Issue: 150  |  Autocar India February 2012

Here it is, the big 150, and you can bet we’ve got something special lined up for you. In fact, we’ve got 322 pages worth.

  • Chevrolet Trailblazer scooped: Toyota and Ford had better start worrying. We bring you an exclusive preview of GM’s forthcoming bruiser that’s set to wrestle the competition into submission.
  • White Bull: The Lamborghini Aventador is everything every child imagines their ultimate car to be. So it’s understandable that driving one on what became one of our most memorable road trips ever brought out our inner six-year-old.
  • The nifty one-fifty: To celebrate this milestone issue we revisit the 150 greatest exclusives we’ve broken over the years. And to top it off we’ve also compiled a list of the 150 quickest cars from 0-100kph that we’ve ever tested.
  • It’s Expo time: Once every two years, car and bike makers, Indian and international, gather at Pragati Maidan in Delhi to show us – and the world – what’s in store over the coming years. Read our exhaustive recap of everything from this year’s show.
  • A Storme on the horizon: We got to take an exclusive spin in Tata’s new Safari Storme, and while it looks virtually the same as its forebear, we’re happy to report it’s a very different beast under its rugged skin.
  • New Swift gets the boot: No, it isn’t being discontinued – but Maruti’s excellent hatch has spawned a new Dzire saloon, and this time it’s been kept under four metres. But does it have everything we loved about the hatch?
  • New Toyota Camry driven: We get exclusive wheeltime with Toyota’s brand new luxury saloon on Indian roads. The previous models were priced almost out of contention, but Toyota will assemble this one here. Can it cut the mustard?
  • Autocar Awards 2012: We spent 2011 putting them through their paces and now they’re vying for the ultimate crown. We reveal the results of the prestigious Bloomberg UTV Autocar India Awards.
  • Up close with a drag bike: 0-100 in 0.7 seconds. That’s not a typo. The tarmac-melting Gulf Oil Top Fuel drag bike can really achieve those figures and we simply had to go see it for ourselves.
  • Ducatis in Borneo: We get astride the fantastic Ducati Multistrada 1200 and take in Borneo’s breathtaking scenery.
  • FREE 32-page booklet: A comprehensive breakdown of the highs and lows of 2011’s exciting Formula 1 season.

This is merely a taste of what to expect from this mega issue. Be sure to grab your copy from the nearest magazine stand as soon as possible.
