NIce kits,city & swift are looking awesome but NANO is looking as if it has been cut & put onto something else.

But the prices are still on a higher side[cry]

DC has been spoiling the looks of cars for sometime. He does interiors well and started furniture designing. After a long time seeing some better looking design from his side. All the cars designed by him in a particular time period has similar design philosophy.

IMO, It will be available for all cars with these being just some examples. I think its a very good move by Khattar and DC and surely enough, this market will pick up because more and more people want exclusivity nowadays from the regular look!! I only shudder to think what will happen to these kits in the event of a crash, which is so common in India.

Now who wants to give their beloved cars to DC?
I would rather prefer to take it to an Autopsyche dealer.


About the Modified Innova, I saw its advertisment in one of an auto mag and I was surprised that how can such a feature loaded innova be available at 4.95 lacs, When it alone costs 7+ lacs.

So the 4.95 lacs is the Modification price, Right?

yes vibhor, 4.95 lakhs is the price of customisation. some DC designs are really good, infact you should have a look at the customised volvo bus here.

nobody else can offer you such high tech stuff in india. yes, i do agree that most modified cars by DC look pathetic but i loved his innova. he has not done any major changes outside, all the changes are inside.

ultimately, its all upon the customer right?

@Raj,

No doubt that DC do a great interior designing, Even I too was impressed to see those futuristic interiors of Innova, But for exterior designing, I feel he still needs some improvement.

Here is an image of DC Designed Innova's Interiors.
