are there going to be any new cars or the same cars we see regularly on our roads ? I went once, other than Mahindra offroading and RR everything else was so common and boring.

However would like to see the cars on display there, esp Mods, will there be our Yeti's stuff on display

Mumbai's own AUTO EXPO - only difference is this one's one performance oriented show with all the drool super cars here.

I have never attended one of these BUT would love to - maybe next year.

Did not know the JCB Diesel Max was being displayed - Wonder how they are going to transport that Beast !

GTO,

Interesting info. Will the 'regular' manufacturers that you've listed, (basically excluding marques such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and so on), showcase their performance cars/one-off concept cars or will it be sporting versions of their regular offerings ( viz. hypothetically, will Ford show us their Ford Focus RS that they might like to launch in India?).

If it is the latter, then it will be even more interesting as it will be something that we can hope to see/buy here in the coming years.

Regards

But, he can sit in the driver's seat and pose for the cameras when the vehicle gets stuck in the muck!
Don't know which day and what time, but, I'll certainly be visiting the show.

I will be visting the show the day Cyrus will get stuck in the 4x4 . Hope to see good show this year. Will visit on the weekend and it would be great to catch up with other BHPians there.

@Cyrus: Hope to see some good scale models on sale too. Get that E Class which I told you about.
