2door zen the carbon and steel you mean ?
they were launched as limited edition 3 -4 years back (300units)..pink would be a custom colour and new lamps /bumpers i am sure because ..Steel was Silver and Carbon was black (with red interiors)..

This wasnt Steel or Carbon. It was "Pink" And i doubt it was a 2nd hand car. Had a brand new registration.

The headlights / tail-lights were the new-design ones. This one is either a modded job or a new product to be launched. The paint quality was like factory-finish. The car also had a GA-02-S registration. Thats a new regn.

Firstly i would like to know was it new or it can be carbon or steel repainted pink with the change in lights. Or maybe Maruti is at it again! Hopefully they should not launch in pink please!

Women of India rejoice. They will soon have the first car targeted solely at them (from the colour). Instead of launching some fluffy variants in yucky colours, why doesnt MUL launch something serious? Like a Zen GT. With a 1.3 L engine? And handling upgrades?

I think the ladies (especially the flamboyant variety) will love a pink car, even if it were an 800...

It takes attitude to carry off something like that..
