Hetain Patel bought the vehicle, which has the same specifications as his first car, to create an original sculpture.

Designer Hetain Patel‘s first sculpture is a converted 1988 Ford Fiesta that looks like a robot from the Transformers franchise. The vehicle is the same model he was given by his father when he turned 17.

The car has been transformed into a large-scale squatting human-like figure, created by Patel along with his father and his engineer brother and fellow Transformers enthusiast, Pritum Patel.

Unlike the popular toys and films, however, the car here is not a high-powered sports car or truck transformed into a powerful warrior, but rather a small inexpensive Ford Fiesta transformed into a human-like figure calmly squatting. This posture is a recurring image in my work and forges a link between the lower classes in India and my immigrant family in the U.K, both of whom sit comfortably this way.

The Fiesta Transformer is part of the exhibition SPHERES 6 at Galleria Continua in France, where it will be on display until December 22nd. You can check out a time-lapse video of the build process below:
