This is Ambierod


I cant understand why everybody is bashing DC, agreed that his most designs are wacky, but still he has superb built quality and finish...
"Dilip Chhabria is our national embarrassment", well why? didnt understand..
Just because his designs are wild or because he screwed up a Rolls........
When his clients are happy with him... wats the point in bashing him...

And guess what, he has none other than Sanjay Dutt to unveil it at the EXPO. Wonder why in the heavens has Sanju baba agreed to such a thing ......

The design looks pretty good to be honest though one still has to see what it has to have a pricetag of 4 crores.

DC is one of the few designers in India to have made a mark internationally and we should encourage people like him rather than be embaressed by him.

I agree with Khanak and the others. Lets not pass judgement on this particular car until we see it. DC might have his flaws, but hey, its a free market. If you do not like his designs, dont buy them. There really is no pressure on anyone, is there?

I think you got to hand it to DC to have the guts to try out something like this. How many folks would dare to tamper with a Rolls? And a marriage between a Rolls and an Amby is seriously out of my realm of thinking.

But then hey, I'm not the one with that sort of moolah. If his customers dont mind, who are we to run him down?

agreed tht he is famous world wide.. but with such designs.. and 4 cr pricetag.. i dont see any point for him to be proud of what he has done.. look at the bajaj's , they have done the correct thing which will be followed by the tata's to make india and indian's proud in the automotive industry.

The picture hardly gives us any good idea of how good or bad it is. I don't like the BIGMOUTH grill omnipresent in almost his every design.

Let's wait for a day or 2 more and see!

Undoubtedly, the quickest way to put 4 crore rupees down the tubes!

looks cool. Do you guys remember the movie "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"? Do you remember Nasiruddin Shah's car in it? I dont know why, but seeing the image i was reminded of that movie
