Yep. I had a meeting with the dealer 2 days ago regarding the delivery of my 09 LP and by chance this topic of the LP owners in India came up and he specifically said that there were 2 yellow LP's in mumbai (coupe only) .. So if any one does have a roadster in India, it would not have been imported by the Delhi dealer as he confirmed that no roadster order has been issued by him thus far.

Ive heard there is a 2007 LP640,yellow with less than 1000kms on the odo for sale.This car was bought officially from the lambo delhi dealer. The owner is expecting 3.25cr. he paid close to 3.75 for it.

That is a steep price indeed .. I ordered my 09 LP fully loaded with all options for 3.35 (with the 09 changes). So, if the mumbai owner got the car shipped and delivered in mumbai and paid all the road taxes and all, only then would the 3.75 price tag for him be justified. But good to know that India has reached the economic position that people have fun in their respective hyper cars and sell them off, like is the case in Western countries.

Btw, I wonder what the owner would be buying next.. Veyron, Koenig, Pagani, Ascari any one!
*Cheers* to the owner.

Spotted this one and was tailing it all the way from Heera Panna upto the end of Marine Drive, on the day the Ferrari rally was flagged off from the Taj. Was on my way there, actually. Claimed to be a Mansory GT63. And the exhausts look terrible but MAN you should have heard that sound !!

Pictures aren't exactly A1 quality, but i've uploaded the ones (of many that I clicked) which I feel will highlight the most detail of the car. And one, solely for catching the driver on the wrong side of the road

....and since I can't resist saying this, IMO the chrome surrounding the front grill, and the colour, are crap. But a Bentley is a Bentley.

I've seen the same car from Taj Mahal Hotel along with Dr.Mallya's red Flying Spur, when I visited Mumbai last time..Unfortunetly it was during that visit my cam-phone was lost...I've snaped both cars that time...

Absolutely. It really cheapens the overall look. And the Pune bit, yeah I should have figured from the licence plate. Could you give me a link? I cant find the "other thread". Sorry and thanks.

Bentley GTC you mean. Rolls Royce makes the DHC. A white one now, is it a new find?

More pictures of the "common red bentley in mumbai". Just got them a couple of hours back. I can never get bored of clicking that car. Inspired my username after all (this very car, the first time I sat in it) !!

Nice shots there FlyingSpur. The blue one looks really beautiful. I've seen a white and a pista green one in Blore but this shade of blue just moves me. In the flesh it would look mucho better i'm sure.

please educate me on what is the mansory GT63? Is it a souped up version?

Google it. I'm sorry I don't know in detail about the Mansory/Mulliner options on the Bentleys. Mulliner is in-house form Bentley while Mansory is after-market of sorts, I think. It isn't souped up really, I doubt it. These things are basically with an option here or an option there to make it exclusive, apparently. I hate the chrome grille.
