A young motorist has been left "impressed" after winning a competition to pimp up his used Honda Civic, the Torquay Herald Express has reported.
Matthew McLaurin won the Mod My Motor competition, meaning that mechanics were given £5,500 to transform his vehicle.
The idea of the competition was that a typical run-down car was given a new lease of life, with the 23-year-old collecting tokens to beat off stiff competition to win the prize.
He told the publication: "I’m really impressed with the results. It’s been a long wait but it looks spectacular.
"It was ready for the scrap-heap. I can’t really believe it’s the same car."
Some of the work carried out included the fitting of a new music sound system, engine-tuning, a new spray-paint, alloy wheels, a new exhaust and tinted windows.
Top Gear has concluded in a review of the Honda Civic that the vehicle is "cool" with a "fantastically intuitive" cabin.
