This looked more like Shreyans making its presence felt rather than these companies.
the three wheeled thing is Can-am Spyder RS

Posting Chevrolet, Premier and JLR. I guess this is the only time you'll hear the names of these three brands taken together. . A beautiful purple Nano was present as well with new interiors. They had converted the empty spaces in front of the driver and front passenger into small boxes with a push-to-open lid. See the pics :-

More pics from TATA. This section also had a lesser amount of crowd. The stand right beside it was where all the chaos was. Ive tried to capture the Land Rover green color of the modified Tata Safari Storme:-

Pictures from the TATA, Shreyans, Force and other Misc pics of the LESS crowded day. eg. There was a 100mtr line to go into the Audi stand. Imagine what its going to be like on the general public days. I didn't black out the No. plates of the SLS for two reasons.

1. Because the car was already intended to be on display so they should have done it themselves if they wanted to protect their identity. Being a law student i know that neither i nor Team-BHP can be sued for clicking a photo of an object that was meant for display in "as-is" condition.

2. In India, you can't run a no. Plate for information unless you have the last few digits of the chassis no. along with it. (Unless you work for the Authority in which this car was registered, in that case, you can do anything you want )

Now, pics from Audi, BMW and MINI. Ive added a few pics of the crowd that was present. Note:- all previous pics of the crowd were ALL people waiting to go into this section. You only had a few seconds to click a picture before someone came in your way or pushed you away. This is the reason for the inferior quality of pictures, apart from my mediocre photography, that is.

Pictures from the BMW, Mahindra, Ssangyong and Peugeot stands, the 6 series convertible was where everyone was declared not worthy enough to touch the vehicles. This was where the incident took place, which i mentioned in my earlier post. Pathetic!. The guy who got his hand pulled was too shocked and polite to even react.

Dont miss the all electric Verito in the pics. I remember similar versions of the Indica and the Scorpio from Mahindra. I assume none of these will make it to production :(, which is sad because sooner or later people will realize that the biggest hidden market for cars that don't require petrol is our motherland!. You just need the right product at the right price. (easier said than done, though)

Loved the 508, if priced correctly, this would be an instant hit:-

The last batch of my Barsaat of pictures, and with this final upload i finally cease to become a newbie and hereinafter be referred to as a BHP-ian.

These pics are of VW, Renault-Nissan, The new Royal Enfield Thunderbird (loved the headlight), Vespa, new i10 and Harley Davidson

The new Beetle mesmerized all, looks more like the old one now. Going to be launched January 2013, according to one volunteer. No idea where it will still be imported.

The Vento drew a lot of attention from the Russian media, for obvious reasons.


Phew its been a long day, Goodnight. Hope you like the pictures :-

One Clarification. The last picture is an Indian and not a Harley.

agreed, but think about it, u had two options before the scorpio or the safari. and people ended up with safari for the looks and scorpio for its features, basically u had nothing better to choose from now with XUV500 suddenly this segment got a huge upgrade in terms of looks feel of the ideal urban compact SUV segment!

now ford with ecosport will also throw some punches around. and its gonna be cheaper than XUV500. and later xylo 5 dr version will also come into play! but these are one segment below. basically an option for the C segment sedan market.

The "hyperedge" has been around for quite a while now. So nothing new on the 160 front.
Lets see Praying so!
It was but seems they gave it new sticker job.

Isnt the 250cc a hint to us?

Guess so.

IMHO, they should have brought the 14bhp, water/oil cooled scooter too ( which they sell abroad).

Hi Anand, Can you kindly put the link for the same. I love & like the linea and was quite disappointed with their pre-Auto Expo launch. I was expecting the 1.6 MJD to be launched with their innovate Autobox (dualogic box).
