Default Team Bhpians favourite car at the Auto-Expo

Hi, chaps
Just wanted to start a poll to ask all of you , your favourite car at the auto expo as to which out of the new displayed cars really took the cake.
For me it had to be the Mustang GT, i spent like a half an hour just standing over there and drooling. My friends literally had to pry me loose from there.
Next mission in life: earn enough to get one of thoose...

Another favourite was the Lancer evo...........what an amazing looking car,,, just went nuts over the body styling and the use of that much carbon fiber pheww.
loved it...

Ps. i tried to cover quite a few but might have left ouot some, so please excuse

Hey, I vote for the Mahindra Lifestyle !! Thats something that I wud luv to have .. practical and wud fit y pocket .. With umlimited funds I wud go for the Evo followed by the 330 BHP Tata rear engined drag car which if Psycho gets to work on wud probably increase by another 40-50 BHP . Also the Swift JWRC car .... Rest of the funds to keep the above mentioned cars in running conditions ...''

Cheers

Any thoughts for the Skoda Yeti, was Yeti-2 on display there..

Also, tell me more about the Mahindra Bolero Inspira.. Was it at par with the other models in the show..

For me it has to be the Suzuki Escudo ,simply because i feel it is one of those SUVs which fits my budget and is destined to be launched in india preety soon and morever its Styling is Extremely beautiful ,one of the best small SUVs i ve ever seen in recent times ..

Or else ,the star of the show is undoubtably the Black Mustang GT ,it rocks ..

Didn't anyone notice the Alfa Romeo in metallic maroon, near the TATA stall? I would rate that no.1 followed by the Mustang.
