The Indian car market is becoming quite interesting with the slew of privately imported exotic vehicles. While many Non-Resident Indians bring their rides on carnet to Indian shores, many others privately import them to register in India. Here are five such new and exciting exotic cars.
Chevrolet Camaro SS
Chevrolet is known for its range of muscle cars in the international markets and there are many religious followers of the brand. Here is a Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe that has come to the Indian roads through carnet. The Middle-Eastern registered vehicle gets an eye-catchy body colour.
The hood on the vehicle is also aftermarket and adds extra muscles to the already powerful looking car. The Chevrolet Camaro SS draws power from a 6.2-litre V8 petrol engine that generates a maximum of 455 Bhp and 617 Nm.
The Escalade is one of the most privately imported SUVs in India and it looks humongous. Here is a new Escalade that belongs to a Bangalore garage. The exotic SUV is registered in India, which means it has been modified to change the Left-Hand Drive layout to Right-Hand Drive. The Escalade is only available in the LHD option.
The massive SUV gets power from a 6.2-litre V8 engine that churns out a maximum power of 420 Bhp and a peak torque of 624 Nm. It is quite popular in its domestic US market and is even used by the President of the nation.
Nissan Patrol NISMO
The Nissan Patrol is known as an extremely capable SUV. Nissan even showcased the SUV in India officially a few years back, but due to high taxes on imports, the vehicle was never launched. Here is a high-performance NISMO version of the Patrol that looks very aggressive.
The vehicle gets a blacked-out grille and a body kit that includes aggressive front and rear bumpers and side skirts. The massive SUV also gets red highlights all over the body giving it a classy look. It is powered by a 5.6-litre V8 petrol engine that generates 428 Bhp, which is 28 Bhp more than the regular version of the vehicle.
Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible
Even though the Mustang is available in India, Ford only offers the coupe model of the vehicle on the Indian market. Here is a Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible from Delhi and its all-black theme gives it an aggressive look. This could be the only Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible that has been registered in India. The Camaro SS convertible draws power from a 6.2-litre V8 engine that develops a maximum power of 455 Bhp and a peak torque of 617 Nm.
Lexus has officially entered India but they only offer SUVs and sedans right now. Here is an RC-F 350 from Kochi and is one of the two RC-Fs on the Indian market. The RC-F is a 2-door coupe that rivals the BMW M4 globally.
The car is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine that churns out a maximum power of 461 Bhp and peak torque of 530 Nm. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission which can take the vehicle from 0-100 km/h in just 4.4 seconds.
