    Generally my wife doesnt say anything when I drive fast or corner fast. But that day was insanity re-defined from my side.. Not sure, what speed I was doing tailing Ranjith closely. Every blind curve and even U turns were done at super high speeds which forced her to lose her cool on me.. but all in all, those 4kms of drive thru the ghats was super fun with FIAT just hugging the road as though it was running on rails.

    and Enki, those facts about FIAT CEO coming in a FIAT Abarth were cool actually. never knew that..

    More than 500 abarth, I am amazed the complements for Panda by Montezmolo. Mind it, the guy sells the most expensive cars world will ever see, the Prancing horse. He admires an "A" segment car among the cheapest available in Europe with open heart:confused:. It's one of the cheapest compact available in Europe.

    My wife says while turning in high speed in Ghats she gets nausea and fatigue. She open the window and let the fresh air to come inside. The low pressure , lack of oxygen and the humming noise of the engine brings uneasiness.

    Harmony continued at Munnar

    Here's a adventurous road which my Linea encountered recently at Munnar. I was not able to locate the resort (Glenmoor) and I called them. They came over to guide me. The driver came in a jeep and told me that we need to climb down 600 mts down hill to reach the resort. He also told that all cars can do that road. Only when I realized that there is some surprise is in store for me :). And yes, it was really a thrill drive.

    After the below junction, the Jeep took the downhill right side road and it just vanished from my sight in a matter of few seconds. Only then I realized how steep the road should be.

    Some shots of the adventurous road.

    Interestingly I did not scrape anywhere during downhill drive. But, while climbing up I scraped twice. I was again following the jeep where my wife and kid took a safe ride in it. My wife denied to sit in my Linea ( :confused) for that road and she preferred to sit in the jeep.
