Its when you come down onto Peddar road from Altamount road.

I also spotted a Maroon Arnage today but could not get pictures of it. The car pictures have been posted before.

Precisely, as I live on Altamount (when in Bombay that is) and have seen this white GTC numerous times around Kemps Corner.

Nice find Speedy!

I feel that in any convertible the canvas top spoils its style. Why can't they accept foldable hard which was introduced first in SLK way back in 1996. Its no more an expensive technology!

In a convertible, the car is designed to be driven with the top down, If you dont want to do that you might as well buy a hardtop. The canvas tops are perfect for the convertibles. The hardtop convertibles some what spoil the look of the car with their metal lines seen when the top is on. IMO they are stuck in the middle, sort of confused as to what they are. A convertible or a hardtop.

Hard tops look like a metal mess.Instead the normal rag is much better in terms of looks.And as said above doesnt show all the lines.Plus I feel the canvas adds to the beauty of the car.Cant imagine a Bentley GTC with a hard top
