Hey guys ,This is a 2006 Toyota Landcruiser Prado VX. Initially we were supposed to get the Mercedes E280 CDi ,but due to the ingress and egress this suv was purchased. Back in 2006 i get a call from mom:
mom: we bought a new van,
me: which which?
she: some toyota
me: is it innova
she: no some prada or prado
me: wow is it a petrol or diesel
She: i dont know the details ask the driver and hands over the phone
Driver: namaskar saab
me: is it a petrol, how many cylinders,bhp,etc etc etc
He: petrol gaadi ,no idea about the other stuff and it gives 5kmpl mileage.
ME: give the phone to mom,i ask mom is it fast ,
She: you will crash it in 5 minutes, its soo fast
Me: can you send it over to bangalore,i need to visit bandipur and go offroading
She: its a new car,and in your hands, in the jungle only the tyre will be left of the car.
I go to Hyderabad after 4 months ,huff it looks awesome, brand new, sit inside and start the engine, slot it in. D
Rummm...,takes off like a jet, awesome power, went right up to 180km in no time, even when floored at 130km you hit back to the seat. It handles slightly better to innova thats it. Brakes are good but after 120 you need a experienced hand to control this beast. After mastering the scorpio this was a piece of cake to me .
