The DC California designed by DC Design is a two-seater open-top custom roadster which is said to be based on BMW E64 6-Series two-door sports coupe from the past. The 6-Series is already known as one of the best designs to come out of BMW’s studio. However, this DC California based on the 6-Series takes that style quotient one notch above due to its overall visual appeal. Is it the most beautiful car designed by DC? You tell us!
In the past, we have seen many samples of modifications and customizations from DC Design, most of which are wacky and attention-grabbing. Owned by Dilip Chhabria, DC Design is one of the biggest design houses for automobiles which mostly transforms existing vehicles into completely different looking machines. Here is one of the recent works from the house of DC Design, the DC California. Pictures are shared by Car Crazy India
Flowing body lines!
Talking about the design of the DC California, the custom roadster has a lot of curves flowing throughout its body, which make it look very aerodynamic. The roadster has a curved front bonnet, which ends with a rounded front fascia comprising an ovular front grille and aggressive looking air vents on the sides of the front bumper. On the lower side edges of the bonnet, the slim looking LED headlamps are positioned, which give them an impression of eye-lashes.
The curves on the bonnet flow upwards to form two bulges ahead of the dashboard. These bulges not only look cool but also aid in aerodynamics at high speeds. At the lower edges of these bulges on the bonnet, the stretched rear view mirrors are mounted. The DC California misses out on a proper windshield and pillars, thus giving it a look of a track-ready machine.
The side profile of the DC California looks simple, with air vents recessed in the front fenders. However, the multi-spoke silver alloy wheels give it a sporty stance. The car gets a two-door layout, with the rounded front and rear fenders getting bulges over them, which further aid in its aerodynamics. Behind both the front seats, there are F1 car-like sloping roll structures that flow towards the rear of the car, which is finished in a contrasting shade of silver.
At the rear, the DC California gets a swooping LED tail lamp, which stretches throughout the width of the car and gets two centrally-placed trapezoidal exhaust ports just below them. Other highlights of the DC California here at the back are sporty rear diffusers.
Gets a striking cabin as well
Some of the details visible about the interior are walnut-coloured upholstery and sport seats, a long and high-placed body panel running between the seats, door-mounted speakers for the audio system and faux carbon-fibre touches for the steering wheel. The scissor doors of the DC California open upwards, just like how they open up in a Lamborghini Aventador.
The DC California looks like a one-off customization job and not a series production model like the now-defunct DC Avanti. It surely has to be one of the best looking designs to come off from the DC Design studio.
