Yes, we checked out most of the cars. But in Ferari normal visitors were not allowed. We tried but were politely told that the preview was only on invitation.

Infact Audi/Merc had whole separate preview section for exclusive customers, although business days had finished by 15th. These customers had a separate entrace from the main entry gate itself.


Continuing, here are pcis form Opel Stall. As Opel (GM) has a tie-up with Suzuki, the Ritz being displayed as Opel Agila (badge engineering??).

But I liked the Front end of Agila comapred to Ritz. It is to be seen if Opel continues the tie-up with Suzuki after GM has sold off Opel to Magna.

Well . Wish they had taken the same design for ritz too. Maybe in the future they decide to revamp the front design.

No, the Ferrai 458 was not there on the display. May be it was showcased for business visitors.

Continuing with Pics, here are photo's of Rolls Royece and BMW display.

Fantastic pics & great effort there Ram.

Just one crib though. Wouldhave liked more coverage of the Lamborghini stall especially around the Reventon, if you know what i mean

It was really difficult to take pictures in the Lamborghini stall, because of crowd around. There, we had to literally push around to get the photo's.

Here are the other Pics of the Lamborghini and photo's of the Renault show.

Wonderful pictures, Ram; many thanks.

It is very easy for me to identify the only vehicle I'd actually send back if they turned up and said "it's yours! for free!"

I'm probably going to get thrown out of Team-BHP for this but --- Hummer is horrible! Why don't their customers just buy the quarry truck they obviously drive in their fantasies!

Toys for boys... I saw a miniature (but very real) JVC digger at the UK Chelsea Flower Show a few years back. Of course I want one! I just don't need my car to look like that!

Thanks 1400rpm and Ginathom.

Yes the "Hummer" was big. I saw few "Hummers" running here in Germany, but on weekend though.

With focus shifting to fuel efficiency/green technology, it will be interesting to see how long Hummber will survive.

Coming my choice of model which I will buy, if it was availible in India (taking my affordability in to account), It would be the KIa soul.

I felt it is a very good urban vehicle with a presence of an SUV.

Fantastic pic Ram, the Reventon is definitely the hottest of the pack,
some how the 458 Italia wasnt such an eye-candy.

India probably is biggest market for hybrid cars considering our fuel efficiency driven minds, hope to see some more of hybrid sedans here in India but definitely not the Reva as displayed.

Great photos. My favorites in the show were the Porsche 911 Sport Classic and the surroundings of the Reventon.
