  1. Chevy Corvette, yes! but not necessarily the ethanol powered version.. its the Z06.. Does someone want to ask a question?
  2. Its the pulsar! Nissan makes a small car called the pulsar and bajaj's star is our very own pulsar.. Regarding the LCV link, they're makers of very different commercial vehicles.. While most of Nissan's LCVs are based off their cars, bajaj's models are based on their gc-max range.. So, thats not the best link possible.. Next question.. Its picture time.. Identify this iconic car from its headlamps..
  3. cars, yes.. LCVs, Micras.. no.. Think of the stars in the universe..
  4. Yup.. thats right.. Lambo simply selected LP640 engines that made more hp than they were meant to.. Next q: Connect Nissan and Bajaj, with something other than their one-lakh car tie-up.. I'm looking for a one-word answer..
  5. Its high time we revived this thread.. Q: How did Lambo get the Reventon engines to produce 10 hp more than the Murcielago LP640?
  6. sorry for the delay guys.. yes, VTEC guy, your answer's right.. but i have no idea about your q, though.. A big HI to designersf!
  7. don't know if this is q is getting a bit too vague.. anyway, a final clue: They're following a "safe" formula.. The numbers in brackets represent years, by the way..
  8. no, connect it with the number.. ok, let me give another clue.. an updated list.. this will make things a bit easier.. Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG(08) Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG(03) Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CL 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG(99)
  9. Wow! this 'Elk' question had my finalists crossed up.. This is great.. here's the next one - connect: Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG Mercedes-Benz CLK 63 AMG Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CL 55 AMG Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG(99) Other than the fact that they're AMG-kitted super-fast Mercs (the last no. is a big clue)
  10. Of course i will.. In fact, the questions will get even tougher, now that i have a good number of them with me.. Here they come... Mercedes Benz cars are known world over for their safety. But their 1997 A-Class failed a real life maneuvering test called the Elk Test. The car had to simulate an environment where it had to suddenly avoid an Elk crossing the road, moving quickly through cones forming a s-bend. While older cars easily passed the test, the A-class almost rolled over while testing. This caused a dent in the public image of the brand. Immediately, Merc updated the A-class and added a crucial safety feature to all its models. What is that safety feature?
  11. Thats right.. And guys, a big thanks for the response to this thread.. Its motivated me all the way to conduct my own auto quiz in our inter-college festival.. and guess what, it was a great success! i used a few questions posted by other forum members in this thread, and they proved to be the toughest nuts to crack.. The experience here has proved valuable and i've vowed to do it again next year.. thanks again guys, for your help and support..
  12. ha ha.. no comparisons there.. just a clue.. anyway, here's my next q: This endurance race lasts half a day and is one of the ultimate reliability tests for any car. Audis and 935s rule this event. Porsche won the title this year after a long hiatus. Racing giants like Moss and Fangio have battled it out in this race in the 1950s. What is the race i am talking about?
  13. yes, its the veyron.. doesn't matter where i live.. EB stands for electricity board, as well as Ettore Bugatti, founder of the company.. even the bugatti logo has the words EB in it..
  14. no, its not a direct clue at all.. think laterally..
  15. I'll do the necessary: Q. A famous car sold 220 models recently. Which one is it? (Clue: it shares something with our electricity board;-) )
