Car upgrade has become rampant in Nigeria and many have started going the extra mile to upgrade the exteriors of their old model vehicles to meet the standards of recent models.

While car upgrades used to be minor facelifts given to older model cars to make them look modern at the very least, Nigerian car owners are now entirely reconfiguring their old model vehicles to appear brand new.

This video shared online by @CarContinentshows the moment an old model Land Cruiser upgraded to a 2022 model was spotted driving through the streets of Lagos.
