OT- Are LHD cars not allowed in India? If yes, then how come Mr.Ratan Tata got his Ferrari California in Mumbai?

The camaro looks much better in pictures than IRL. It is way too big and tall for it to be any kind of a serious sports car, but I am sure in the SS trim, it will make for a fast GT.

LHDs are not allowed in India,except for testing i think. About Tata's Cali,guess it has been discussed in some other thread.

Thanks Scorchy!
All thanks to the Kropex guys, I got the complete coverage.
As for firing it up, I did ask them for it too, but supposedly the car was not having any fuel and they were not allowed to put in fuel either, so I asked them how they were transporting it. It is supposedly being carried on a flatbed it seems. Wish to see it on the roads atleast once!

Thank you Yajaman99.
Good that the car doesnt transform, else we'll also risk our extinction as per the movie!

Thanks bro! It was just my luck.
Tomorrow they are going to take it away in the wee hours of morning as they told me, and I could not have seen it tomorrow or as long as it is in bangalore due to my schedule in college!

Preetam,

Fantastic snaps man, thanks for posting!

That camaro sure is a beauty! I just love the sun-glasses styled rear lights!

Also, thank god it has a manual tranny and not a slushbox

It'd be cool to see it prowling our streets!

What you liked is exactly what I did not like! Those chrome bits around the tail lamps are a strict NO for me.

Thank you Robesh.


Just as a NOTE:
I didn't like just two things about the car.

1. The chrome lined tail lamps.
IMO it takes away the sheer brute attitude of the car.

2. The Build Quality.
Speak of american build, and shoddy it is! So shoddy that if you knock on the grille, it feels like a toy from the fair. The plastic looks cheap and feels cheap. Even the Chevy Logos front and back are cheap plastic, with rough edges. The interiors though feels plush, but it could surely do with a better center console.

Robesh, where are these snaps?
The car was not positioned like this at Kropex.
Has the car been moved already?
