The Dacia Duster catches a lot of ire from the the Top Gear boys, but the work of 23 students could (but probably won't) put an end to that. The students are part of Dacia's Engineering Projects Auto Program, and have gone about creating a stretched Dacia Duster.

The team started by cutting the Romanian crossover and adding 59 inches of sheet metal. The result is an Eastern European ute that stretches over 19 feet long!

The Duster is painted in a matte black finish, and the exterior design is capped off with some sort of aluminum side thingy. In the midst of all this customization, the stock wheels were sensibly kept intact.

The cabin has been fitted a television, four captains chairs and an Android tablet. Other interior touches include expansive sunroofs, track lighting and generous heaps of leather.

Check out the fruits of the students' labor in the gallery and check out the video of the stretch-Duster below.

      "It isn't done well, but the surprising thing is that it is done at all." With apologies to Dr Johnson and his comment on women preachers. Oh, and I love Dacias by the way :-)

        Not sure I see your point. They left out a "with", which is a pretty typical Autoblog error. Other than that it reads just fine.

      The added window on the side doesn't match the rest, and that thing with the Dacia logo hanging on each side - what's the point of that? Fail.
