Oh.. sorry about the wrong ID ! I had not managed to see the badge on that one in the traffic. Somehow ended up googling for XC40 , and thought it to be the same.

A good write up comparing the Volvo V40 cross country and the newly launched A class, appears in the July issue of What Car Magazine? are they really comparable (besides their individual price-points)? the V40 is definitely a looker.

Have been seeing Minis continuously since Sunday afternoon. A White Cooper S in KP, a Grey with White roof in Wanowrie on Sunday night & again on monday night at NIBM Junction. Looks like its raining Minis in Pune. Also crossed a white 6 series at Blue Nile junction with its top down. Beautiful !

Guys some help needed here. Spotted a Silver Mercedes Convertible this morning near Bishop's School junction in Camp. Now I am unable to guess the model name but felt like a SLK but with twin round headlights similar to the SLR. It had KA-03 registration & was being driven by a young guy, probably in his late twenties / early thirties with an elderly gentleman in the Co-driver's seat. The top was down revealing the Black interiors.

What you saw might have been a A209 CLK Cabriolet, which has now evolved into the swanky A207 Series as the E Class Cabriolet. It strongly resembles the W212 family, as well as share fair amount of components, but interestingly is still a W204 C Class underneath.

Here is India's first facelifted E63 AMG delivered a couple of days after the India launch.

OT- I am told that the owner filed a stalking case against a few guys who tried to click the car.

Spotted these two beauties at JW Marriott, a while ago.

The RR:

Is this an actual //M? Or was it just badging?
The alloys seem to be from the M.

True! These two beauties were so awe inspiring (especially the RR) that we completely neglected the other cars parked there .

The parking lot looked like a BMW showroom to me.
6 series, 3 series, 5 series, 7 series!! The only one missing was 1 series!
Oh, and that odd A class, that I missed entirely!
