About me

Anything that has an engine, and moves on wheels, Swapnil has his heart to it. With a master's degree in journalism and a knack for cars, Swapnil scrutinizes and judges the ride on each and every aspect. His passion for cars fired up in the Great Plains of North Texas where his first drive used to be an old Subaru. He grew up watching the Grand Prix and collecting scale models of cars. His focal interest lies with the muscles and is our go-to man for that. He currently drives a 2017 Camaro SS and plans to soon own the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. Swapnil is a complete Schumacher Patriot and lives by the quote “Once something is a passion, the motivation is there”. His favorite cars include the Dodge Charger, Dodge Challenger, Chevy Camaro line-up and of course the whole Mustang legacy. As our car columnist, his days are spent racing Corvettes and Camaros and Dodges and trading the track tales with the team. His lively attitude and the amount of energy he brings to the team is impeccabl
