Sportier vehicles like the Tesla Model S have had no problem attracting the work of bodykit tuners for souped up versions. Finally, though, a company has stepped up to bring some bling-y looks to the Toyota Prius. Japan-based Wald International – bless 'em – has a bodykit that has lowered (I mean, really lowered) the world's best-selling hybrid, enlarged the wheels and, in general, has made the model quite a bit funkier.

Using material from plastics maker ABS, Wald International has added amenities such as a front "half-spoiler" and big-'ol alloy rims. Side steps, rear spoilers and skirts, and headlight covers are also part of the package that doesn't necessarily make the model any faster (the drivetrain wasn't touched) but at least things are more aerodynamic and sportier. We'll have to wait for someone to add three-wheeled motion, but for anyone who's dreamt of a low-rider Prius (there are a lot of us out there), this is more than a few steps in the right direction. Take a look at more details here.

Earlier this year, we touched on Wald International's aftermarket work on a bodykit for the Mercedes AMG GT. That so-called Black Bison bodykit had previously been used on high-end luxury models such as the Bentley Continental Flying Spur. Wald International was founded in 1990 as a wholesale unit for Mercedes Benz and European Tuning Parts. The company gets extra karma points for taking its art to the Toyota Alphard luxury minivan model in Japan.

You can read our First Drive impressions of the 2016 Prius here. Sadly, it wasn't lowered.
