I actually beg to differ from ragz & zak's point of view on the DC Aspire.

Maybe the FireBrigade (danalanalanalingalingaling) has taken a darned good snap, & kick me if you like, but I find the design quite fresh.

And if that body's fabricated metal, as opposed to FRP, then I'm sold.


PS: Anybody got any more snaps? I'd really like to take a better look at the lines.
And no.

I liked the lines of the car..still very sharp....
I dont like the rear that much...Front looks okay..
By the way isnt that bumper design similar to ZX series..

I Liked those Tyres... any specifications..Can they be put on IKON SXI ?????

This time I think DC has done a good job..Atleast at the front..
I always loved his fit and finish..His interiors are the best..Never ever I have said that about his exterior....
By the way why is he making every car smaller than it actual size.??


One MOre NEWS!!!!
That orange swift DC had designed is being gifted at some Kids award...
Lucky or Unlucky kid??..You decide

Had a long chat with the morons at the Apollo Aspire stall as I was quite interested in the tread design of the tyres.

It seems that the smallest size one can get is a 15incher - 195/55R15. Also, they're extremely stupidly priced @ 3700+ bucks per tyre - the darned fools - how the hell will they sell, when one can get even Eagle F1s for around 3200 bucks??!!!

ELF bhai..Thanks...

RS.3700 per tyre..
That means you need to pay atleast 2000 bucks more to run your car...
then it would cost for Eagle..
Ok I dont know much about tyres but I think the cost is too high.,,

Also, elf bhai was that price set for Exhibhition or thats their retail price??..


But the tyres looks much better than the car......

OK. I'm an illiterate donkey. And I apologise, kkr2k2. That was Busa's caffeine enhanced picture style that I didn't want more of. Though I still didn't get your avatar pic bit...

Honest to God, SRK, I have no clue what you're on about. 2000 bucks more to run my car?

Retail price. They weren't selling tyres at the stall.

I'm surprised SRK! You're saying that? Especially considering (from what I know) the fact that you aspire to be a designer. Keep an open mind. This car may not be classically beautiful (none of DC's designs ever are), but there's a nice bunch of lines there.

.
since the apollos cost 500 more per tire than the eagles it would be 2000 more for all 4 tyres..

Oh. Sorry. Not being bitchy, but got lost in the syntax errors.

I have said it first that I loved the flow of the car..and the lines too..
By that statment I meant that the tyres look as if they were given more time to design than the whole car...

Forgive me, but the DC was behaving weird, it has some problems with the pad.
