It is dashing in looks and speed.
MEMORABLE MOMENT WITH THE MACHINE
There are lots of memories but the most memorable are the early ones. Driving up to Hattiban on the dirt road, when I had just started driving. It was fun and challenging at the same time to drive through every turn, which was equally steep and sharp. The car used to go back and it felt like it would go off the edge. However, today, it is a smooth gradient.
If you can drive on the streets of Kathmandu, you can not only drive anywhere in the world but you also get automatic physiological mind reading capabilities. With so many otorcycles, children, trucks, micro buses et cetera sharing the same road, it challenges your driving skills every day. This actually polishes your sixth sense and keeps you on high alert.
Regular check-up and easy driving.

MY DREAM CAR
