In India, the imported car buyers have to huge tax to own them. This is why the number of imported cars are much less compared to the cars that are made in India. Even then, the number of exotic and rare cars are increasing in the country and many people bring them to India through carnet, which allows them to operate on the Indian roads legally for a limited time. Which are the latest exotics that have been spotted in India? Well, here are five of them!
Dodge Challenger SRT
This Dodge Challenger SRT is from Dubai and was spotted in Mumbai recently. It is a true muscle car and is powered by three engine options. We are not sure about the engine that powers this version. The least powerful variant gets the 5.7-litre HEMI V8 engine that generates a maximum power of 375 Bhp. There is a more powerful 6.4-litre V8 engine that generates a maximum power of 485 Bhp. Both the engine options are petrol engines.
Shelby GT500 convertible
This is India’s first and only Shelby GT500 convertible. This car is located in Pune and there is not a second car on the roads like this one. This one looks beautiful and is well-maintained too. This car was first showcased in 2013 and is powered by a 5.8-litre V8 petrol engine that generates a maximum power of 662 Bhp and peak torque of massive 856 Nm. It can reach a top speed of 322 km/h and can do 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds.
Chevrolet Camaro SS Roadster
The Chevrolet Camaro is a rare breed in India and here is one convertible that is even rarer. This is the latest generation Camaro roadster and possibly only one in India. The car gets some aggressive design and with the complete black paint job, it looks even more macho.
The car is a Left Hand Drive, which means it can be registered in India. Chevrolet offers various engine options with 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 the most powerful 6.2-litre V8 engine that develops a maximum of 455 Bhp.
GMC Sierra GLE
This is a GMC Sierra GLE from UAE and it has been roaming around on the Mumbai roads on the Carnet. The massive black pick-up truck can dwarf any other vehicles on the Indian roads. This seems like a 2014 model that came powered by a 4.3-litre engine that generates a maximum power of 285 Bhp and peak torque of 413 Nm.
Dodge Ram 1500
This is also a unique car and belongs to the Gondal Royal family from Gujarat. This Dodge Ram is in a pristine condition and it seems like a 2000 model. It came powered by a 4.7-litre V8 engine that generates a maximum power of 238 Bhp. This car is rarely seen on roads.
