Smile Spotted Holden Commodore V6 in Delhi

Was driving on Shanti path when I saw this car. Just speed up and alongside it. Looks great in the flesh. Had a flag rod though. Australian embassy's my guess. Had a CD numberplate. Anyone else seen it?

Shanti Path...the land of International diplomats, with their diplomatic Holdens (lol). Must look pretty good in the flesh. Heck, there's atleast ONE of many of the current, modern, worldwide cars in India.

Find me the High Commissioner of Turkmenistan in an M5 or a Murcielago Roadster, and I will lick your feet.

If you are talking specific to diplomats, i think there are VW Phaetons and Touaregs used by the diplomats in Delhi.

I was only playing. Yes, diplomats tend to be in Phaetons, S-Classes and certain other imports.

Monaro's are gorgeous. I saw one the other day in deep red, here in London. The grunt that 5.7L V8 produces is nothing short of beastly.
