Bugatti Veyron to Tesla Model X: Super RARE cars in India caught on video

The Indian road conditions do not exactly support the exotic low-slung cars, which is why most manufacturers modify the ground clearance when the international cars are launched in India. However, there are many exotic cars on the Indian roads that have been imported privately by the enthusiasts. Here are such exotic cars that have been captured on video in India.

Bugatti Veyron

Bugatti came knocking on the Indian automotive market’s door but found no buyer. This video is from 2010 when Bugatti got the car to officially showcase the car in India and give test drives to the prospective customers. There were not many race tracks in the country back then and the drives happened on the public roads. You can clearly see the Veyron struggling on the speed breakers.

The Veyron was produced in a limited number and there is not a single one in the country right now. The hypercar is powered by a massive 8.0-litre W12 engine that produces a maximum of 1001 Bhp and 1,250 Nm of peak torque. It can hit a top speed of 407 km/h, which is electronically limited due to the tyres of the vehicles.

McLaren 720S

The McLarens suddenly appeared in the Indian automotive scenario and there is a handful of them in the country now. However, they are still very rare in India, especially the 720S. The video shows India’s first ever McLaren which came here from Dubai through carnet. It belongs to a popular garage in Bengaluru and was spotted on the roads often.

The McLaren 720S is a track-focused sports car and is powered by a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 petrol engine. It generates a maximum of 710 Bhp and 770 Nm of peak torque. There are only 400 examples of the 720S around the world.

Corvette C6

The American muscle car market is known for cars like Corvette. It is an iconic car and the particular C6 model is rare around the world. The black-coloured C6 belongs to a Mumbai garage and is in perfect condition. It has been modified with smoked headlamps to make it look even more aggressive. The Corvette C6 is powered by a massive 6.2-litre V8 engine that generates a maximum of 430 Bhp and 575 Nm.

Dodge Challenger SXT Plus

Dodge is another common name in the American muscle car industry. This particular SXT Plus variant is the only one present on the Indian roads and is spotted regularly on during the weekends in Mumbai. The muscle car draws power from a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 engine that produces a maximum of 305 Bhp and 363 Nm of peak torque.

Tesla Model X

The Tesla Model X has become extremely popular car and disrupted the electric car segment because of the state-of-the-art features including semi-automatic driving. This three-row 7-seater SUV costs around Rs. 2 crores on the Indian roads because of the high import taxes. The Tesla Model X is powered by two separate electric motors that generate 255 Bhp for the front wheels and 496 Bhp for the rear wheels. Together, the total output is 496 Bhp and the peak torque is 967 Nm.

Chevrolet Camaro roadster

The Chevrolet Camaro would have the perfect challenger of Ford Mustang but the brand left India due to the high amount of losses. This is the latest generation Camaro roadster and possibly only one of the few with an Indian registration number on it. The steering set-up has been mirrored to make it legal for registration in India. Chevrolet offers various engine options with the Camaro. We are not sure which this one uses. To start with there is a 2.0-litre 275 Bhp engine, then there is a 3.6-litre V6 engine that churns out a maximum of 335 Bhp and then there is the most powerful 6.2-litre V8 engine that develops a maximum of 455 Bhp.
