Compare its height and ground clearance with the elderly Mercedes W124 and WagonR next to it. The window-sill line is loftier than the Mercedes roof.
Aren't those 225/60R16 Light-Truck tires on 6-bolt truck-torque rims?


Front looks more like a Santro to me.

It does have a santro look but looks like rear wheel drive to me.

The City can be tolerable, but the nano-the less said the better.The original europa nano loks so much tastefully done than this fishmouth frog POS. Carnation + DC (disastrous creations)=

The Nano does not look bad from the side but the front is uggh disgusting!
I cant see why DC bothered with the city, it looks good as it is and his "mods" have not added anything, all of us should thank him for not puking on it too!

That, I think is a Pajero/ mini-pajero modded by DC.

LOL. I almost fell off the chair reading this !
Somebody please tell DC that Nano is a rear engined car - those air-dams at front would make the car go crazy !
OR even better : it'll help in cost reduction - remove the ACs - those HUGE dams up front, will do the cooling for the driver !

Why DC? Why do you have to do that to Nano front bumpers? From side it looks good though.

City - it didn't make much difference I feel; and request DC not to touch that car. Its one of the best looking sedans in India IMO. Dont spoil it with your "creativity".

I think DC is supplying air for the spare wheel in the front inside the space and it looks very ugly IMO

Wonder if DC is also recession hit that they have to come down to this level! That Nano looks like those toy cars which you drag behind and leave, and goes zig zag before finally hitting a wall to come to a stop.

I can't picture anybody else do headlamps like that but for DC.

DC, Please do a 3D model and visualize it before putting it on the car. its hideous. having said that, I'll admit the side profile looks quite good and balanced. Now,I've got tonnes of ideas to execute on a Nano but I don't have a nano to do that on :(

@mods, I guess this post can also be put up in the DC thread. One thread to show all DC cars/creations what say.?

Hey Guys, those are body modification kits which will be made available in local market through Khatters company Carnation. DC and Carnation plan to bring out various kits for many different car models.

The Red monster is a Tata Safari done by DC. The owner wanted something different and infact liked what DC showed him on paper.
