Yeh, definitely the Megane. But is that a wreckage just in front of the Blue Megane? And the location definitely does not look like India.

The Trafic panel van in the lower deck also seems to be damaged.

Two pristine-looking cars, one wreck, and one damaged van. Whats goin on over there?

French cars are an acquired taste, I guess. I used to find the car unusual at first but have started liking it now - the new 2 litre Turbo Megane Sport looks particulary menacing with all those unusual design cues really standing out...

I love all the French designs. French just rule at making quirky awesome stuff.

It's a Vel Satis - an oddball exec saloon, not done very well in the market. Must be a hand me down given to the Mahindra's

The Vel Satis is surprisingly luxurious, but when it comes to the looks department, it's absolutely like Marmite. Incredibly hate-it-or-love-it.
