An unexpected surprise at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo, the king of going fast, the Nissan GT-R! The GT-R is one of the quickest cars on the planet, being capable of going from 0 to 100 kph in just under 2 seconds! It is also those the type of car that is along with the Mitsubishi Evo/Lancer series, what came to be known as the staple of the racing scene, as the definitive sports car that will be at home equally on the track and on the street, epitomizing everyting that is right about Japanese supercars. Also a personal favorite! The GT-R comes with a hand-made 3.8 Liter Twin Turbo V6 capable of 545 PS at 6400 RPM and 463 Nm from 3200-5800 RPM band! The Nissan GT-R is expected to be launched in India in September 2016 and will sport a price tag of 2 Crore. The car in the picture seems to be itching to race away!
Mercedes-Benz’s new Multi-Axle bus model probably undergoing road tests spotted outside a BharatBenz showroom in a central Tamil Nadu town. The bus is a ground-breaking 15 meters long, breaking Volvo 9400PX‘s (B11R – now discontinued) 14.5 m meter length record, making it the longest bus in India (and Asia). 15 meters is also the legally the longest length any passenger road vehicle can have in India. The bus features a radical steerable rear tag axle in addition to ESP, ABS, all-round disc brakes and all the usual goodies. The bus model hasn’t been named yet but seems to be called the “Ultra High Deck” and was launched in July 2015. The front-end design of the bus with its distributed vertically stacked lights and AMG-style huge single-bar grille and Mercedes logo marks a radical departure from the old boring Mercedes design and also general bus design which are all straight-line horizontally oriented as of now. A Parveen Benz bus can also be seen.
