Hindustan Ambassador was the choice of vehicle for politicians for a very long time. The production of Ambassadors started back in 1958 and continued till 2014. It was one of the cars that was present when the automotive era had started. Now the PSA group has bought Ambassador and we might see a new-generation Ambassador on our roads. For now, here we have video that render’s a classic version of India’s best selling compact sedan Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The render has been heavily inspired by the design of Hindustan Ambassador and that is seen in the video.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their Youtube channel. The car in the video starts as a regular Maruti Suzuki Dzire. The artist makes number of changes to make it look a lot like a modern day Ambassador or as the artist likes to call it, Maruti Suzuki Dzire Classic. The artist initially changes the colour of the car and paints it completely white which is the colour of most of the politician’s car in our country.
Next change made to the car is the headlights. The stock or the regular headlights have been removed and replaced with classic Ambassador style round headlights. The grille at the front has also been redesigned and is now slightly bigger than before. It gets chrome strips inside and around the grille which adds up to the classic look of the car. The stock fog lamps of the Dzire has also been removed and replaced with round conventional type of lights.
Next thing that makes it look like a classic car are the tyres. The top-end trim of the Maruti Dzire comes with dual tone alloy wheels. Artist has removed that replaced it with rim type wheels with Ambassador like shiny wheel caps. To make it look like a proper politician’s car, artist has also added a red beacon light in the roof. Apart from these changes, everything else remains the same as seen in regular Maruti Dzire.
Maruti recently launched BS6 version of Dzire compact sedan with minor updates. The diesel engine on the Dzire has been discontinued and is now available only with a 1.2 litre Dual Jet petrol engine that we have already seen in Baleno. There are 2 gearbox options: a 5 speed manual and a 5 speed AMT. In future, Maruti will introduce a 48V petrol hybrid engine on the Dzire, which is currently India’s best selling sedan.
