Yep it is going to fun alright. Gypsy is not as fast so on the tracks that are straight (more or less) this is going to be seen on the horizon. But the rocky stages with tight twists and turns is Gypsy country.

End of the day it is going to be about endurance of man and machine.

The "Kinnears Transport" on the side looks like a paintshop work (a bad paintshop work)..

This is a pre-2006 Grand Vitara, the one on body-on-frame chassis. A very different animal compared to the current generation.

Goodluck Hell Kuul, it will be fun watching the gypsies having something to give nightmares about. Like sudev sir said, its all about the endurance and not as much about the power

Cheers,

Arush

The number plate & tyres seem to suggest this car was not prepared in India or maybe is not even present in India.

Can we have some more pics of the machine please? Preferably in high-res.

P.S. Read the first post again. So the car is in Australia, Mr. Ali you getting it down for the rally only or is it going to stay after the rally too??
