I too saw that Program. It was on WHEELOCITY.

The design could have been much much better.
I'll design a similar one on photoshop someday.

The quality of work is not great at all.
Interiors were good though.

The front end has these small rectangular lamps with a full mesh grill.It makes the car look cheap.
The rear end too doesn't look that great.

All in all looks like the designers had their share of the "Royal Challenge" before going to the sketch boards.

The price quoted was somewhere around "Rs. 7.5 Lakhs" + the price of the car.

I shudder on the thought of how this Swift must handle.

It could have been made quite nice to look at so easily. The Sharp angle at which the A pillar hits the roof is sad. The shapes or are they just colours in the front, could have been done away with. The slope of the roof could have been made smoother. The wheels should have been larger...

No I take back my words, a lot would have to be done to make this nice to look at. But still, I tend to think this was designed in a hurry.

Looks like a Swift buggy designed for the Dakar Rally. The taillamps are aftermarket Octavia units.

DC has some serious competition now!

Thumbs down

The designer / modifier has really taken on a "Royal Challenge" to make the weirdest car on wheels.

I always thought Mr. Mallaya was a man of fine taste. Alas I was wrong !!!

It sure is a "challenge" to convert a perfectly nice car into this monsterosity !!! The best part is they are giving away a old car as a prize - WEIRD !!

I hope the winner is drunk enough to believe he is getting a nice car !!!



Cheers

There's a good chance that Mr. Mallya wouldn't even have known about this at all.
He would've driven his hummer above it.
