A damaged Suzuki SX4 has found a new cyberpunk-inspired life.

The car was involved in a crash that totally destroyed its front section.

Most would have scrapped it for parts and bought a new car.

But this owner grabbed some sheet metal and LEDs and gave it a Mad Max makeover.

Cars that would survive a global disaster are having a moment right now.

Shaq has been spotted rolling around in a fully customized armored Ram 1500 TRX.

And Apocalypse Manufacturing is working on a new 6×6 vehicle called Warlord 2.0.

Elon Musk designed the Cybertruck to be ‘apocalypse-proof’, with doors thick enough to stop a bullet.

There’s even a ‘rust’ wrap made specially for the Cybertruck that makes it look like it’s been on the frontlines of the apocalypse.

So when one man’s Suzuki SX4 was involved in a collision, he turned to these beasts of the road for inspiration.

After completing his Mad Max-esque DIY, he’s now looking to sell his car on Facebook Marketplace.

The car was hit front-on, destroying the bumper, headlights, bonnet and fenders.

The owner reconstructed the front section using welded sheet metal with a raised diamond feature on the bonnet.

Visible bolts, flat surfacing and strips of LED lights give this battle car a cyberpunk edge.

It’s also been given an off-road bumper with a winch and tow loops.

Lastly, the owner replaced the wheels with Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain beadlocks.

“It’s a fun car that gets lots of attention,” the owner said.

The only downside is that the airbags that were deployed in the initial crash have yet to be replaced.

Other than that, the car still runs well and has all its original mechanics.

Anyone who wants to get a headstart on the apocalypse can buy it for just $6,500.
