I have seen this car but dont remember where. May the same day on which i was going for Kharghar Drags. Just saw a glimpse of it then due to heavy traffic couldnt see much of it.

Seen this one too, just the rear end though, jutting out of traffic. Was with Drifter and his lit CRDI, on the last Saturday night meet.

Sahil, where in Bandra did you see it?!
Nice car, long enough, good color, good wheels.

P.S. Shouldn't this be in the "Indian Car Scene"?
