Check out this brilliant-looking body kit for the Suzuki Jimny Sierra, built by Aimgain, a Japanese aftermarket car parts design firm
Automotive enthusiasts all over the world love the Suzuki Jimny for its brilliant off-road capability. The little SUV is also quite inexpensive, which helped boost its global popularity even more. We’ve also seen plenty of modified examples on the internet, featuring beefy body kits and/or imitation mod jobs. Here, we see another customised Jimny, wearing Aimgain ‘MT.8’ body kit.
Aimgain is a Japanese brand that manufactures aftermarket car parts for various international cars. The company has created the ‘MT.8’ body kit for the Suzuki Jimny, which dramatically transforms the look of the car from a tame SUV to a menacing off-road machine. All the parts are available separately, thus allowing the customer to modify their vehicle to their own liking.
The MT.8 Jimny Sierra body kit consists of a custom bonnet, a new front bumper (with integrated fog lamps and skid plate), a stinger bar, a custom number plate holder, a new front grille (with optional LED auxiliary lights), a pair of HID projector headlights (with angle-eye DRLs), side protection bars, a new rear bumper (with integrated taillights), and a roof rack (with four integrated LED light bars).
For the interior, buyers can go for custom floor mats (made of EVA Resin) and seat covers (made of PVC). There’s also a touch-operated control box on offer, which looks sweet with its blue backlighting. In terms of overall looks, the MT.8-kitted Suzuki Jimny looks absolutely stunning, ready to pounce on any terrain that comes its way.
As mentioned earlier, all the different parts of the MT.8 Jimny Sierra body kit are available separately. Most of these parts are made to order, and thus are quite exclusive as well! A complete price breakdown is given in the table below.

The ‘MT.8’ body kit does not offer any performance upgrades for the Suzuki Jimny, which is quite sad, as the little SUV could definitely do with some extra oomph. The international-spec Jimny (Jimny Sierra in Japan) is powered by a 1.5-litre, which generates 102 hp and 130 Nm of peak power and torque respectively.
Transmission choices include a 5-speed manual and a 4-speed torque converter automatic. There is a Kei-car version as well, exclusive to the Japanese market, which is offered with the same body but a smaller, 660cc turbo-petrol engine, generating a measly 64 hp and 94 Nm.
