Want to shift gears to more exciting stuff? Welcome to Autocar’s track test as Narain Karthikeyan pummels 11 of India’s best driver’s cars, Audi R8, BMW X6 and Lamborghini Murcielago included. Then we test a people-mover like no other – the 4000bhp WDG4 Diesel Electric Locomotive! We also bring you an exclusive interview with Ratan Tata, who talks about all his cars and also takes us for a drive in his brand-new Ferrari California.
What's an anniversary issue without a few drives down memory lane? There are goosebumps aplenty as we get behind the steering wheel of an immaculate Jaguar XK120. Then take another wonderful journey to watch the Merc S-class grow up. And finally, the Tata Nano takes on the Maruti 800 (SS80) in a battle that was 26 years in the making. On two wheels, Yamaha’s feisty Fazer 150 challenges the Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTS-I’s supremacy. Can the Yam usurp the throne?
To calm things down a bit after all that free-revving, we head to the peaceful Dharamsala which makes for a blissful getaway.
In the sports section, read what the ever-outspoken Niki Lauda has to say about Formula 1, past and present. Also read about F1's most fierce racecars ever on a visit back to the turbo era. And head to Sholavaram for Indian motorsport's blast from the past.
All this and much, much more in our 10th anniversary issue. You won't be able to put it down, we promise. Be quick, or our 10th anniv issue will get sold out!
