I don't think it was on the road at all. You can see the number plate from the country of origin.

Edit: Rumour Incorrect, check canonball's post below.

This car was up for sale by the Indian partner of a UK national who brought it down was advertised in the autocar classified in the first year of publication...2003? I spoke to the guy who was wanting to sell it wanted Rs. 25 lacs and would clear it/get it out of customs...had been lying there for 2 or 3 years already...the UK national and the Indian partner wanted to do some hospitality bus in GOA so got the car prepped for India (was going to be their car to get around!!) before shipping it out....straight6 when did you take these pic? I am very keen on it...anyway of getting out of customes/buying it from them? cheers



I was sent pics of the car in the customs warehouse there were a Jaguar and some older merc as well

i have no interest in the Porsche canonball, be my guest for it. The 500sec has brought a smile to my face. i see number 7 and a older brother to my other car in it.
Yes they would be sold by the Goa customs, i shall find out if the cars are still there.

@ Straight6 thank you for the information and your help.

Ah, ok. The 30 lakhs is for the 911 and not the Merc. Didn't ask about the Merc. Unless, my cousin did.
