Renault Espace / Lexus LS400

Espace

When people think Renault Espace, they either think of it in it’s basic form as a vanilla people mover, or, if they’re anything like you and I, they think of the completely insane F1 version. But what if modifying one wasn’t left to the devices of a motorsports company, what if a car guy got his hands on one, what would they do with it? How about cutting out the floor and dropping it over a Lexus LS400, complete with 1UZ-FE V8 power? Not enough? what about a central driving position, just like the McLaren F1, and a bottle of nitrous in the boot for good measure. Sounds like I’m making it up, right? Not even my imagination could come up with something this left-of-field. Head below to see this awesome chassis swap build with your own eyes.

    Lexus UK is interested in running a short review of this build for its official blog. Please could the owner of this cool mash-up get in contact with me on joe.clifford@live.com so we can arrange this.

    A lowered Espace is something I have wanted to see for a long time. Someone finally did it.
    Awesome!
