The Aston Martin Vantage was a Henrik Fisker Design. DC Design is supposed to have given a substantial cost saving when compared to other design studios for prototype building. The Chassis and other material were provided by Aston Martin. DC did the body panels and seats in house if I remember right. Usually Design Houses charge close to $ 5 Million for prototyping. Even if DC offered it for $ 2 Million at 8 crores its still a lot of money for him. What do you reckon he would have spent? His mechanics are in house, the rest of it is mainly fabrication. But the design team from Aston is supposed to have almost lost their mind because of the number of trips they made to and from Mumbai because of DC Design's lack of experience with such a project. But the end result definitely was commendable and put DC on the world map. Though a majority of Indians still think there is an Aston Martin sports car that was designed in India by an Indian Dilip Chhabria

Default Dc Designed Landcruiser

SACRILEGE! SACRILEGE! DC should be made to drive one of his own designs. That'll be a fitting punishment.

He's picked up the headlights from some where and used them as tail lights. A little more modification of the rear side will mean that the car has two 'front's and you will not be able to tell if the car is going in the obverse or the reverse direction.

The rear end of the car has some classic Aston martin looks
