AM chose DC cos the work can be done at a much cheaper price in India than anywhere in the world.

Correct, also remember that DC did not have a hand in designing the Aston. The blue prints were given to DC with confirmed designs, all he had to do was fabricate it.

The Fulgura designs are cool, but like V12 mentioned it worked out cheap for Aston . DC just had to make a production model or put it in a better way a show car. Thats the same reason for which the Noble was also given to DC for a makeover .

the aston may be on sale in India with a much lesser cost....
its because the model that DC made was 40%-60% cheaper than what it should've been [cost of production I mean]

Qualis is one of those Fabulous Cars which is extremely ugly!
Now back to the Original Topic, DC Go, though looks Gallaroish but is by no means bad. Infact is brilliant.

Hey,

This car is VERY good looking IMO.....

The DC Go looks good in that side pic.....but the front headlights and "holes" arent really to my liking.

Any pics of salil's qualis? salil?

Aadix is right, i think we should try not to say anything if we cannot say anything good. Sure, constructive criticism and a discussion of it is acceptable.
But please, no more opinionated defacing of DC, Korea, Bangle, Hyundai, EVO'd cars on bombay streets etc etc just for the sake of it. It is offensive to some members (maybe even on a personal level) and will do us more harm than good in the long run.

Good things at Team-BHP,
cya
Rehaan.

Oh God......those Fulgara's designs make DC look like a rookie, which he is......atleast on the international front.

u mean the yellow qualis??? the ISA??



I mean this cannot be called a Qualis at all. He has changed everything. He has given it a completely new body. Only the chasis and the engine is a Qualis. The same way as u dont cal;l the DC Infidel a Toyota MR2.

This DC Qualis can be called a Qualis.

The previous add-ons of DC were very good, specially the paint work...
Except for the 'ARYA', 'GO' and 'INFIDEL' I don't like any car that he's modified.
