Default Did Rinspeed lift one from 'Hamara Maruti' ?

Came across the rear lights on the new Rinspeed BamBoo and found an uncanny similarity to the rear lights on the Dzire.

What say ?

Dzire lights where? My eyes are filled with something else.
Also the front light looks like it's taken from the Mini Cooper.

Had the same exact doubt when I saw the image yesterday on engadget (without the distraction). Looked closer to see if it was a swift but the B pillar was completely different.

If engadget had put the above photo shown by rg_chn, I wouldn't caught the tail lamp and wondered !

No big deal here. Even the ORVMs are from the G-Class,I guess. Its a known fact that these small companies raid other manufacturers' parts bins!
