@arjun: doesn't the Mulsanne cost around 2.6cr? I don't think it'll be more expensive than the Phantom, but yes, it'll be far more rarer.

i guess the phantom is the most expensive car in this city.<br />
@arjun: are you refering to the mulsanne i was telling you about? or is this another one?<br />
@turbojc: i guess the mulsanne costs 2.9 crore ex-showroom.
IMO mercedes should have plonked a v8 in the e coupe, the 3.5litre v6 just doesnt make me go buy the car in a heartbeat!

@jagxf: Thanks mate. Does it come with only one engine option? IMO it could do with better alloys than the standard ones. It looks stunning nevertheless.

I don't know if this classifies as an import, but I've seen an Electric Blue Ford Fiesta twice around the Taramani-Velachery area. It seemed to be a test car, as it's badges were blacked out. It looked like this:

@turbojc: yes it comes only with a 3.5l v6, the e500 coupe supposedly costs around about 1.4 crore. the alloys look mediocre they are relatively small as well (17 inches).

Ahhh... the real Fiesta, which is, and always was a hatchback!

Why manufacturers do this thing of using the same name for different cars in different countries, I can not understand. Just causes confusion.

Guys saw the red Zilla today. Driven by NK himself. The GTR was huge and it looked so nice also. Got to see it pretty well because he was making an U turn but after the turn he simply vanished.
It looked awesome.

Errr... I think it was silvery or grey. Whilst my memory does play tricks like that (yep, even total opposite colours of hair, etc), looks like there's two then!
