I feel it has to be the Honda City as DC had earlier designed a similar one for a tyre company with unsymmetrical thread design, maybe Apollo. It was green in colour

I think the lights are similar to that of the Honda Jazz..

If this car is indeed NHC, then what a waste of human energy ! He has turned an object of desire into an object of detest.

I am agreed with Autopsyche. It must be Dolphin City. Yes back has been chopped off. Sharp cut in front and box shape at rear must be done by DC.

Its a very good job overall. Front end is agressive with awesome headlamps. Side profile is inspired by Renault....Megane? Loses the plot a little bit in the rear but still overall v.good. Chip Foose's fav color scheme too.

Do you think the headights are grafted from another car or custom made.

Now, that's what you call bold and beautiful.

Yup I got to agree its a Honda city.
The A pillar and the windscreen have a closer look its the city.

Its understandable why many people think its a Tata Indica.
IMO the "New" honda city looks like half honda half Indica to begin with.

But I think this pic should be in the Wacky mod's thread.. he he

Actually I had posted it there itself, but seems the mods were more curious to find out which car it was ; so it got moved out as a seperate thread
