Hey speedy,
Mr. A. Poonawala has a Mansory kit on his blue GTC, though the time of this photo ( in Pune festival rally 2007 ), the car only had a Mansory Spoiler, and wheels ( i dont remember )

This car has been posted before by FlyingSpur in the exotic taxi's in India thread. It is from Bandra.
Arre bhai, the wheels also are identical and even this car had less air in its front right tyre, thats why i said it looked identical.

Dude, I think Cyrus' car is different. It bears white plates, although the reg. no. is very similar.

Adars car has the Mansory kit i have seen it a couple of times. I find it only sounding good, nothing else.
Yohaan i knew of owning the Flying spur but i thought he would leave this alone. The car looks Hideous atleast in the pictures.

@ Flying spur both cars are bear the registration 10. i think it is the same car.

I thought the FS I clicked had an 18. It's not very clear in my pic, even if not blanked out. But another thing, even if the number is same, in Cyrus' pics it has white plates, while in mine it had yellow plates. Thats why I was wondering...

No. Bhosale's car is bluish silver. Looks a lot better than this blue one. And there might be another GTC ( white one ) in Pune - but I am not really sure.
So the total count of GTC is 2 - might go to 3 - in Pune.

Ya, that was one good wedding. I took the photos outside my cousins house. This was their 'marriage car' borrowed from a good friend of theirs.

Sigh...wish i had friends like theirs

Another one !! Spotted a Flying Spur at Colaba behind the Taj today evening. Mumbai regn, fancy number, and lovely choice of colour although I didn't much like the interior leather/veneer combinations. Stately, royal and the usual. My favourite . Picture quality is poor, partly due to my stupidity and partly due to the phone cam.
