Default Re: Lamborghini Sesto Elemento in India? UPDATE: It's a DC modded LP560!

I remember reading about DC Design making and baking their own Carbon Fiber here in Pune making it the first locally produces CF in their press release of the DC Rapier based on the Hyundai Elantra.
So I guess DC has used the same Carbon Fiber here for this car too.

Seriously!!!
Those fake exhausts stick out like a sore thumb!
Why you do this DC, why!?!?

If the donor car was actually a Gallardo and if the GREAT DC does really 'bake' his own carbon fiber, then why not just re-route the exhaust under the spoiler where it's supposed to be! I guess it's DC's way of leaving his signature!

Arent the pics posted above are the "same ones" that were removed? Strange!

As far as the car goes, yes the rear three quarter view looks a bit weird to me as well.

May sound like sour grapes (since neither can I afford the Lambo, nor would I pay a single paisa from my hard-earned money to DC!), but whoever paid to have 'this' done to their Lambo, surely does not have as much taste as he does wealth.

The exhausts might stick out but they have a lovely note. A burbling gurgling loud note which apparently is louder than a LP560.

Why would you possibly want to drive with the tranny exposed like that.

What's that in place of the lower exhaust?

Pretty sure the donar car is a Gallardo. The wipers are a give away too. The side profile is messed up, front is well done.

I just don't get why someone who can afford an LP560 would let DC get his tasteless hands on it.

To turn it into a beautiful replica of a Sesto Elemento of course. To each his own.


Also, what's to say this car doesn't belong to DC himself??

The replica made for the NFS movie is definitely better, at least from the sides.

The car doesn't belong to DC.
The front is done up very well I must admit
The rear is trying hard to look authentic,its the side profile that's making me cringe.

Just realized this so thought of sharing it. If you guys remember on the Day 2 of GS' second trackday, back in Pune a Yellow LP560 with polished Cordelias was seen outside DC Design which eventually went inside. Thats happens to be the same car on which the Sesto is based coz it belongs to the owner of the Sesto and that car wasnt seen thenafter. So that was the time it took to make this replica. And I shall try and retrieve a pic of it and share it with you.

Is it the same car which actor Anil Kapoor drove at BIC to promote one of his movies?

Btw, where are the number plates on the Sesto? Also i don't spot any DC badges? They must be somewhere!

I too thought about the DC badges at first, but in retrospect guessed the owner didn't want em and/or DC wanted it to look authentic enough to not put any.
But that's just a wild guess
