Wow! An Ambylimo :P

It even sounds funny when you say it! But looks like a job well executed from that pic. Any more details?

The Polo customization costs 10 lacs+taxes over and above the cost of the Donor car.

I think the Polo belongs to DC designs own museum of Weird and Whacky Mod Jobs . I do not understand what has gone wrong with DC and their designs. I cant think of a single great modification done by them recently besides probably the duster which was also not too great. And their price tags are simple outrageous. I mean i would never spend 35lacs on a polo and have it look like that specially when i can buy a way more powerful and better looking BMW, Merc or Audi for that price.

IMO DC designs should stick to interior mod jobs that they do for Innovas, Fortuners and Mini Vans which are great though still pretty steep on costs. Once upon a time i used to be a big fan of their work but no more. They could also stick to making body kits for cars and tie up with dealerships or manufacturers to sell the kits as accessories. Quite a few years back i remember they had a tie up with the Maruti Dealer in Mumbai Vitesse where they would sell body kits for the Zen which used to look quite neat as well.

Sexy Polo , I would love gunmetal instead of yellow for the wheels , my age is catching up I guess .

Yeah ,"DC " this is how its done , even though individual tastes matter,a lot of money spend , resulting in completely changing the dynamics and character of a car, what's the point ?

PS: only a fraction of the money spend unlike the DC yet fabulous results !

Nicely done Polo! Looks authentic.

What engine is under that hood? Any mods? Can we have more pics of the interiors please?

The body kit is just super cool and the detailing in the headlamps is just fantastic.
The only thing I don't like are the yellow wheels, a more sober colour would have improved the look so much.
To me, this is what is modification and not what DC has done to the Polo, i.e ruined it.

I have noticed that most of the cars from Kerala are actually "Tastefully" modified. However I was just wondering why all the cars have the tow hooks permanently attached and also the short black antenna at the rear.

Indeed. Mods mostly come out great, when kept limited. Otherwise if one is planning a complete re-do, there is every chance of turning your car into a crap. (DC seem to be habitual of not missing a single chance)
