While there are several vehicles that are flooding the Indian streets, there are a few that are so rare, that they are indeed one in a million. From swanky antiques to roadsters worth crores, here are 5 rare imported cars; we bet you didn’t know existed in India. So without further ado, let’s get started!
The first production vehicle to get disc brakes and hydropneumatic suspension, the Citroen DS was also the first official car for the then French president. In fact, legend has it, that President Charles de Gaulle had actually survived an assassination attempt thanks to the DS’s performance. Located in Hyderabad, the 1971 DS21 Pallas is probably the only one in India. The Pallas is the luxurious trim of the DS and is super rare to find in 2021.
Dodge Viper RT/10
Probably India’s only Dodge Viper RT/10, this is one mean machine powered by a massive 8.4-litre engine. Initially spotted in a shade of black, the vehicle was parked in a Garage alongside the Diablo VT. A few years later, the vehicle changed owners and got a whole new paint job, only to be moved to Gujarat, to be part of a new exotic collection.
Honda DC5 Integra Type R
Living most of its life under the shadow of the DC2, the DC5 Integra Type R is often crowned to be the fastest production front-wheel-drive money could buy back in 2001, when it was first launched. Having a 2.0L engine producing around 220 BHP, the vehicle could hit speeds of up to 241 km/h. The DC5 was the last Integra Type-R to be built and is one of the rarest imported cars in India.
Known to be an iconic SUV in the international markets, the Cadillac Escalade is rare to sight SUV in India. The one showed above, however, is a Carnet import and is a left-hand drive vehicle. The Escalade is powered by a massive 6.2-litre V8 engine that churns out 420 Bhp of sheer power and 624 Nm of peak torque.
When Chevrolet exited from the Indian market, so did the plans of the Camaro coming to India. Competing against the iconic Mustang internationally, the Camaro was never built to be a right-hand drive. In its LHD glory, however, the Camaro ZL1 can be found in Chennai. Powered by a 6.2-litre supercharged V8 engine putting out a massive 580 Bhp of power, the Camaro is surely one of the rarest imported vehicles in India.
So these were 5 super rare imported cars in India that are too difficult to spot. If you are aware of any such vehicles, comment down below so that we can curate a Part 2 for you. Till then stay pinned!
