Got a ride in the car,and yeah couldnt feel any power difference.May be because the drive was too short.
As the owner says,there is an overall increase of 450 kgs and that doesnt affect the power much.But he agreed there is a slight drop of 1-2 kms/lt in FE.
The interior is so comfortable with sliding seats which turns to a bed which can fit 2 adults and the completely reclining seats,one TV,touch screens,one LCD tV.microphones,refrigerator and a bar..The upholestry is not upto the standards of the car..and he said will be improving the upholestry depending upon the customer..
Anyway I feel its nice to see the trend happening here in INDIA.
On asking his inspiration to this..His answer was..
"People have money,then why dont we..??"...

They have already done stretch on Skodas and INNOVAS,XTRAIL..

Default Stretched Ford Endeavour

Hi Guys,

Spotted this Stretched Ford Endeavour in Bangalore near 4th Block Jayanagar with TN registration.
Wonder how they manage to drive these vehicles in a city like Bangalore

I've seen the white stretch version parked in Koramangala a couple of times. Opposite the Koramangala police station. Looks like the owner lives there ... not the station though!!
