Saw some scale model off-roaders in the pics.
Is there any setup for 1:18 scale models? I want to get one.

Yes, Autocar have their stall with scale models of all sizes. Those off-readers you are referring to are RC cars (Remote Controlled), they have small (1.5-3 cc) engines and are super fun to drive.

Taken away? Why? When I went there yesterday afternoon they were still there. Anyways the cars are out of reach so there is no question of them getting damaged.

If i remember correctly, last year the JCB was only kept for first 2 days. When i had gone there on a Saturday last year it wasn't there. That's the reason i asked.

Nice coverage and great pics. I saw the Thar Crde Adventure HT. Did it also have A/C? Any word on getting the HT with the dealerships?

Yesterday I was in Mumbai for the Autocar Performance Show and was able to see some beautiful sets of wheels in the flesh. (Aston Martins, RR, BMWs and some leaping cats: Jaguar)

As far as down-to-earth, for the common man automobiles go, there was the re-badged Vento: Skoda Rapid and the Renault Pulse (Nissan Micra with a restyled nose) with classy graphics and wearing a bold shade of metallic yellow

BMW Motorrad made its presence felt with the 1200GS - a true globetrotter / Land Rover with two wheels, S100RR, etc.

A point I would like to add is: the lighting setup in hall was pathetic and this did hinder photography.

Also present at the event was the Formula Student team, Orion Racing India, from K. J. Somaiya College of Engineering, Mumbai.

They had their 2011 competitor, the 'Aeton' on display. This is their 5th consecutive year of participation at Formula Student Germany and they are underway preparing their 2012 car.

This car is extremely light weight with a lot of carbon-fiber and composite materials used. The body, steering wheel, air intake, seat, etc. are all made of composite materials.

This car has achieved an acceleration time of 4.32 sec to 75 meters !!

A few Observations:

1) Premier Rio got a lot of people at their booth - atleast at the time that I was there. - More than at any other booth(and it was a small booth). - wonder if they will sell any. The people getting the explanation from the guys at the booth seemed quite earnest.

2) Ford Fiesta too had a lot of interested folks checking it out. Folks were specifically also checking out rear leg room of the CAAAAR - sunny.

3) Maruti (Swift and GV) and TATA (Grande and Safari) both just had 2 vehicles in rally trim done up - almost like an after thought - indicating their belief that this event does not work for them at least. Or maybe they are reserving what they have to show for the Auto Expo. Yes in both cases the vehicles did look quite sport in with rally like logos all over but they could have also show more in the vehicles via some amount of customization. Or mentioned the details of the races that they won in the last year on a placard to go with the theme.

4) Renault Pulse did get people glaring at it and it did look good. They keep the glasses totally darkened with the darkest of films available least someone got a peak in.

5) Race Dynamics has a short demo going on the Punto, Swift and Scorpio ourside the event - in the parking lot, they would give potential customers a test drive - taking them outside from their booth - which was almost the last one in the hall. - Nice low cost Live Demo Idea.

6) The door pannels of the various cars exhibiting real loud Audio systems had bits and pieces that were not as well finished as we would expect for such a show.

Also strange that Honda did not have the City and CRV on display. Just the Civic, Accord, and Brio. Is this a sign of some new model in the near future?
