Whats the fuss all about ?
Whether or not in Mumbai ??? Answers simple -
This city is in the record books for a few wrong reasons , seam-bursting population being 1 of them.
For god's sake ,13 million people and an uber-loud AMG V12 wont go un-noticed for long in a city like Mumbai. Some patience will do it. This isnt some 'who spots and posts first' race is it now ?
Besides, from what iv noticed over time, Mumbai has more than its fair share of observers who seem to be constantly roaming around with cameras all day in the hope of catching an exotic.
If its here(Mumbai), itl be here (teambhp) ! ...soon ! 'Nuf said

I get the drift, but don’t be so sure about the “uber-loud” part. Despite being the successor of the almighty Zonda, the new boy in the Modena block isn’t half as shouty as its daddy.

Now it’s a biturbo V12, which means, like the Veyron, the dominating noise is the turbo whine and not the exhaust note. Sad.

don't get me wrong here brother but our very own dippy had spotted a veyron in mumbai - but didn't post the pictures because the owner asked him not to.

no one else seems to have spotted it yet - and i've not seen any pictures of it either. and since it was dippy - we can be sure that he knows what he is talking about

The car has been shipped out of our country and has already landed in Hong Kong. The car landed in Kowloon Bay and as suspected was only here to be shipped to another country.


Here is the link to the photo of the exact same car, with the plastic and all intact in the same places on the front of the car in Kowloon.

Alright. Not a pagani buff so didnt know that.
Surely its not invisible though ? Cant hide from searching eyes for long.

If our very own Dippy knew anything about it, i would have known by now. Trust me.
Can speak to him and get it verified but i dont need to.
My only point was - If its here not long before its spotted. THEN the rumors could be laid to rest.
Anyway someone just posted its not in the country anymore so thats settled i guess.
Just since you mention it. No one has spotted the Veyron to date as its simply not here

^What is really ridiculously funny is that, the owner of veyron, who bought the car solely to show off and nothing else, considering the usability of that car on indian roads, told the person, "Hey please don't post a picture of my car, coz i know ur from teambhp, i wanna keep it a secret affair" If he was really that discreet he wouldn't buy a veyron at the first place. :

Yes I clearly remember Dippy's comments of having seen the Veyron. I can search for it but I dont think I need to !

The Veyron scene is done n dusted but since its being talked about -
It might just be with the concerned fellow for sometime when it was here for promotions or whatever. It was never bought. End of story.

Where is dippy ?
Dippy yahaan hai, dippy wahaan hai. Dippy is everywhere !!
He is "THE" dippy ! He is amongst us ! He has eyes at places we can only imagine !
Dont kill me for this dipster !

Thought as much this would turn out this way. I had posted a couple of pages ago to actually CONFIRM it being bought by someone here.

Rosso Corsa please get your facts in place before starting a "Car in Mumbai" thread next time. There are people around who know when and if any exotic enters the country and who it belongs to as well thanks

Mods time to lock this thread
