Unfortunately that's what the heading states. Read through the paragraph. It states that in December 2009 BMW India will evaluate the decision to bring in Mini or not. That's just sensationalizing a small story by Eco Times.

actually - sorry to drag this back up, it is indeed an old corolla and in fact its the same one that we used to have here in South Africa. It was one of the most popular cars here and Toyota had sold many thousands of these until they changed the shape

There is no way that so called countach is an original. The headlights dont match, the wheels are pathetic... A nice attempt, but NOT !

Saw a Silver Jaguar XK in Koyambedu yesterday. Sported a temp regn from Mumbai. Probably someone driving it down from there. Just like the pic here. Sorry I could not click any pics as I was driving. I did catch up with that car though.
