They are launching a car which has usual refinements, including front-firing rockets, hood-mounted target-seeking guns, spike-producing tires, again and a passenger ejector seat, tree cutters, oil slick. It will also be equipped with "adaptive camouflage" a cloaking device that allowed it to become effectively invisible at the push of a button as in the Die another day. I believe mitsubishi is also trying to intergrate remote control via cellphone, where in you can manouvre the car by lying on the backseat and using your cellphone as steering wheel. The car will also have a components of an emergency medical link to MI6 HQ, antidotes to various poisons and a small defibrilator by which you can restore your heart beat if u have a heart attack when driving the car just like bond

Hope i get all these so that i can become the bond, indian james bond

Please publish the source of this article so that we can admonish the relevant agency for this woeful and meaningless piece of drivel.

My anti-virus blocked that page saying that it's infected with a trojan. Best avoided.

Hi,

Though I scanned it a few days ago, forgot to put it up.

Nothing to do with Bond, though, but it appears to be a silent launch by HM.

Whatever it is, I sincerely hope and wish that it's the new Lance Evo (or atleast the regular Lancer). It's time to resurrect the once "King of Indian Roads" Lancer brand. Pls HM, don't spoil Mitsu's image further and let the Lancer brand live forever in India.

James Bond also drove a Ford Mondeo in Casino Royale. So yes, an under 20 lac car holds the possibility of being launched.
But I'd really want HM to bring down the New Lancer which resembles the sinfully sexy EVO!!
And I'd also want them to retain the Cedia at 9.90 ex-showroom with the choice of all them funky colors (yellow especially ).
