Wow now an Audi pedal car . There was this pedal car of an austin that a close friend of my father's owned. My father had put in a engine and the car was suitable to be driven by a 7-10 year old child. He had done the complete braking system and the drive train.

Its a 1:2 scale and costs Euro 10000/-.

Audi Merchandise Shop - Please browse by category or by collection in the shop fast navigation

At the R8 launch they had a kid drive it in-front of the new R8, a R8 lemans and a Auto Union replica from the museum.

Sorry, Harit, there certainly was a 240D in the W115 range - in fact the same famous OM616 engine it was too, if I remember right. The W115 even got a 300D in it's later years.

Edit:
@muditgrover, thanks for all the Jaipur rally pix - pity I missed the event; having crossed Jaipur the previous evening (Friday) driving back from Surat, I could easily have modified the schedule but for a meeting in Delhi on Saturday that was an absolute must to be present for.

Hi,
Rambagh Palace or not, the badge is wrong because this model 240D did not exist in a fintail.
Rambagh Palace may not have put it, maybe the workshop where the car was done up put the wrong log either because a diesel engine has been fitted, or because theym wanted to plug the holes where an original one was fitted.

Cheers harit

I would guess the car is a 'heritage taxi', many hotels in the region run classics for joyrides and airport pickups, powered by diesel engines. I believe later Mercedes diesels from the 80s and 90s are a more easy fit into earlier cars as well.

Absolutely right! Visitors have to pay Rs. 11k to travel using these cars to airport.

Last year a Porsche also participated!

The next event is coming up on 4th and 5th of February 2012, here is the advertisement from a local Newspaper. This would have clashed with the Mumbai event if it had not been postponed. Wonder if any car from Mumbai will be entered.
Is the car pictured from Jaipur, or is it a random photo from the net?

Cheers harit

This event is to start tomorrow.
I believe there are two judges, and they are from Mumbai.
I believe that there is also one entry from Mumbai, and hopefully it will win a prize, not for having travelled the longest distance but for the restoration. Lots of prestige involved here, and a victory will make us in Mumbai very proud. Awaiting some nice photos.
Good luck to our boys!

Cheers harit

I had some work as wasnt able to give much time... there were a bunch of new presenters and audi this time did the right thing..

Audi R8 V10 Spyder was on the showcase and Audi 100 CD which Ravi Shastri won in some cricket match.

There are not much pics like the last time, please live with it.. Only 90 in total..

There were two special cars from Mumbai

I know I am not a good photographer and did way too much of post processing.. Please forgive ..
