After designing a Bond car and thousands of other designer car for the style conscious, renowned car designer Dilip Chhabria of DC Designs officially unveiled his super luxury concept car dubbed Ambierod back in 2008 at Auto Expo India. The Ambierod design took its inspiration from the design of the oldest Ambassador. The price of Ambierod was meant to be in Rs 4 crore price range. Ambierod’s design followed the same Design lines that of classic Ambassador. The car had butterfly doors and LCD screens, though not really upto the mark. Wonder What happened to this concept car. Oh and it was also meant to be having speed of 309 kmph.
The luxury car was to be equipped with an automated instrumental panel backed by satellite navigation system, rear vision camera, three LCD televisions, internet and videoconferencing-enabled flat bed and multi-colored mood lighting. It was being hyped as an intelligent, retro-futuristic car that had been designed from the iconic Ambassador. The looks of the concept roadster were said to be inspired by the American Hotrods and beyond.
Other than the Ambierod, DC Designs were also to roll out a sports car under its own brand. The DC sports car range was christened ‘S’ and was to carry a price tag of Rs 25 lakhs (US $63,635). The engines, transmission, suspension and the brake system was to be sourced from various global manufacturers. The ‘S’ sports car was to bear the DNA of a Ferrari or Lamborghini with comparable supercar performance and offer 0-100 kmph in 3.7 seconds. But no one knows what happened to these cars… Well lets remember these cars in our memories atleast.
