The tribeca's front looks like a combi of the boxter (headlights) and the alfa romeo. The back looks very peugeot.

The Gwiz looks so REVA!!!

Awesome pics redcandle. Good show!!

Godspeed.

Alok.

Why only one pic of the dear dear impreza?!

If I had a choice I would have taken the impreza and the X5. Darn thing looks like it's just back from Paris-Dakar!

The 911 & the Mustang come in second!!!

My sentiments about the TVR are the same as jkdas!

Why does the Carver One need a spoiler?! Does it go so fast that its a$$ gets nervous?! Awesome design concept none the less!

Less said about the Fox the better. Hope junk like that doesn't come to India. It looks so BORING, plasticky and downright cheap! Would expect much better from VW! Moreover, even my Zen, or the closest lookers to it, the Indica & the Getz, are faster than that crap.
(Everybody: DO NOT start a/an debate/argument with me on this, everything said are my personal views on the car, which I believe in and which you may not like)

Godspeed.

Alok.

Its awesome??? Tell me about it!!!! It was so cool that some chinese people were coming upto it and acting (for pictures) as if they were lifting it with both hands. And when you see the picture it seems true (although it can be) since there is no explanation for it.


The car is actually stck onto a metal rod/frame that roots from the front right wheel. I believe that the car is stripped off all weight so it is as light as possible. It is one of the Range Rover Sports or a replica that is doing a round the world trip (as far as i know).


Thanks

Thanks Karthik,

Do You see that Silver Disco in the second RR/LR picture? They had a little circuit in one of the parks. They had the 8-10 obstacles in the track which pushed the car to the limits in the worst conditions it could ever face. Then they had a Range Rover Sport (which I went in), Range Rover Vogue, LR Discovery that were going round the circuit.

The picture above shows the Disco overcoming the first obstacle. where it had to go to the other side of the hill (man made) then it had a near 50 degree angle (that was created on the side of a truck trailer) that the car had to climb (which all the car did with ease), once on top of the truck the driver said he's going to roll the car down at near 50 degree angle on the other side of the truck without using any brake or gear to slow the car down. The thought was scary but the car scrolled down at near 2 mph speed with the help of some Hill Descent System that rolls the car down at a preset speed.

The next big obstacle was driving on a slippery surface tilted 45 - 55 degree sidewards. the car did not slip at all and the traction control and the active air suspension kept its grip. The last most amazing obstacle was when the car is supposedely going on a very rough terrain with only two or three wheels on ground at any given time. That was superb as the on car 3D display shows you which tyre is off / on the ground, and which tyre is turned which way, and which tyre is moving. It shows how the power from the wheel off the ground is being transfered to other wheels on the ground.

It was just absolutely amazing.


Obstacle 1 :





Obstacle 2:







Obstacle 3:




Obstacle 4:












Thanks
