Somewhere in Saitama, Japan a custom body shop is making a Pixar’s Cars inspired “smile bumper” for the Suzuki Twin.

This car bumper adds the face of a Cars character to make the Suzuki Twin look extra cartoonish and lovable. Take a look at some of the photos owners have posted.

It appears that the bumpers occasionally make their way to online auction sites as well. The bumper costs about 64,800円, or $550-$600. This seems to be a pretty justifiable car modification, if you ask me.

It’s too bad that that these are only available for the Suzuki Twin, a car that both hasn’t been in production for over a decade and never made its way to the United States.
