Don't know if any one has spotted the new Gullwing in India as yet.

Just saw one the other day (not in india) looks good but nothing compared to its classic version.

It is a quality car i must admit. I saw it rolled out of a lorry while i was waiting at the showroom to pick my car up from a service.

6.8lts of sheer muscle.

Will be intresting to see what Mr. Clarkson has to make of it.

Wonder who has ordered it. Also are there roads in Gujarat to drive her ???? ( no offense)
