Angry Did you know?

Did you know that:

Hyundai Sonata Embera does 0-100kmph in 3 seconds! ?

Maruti Suzuki Swift does 0-100kmph in 3.8 seconds! ?

Ford Fiesta has been launched in two models one diesel and one petrol and both give same FE?

The 0-100kmph of all the City models is 11 seconds?

If you did not, then watch Aaj Tak (Overdrive car awards report). You are in for a surprise.

And i dont know whether to laugh at all this, or bang my head (not on the wall, but on the idiot box)

:WTF:

Yes it is true indeed. More shocking is the Swift timings. I almost fell of the chair laughing... this is the most disgusting news reporting i have ever witnessed.. just turn on aajtak.. dont know the fools have edited their report or not... That lady reporter with heavy dose of Kajal in her eyes very mildly puts it: "100 Km prati ghante ki raftar keval 3 seconds mein" they are even displaying this data on screen...

P.S. Satya, its not a typo. That lady is "Speaking" these timings as well. See for yourself.

Gee, I want that particular model. Both of them. Where do I give the cheque?

Fools of the first order. If you cant do anything right, its best not to do it at all.

the swift and embera timings must be 0-50 kmph...but, WTH..?? apni marzi se pachas ko sou kar diya..??

it seems aaj tak are applying their journalistic minds here- kuch idhar badhao, kuch udhar ghatao, aur khabar zyada masaledar.. arre bhai, ye gaadi hai, bihar ka palitics nahin..
