Of course yes! Have the DVD too. It was a pretty wicked movie for its time, though the videography feels outdated when you watch it today.

The movie has the ability to actually leave kids scared :0

Oh, I remember watching this movie when I was little. And I was scared silly too! It's quite funny when I think about it now! It would be lovely if I could get my hands on the DVD. I'd like to watch it again!

I was mighty impressed with one (a cab) that I had flagged down in UK once. The ride was plush, and the way it was accelerating (and the cabbie was not driving rash) was akin to a flight about to take off.
The first chase sequence in "The Transporter" also features a 7-series Bimmer being chased by Peugeot 307 and 607 Police cars.

Hey! After you mentioned this movie, i did a research on it and made up my mind to watch it. I went to the Planet M on Brigade road and searched like crazy. The guy in charge said 'was i looking for anything in particular'. I mentioned this movie and said he will place an order. That was 2 weeks ago. Now they call me and say the suppliers are unaware of this movie's existence! Bad timing i guess. Still i have made up my mind to get it 'by all means possible'!

Well lets give credit to the Indian movie scene also. I would vote for "Tarzan - The Wonder Car"

The car was designed by DC.

Yeah I remember that purple contraption! You know actually, although I'm not a fan of DC, I like this one! It's cool in a quirky way!

Sorry for going OT. But any idea what car has gone into the making of this creation ? DC normally used Accords. This one too ?

Nope! Not even close Scorchy! It happens to be a Toyota MR2! I know, it's scary! But look at the bright side! It's mid-engined! Plus, it should pack quite a punch!
