It's the same treatment used for last years Mercedes Benz calander.
Curious to know if it's street legal in India.

I saw the same paint scheme on a Marina stationed at the Tata Corporate showroom at Prabhadevi, Wasan Motors is it? They've taken it off display though, for good, hurt my eyes in the mornings every time I took a bus to college. It has now been replaced with a Marina coloured in a shade of Turquoise.

Tata probably used Alsacorps products for this particular Marina.

I also read in the Forbes magazine that websites have started localising content based on your I.P. address. Though I doubt the possibility for this website, dont be surprised seeing it on many in the near future.

Or maybe TATA is doing a calender issue of it's own "like Merc did".
