I think the auto is just displaying an AD and nothing else.

Hey, I spotted a what-to-call it Amby last night, in Chennai, near Tiruvanmiyur MTC Depot...

Its front was that of the Amby Mark-II, save the headlamps - they were taken from the first generation Santro... Side - typical Amby. And, rear- totally rebuilt, it came from a Lancer, complete with the Mitsubishi logo and the Lancer GLX-d (or was it GLX) chrome stickers... Tyres were that of the good old Amby
Am wondering what to name it! Sambassancer... rather, Samba dancer...

Late at night, and I was in a moving bus, so couldn't take any pix

That esteem has been featured here before. In fact, I think the picture is from here only. Anyways, That is a gypsy underneath I think.

Judging by the leaf springs and the short wheelbase,I'm assuming its a Gypsy with Esteem bodywork!

He could have obliterated the rear doors altogether,like a crossover coupe or something!

Looks more like an esteem body fit over a gypsy chassis

Going OT

When i read stephney, i just remembered something i had read a long while ago on Wiki. Thought i'll share it here:

"The word stepney is used in India, as well as in Egyptian Arabic, to refer the spare tyre of a car, after Stepney Tyre & Rubber Co Ltd's popular spare motor wheel, which was invented by Walter Davies in 1904. The company was named after Stepney Street, Llanelli, Wales. Also in Brazil, the common word for spare tyre, estepe, appears to be derived from 'stepney' through a classic apocope."
