PixeL- Is It Designed in INDIA?

Saw this at rediff.com today.

Last gr8 media hype car from Tata was designed by I.D.E.A. I am sure this car also is not designed in India.

I am highly impressed by the managing director and group CEO of Tata Motors — Mr. Carl Peter Forster.

Mr. Carl Peter Forster

Mr. Carl is a UK born German Businessman. I am highly impressed by his career profile found at Wikipedia.

  • 1982 — Joined Mc Kinsey as a consultant in Munich
  • 1986 — Joined BMW
  • 2001 — Appointed CHAIRMAN & MD of Adam Opel AG
  • 2004 — Appointed President of GM Group & Chairman of OPEL & Chairman of SAAB
  • 2006 — Group Vice President of General Motors & Member of GM Automotive Strategy Board
  • 2010 — Group CEO with overall responsibility for Tata Motors Globally including British Unit Jaguar & Land Rover

Salute You!!

[update]

The brand TATA sucks big time… they sell salt, tea & whole lot of other stuff which no international brand would do. And Sir Mr. Forster, looking at your class and royal history — the history of association with brands that are gold, I really believe that you took a bad decision in accepting the position at TATA Motors. Rolls Royce or Ferrari would have been a better option and I am sure they would give you a red carpet welcome.

I don’t have a car and I do walk to work & I do really have a taste for cars and I have had made many wallpapers of it.

My favorite car is Alfa Romeo. Which is yours?
