India’s own automotive design house, DC Design had first unveiled ‘Taarzan – The Wonder Car’ on 15th July, 2004 a month ahead of movie release. The car was based on a Toyota MR2 (1991 model) with a mid-engined, rear-wheel drive layout and a full cab-forward design.

This car was first re-modelled and showcased at the 2002 Auto Expo in New Delhi, in the form of the DC Infidel showcasing DC’s design capabilities to the Europeans especially. For me, even today DC Infidel looks like a thoroughbred sportscar and is one of DC’s best creations. The Infidel formed the basis for a slightly more exaggerated creation of the same car in 2004, the Taarzan.

The car was back on DC’s drawing board, and re-designed start from scratch. It took the team eight months to design and produce Taarzan. It was second model based on the MR2 platform and was out for sale at a whooping cost of Rs. 2 crore. We are not sure, if DC design has managed to sell it or not. And later in 2006, the Taarzan was again-up for sale in ebay asking a price of Rs. 35 lakh for 15 year old vehicle, again we aren’t sure if it has found any buyers. For the 8 long years the Taarzan wasn’t in the news, today  all that I found is this abandoned picture of ‘Taarzan – The Wonder Car’.

In the movie, the Taarzan is the hero on four wheels and can swim, fly, cross fires and fight villains as well! 😛

    Worst car in Indian history. Glad its not on the market right now. DC is a disgrace to Indian Designer’s community. On one side Companies like TVS, Mahindra are creating masterpieces along with Pininfarina & BMW and on the other side dumbfucks like DC are ruining Indian Automotive industry’s image.
