Sorry for the pics quality as was from a mobile cam.

What Merc is that? It looks like an Audi TT with a M-class bumper!

That wierd looking car with the merc emblem vaguely resembles a DC design car. Any one feeling the same vibe?

Gosh ! I hope it's not true but my hunch is that DC has ruined a 370Z !

Just checked DC Designs website. It is a DC Design car. Classic example of his horrendous work.

Your hunch is pretty close AFAIK. Although I think it's a 350Z, there's no way DC got his hands on a 370Z already!

@Sahil and F450: Its not a 350 or 370z

That car is a Mercedes W140 S500 done up by DC long time ago.

Seems to be true. The car really looks imposing in person. Though Hummer makes sure everyone knows who is the Boss

Oh well, at least he hasn't trespassed the worst of modification sins: Brand Hybridisation.

Car still looks ugly though. Very.

Default Hummer and Merc near dhaula kuan :)

The Hummer looks great and but it is pain in the *** as far as the fuel efficiency is concerned.The 3 cars behind hummer for sure 2 of them are Lexus and middle looks like NISSAN 350Z Fairlady if my guess is correct as the sidelines of the car match with those of Nissan Fairlady.

The Merc looks horrible and was on display longtime back at AutoExpo by DC.

Chetan

Oh yes i've been to that pump often.to meet some friends working at Gyro.
You think that the merc looks horrible,.lol.wait till you get up close to it.its the worst mod ever.the body surface and paint has cracks because of too much putty used to shape the car.the glass used is pathetic.and the glass is actually coming off at places in the front as well as the back.

You know looking at these old modified cars one actually can evaluate whats going to happen to their car after a few years if its modified by DC or other modifiers who use putty to shape the car.
Another example being that wide body Accord V6 which had the shape of an amby from the behind.

Mates, just a quick piece of off-topic advice. You'll want to consider editing your posts before you get an infraction.

Really, now am doubtful,thinking of going back and doing a double check.
@Bhalla- Yup it is indeed Nissan 350Z behind Lexus SC430 so take my words back.

See that quite often.
The merc is DC modded old S Class.

P.S Did you not spot the 6 series behind the Lexus ?

It was there yesterday!
