Default Phaeton ,Cayenne and SLK 230..me and my Corsa

hey guys
at 3 PM today ..i ,me and the corsa found themselves in the midst of a "chase" ..
i had just paid at the toll ...was not in a mood to floor it on the toll ..(since i realised that i had forgotten to ask the toll collecter dude "aaj speed check to nahi hai na? ")..anyways shifting up from 2nd to 3rd ..i notice a big sedan on my left rear view ..ahh well shift to 4th...first thought was a Superb ..saw it getting bigger in my rear view as it changed lanes ..*muted my car stereo* told myself wow its definately a passat VW badge looked clearer .."nope " the car had picked up immense pace ..."woah *** ..cayenne "( suddenly appears in my left view mirror as the VW roars past...OMG its a Phaeton ( huge huge huge dark Blue )
"holy shssss !" ...the cayenne passes me from the left ...all this happens in like 3 secs ...pretty much sandwiched for an instance ,i get off the gas ..trying to compose myself ..i look at my rear view again i see a merc .."no chance am letting this baby go!" ....4th down to 3rd i floor it ...
the SLK 230 still passes by calmly ...hitting 120 i am much closer ..notice the Number RJ** 34 ... looking ahead i found both of us closing in to the other 2 cars the phaeton and the cayenne ...15 -20 feet behind the SLK ..the driver floored it ..(saw the car dip a bit towards the rear and front lift up) ...
..guys sorry but i was in 2 minds wether to chase them (how long to chase them) and thinking my car aint upto ...in the midst of such a discussion with myself i hit the limiter at 3rd .."thats it dude am not ruining my ride! "...shift to 5th ...

no point even trying i could see the phaeton disappear beyond the curve followed by the cayenne ,SLK was doing close to 170(no speedo error there !)...but a sight worth remembering ...
...stupidos in broad day light hitting high speeds in high class cars ...

by the way ...i saw a Phaeton for the first time in my life !!! surely was a treat !

It sure is. I never saw one in the UK unless I mistook it for a Passat. Engineering-wise it is a brilliant car - but they stretched the brand too far

Ya you are right pal but if compared its way behind mumbai but slowly and surely they are increasing and yup i forgot to mention that few weeks ago i also saw a silver VW Touarag , was looking fabulous i must say, it could really give a serious run for the money to the Cayanne ....
