Default Car Used in the Thumbs Up commercial

Hi,
guys most if you must have seen the Thumbs Up commercial featuring Akshay Kumar and the more interesting orange car (which looks like a Contessa).
Does anybody know whom it belongs to and who was behind the mods ?I simply loved the color and the alloys it sports.

I feel its a 1970's Dodge challenger replica. Looks too small to be the real thing. Maybe something like the countach replica in mumbai!!
