Centerstage Mall has big signs saying "No camera". Will try some low quality pics by phonecam.
If someone has a pocket digicam, its easy to smuggle in.

Had to shoot ISO 1600/800(underexposed, so one is almost ISO 3200) so please excuse the noise.

Nice shots, tanveer. The car looks simply awesome, especially from the top.

A question I always had was - why are the rims so small and tyres so thick ?

Very nice shots, Tanveer. I visited your smugmug album. The Mustangs are just fabulous. Nice shot angle.

To handle the extreme Aerodynamic & G-forces exerted on the car especially on high speeds. With the kind of downforce these cars generate coupled to the high-speeds the load factors are huge & hence the tyres have to be able to withstand the pressure while giving great grip & stability.

The car had a flat tyre. Original tyres were unaffordable, so they thought they will get real looking fakes from India.

There are 2-3 MGF's in Gurgaon but I think this one is going to be in the Metropolitan which is the one with the PVR & JBL store. Also bang opposite DT.
