@vid6639: That's really sad news then. Looks like your information is more current than mine. Which means 9 more poor wheezing horses died whilst pulling that iron ore mine.

this is all senseless until indian traffic conditions not only improve but come to the level of best. What is the use of loosing horses just to make the ride more executive kinda which even cant be used in everyday purpose or in city..Maybe owners of these kinda cars live on countryside and just run their cars on highways.....Cheers

Default Limos in India ROCK !

I personally think its fab that modders in India are going into such fields. Although I am sure quality will improve with time and experince for them. But for a start Executive Coach Builder has done a good job better than the streched camry and accord that I saw in Delhi which were done up by DC.

I also agree that its not an everyday vehicle and can be used ro rent out for weddings, airport transfers, ocassional visits to 5 star hotels etc.

Now I am sure no one would like to leave in a Tempo Traveller in a wedding or arrive in a 5 star hotel driveway in it.



Some other Limos in India are by Parikh Coach Builder

I like this one casue it is a nice size strech unlike just a couple of inches in the camary which DC did



Another one by Parikh I liked is his newer version of Amby limo





Not such a good job was with



but then there always are the first time

Cheers ~

Saw the Endy Limo at the auto show on Saturday (Chennai Trade Center). Was executed well enough.

Leather interiors were of good quality. Ingress and Egress was an issue as the roof was very low. I had to crawl in even though I am of medium height.

Spoke to an american for a good 15 mins who was at the stall and he was mighty impressed when I told him all I could about T-bhp. Gave him the URL and he promised to check it out.

He also said plans are underway to custom build 2 other Endy's... adding 100 inches more.

The company that carried out this work is :

Executive Coach Builder (P) Ltd. based in Chengalpet, Kanchipuram.

Confirmed that there are no engine mod's on the limo and the american guy was mighty impressed with the knowledge and mod's we guys at the forum boast of.

Didnt take any snaps as it's already been put up. The auto show is ok... pretty small with maruti displaying the tiny estillo and HM displaying a Pajero, lancer and a cedia. Other stalls were put up by Top gear, where i enjoyed the antics of J.C., James May & the Hamster on video, few others by a company promoting electric scooters, etc.

IMHO the event is ok and nothing compared to the auto expo's in blore. One can visit the event in case they have no other plans.

Cool Ford Endevour Limo in town.

Hey buddies,

Guess how a stretched Ford Endevour will look like..It look like this



One of friends stretched his brand new ford endevour into this kind in Kerala.The body is done in Chennai.

And Bangalore guys dont get mazed if you spot it in town,the stretchy is here in bangalore for a couple of days.

And stretching the vehicle is his dad's new business..
Got more pics...Commenrs please.

Limousine is just an extended luxury car which is normally driver by a chauffer andhave customised interiors...
As you dont expect yourself to travel around the city in your own private bus ,you cannot expect that with a limousine too..Its meant for long drives and luxury.
So thinking of parking a limousine in a MALL is just out of question.

But Power really matters...Will be getting a test drive in this limousine today or tomorrow and let me bring in my reviews about power after that..
