As & when India becomes a part of WTO they'll be required to remove these import restrictions/duties. Popular expectation is that India will be part of the WTO by 2010/11.

I have seen one of these in Bangalore. The color was some grey kinda color. The same thing though. Saw this on airport road. Any idea how much one of these would cost in India

Spotting one itself was a dream come true for me. 7 monsters together is something special.

That was on the road to the top of Jebel Hafeet the second highest peak in the UAE and the only one with a motorable road leading to the top.

They actually closed the said road to do this speed run.

BTW it was the same driver who totalled a F1 racer recently at the Dubai Autodrome !

Yes, you are right. This is the same place. It's already a very nice road. Now, the road & Transport authority wants to renovate this road too. Wonder what's in their minds.
