AD Jayaram prepared well over a hundred different cars, but it is the Jayaram GT that was prepared with unmatched levels of time, energy and passion. It cost him a little over Rs 20,000, in those days, to build a car that you really can’t put a price on today. And it is the only car in Bobby’s garage that has (and always will) remained as it was.
The Jayaram GT stands among a fleet of Bobby’s zany creations, like a 300 bhp, 500 kg Dolphin, a rally-spec Esteem with a full-blown 1500cc Baleno engine, the turbocharged Civic and a Hayabusa-engined Reva! And while Bobby is on a constant quest for more speed and power in all the other cars, this second-generation Jayaram has vowed that there will be no changes made to the Jayaram GT. I hear an almost inaudible 'Yet,' soon after Bobby says this. It’s Sharan, who mutters something about plonking a V8 under the hood. Reckon we’ve got to watch out for the third generation Jayaram as well!
