This Toyota Raize by Alpine Style is Worth Looking At

Automotive face swapping can be an exciting activity, particularly for Japanese aftermarket specialists. We’ve seen numerous face swaps on different vehicles over the years, but this one is probably the best of the best.

The vehicle, named Havana, is based on the Toyota Raize and has been styled by Alpine Style to look like it belongs in the 1980s. They took inspiration from the styling of 80s American cars. The front end is heavily inspired by the Chevrolet K5 Blazer and is largely composed of chrome-plated components.

At the rear, along with a wood panel that spans the width of the tailgate, the rear taillight housing has also been altered to accommodate rectangular units. The silver wheel covers on the Alpine Style Havana are wrapped in white-lettered Toyo Open Country tires to finish the vintage appearance. The vehicle also seems to have a lower ground clearance compared to the regular Raize.

With the exception of a new steering wheel emblem, new seat upholstery, and an improved audio system, the Raize and the Havana are nearly identical from the inside. In Japan, the Alpine Style Havana costs around JPY 3.98 million (around PKR 73.91 lac), the cost includes the Raize donor car and the Havana conversion kit itself.
