Japanese tuning firm, Tommy Kaira, has released a modified Toyota Prius that actually looks like it would be fun to drive. Unfortunately, it appears that the modifications are mostly visual, so if you were dreaming of a faster gas sipper, dream on.

The pimped-out Prius certainly looks meaner, with a front lip spoiler, larger rims and tires, and lower ride height. (Does anyone else have déjà vu?) Tommy Kaira's website also shows a "high performance exhaust system" for the Prius, but you'll need a Japanese translator to get much more information. The description of the product uses the words "sporty" and "eco" in close proximity, which is usually a good thing.

Prices for the full conversion are not yet available, but if you've been searching for a hybrid that will make the average Prius owner cringe, stay tuned.
