Nice ride you got there. Does the car bottom out on humps? And what about fuel? Does it require any special type of petrol or the regular unlead is sufficient?

Congrats Dante on the super buy. Cool videos as well. Do post more, preferrably in the normal orientation. Play safe when doing such speeds.

No. Thank god the ground clearance is very good. So far no scraping the bottom even when swallowing speed brakers.

Thanks buddy. Yeah next would do a good video.
Don't worry i am safe.
Even though last time i was just going to hit an old lady on the highway, while i was doing 180k. Jumped on brakes, threw gears as fast as i could and stopped the vehicle just around her knees. Indians roads and villagers are very dangerous!
Even 200k is not appropriate for Indian roads, unless and untill the highway is fenced on both sides.

I want to have embossed security number plates but car is still running on temporary number plates, since it hasn't been registered yet.
After registeration it would be MH-15.

Dante, next time you take a video, please keep it on the dashboard facing front, so that we can see the front with sound. Or you can ask your copassengers to do the needful.

And yes, we need a minimum of 5 minutes of adrenaline rush
