+1 to Tejas, dosent look like DC's car. He could have had DC badges everywhere. But does look like his lines. Maybe one of the owners stuck lambo badges, then its possible.

Spoiled a perfectly good looking car.

But the looks of the car are synonymous with the kind of **** DC churns out everytime. If it's not DC and some random fellow who got money for this, then I think I'm getting into this business myself. The Lambo badge on the steering wheel...

Note from MOD- The orientation of the pictures has been corrected in first post

As a mod i.e. fit & finish wise this looks like well executed. As for spending 40 L for it, to each his own but it would have looked better without the fake Lamborghini logos

Btw DC always puts his logo on all of his creations I didnt one on this car. So is it really a DC job?

Yuck! What a waste of 40 L. He could have bought a nice Beemer or an Audi and he'd still have some spare cash to soup it up..

As strange as it may seem, a lot of people want something which is unique & completely outrageous. At the end of the day people modify cars like this (body only) to impress the fairer sex. I'm sure the owner would have definitely increased his female fan following. Also how many ppl will be able to tell the diff between this & a real Lambo. I mean how many ppl outside this forum even know of a Lambo & its capabilities. Remember guys, we are not the universe. We are just a miniscule part of it with a good & rational decision making process in mind.

it's definitely a DC but as you can see the badges are installed locally so the guy ha removed the DC logo's and gone with the LAMBO logo's

I cannot believe this is a DC work. It is so cheap to imitate lamborgini with this less than perfect work. The guy who spend 50 lakhs (40 + civic) to insult both companies obviously seems to have a unique taste. Looks like even DC is not happy to proclaim it as their creation(no DC logos)

huh?? guys, the car was a part of a lucky draw, and unless until the winner sold it for 40L, i doubt that claim has any validity in it.

check out the reg number in the pic i posted. its the same as the pics posted in the first page.

the lambo stickers must have been stuck in place of the dc badges by the current owner

Why the thumbs-up man? Civic in stock form looks much better, IMO. And if Lambo started making hodge-podge like this, none of us would dream of driving a Lambo one day. Wouldn't be caught dead in this one. Awful!!!

DC or not, I think that the figure of 40 lakhs is over-stated. No one, however a dumb sod he may be, would pay this figure. How did the post starter come across this figure anyways?
And if the figure is true, i would like to hire the guy who sold this car. He sure knows how to make a sale.
