Well, it's certainly based on a Sierra platform it seems, but I'm sure the body shell is lifted from a Swift.

It's not that I don't trust you, the DC website might be at fault, if they can do wrong with a car, why not with its name.

This 'old' Swift is 'new' to me.
But it does have a resemblance with DC's 'art work' (supposedly).

Yes, that mustard colored vehicle is based on Tata Sierra. I remember seeing its ads in Auto India circa 1998/1999. It was one of my favorite DC mods There was another similarly modded Gypsy, called DC Ra.

It is a DC design based on the Sierra. It was called the Arya. The doors are a lift from the M1000/Esteem, so are the ORVMs.

I personally feel the design was OK by DC standard, considering the Arya was designed in 1998.

I strongle Agree!!
Its a good design and doesn't deserves to be beaten here.
Was a bit futuristic of its time I would say!

If there's one weird & wacky modification I've come across (and I'm not even sure if it's a Photoshopped image or not), it's on FB today - of an Audi R8 with lift kit and tyres that would set any OTR fan's heart racing faster than the car can!

Doesn't she looks meaner with the actual or virtual upgrades. I kinda like it. Crossover .

Another weirdly modified car, seen on olx classifieds. A baleno with BMW 3 Series (E90) headlamps and tail lights. Front grille looks like it's from an E36 or E34. But I must say that the work looks decent enough.

Spotted his Alto on 27th Main, HSR. The finish looked good, expect for the side facing seats!

If anything I can identify in the car is the Santro's tail lamps. That's wacky! What's with the Apple logo on the fuel lid? ifuel?

Front - he almost pulled it off. If only the bumper was not so flared at the corners.

Rear - not as good as the front ..
