i have spotted this car many a times in juhu and lokhandwala . the white wheels look really look good on grey color but the only thing missing is the white colored side mirrors .

@dippy the red swift with white top is not done by dc . and trust me the grey one looks better done then the red one to my eyes

YUCK !

I never liked the look of the swift... front is just about acceptable but I have always hated the "HUGE ARSE" look of the rear !

Cutting a hole in the roof, painting it white and then covering it up with a black rag + throwing in a set of alloys is not my idea of a "mod" ... White roof on a grey car sticks out like a sore thumb!

Still, although I'm not a fan, DC has done some nice jobs too... I liked the electric blue modded Sierra he had done a decade ago... the one that appeared in a Pepsi ad. with Shah Rukh Khan and some female being trapped inside by a dog. (Anybody remember what he called that car?)

oh.. I saw this DC Swift a few weeks back near Chowpatty..looked nice..I loved the huge alloys+low profile rubber..
The roof paint job looks neat too.
Well done.

Thumbs up

well guys honestly of the paint job was a better combination...i think the two tone isnt so bad....maybe a white on black roof would be nice....but surely the rims r the best...swift ruely needs that height gain.....nows its swiwwfffttlllllyyyy looking...

Doesnt look very DC-ish.... Stuck to the basics, nice work... I saw a red mini with a white top and stripes it looks soo damn similar to the mini! ... A panaromic sunroof would look killer, that cloth gives a flimsy look to the car.

i'm not sure if this has been said before but the swift will definitely look good as a convertible...
It does align with the mini by the looks...

Maruti should try sell a few soft top's!!

Very true.The red one has been done up specially for a customer by Vitesse,Worli.

This one looks neat.Not overdone.But the white wheels according to me kinda spoils the look.

no doubt it looks like the Mini! and well, the Swift is based on the Mini's design! DC just added it a bit more of the MINI feel!

UGLY... That's one word for it. As it is Swift is not a great looking car. Just hyped up.

The swift is nice as it is. This "modification" by DC only makes it ugly. Looks pathetic.
