The Ford EcoSport might not be among the better looking SUVs out there. But there's nothing a diligent modification job cannot fix. Here we bring you, the 'Black Panther'.

The EcoSport, since its inception, has been one of the best-selling cars for Ford in India. It operates in the hotly contested and highly crowded segment amidst the likes of offerings such as the Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza and others. While looks are subjective, it would not be difficult to deny that the EcoSport slacks when it comes to design and looks. Which is why a lot of owners across the country have modified their car to up the visual quotient. In the same case, we came across this rather attractive car that has to be one of the best ones out there.

The car now carries a host of modifications in its new avatar. Starting with the chrome elements in the car that have been ditched for an all-black treatment that makes the car looks much more aggressive. This modified EcoSport is called ‘Black Panther’ because of its overall black theme.

The stock grille on the car has been replaced with a Raptor style grille with LED lights. It gets a Ford lettering on the grille, which has also been blacked out. Down, the bumper still has its silver-finished skid plate and a red coloured dummy tow hook. At the sides, the most notable change would be the Plati 8 J 16 inch concave wheels. It also uses Bosch ceramic brake pads. The all black alloy wheels and red painted calipers go well with the overall aggressive look of the SUV. Other than the wheels, it gets a blindspot mirror and Thule ProRide Replica Mounts on the roof.

Nothing much has been done to the interior of the SUV. Just like the exterior it also follows an all-black theme. The work on this project had started during the lockdown earlier this year and the overall cost of modification was around Rs 1.70 lakh.
