The LC is

But, not as much as the ikon given below...

And... I also dont think he did good workj with the porsche cayenne... Was a much better looking car than what he pulled off...

And the LC just proves his style...

Never really been an admirer of DC designs, they all look weird.
He makes them look more like toy cars.

If you see Chip Foose do the designs for his cars, it's amazing just how much he is able to capture on just paper itself. Hats off to that guy!

Simply put - repulsive and revolting..

I have a 1998 Safari that was modded up (only the exterior) by DC. My safari looked great and had fantastic road prescence. I loved the awe inspired stares & looks the beast used to get. It still gets..!!

But this has shocked me to no end. I just could not imagine as to how could he ruin a gorgeous car like LC. Didn't his heart weep while doing this? Money is not everything. Finally, the guy who contracted him for doing this job on his/her LC. That guy should be shackled in the Andamans and never allowed to own a car in his lifetime.

Dunno what he thinks while designing...... Now i know what DC Designs stands for:

1. Do Cry Designs (Means you have to cry after seeing his designs)
2. Don't Cry Designs (Mean he is telling us not to cry after seeing his designing talent)

I bought the reva because in London you don't have to pay congestion charge or parking for it. In London that saves me about 45 pounds a day. 15 in petrol. 10 most of the time in congestion since i always pay late... they add an extra 2 pounds to pay the next day. Usually its 8. and another 15-20 in parking. so it works out great for me.

and for the other question, i have no need for an AMG. I don't want the ML to go any faster then the 500 already does. The SL is a perfect relaxed drive on a summer afternoon. When we want to get down to burning rubber... nothing does it better then Ferrari and porsche's. So why would i buy an SL 55/63 etc. And if i was to buy any... it would be a brabus. far far better then the AMG. However, i do have an AMG bodykit on one of the ML's we own. Looks real nice.

Any idea how much those reva conversions cost?? i think it'll be real fun for London Summer.

man what a cute toy with the tarzaan car's mag wheels fixed on it.
looks like a cute toy collectable to me.
jokes apart man do you guys think this will atleast sell in quiet a few numbers for the people to remember with its own identity other than the reva name fixed on( for being the first electric car in india.).

I dont know why there is so much hype about DC. Most of the times I have seen him making a mess out of a good car. Rarely enough he does something which makes you excited. He is good only for the rich & the prosperous who are on the lookout for finding ways to shell out their excess money.

I still cant get out of my head the mess he made of a Lancruiser, which is featured on the 'Weird n Wacky' thread. Looked like a dog mobile.
