Photo Quiz on BMTC Volvo : Try this

Here’s a quick quiz for you. Have a close look at the image below: It is the image of Volvo B7RLE transit buses and this image taken from BMTC (Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation) Website [Check this link to see the image on their website]


There’s something unusual in the image (With reference to the bus and BMTC). Figure it out and write a comment with your answer.

Update:
The Bangalorean (has an empty profile hence not linking)and Logesh were the first to respond with correct answer. Thanks to them.

Answer:
BMTC has used image of the bus it doesn't own. The above photo is of a bus used in left hand drive countries and not India. I guess BMTC took this photo from a presentation VOLVO salesmen gave or from somewhere else.

Major Update, 12th Dec 2007 PlanMad has made a serious observation in his comment, wherein he says
"Guess what, all you guys are wrong. If you notice the volvo logo in the front, the diagonal stripe is in the wrong direction. It should actually be from the top right to the bottom left, not the other way round.

This means that the image has been horizontally flipped. This is indeed the BMTC volvo from the roads of bangalore
"
Volvo City bus, Bangalore
That was out of the box thinking-I flipped the image horizontally and you can see the flipped image here.

The bus is designed for countries where driving is on the right side of the road. The BMTC buses have their right side sealed and boarding is on the left side.

Brilliant!
Thanks Bangalorean and Logesh for the quick response and for getting it right...

I believe BMTC used the photo which Volvo sales man would have used in some sales presentation...

This is not the bus BMTC owns. They just got the wrong photo from somewhere...

THE FRONT DOOR IS UNUSUAL.
BCOZ DOOR IS SUPPOSED TO BE ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE DRIVER INSTEAD OF RIGHT SIDE
I WILL BE WAITING FOR THE PRIZE
