This time though we did it all without anyone from our team getting slightly mutilated. No one got run over. No photographer got hit by tree branches. No reviewer got stuck in a dealership washroom. All this happened before but no one speaks about it because we keep everything hush with bribes of free octane.
This year, people just put on weight because for one of our test drives, we bought pizzas. Lots of pizzas. And we ate it all in the name of science. All because we are very 'sciency'.
Can't believe it took this long to get another magazine out though. Much like the 0-100kmph times of a Tata Nano. But it happened. And we have a treat for you.
But not pizza.
Because we ate all of it.
