I don't think so, since IIRC your Copyright or Patent, can't remember which expires after a period of 25 years so if people want they can make clones/copies of one's creation without fears of a legal backlash. For eg. look at how the Lotus Seven has been copied by companies like Caterham, Westfield and now Elvin.

The efforts are really appreciable, but the price tag...... man u can build a villa and make it moving in 4 crores. And the goodies....... u can sit in the balcony with a cup of latte....lol.. What I mean is, the effort is nice, car is great but the price is too much.

The Ambierod is a concept. Build a hot rod which basically looks the the AMby - that is anyday a great idea.

But a concept hotrod is not for you to buy. It is often not for anyone to buy at all.

He will build it, show it off, gain some publicity, and get a lot more contracts for other cheaper, practical designs.

That is the idea. 4 crore is nothing for a concept. That is because nobody is gonna buy it - and he doesnt't expect anyone to. A compact car concept might cost 4 crores. Don't go by what the reporters of newspapers say - they get confused talking to him, and write rubbish. He probably already has a single confirmed buyer for the Ambierod. So he is not going to lose any money either.

It is a concept. Look at it and like it or dislike it. its not meant to be on sale in the showroom!
We know what a concept car means but nobody quotes a pricetag and production schedule for a concept car.

I dont understands what kind of box is it emitting neon lights .

Also wheels bigger than the car and what in the world will this car do with V12 and above that a price of 4 crore it dose not look to me even for the price of a Honda civic
And cars are about speed and looks not to look like a electronic shop like this one with so many LCD and lights and i think styling is about the car and not how many gizmo's or I pods you have in there
I think if it is in designers dreams and not a done deal yet then he should forget it like bad dream

I thought the Skoda already does this? Even the Elantra has these features (engine RPM (oh WOW! ) range etc right?)

What is this? a car or a bar?

IMHO - we should stop pimping cars like this and getting work one on the mechanicals and handling. These are all cosmetics, and most people can make cosmetic changes. The challenge is making the platform that supports cosmetic change!
