it sure does look like the prado tail lights but is not the prado. it is the rav4. look at the size of the car and the roof. size is smaller than the prado and the roof is curved. the prado on the other hand is taller and bigger.

amatmo looks like it too. it seems to be the flavour for the moment. must say it has a solid presence compared to the other SUV'S in the market

no amatmo it was the hummer that was passing through India for an expidition. the car was featured in all the car magazines too. it had come to four seasons in bom and i had the privilage to see it up close. left hand drive auto and a mammoth of a car. when we were going for the photoshoot of the car is when i took a photograph of the car between two busses. the roof of the car was in the level of the window of the bus when pulled up.
rumour has it that there is one hummer h1 in bom brought in parts dureing the gulf war. unfortunately for the owner the car does not fit in the narrow lane outside where the car stands
