We have big dreams, great enthusiasm and an immense determination to make an offroader that can beat the toughest of the terrain. And no, we are not German Engineers with state-of-the-art labs and millions of Euros at our disposal.
We are Baja SAE IIT Delhi, Team Xpeeds, a team of dedicated undergraduates drawn from varying disciplines of engineering from Computer Science to Civil Engineering and from Mechanical to Textile Engineering.
Ever since the establishment of Baja SAE IIT Delhi in 2004 by a group of dedicated automobile enthusiasts, there has been no turning back. The team has been going from strength to strength, winning accolades in each field of its activity.
The rugged, lightweight, single seater buggy has been built on a shoestring budget of 300,000 Rupees only (~$5300).
