A new one would cost 16lacs+ since[duty,octroi,taxes=160%]
I might be wrong, but new or old would not make much of a difference... as per the threads on importing cars, importing a brand new non registered one would have custom duty in the range of 105%, and if you import a used one, the duty is in the range of 180%

Wow 30 is amazing. If they can stretch it and put 2 seats in the back, its will be an 800 cc revolution all over again in this country

The Smart has two similar looking circular orifices on both sides of the rear. The Fuel Filler cap is on the RHS while the LHS has the Air Intake for the engine.
