The Vampire marked an era of DC’s uniquely and radically designed vehicles that continued for a long time. The Vampire was launched around the time when the DC Akra and DC Arya were revealed in the market. However, the DC Vampire became popular because it was used in the Bollywood movie, “Chall Mere Bhai”, in which Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt and Karishma Kapoor played the lead roles. The car was spotted in the movie several times.

The DC Vampire convertible looks quite intimidating on the roads and since the whole body has been restructured and made from the scratch, there is no similarity of the DC Vampire to the Cielo sedan. When the car came out, it drew a lot of attention and the onlookers gave a mixed reaction towards the car. The front-end of the vehicle seems to be inspired by the Plymouth Prowler while the sides get high slabs that make it unique. DC Design even added the Corvette-inspired tail lamps to the Vampire to give it a truly international look.

The car also gets wide tyres, projector headlamps and a two-door design. It is not known what features the vehicle gets. However, all the features of Cielo sedan are likely to be carried forward by the Vampire. Since the vehicle has been completely redesigned, one should check the documents thoroughly before buying it. Also, since the Cielo sedan has been discontinued for a long time in the Indian market now, one should be careful about the spare parts and maintenance of the vehicle.
