Personified Car Sculptures

Hetain Patel Turned an Old Ford Fiesta into a Real Transformer Car

— October 30, 2013 — Autos
This transformer car by Hetain Patel seems like something that has come right out of the Transformer series and into real life.

Patel's father converts cars into hearses for a living and provided help in creating the 'Fiesta Transformer,' a robot-car hybrid that takes on a new form that appears to be a squatting human. Every part of the Fiesta Transformer is made up of the car's parts -- the doors become the new arms and internal engine pieces function as joints for the creature.

It is amazing to see how the whole interior and exterior of the vehicle can be made to look like a Transformer that seems like it is believable enough to come to life.
