Is there a clip of him driving it?
A Mustang with no tints looks wierd. The dark tints make the car look good.More macho image.

MAN!!! how did they import one in India is the BIG question. A car like this would flout all import regulations.

They are imported as commercial vehicle (TAXIs)

It’s not by accident that the purchase coincides with the release of Race.

Chahiye hi chahiye!

Whatever gave you this idea that its imported as a Commercial Vehicle(Taxi)?
Its only imported under OGL, which any individual can do.

You can import any car you want as long as it is a right hand drive and the engine is 3000 cc and above. It can be a maximum of 3 years old only if its a used car.

The article says that the car costs in the range of 3 crores, which is just blown out of proportion. But since the news is public, now can we have the real price of it please. Off course if the importers don't mind

If I had to make a guess, I'd say, with a load of excessive costs, etc...in the region of 50-55 lakhs.
