Default feel it in the flesh.

rk_sans and myself met them near the nice road @ NH4. Have been seriously been holding back from posting from then waiting for arjun to post first.

Well, run your hands on it, peek inside, circle it, check out the lights, the tyres , alloys, whatever, we did it all. We were wonder struck. What a jeep!. Photos don't do justice to the real thing at all. Hear it! WOW again! what a growl! (deserves an extra !)

15 mins? no idea how it flew by. Well they had to carry on and so wished them and said our byes. Chennai's got a new attraction.

Allan said watch and went off the tarmac. We tried our best to keep on the road and THAT THING left us breathing dust. 0-80 in 4 seconds? . Maybe it needs a set of wings. One thing for sure: "The road is no place for that uh.. je.. no ... ???". Sorry can't find any words.

That's it for now! Saving up all writing for when we see that conquering the roughest terrain.
Congrats to Arjun and Allan.
Way to go! Do be careful.

Would love to see how this is off the road. How is the cruising on the highway?

Happy Jeep.
We were cruising at 120 with ease and the jeep was till lunging forward when we hit the pedal harder.
The in gear acceleration is quicker than a laura ,compared it yesterday on the highway. Optimist must be knowing what I mean.

i drove the car for roughly 700kms yesterday on the highway from chitradorga to chennai
reached chennai at 4 in the morning
so we mostly did night driving
was constantly cruising at speeds between 90 to 120
car peforms brilliantly on the road,
still has lots more grunt, did 140 once.
handling was good, wont say brilliant
no overheating issues at all
AC was on throughout
about the efficiency of the ac ask arjun

did a few climbs this morning i would not dare with my orangie
this vehicle managed them effortlessly

all in all
arjun
u have a beautiful jeep
take care of her well
and treat her right n with tons of responsibility
