The stock Nano from the factory has 3 nuts on the wheels where as this DC job has 4! From what I know, That would require serious modification! How's that?
If you look at the link posted by Atul-C, it says "Mock-up of the D.C. Design Tata Nano, a modified version of the world’s cheapest car". So it is, a photo shop work!

If I was to comment on this, I would have said that DC design is Nano Europa because its tyre has 4 nuts.

Please check this link. Tata Nano Hybrid and Hot Rod Coming to Market - Wheels Blog - NYTimes.com

No Offence, I am just trying out to figure something on the DC version that proves that it is an indian nano.
Hi Atul,

No worries dude, no offense taken!

The DC Nano as you see is based on the Indian Nano. If you notice, the lights on the Indian Nano and the Euro-spec Nano are completely different.

On paper, both the Indian Nano and the Euro-spec Nano are very different. The Europa is longer and wider than the Indian one.

Try and compare the Indian Nano to the Nano Europa and you'll see a lot of visual differences.

I can say that the blue-black DC Nano is an Indian-spec one because of the obvious design elements that it shares with the Indian-spec Nano (For example, the headlights)

P.S. Refer Post #18 (D-BHPian Sidindica's post) in which he has put up pictures of the Nano Europa. I have provided the link below!

The DC modded Nano is not a Photoshop job and I can assure you that.

Search the Forum for a thread on 'The Mumbai Performance-Auto Show, '09' and you'll see that someone has posted a picture of the exact same DC Nano. It was on display! And even in that photo, you can see that it has 4 nuts.

Here is a link: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/india...09-mumbai.html

I think he wanted it to look like to resemble the Bentley FS rear end, But the license plate looks clueless.

I've seen this thing near Keston Rd. Near Style Plus. I too had a hearty laugh when i saw it.


This is what i saw when i went to pick ma sister from school. This is used to Ferry students like they used to do in Mini vans. Parents get the bragging right to say "I send my child to school in a Limo"

IMO it is looking good in pictures. At least the finishing is good.

Neat job on the Qualis. Neat execution. It partially belongs here.

I'm pretty sure it won't be registered as a stretch.

+1 on that , nice set of rubber would have even enhanced the look even more.

I'm just wondering why he stretched the qualis to only use it to commute children
