Riced Opel Corsa B

That tuning fever from the early-2000s, heavily influenced by the first movie of the Fast and Furious franchise, still has some influence nowadays. Though most of the ricer hype was much gone about 2010, walking on the streets we still see random subcompacts with fancy bodykits such as this Opel Corsa B 2-door hatchback spotted in my hometown.
Though the rear spoiler and the wing-mirrors do have some functionality and lead to some real-world aerodynamic benefit, other mods seem to actually induce some undesirable parasitic drag at higher speeds.

  1. Ricers seem to have a sweet spot for that little econobox. When I was stationed in Germany I took some days off in England, and saw a handful of these also riced out.
