Hybrids aren't exactly known for being the sportiest vehicles on the road, but that doesn't mean their owners don't want to look as good as possible behind the wheel. As such, perhaps it shouldn't be too surprising that Japanese tuning companies are jumping on the gas-electric bandwagon almost as quickly as the automakers themselves.

Chief among those hybrid tuners is Tommy Kaira, which has released a slew of new bodykit bits, suspension upgrades and wheel options for both the 2010 Toyota Prius (which we saw teasers of previously) and Honda Insight. We'll leave it up to you to decide if the add-ons add up to an improvement in the wedge-shaped hybrid hatchbacks. In any case, click here to see the whole kit and caboodle for the Prius and here for the Insight.

*BUMP* so View New Content readers can see this.

I cannot WAIT for some of the comments on these.

As a wise friend told me once. If you slather mayonnaise on a poop sandwich, it is still going to taste like poop.

I wonder how many gallons of oil and water it took to manufacture those aftermarket wheels and the bodykit plastic.

Toyota should do a factory TRD edition of the Prius, and Honda a Type-G (G for green) version of the Insight.. :)
