like an Evoke. Crack Pipe.

      Not really a lot like the Evoque, but it does look better than the donor vehicle. Some kits actually make the donor worse (any Tesstorosa attempt on a fiero).

      Well... at least you aren't driving around in something that looks like a Tata Safari. That's gotta be an improvement!

      It actually looks really good, and if I can get a car that LOOKS like an expensive car with a reasonable price, then I have no complaints. Although I do know that this is only just one mod for them to show off their skills

      Just a little while ago, people were laughing at Korean attempts to make cars. Now Hyundai and Kia are absolutely killing it. China is close behind, and improving at breakneck speed. India will follow too. When people are living in dirt, it's easy to think they're less than us, and poke fun. When the game is made fair, and chances are equal, the kids on here poking fun, will be getting the $$$$ beat out of them. Everyone knows subconsciously, that our way of life depends on inequality.

        I guess the Land Rover Evoque IS technically Indian though - so this is really an India copy of an Indian Car. Besides, it is OK to laugh at this sort of thing without being mean - this project would not have been done by anyone who didn't have their tongue firmly in their cheek anyway.
