    Dear romsi_rk,
    THANKS, you are perhaps the first one to comment on the name, Snow Leopard. This name was proposed one and a half year earlier. Since then I was in the hunt and when you get your hunt after a tiresome search, it must be some thing very rare (specie)... so the name of a rare-specie of wild cat that lives in snowy high altitudes of Himalayan range, even in war zone of Kargil (snow leopard was recently spoted in snow mountains of Kargil).
    Definitely, more pictures will follow.
    Take care and drive safe.
    SHAH,SA

    Yes, I don't know whether the compressor is working or not (joking), that is why I expect my Jet to let me forget about the fuel price. I always let my SNOW LEOPARD drink full stomach and leap forward.

    Have you had a chance to unleash all the power of the Jet? How was the experience.

    A few high rpm runs wouldn't hurt during initial ownership (touch n go).

    Regards

    Dear Gurjinder,
    Nice to hear from you.
    No, still I'm being gentle to my Snow-Leopard, though I can feel what it is capable of. Our roads also don't permit (no express way type) to tame such a beast to let it sweat and breath hot.
    I've visited my country side home twice on weekends, averaging about 12.6 Kms/L. with showing IC as 35Kms/L as well. It is wonderful to see IC as 50Kms/L when leaving it move in 5th gear at 80Kms/h not pressing the accelerator.
    O, yes ! while over taking it shows it's real worth. This is what I was yearning for. Overtaking is a bliss now, can see any damn vehicle through my rear-mirror vanish as if they are melting away.
    See you.
    SHAH,SA

    Dear speedJet,
    In fact I was away from my laptop+internet for some time due to personal reasons.
    I'll be updating you friends with my detailed experiences riding SnowLeopard.
    I don't know, whether I term it as a "romance with the Italian beauty" or "reining the powerful Leopard", there are both the delicacy and toughness to handle with.
    I'll be posting full details next time.
    Thanks,
    S A SHAH

    Thanks, Shikhar and ABHINAV
    It is really a wonderfull car. I was in it's hunt for past two years and finally got my hunt after a long search, it is a valuable hunt for me..... have really done some thing good for my self being enjoyable at any time, be it busy city or rushing highway. It stands tall at any place, even while parking is neighbour's envy.
    Detailed report will follow soon.
