10 of the Worst Body Kits

We've seen some bad body kits in our days, but there seems to be one that's worse and worse every day. We either receive one in our inbox or someone pings it to us, but somehow we manage to find the most outrageous and off the wall body kits that we have ever seen.

Some of these body kits have got to be the most dramatic and quite frankly, some of the worse ones we've seen. We thought we'd share them with you and get your thoughts. So what do you think? Are these pretty bad, or what?

Above: This body kit was made from cardboard boxes and a bunch of duct tape. I've never seen anything like this in person, but this Nissan Sentra looks like it's now ready to do battle with some of the world's best.

Above: Got a Mazda Miata but really want a Porsche Boxster? This guy molded a front end and side skirts from a Boxster on to his Miata, and to us it just looks a bit odd.

Above: Not sure what kind of car this even started off as. As I know is if this car was behind me, I'd get out of the way. Looks like something out of Mad Max.

Above: If lightweight isn't your style, you can always build a body kit out of wood. Good way to lose traction on a front wheel drive car, by putting all of the weight in the back. Looks like this body kit not only has form but also function.

Above: When it comes to making sense, sometimes it simply doesn't have to. It's a pure rocket from the right, and a standard Honda CRX from the left. Looks cancerous.

Above: The swiss army knife of vans. There must be extra reinforcement to hold up that bumper. I don't think you can take a big enough angle going up a driveway to not scrape.

Above: This Corvette comes to us straight from Kuwait. Bad taste in body kits is global.

Above: Looks like this body kit is designed to have some wide rear wheels. Should work out great on a front wheel drive car.

Above: This can't be legal? Apparently he doesn't drive his van under any overpasses or park in the garage. Aerodynamics never stood a chance.

Above: You know a body kit is pretty extreme when you can't even recognize what it started off as.

And there you have it! 10 of the craziest body kits we have ever seen. There might be more out there, but I doubt they are any worse than this. Either way, we appreciate their passion for their cars, and it wouldn't be a fun hobby if everyone liked the same thing!

Toyota Camry Body Kit – Nascar Style!

Many people know that Toyota and Nascar have a long relationship. Toyota has been in a large number of Nascar races, and for 2012, Nascar driver Kyle Busch is entering a 2012 Toyota Camry into Toyota's Racing Dream Build Challenge. Kyle Busch put a special body kit on this car that looks like nothing we have ever seen for a Toyota Camry, and the Nascar inspired build is sure to turn heads!

Kyle Busch used his official colors of black, red and white to give the car attitude that matches it's stance. The Camry isn't only modified on the outside, the car also features red and black seats from the Lexus IS-F amongst other interior modifications, as well as a Lexus IS-F dual exhaust.

To finish off the Camry's body kit, there is a front air splitter and a rear diffuser, and the whole package looks great!

A custom hood with dual scoops gives the front of the Camry a menacing stance. We also love the black race wheels with polished lip and think the whole package comes together nicely, and looks much better than the standard Toyota Camry SE body kit that comes with the car stock.

Wald Porsche Panamera Body Kit

Wald International is a Japanese tuner that has gotten it's hands on the Porsche Panamera. Wald is mainly known for creating stunning body kits and aerodynamics that really give the car the stance it should have had from the factory. The Wald Porsche Panamera is no different, and Wald is showing off it's new body kit that includes some of the best lines we've seen!

The Wald Porsche Panamera Body Kit includes a front bumper with integrated LED lights, side skirts, wide body wheel arches and fender vents. It looks like Wald also lowered the Panamera to give it a very mean and demanding stance.

The Porsche Panamera looks like a mix between a sedan and a station wagon. It's also got a love it or hate it look, but Wald is bringing in more love and less hate with their new body kit.
