I really don't care much about DC's designs. Ofourse, I hadn't even seen his Noble M12 GTO. But, after seeing this topic heat up on our site, I decided to just take a peek.
Conclusion: I found out that I wasn't missing much.

Hey Dippy,

His Aston show car was not his design.....all he did was build it according to plans supplied by aston. Although he did make a few minor changes to the interior of the show car if im not mistaken.

cheers

Yeah I know Rehaan. The Aston design was supplied by Aston Martin themselves. in blue print form all he did was build it. Thats the area where I credit him cause he did a great job of making the car from the given designs. Maybe thats why they gifted him the Vantage

Damn why dont we get gifts?

Cheers

i feel the DC GO sucks. Looks more DC'ish than a Noble. my cousin seen the M12 on Andheri flyover. And he too feels that the original GTO looks better than the redesigned one.

Even though I am an absolute hater of DC creations, I have to admit this. Except for the three huge gaps (boxes?) in the front bumper, I actually like the latest from the DC stable.

I've seen better designs in my design book.

The head lights and bumper don't go with the car.

i wonder how it performs though.

The car must be performing well since it has the Ford V6 in it

Cheers

Do i see a little bit of Gallardo touch to it

The rear tail reminds me of a BMW.

I still think is sucks, though. Doesn't look well moulded.

Looks ok for India but, bad on the international front.

Change the front and rear lights to something more conservative. Throw in a decent front bumper. Its a looker!

In the last pic i couldn't help but notice "Koenigsegg" written behind the DC design. Lucky DC, he finally got his design among the big daddys.
