found both of these in BIG BAZAR. thanx for keeping such models.
i hope GTO & SAMURAI will like it.
this horrible color will be changed to black, the wheels & bull bars to silver. see the RECARO lookalike seats.
they are all from CENTY & are of 1:47 scale.
its known by the name of MAHINDRA CLASSIC.
i have had this one for almost 8 years now will try to put some pics here in 3 weeks (wont be back home for next 3 weeks) i have also attached custom head lights to the same and some custom wheel arcs

Default Taxi Number 9-2-11

Guys, look at my latest - Taxi number Nau - Do - Gyaaraa ! Just loved her at first sight and picked her. She's RC, and a bit low on detailing and proportion, but you've got to hand it to the Chinese for making a model of a Mumbai taxi, just for the Indian market . Probably the first and only RC black and yellow !!

A bit of an aside here but are there any slot car clubs / tracks in Mumbai?

Hey Amit, it's a very basic model - a plastic R/C car !! In fact, it has nothing written below, no make, no scale, and did not come in a box ! She's 9 inches long, so that would be approx 1:18 ?? She would never qualify as a scale model, as the proportions are very wrong - though the lower half is ok, the top half (greenhouse) is very very low. Black and yellow is the only colour scheme on offer, and the price is Rs. 250/-.
What kicked me most was that the Chinese made it and got it to hit our market - it's probably meant to sell only in India.
I shortly intend to jazz her up by adding a bit more chrome where it's missing, ie on the side trims, rear number plate lights, etc. I may also add authentically mad taxi decals such as "Mumbai - Thane - Bhayender - Esselworld" or "Om Namah Shivaay" on the rear windscreen, just for effect.

can you see at the back of the R/C if the name of the producer is given or not. its a really nice one. it will be easy to source the car here then.

Sorry man.. absolutely nothing written, except "RC", "Racer" and "Made in China". Nothing on the car either. But I could check with the shop I got it from, will let you know if I get any leads.
