I agree with Canonball.

around 5 years back i saw a DC designed Maruti Gypsy with a whole new body parked beside St. Xavier's college kolkata. though the car looked great all the people passing by on that busy street were shocked to see the fluorescent green paint being washed away by rain water.

I have also seen other DC mods but nothing extraordinary about them. I wonder why Aston Martin never came back to him for another job (i actually thought DC came back to normality when he created that V8 Vantage) .

It's just that he does not have anyone to compete with him in India so he remains glorified by all our Auto Magazines. Proof of that being my friend looks at a San Storm and says "that's a DC car" (and i put my hands on my head).

The GO...hmm I remember seeing this photoshoot happen from my window (overlooking the Bandra-Worli Sealink). I was wondering what this car was all about, looked rather unique and extraordinary back then, and with all the photographers making a huge fuss around it... Next month's ACI (I think it was ACI) carried an article on it. Didn't look half as good in the photographs though.

well to answer your question yeah they actually do...a friend of mine, who also lives in my building has 5 cars done up by DC...3 of them are totaly done up [body panels et all] the other 2 have a new paintjob and swank interiors...I personally love the rims that he slaps on these rides, and well having driven some of these cars, I actually think he does a pretty decent job. I especially love the DC accord V6 [the green one with lambo doors] the car is lighter than the stock accord, so the V6 feels like it has a lot more punch!

The back seriously looks like the front.
Another such creation of his was the DC Infidel which was used in a Parker Pen ad. featuring Big B & Sunil Babu.
IMHO, like the Dodge Viper looks like a viper(snake), the DC Infidel looks like a dog from the front.

The tail of DC's new supercar is similar to that of the 'DC GO'.

Default DC Design Cars

I found a site that had some of DC Design's older work and wanted to share it.

Cheers

The silver Mercedes is a car i've seen personally. It's hideous. Used to be at Choksi's once in a while, and then showed up at our office one day and I happened to be there. Some of these poor cars have been maligned/tortured/mutilated beyond recognition!!

DC's earlier "Karma" based on Tata Sierra was a wicked looking mod and till date his one of the best works amongst cars
