FERRARI RULZ man
It was said DC will be getting the engines imported possibly from US.
They will be made by Ford and reworked some by enginnering firm to make it Faster.


By the way I feel nice to hear that India's name will be also displayed as a Manufacturer of a sportscar.
Wont call it a supercar as the production wont be limited to few nos. expect some 100's of these cars, of which most will be exported to Europe,US.

Thats what I had read somewhere. And yes the engine specs did match that of F430. May be just on paper yet.

Ahh seen this car at worli opposite my office. Looks to be in a bad bad condition. Dont really know how it can be driven in Traffic, Its got like a 1.5meter long dash in front of the driver and absolutely no space inside.

The car is a Wreck the last time i saw it. Its a wonder it still moves after the movie.

The car made for another Salman Khan movie was based on a Cielo. The Taarzan is built on a Toyota MR2. If you want to why I say this PM me

Was Ceilo even there in 1993? I think it was launched in 1995.

This is the car (Vampire) based on Cielo. It was shown at Mumbai Auto Show in 1999. This car was in the movie Chal Mere Bhai starring Sanjay Dutt, Salman Khan and karishma Kapoor.

The Cielo was launched in early 1995 with deliveries beginning in July of that year.
