The Force India Formula One Team today launched its 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship car and unveiled its new livery against the backdrop of the historic Gateway of India in Mumbai.
The car, called VJM01, is expected to have its first run during the next test session of the team to be held in Barcelona from February 25 to 27.
The highlight of the launch apart from the car were hot Bollywood beauties Shilpa Shetty, Lara Dutta, Shamita Shetty and busty actress Sameera Reddy.
Commenting on the launch of the new Formula One Team car, Dr. Vijay Mallya, Chairman and Managing Director, Force India Formula One Team Limited said, “I am delighted to present before you the livery of the brand new car that will compete in the 2008 FIA Formula One World Championship. Today is a memorable day not only for me as the owner of India’s first-ever Formula One team, but also for millions of Indians who can today watch India occupy a place of pride as Force India becomes the first and only Indian Formula One racing team to compete with the best in the world, at the pinnacle of motorsport.”
Force India is India’s first Formula1 team, so how could it be not associated to our very own Bollywood!
The brand ambassador of the team is none other than Bollywood king Shah Rukh Khan.
While Shilpa and Shamita looked gorgeous in red, Lara Dutta wore a nice green dress. Looks like Indians are following suite of adding the glamor of modern day cars with hot women.
