I prefer the other body style in the safari. The one in which the rear door opens sideways like the scorpio's tailgate.

@ All,
Got the clue about this Premier Padmini Safari's owner, Mr.Bhide; who is staying in the opposite building where is car is lying. My brother who showed me this car is saying that the car is standstill for almost 2 years.

The car has been Blue and white for a few months now, and I hear the price has shot up too... Sad to hear though...


OK Guys, Can we please Start Discussing the 1st August Drive. I really do not want a white wash like last time...

Indeed it is. This trim was fitted to the high end 1200 Gran Luce. The front grille pattern was like the Italian Delight grilles, but same curved shape like Selects.
