its the Evo VIII. The EVO VII has a plain grille. The VIII has that triangular stuff on the grille.

I doubt these pictures are from India.

1. There is a left hand drive Pontiac parked next to it.
2. There is no front numberplate.
3. There are low chances of a car with this LOW a body kit making it to Lonavla.

Let's say you're right but how do you know that the other car is a Pontiac?

THAT car is THIS car : Look at the rear bumper curvature, the lights integrated into the rear bumper...just about everything.

Well, ST claims he has clicked the pics himself at a resort in Lonavala. And about the LHD Pontiac, why can't it be parked there? There are 2 LHD cars in Hubli itself.

Prob it isn't India afterall but, i don't see any hardcore evidence which can prove that.

i guess we'll have to wait for ST to reply.
one more point is that there is no regn plate at all on the front. If it was blanked out it was ok.
