i think i saw a red one with a black roof at "d" road churchgate and i didnt believe my eyues, i think it looked horrendous just like this swift.
have even seen a black swift done by rio i think, and it looked worse than any of these.
leaving aside alloys and meaty tyres i think anything done to the swift will looked overdone.

Any conformance this is done by DC. On any vehicle he modifies, the first mod he does is putting his logo on the front. Here I don't see any

Hey Satish ...the car belongs to his daughter(Bonito ..not sure of her name)...mayabe he's too ashamed to modify his own cars...infact none of his cars have his logo on them ..nor the RS,Merc or BMW he owns(dunno if he owns anymore)...but one things common for all his cars have really goodlooking alloys and Really LOW Profile tryres for sure!! (especially the Merc)

the colour combo is pretty bad....maybe he shud hv designed on the lines of the jwrc swift with yellow paint,white alloyys,low pro tyres......cud hv gone for 18" and instead of the rag top a dual sliding sunroofs wud have looked much better.but den he tried to coordinate the white alloys with the white roof.so if he likes it ...good for him.atleast shud hv modified it to a 2 door version.then maybe it wudnt hv looked bad.the white roof wud hv looked good with the blue swift that maruti offers.

The car actually looks good... Except that rag top... Looks fantastic... But like hellspawn mentioned, it would look HOT on a blue swift....

When I saw the topic title, I thought to myself "another nice machine messed up by DC"

THANK GOD its got no weird grilles, funky lights and the usual DC treatment.

Putting bigger wheels on a car doesn't make you a car designer. Even a fool can do that. And DC makes fools out of public by just putting large rims and saying he's "modified" the car. That, and some cheap plastic chunks and bits that you can buy from Leo Mattel or some other toymaker.
