The Indian Auto Expo is like a festival for auto enthusiasts. The only problem with it is, unlike other festivals, it makes an appearance only once in two years. The Expo features several cars from every possible category. There are entry-level hatches, sedans, luxury sedans, SUVs, flagship sedans and concept cars, and then there are performance cars. The ones which feature in everyone's fantasies and makes them drool. These machines crossover to triple digits faster than you open your eyes after waking up in the morning. Here is a list of the 5 fastest production cars on display at the Auto Expo.
