akshay1234 : could be an open top and that thing (roof) is just there to cover it up.
hmmm. Intresting. A convertible Reva.

Come to think of it, doesn't an auto-rick's top look better ?

just saw one with shiny black body and silver roof, seemed quite ok kinda retro look, and wheels indeed are really wide with shiny chrome alloys.

Actually that ain't an Amby roof...it's been hacked off a dukkar Fiat! It even still sports the aluminium trim in the rubber. See the pics for comparison.





Obviously a camoflage, and an intelligent one at that.

I wonder where the remains of that hacked dukkar are...

Doubt it was taken straight off the fiat and slapped on the Reva. The Reva is not as wide as the Fiat.

The reva looks so so so disgusting anyways...This attempt to make it look good is a waste. It need some major major changes for it to sell well and from the looks of it(tail lights) doesnt look like a very different change from the earlier model.

Wonder what jeremy clarkson would do with one of these.

Saw it at VY, The rear does look horrible. But frankly it does not look so bad from the front, in comparison to a regular Reva.

I am wondering what sort of variant this is and when Maini is planning to get it out, also wondering if this seems like a four seater. now that they have achieved 80-100km range with reva-i, dunno how much this will go.

Is that a car? are you serious??
The top part/roof looks like the roof of an autorickshaw.
