CSS on “Fast and Furious” lanes!
CSS Group’s Automobile Logistics wing had yet another opportunity to undertake an across-the-ocean shipment of a luxury vehicle to Kerala, India. This time it was to transport the luxury sports car Toyota Supra 2022 from Dubai port to Kochi. The Toyota Supra is a car with a 335-horsepower inline six-cylinder turbocharged engine that is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. The orange 1993 Supra driven by the late Paul Walker in the original ‘Fast and Furious’ movie sparks a love for this Toyota model amongst the millennials.
