Your honest opinion bro's... what do you think of dc's go?. It has a lot of similarities to the Gallardo and a few other supercars. Should he have tried something more unique???. The concept is pretty similar to the lambo's.

Anyone notice the striking resmlance of DC's design to that of the Audi Le Mans concept which was launched before?


On another note, while DC products look fine straight outa the showroom (or workshop!), but just see then a few months later, and they look a mess! No jokes! Keep a lookout nexttime and you'll see what I'm talkin about.

it does look very similar to the Audi Le Mans...
it may be possible that DC made such a design keeping in mind the performance [like aerodynamics, etc]

Rtech,

You sure beat me to it. I saw the Audi this morning on the top right of the Business Times and for a minute it looked like DC got featured. Its only on closer look that I realised its an almost mirror image of the DC Noble.

You know who gets my vote for the originality of this concept

'Go' seems to be a little hesitant to get up and go. It looks ponderous and wallowy, not doing any justice to the excellent chassis and engine its covering.Front looks sharp but its in sides and the rear that DC has lost the plot. Looks like it has been bumped by a BEST bus while it was taken on a spin.
Like the fit and finish on the car thou. Always topnotch like how DC's prototypes are.
