Post it up on Tata 'NANO' - The People's Car from Tata Motors - they seem to have a forum, design competitions, etc going on there.

Default Nano all the way.

the modified Nano looks better even than Estilo. No offence intended to estilo owners but they will surely feel bad to know that a car which costs one third acyually looks better.

Nano is being touted as the average wage earners' car but believe me it will also be lapped up by rich and upper middle guys equally. to be used by wife, kids, for running errands and for inner city crawls. most people using big seadns like skoda, civic, accords would buy it as a 2nd car. my relative, a contarctor, who owns 4 cars for the whole family says he will buy at least 3 Nanos. he says since he can't decide between red, black and white he'll buy one in each color. now that may be an exaggeration but this shows the general mood prevalent among indians of all classes. as for me, i'm waiting with cheque in hand.

I saw a Nano yesterday, i thought the car hasn't been launched yet, how come some one is driving it? Then i realised it was a Estilo.

How about getting a cheap 2nd hand Smart engine for it? 70+ bhp will be nice, dont you think?

Guys lets not get the cart before the horse (I'm guilty too). Who knows how this thing is going to handle the stock power? Forget modified. The suspension doesn't look too promising as far as I can tell.

Akshay... that spoiler won't do at all. It actually looks good!

One of those big-wing ones would be more suitably ridiculous.

What was it? 0-100Km/hr in 25 Seconds?
