ndia's flagship automobile show Auto Expo kicks off on February 5 with companies hoping that new models to be unveiled during the spectacle will help revive demand at a time when the sector is going through a prolonged slump.
The first two days of the expo to be held from February 5-11 have been reserved for media and entry for general public will open from February 7.
Unlike in the past, the 12th edition of Auto Expo has been split into two parts due to space constraints, with the motor show being held at Greater Noida and auto components exhibition at Pragati Maidan during February 5-11. There will be 70 new unveilings. Of these, 26 will be global models. A look at the biggest of these.
Jaguar Project 7
This car is based on the company's F-Type, though it brings back memories of Jaguar's glorious days in Le Mans due to its styling. That is why it is named after the number of times Jaguar has won the Le Mans 24-hour race. It comes with a powered folding-cloth top and is a two-seater sports car. It retains the F-Type's head and tail lights, grille, 20-inch wheels, but the front nose, rear diffuser and side skirts are new and made of carbon fibre.
