This has been posted here before and i have seen this car several times in JB nagar, andheri-e.
Its not Hummy, its Mummy, because the guy driving behind the car must be calling his.

Guys the orange KA car is a DC. the gypsy is some cheapo mod by someone else. Doesn't look like DC's style to me. The orange car i believe is the 2 door 2 seater DCed swift gifted to a 15 year old girl by her businessman father on her B'Day. The cost of the project was roughly 15 lakhs...

Talking What the..!!

Saw this monstrosity some days back on the flyover opposite the old Hanuman temple in Delhi.
This one suffers from the inverted spoiler syndrome as well.
whats important to note here is the fact the the cable for the led's in the spoiler can be seen hanging from the "top" of the spoiler!
Plus this guy had a sticker for the T.v show "splitsvilla" reflecting his high taste in life!


---Apologies for the bad quality of the pic, was driving so could not get a proper angle---

The cable is for powering the LEDs on the spoiler.

What do you do to make the ugly rear of a car look uglier?
Get 'inspired' by the old lan-evos and kit it with a huuuuuuuuge spoiler (lan-evo lookalike), but just to ensure that you need some originality in it as well, paste it upside down. So now, you have a baleno with a rear that may give many other baleno owners a 'superiority complex'.
How, I wish I had something like that Red Monster-gypsy to rear end that baleno and make it look a little better.

Spot on - it is a DC creation. The pictures were taken on the Marathahalli railway overbridge.

That looks like a spoiler for a Cedia/Lancer. Did not fit the right way up. So they decided to fix it upside down?

That cable is to power the Brake light on the spoiler.

Since its fitted upside down the wire is just hanging.

Id like to follow that baleno on the highway at around 160-180. Something tells me it will be ripped off the vehicle.

Also - Hummy

check out the bumper of that baleno carefully and what I can see is that the car belongs to someone associated with a police. (red/blue plate)

There's more to the inverted spoiler syndrome than meets the eye - its a functional mod - the inverted spoiler produces lift!

Some weight reduction and a B16 swap are probably on the cards.

Take off speed should be about 220Km/hr. Now all he needs is a good runway.
