The link was. Looks like it could be a cool car once the concept gets toned down. If anyone doesn't know about Tata then do some research or check out this video:

estimated price 25 to 30 lahk
aka 38k to 46k USD
Sure is a fair comparison!

Not exactly the prettiest sports car I've ever seen. Way too busy for my taste and I'm not sure if it's just the angle, but the proportions make the car look a bit too tall for its length.

I'm not sure but I'm fairly confident that @Cole's post was dripping with sarcasm.

Hmmm, a video game comparision is ridiculously informative. Especially a video game that's closer to the arcade side of things rather than simulation. But, you go Glenn Coco!

Put it up against the GRMN/GAZOO FT86 from Gran Turismo 28 and we'll see who laughs last

I was just thinking the information on the car was informative. Also, there is not a lot of rear/mid engine sports cars these days under 100k, so I appreciate the effort. +1 for a small displacement engine that is high reving, turbocharged in a light car too.

I didn't even wait for the head to head; my bad, sorry, didn't think you meant just the head to head.

I find head to head comparisons entertaining at best but rarely informative anyways. Don't you? Seems like they are always comparing apples to oranges in price, power delivery, weight or class, only to claim something is a few seconds faster on their track or 0.3 seconds faster to 60 then they will say the slower one is more fun. It is all entertaining and all, but a person can't determine happiness through a surrogate in some video and probably won't be happy buying a car only for it being the fastest by slim margins compared to others in its class.

Ill have to watch the video to know for sure but I'm guessing the comparison was to entertain, and mostly it was to capture the attention of buyers who like light weight, great handling sports cars. Considering this thread I would have to say success on their part.
