True, but few points that I stated made the car a bit W&W. No offense dude :-)

Saw this M800 at Aundh, Pune.
What was even more hilarious, was the message on the spoiler
"I don't like people driving fast so I overtake them"

Whom was he contesting, auto rickshaws?

This car from first two images appeared from nowhere, zipped past me at break neck speed on Hassan Road on 13th Aug, The guy was a maniac driving as if earth was cracking behind him, overtaking everything on his path with aplomb. Privilege to meet at a Dhaba for Lunch.

Below images at two different times today close to Dell, IRR
The second image, a Honda City, seems the lady on the seat is using the windshield to dry towels. Wonder if the RVM is used for vanity purpose.

The Third image today, the line you see on the number plate is a Telephone cable and the arrow which you see on the bumper is a printed sticker, probably indicating a missile launch location.

I think I've seen this Esteem in Koramangala, near Jyothi Nivas College. To me it looked like a race spec car. The rear seats were removed, and it had a lot of stickers usually seen on race cars - driver's and navigator's name, their blood groups, some racing numbers, etc, on the doors and hood. The telephone cable probably might be some temporary restraint for an otherwise loose bumper that might get dragged on the road. The arrow is pointing to a tow-hook sort of thing under the bumper, if my eyes see it right. Quite possible there's something of that sort there, because it makes pulling the car out easier.

The Esteem seems to be a race spec car, the roll cage makes it quite evident. The cable might be for holding the bumper which might have broken off and to prevent it from dangling around.
The arrow stickers are I guess mandatory for race cars to allow them to be hooked to towing vehicles.

Silversteed also gave the same reasoning

Did it ever occur to you that the cloth most probably fell on the car where it was parked or when she / he was driving??? This is a thread for weird and wacky mod jobs, and I see neither in this pic.

And in the last pic, it is a rally spec Esteem. The arrow (this is not a fancy add on sticker, but a requirement) is actually a Tow indicator.

How that cloth got there is for the driver to find out, though this Picture does not qualify for WW thread, I thought it can be passed on along with other WW images taken during a single travel. I am sure during the course of my exploration of this forum I will find an appropriate thread.

Thank you guys for sharing your knowledge on this being a racing car, for I will distinguish when I see one next time.

Let me take the honor to present the next generation camouflaged bike "ROCK". The question being "Why is it camouflaged ?"
The second pic is of a Special edition Scorpio "sportz", I do not know know if this was really a special edition model available or it's custom-made

Has anyone seen this before. Spotted on the Ring road , Delhi. The colour scheme looked good to an extent , No offence intended but but the extra lights looked more like rocket launchers .

Here's one interesting position for the spoiler. Maybe he wants to ensure there is lower drag when the carrier is loaded!
