The Best Cars To Modify

Ever since Henry Ford’s Model Ts started rolling out of his Detroit factory in their thousands, people have been excited about making their mass-produced car faster, bigger and better. Whether car modifiers are interested in looks, add-ons or performance, the ultimate goal is the same: to stand out from the crowd.

The best cars to tweak and upgrade are the ones that look great, will yield serious results and come with plenty of support and spare parts. So without further ado, here are the pick of the bunch.

Nissan 370Z

Thirsty and with an appalling boot for a car of its size, practicality was quickly thrown out the window by Nissan engineers dedicated to building one of the most beautiful, heart-racing homages to pure driving ever devised. Owners of the 370Z or its predecessor the 350Z will know how fun these are to drive, but lightening it with some carbon fibre will raise the experience to 11.

BMW 3 Series

The multitude of professional BMW tuners and the fact that BMW has its own officially modified range – the BMW M – hints at the potential in these comfortable, powerful driving machines. With such a huge market, the options for engine, chassis, wheel, interior and body kit modifications are huge. A new exhaust, racing wheels and tyres are a good place to start.

Mini Cooper

BMW’s rereleased Minis are great cars in their own right, and there’s plenty of scope for tweaking them. But for real modifying pleasure, go for the original Mini Cooper, one of the most inconic-looking cars of all time. The exhaust and wheels are a popular place to start for owners looking to boost performance, while those more interested in creating something beautiful can go wild updating its classic interiors. Cars like this can be worth a fortune so make sure you get special modified car insurance once your work is done.

Mazda MX-5

One of the world’s best, most affordable two seaters, the Mazda MX-5 is like a reliable old-school Alpha. That means it’s great with no tweaks or mods, but also that the potential is there to create an unbeatable driving experience. The light-weight chassis is what gives the car its speed and agility. If you’re doing a restore, make sure you look at coil springs and brakes. This car has been a huge success in the UK, Japan and the United States, so parts and support are easy to come by.

Subaru Impreza WRX

The poster-boy for modified cars the world over, the Subaru Impreza WRX is the car of choice for people who couldn’t give a monkey’s about looks – at least classic ones – and just want to drive fast and embarrass Porsche drivers at traffic lights. This started life as a rally car, so handling, acceleration and feel are all brilliant to start with, though the suspension on newer models needs stiffening. Coming with 265 horsepower as standard, the modified versions can hit 400 and above. Look at getting a ROM tune to squeeze the performance out of this beast.
