The owner of DC Design, Dilip Chhabria, graduated from the Art Centre College of Design in California. Afterwards, he started working with General Motors and then returned to India in the 1980s. Initially, he started a car accessory company but his immense love for automobile design led him to establish DC Design. The company is popular for the creation of India's first supercar, the Avanti. It is also quite well known for converting the car's interior into a lounge-like area.
