Default Ferrari spotted in Trivandrum

This Ferrari was said to be owned by 'Somatheeram Resort', Poovar, (near to Kovalam). It is parked in the yard of T V Sunderam Iyengar & Sons FIAT & Mahindra Showroom at Neeramankara. The photos are old, perhaps 4- 5 years. Had got this forwarded from somebody.

LOGAN Taxi Pictures from Bangalore. There are around 1100 Logans in Bangalore roads.

EASYCABS & KSTDC have all LOGANS. MERU too have around 500 LOGANs apart from Indigo Marinas which were introduced recently

Images from Kolkata-includes taxis -some with white wall tyres. I visited Austin Distributors showroom (one of the oldest HM dealers) and requested them for allowing me to take Amby pictures. Took many of ones in the showroom and some ready for delivery. The Morris Cowley, Oxford and Issis Owners Club, Oxford , UK has requested me to send them some showroom Amby pictures for the quarterly journal and there can be no better place as compared to Kolkata, to click brand new Ambys. The 1500DSL is still a hit with taxi drivers (costs Rs 382000 something withouts RTO, insurance) while the 2000DSL ( at around Rs 5L depending on the variant selected) sells well, though dwindling, for private users.
I had a chat with the Sales Manager and apprehended that the car's production may be stopped due to the mounting losses by HM.He said no way, there's no such news from the HM Hqs. Thats a relief for Amby fans.
Wonder why the rear leaf spring suspensions for the Amby cannot be made into coil springs. The Scorpio has been done up and the change is much perceptible. Why can't HM do a Lotus Design UK, consultancy to switch over to coil springs?

Mahindras remain the undisputed leader in the long distance sweepstakes.The Tata Sumos are also seen- a few with soft tops.The Tata Ace has made a grand entry for the intra-city transport. And Chhattisgarh has no State Transport Deptt managing buses. All the buses are private and carry the label "Chhattisgarh Sarkar Dwara Adhikrith"

Well, the vehicle is actually doing the job of a taxi, hence posted it .

The most funny position is the guy sitting right opposite to the driver, really innovative.

Wish that Land Rover is refurbished to its former glory. It looks very sad :(

Bangalore has the best taxis and Kolkata/Mumbai tie for the most decrepit taxis in India.
