Tata Nano has won millions of hearts after it’s launch three days ago in Delhi. One amongst many admirers was Bollywood superstar Sanjay Dutt, who visited the Auto Expo with his girlfriend Manyata, yesterday.
The ‘people’s car’ attracted Sanjay so much that he chose to gift it to Manyata, instead of a DC designed car worth $1m, as he had planned before.
Congrats Sanjay! You just saved Rs.3,99,00,000 by choosing the World’s Cheapest Car!
The Tata Nano’s launch on Thursday marked the day that India’s skills in “frugal engineering” – once represented by clunky, garishly painted Tata trucks, antiquated Ambassador taxi cabs and Mahindra jeeps – finally came of age.
Nano has certainly made waves with it’s sleek modern looks and incredibly cheap price. The grandeur of it’s launch was in many ways related to that of the iPhone in US!
The Rs.100,000 (£1,300) price is about half that of both the Maruti 800, the cheapest car on Indian roads, and the Chery QQ, China’s cheapest model.
Talking about Sanjay, he’s always been passionate about wheels. Having driven Ferrari, Lexus, Hummer and Harley Davidson… this guy surely knows his machines.
What better could he have thought to gift his girlfriend than a car?… A record-shattering car!
