Isuzu is currently the world's biggest manufacturer of diesel engines. The 1.9-litre Ddi Blue Power engine is one of the most reliable engines today and their line-up only consists of pick-up trucks and, occasionally an SUV. But there was a time when Isuzu made cars.

Someone in Japan modified a Toyota Alphard to look like a Rolls Royce!

When we say “modified”, thoughts like changing the front bumper or adding a rear spoiler would come to mind. And then, occasionally, you will come across modifications that transform a car to look like something else like this Toyota Alphard with a Rolls Royce face.
