This personalized creation that grafts a Lancer Evolution 9’s nose onto a 2005 Subaru WRX is probably heading to annoy a number of of the models’ hardcore followers. Having said that, the outcome is an automotive Frankenstein’s monster that seems to be definitely awesome.

“I required to make a motor vehicle with a diverse front finish that no one’s carried out prior to on this certain technology. Aka the most important rivalry. So I originally purchased the Evo front finish initially prior to the true Subaru motor vehicle alone,” the builder named Jonah goes by shoodbgood on social media explained to Motor1.com.


Shoodbgood does an spectacular work of staying an automotive plastic surgeon and making the Evo nine nose look like it’s supposed to be on the WRX.
