    I am personally waiting to for the new Lauretta. Though i loved the looks of Rapid, but i hear its launch will be delayed and even better is MachineL, which is a direct pick from the recent Frankfurt Auto Show. It is rumored to get launched by the year end, but i am sure it will be way beyond my budget, but i really have high hopes from Lauretta, i hope it surprises me and convinces me to go for it.
