Hi guys,
Check out the DC-redesigned Pajero. The Circa 2020.
What I feel is that the car looks more like a concept car. Lools good from the front quarter.

Is this a short chassis Pajero or the regular one?
Body shape doesn't look strong enough to take any kinda torture though.

only thing good about dc's designs these days are the wheels........awesome alloy designs......thats cos he doesnt make them
the side profile is a mixture of the pajero evo and the peugeot hoggar. The side profile reminds me of the pajero evo........and the large gap between the wheels and the bodywork and the front fender swooping from the bonnet to the back fender reminds me of the hoggar. Its high time DC started making some original designs rather than copy lotsa designs and mix them to make a car. I hear hes gonna showcase a 4x4 at a middle eastern motorshow soon..........the article is in the august issue of autocar.......so im assuming its gonna be this very car. But in terms of prototyping, hes going a long way.......cos it seems hes bagged 5 more international orders(corporate and individual).

o btw, arent those side mirrors very close in terms of design to the ones on the matiz?? or did DC fall short of parts and just bolt on the matiz side mirrors. :P

I like it.

DC seems to have broken away from his typical styling (and signature moves like ugly headlights) that seemed to be getting on most TBHPians nerves.

I cant comment on the practicality of this vehicle, but as a one off/concept its definitely an eye catcher!!
I appreciate the different approach to styling.....

And salil_kulkarni, when building a car like this you make do with what you have. Its not considered a bad thing to do.

Looks like DC was in an angry mood when he went on designing this car.

What the heck is that? Are we being raided by the Martians? Looking at the second picture makes me think....this is the kinda stuff that we could scare kids by!!

Its an eye catcher all right, so was Tarzaan the wonder car. To me, it looks like an ugly insect/bug...the kind I'd love to trash to pieces
