”What’s behind you doesn’t matter”- Enzo Ferrari

About me

Kiran is a relatively naive person in every aspect other than cars. As per him a vehicle is a living being with a soul. Ever since he was a toddler, he was fascinated with cars, so much so that when his mom feeds him, he’ll only open his mouth when he saw the picture of a car. Thanks to this he was a fluffy kid. Fast forward 20 years with his passion still intact, he graduated with a degree in automobile engineering. He saw CarIndigo as a portal to express his feelings about cars. His fetish towards Italian craftsmanship is well known amongst us. He manages to run his errands with a Ford focus RS. Very much unsatisfied in not owning an Italian marque, his hopes and dreams still stand very high.
