    It's a pity Top Gear has finished. They would like that :D:D

    With 33bhp, James May has probably already ordered one!

    Just what India needs, more cars on the roads.

    (you totally got me with the nano thing too. I opened the thread with a distinct "WTF?" urgency)

    I like it. It also vaguely reminds me of those new Mitsubishi things.

    I wonder if it'll get EU type-approval though?

    Hey, watch what you say about Captain Slow! He loved the new M3.

    I suppose I was being a bit unfair as he does drive a Panda 100...

    They say they're built for "developing countries", but what about "developing people" :eek: I'm fresh out of uni - I want cheap things!

    Haven't TATA been sniffing around Jaguar?

    This is probably just a trial run before they release the Jaguar "Cub"… :eek:

    I doubt it. That Rover City thing he did the secret test on was made by TATA and he thought that was the worst car he had ever tested.

    Nothing wrong with the car, particularly in a developing country. Don't want to make a joke about it, either. It's a bit too easy to laugh at people in poorer countries who can't afford the better alternatives in this world.

    And James May likes cruising cars, that's all!

    Great idea, though I worry about it having no airbags.

    It's probably stronger than welding.

    Seriously? You do understand that most consumer cars have only started having Air Bags in the last 5-7 years, yes?

    Oh, and FWIW, Tiger Seal (The 'Plastic adhesive') will be stronger than welding.

    Judging by the acceleration times... you'll never crash at a high enough speed to activate the airbag anyway.

    haha exactly, I'd love to buy one of these, for how cheap it is, i wonder how horrendously uneconomical it is though, 5mpg anyone?

    There's a fully-loaded version coming out, too, with spinning rims, neon undercarriage, and extra-large airbags.

    It's called the Bodacious Tata.

    The real problem is that they don't have big enough roads to handle cars like this, Vietnamese traffic only works because they all use motorbikes, cars would kill it.
