Would like to know more about this BS4 engine. To say I'm sceptical would be putting it mildly.

Some brand new ENCORE's clicked by us at M/s Austin Distributors, Kolkata.
THE MANAGEMENT & STAFF WERE ELATED TO KNOW ABOUT OUR Ambassador and Landmaster Fans, Aficionados and Owners Club of India page on Face Book.
We are extremely thankful to the management of M/s Austin Distributors, Kolkata to allow us to click the cars at their showroom.
The showroom had many visitors and is now a beehive of activity after the Encore launch.
This is contrary to the scenario prevailing in June 2013, when during our previous visit only the staff was seen in the showroom.

Default RIP Ambassador

End of the road for Ambassador is what this article says...

Sad. Wish there was a twist in the tale with someone like DC joining hands with some corporates to infuse some design changes or whatever it takes to revive the brand instead of letting it go. Maybe I like fairy tales!

Brands like Rolls-Royce can be resuscitated via buyouts. I think the Ambassador's brand image is not comparable! Most of us (at least those of us over 40) have ridden largely in Ambassadors as children, but the memories are mixed -- my parents had two (both used -- that was normal in those days), the first was troublesome from start to end, the second served well in comparison, but they got rid of it (for a Maruti 800) as soon as they could. I think the main memory for most people who had an Ambassador as children is the engine overheating, steam coming out of the hood, etc!

In short, I don't see hope for a resurrection of the brand.
