Word has been going around about the $2,500 car, and here it is. The 9th Auto expo in New Delhi India featured the "1-Lakh" by Tata Motors, which will see production in India later this year. Given the nickname NANO the little guy will feature an all-aluminum, two-cylinder engine that can deliver around 54 US miles per gallon. They say you can squeeze (Literally) five people in it, but looks more like you and your significant other. The homies might have to catch the bus, or roll one at a time. The downside is you get $2,500 worth of mental protecting you, and the manual actually states and I quote "Please re-frame from placing 17' 18' or 20' inch rims on the car" real talk.
