Dacia 1300 Low Rider and Pro Street Renderings

Back in the good old days, when the Western World was pointing its nukes at the nukes the Eastern World was pointing at it, somewhere in Europe a new brand was born: Dacia. Established in 1966, the Romanian brand was created, if you like, as the trash bin of former Renault models, which were sold by the French to the Romanians to be used as the basis for the Romanian national car.

Known in the West as the Renault 12, one vehicle would become the emblem of the Romanian automotive industry in the years that followed as the Dacia 1300. The car was pretty much the only car being offered on the local market and it has seen several versions of the basic model up until 2004, when it was discontinued.

None of those models were however as wacky as the ones Romanian designer Daniel Bucatariu has to offer. Using a little bit of talent and a lot of computer programs, the designer presents us with two versions of the original 1300, called Low Rider and Pro Street.

You can all figure it out on your own what the renderings are supposed to be: a good old Dacia 1300 body wearing a hell of a lot of American implants, including the oversized air intake and the suspension system.

Of course, there's no way on this Earth such models will ever see a single unit produced. Currently, the 1300s still in existence in Romania are being traded as part of a scrappage scheme in place in the country. And they are worth far less than such a conversion would cost.
