    It's clearly a Renault Duster - I was talking about the roads.

    "The arrival of the facelifted Duster (in 2015) coincided with a move of production facility. Initially, Dusters sold in South Africa were built in India, but as of the introduction of the revamped version, production shifted to a plant in Romania."

    Perhaps some models are still sourced from India?

    I watch a lot of Indian 4x4 vids on YT and it appears that the Bolero is the work horse of India and a very impressive one too.

    Wow there is no way i would have attempted that corner at .22. Worked out for them, but also their lives could have been over in a few seconds.

    I would not want to do that first. The water needs only to be a little deeper and then you are going with the water and not where you wish. Its easy once you've seen someone else do it but how to know how deep the ruts were under all that flowing water.

    Definately a risk.

    Hard to know if the driver is super experienced, drives it every day, and knows it exactly. Or, other scenario, blissfully unaware, with no clue how close he was to death.

    Looked like he had a good few passengers, perhaps he's a regular on that route and also has the usual Indian approach of how if it's your destiny to go over the edge you'll go but if not you're fine. I did notice the missing railing so guess someone else's destiny wasn't so fortunate.

    Taking your word for it - I'm amazed that Renault can sell a product of theirs as a Nissan!!
