There was another blue but down south. Blue with blue top did not belong to a builder it was our ex family car.

Black Series Coupe ? How sure are you ? With just 800 made worldwide and a handful of them in RHD, I'm a bit skeptical. Did it have the aero package ? (huge spoiler). If not, it'll be a privately imported C63 AMG Coupe.

Spotted this GT near Nashik phata area. Also saw another GT in Bluish shade near Koregaon Park and a brown Panamera & white Cayenne in Pune camp.

You must have seen the matte black wrapped(?) C63 sedan that does the rounds.

The once-blue-then-white pre facelift Gallardo got a makeover.

Includes a new shade and a LP550 kit and headlamps.

IMO, the shade would've looked better if it were a bit more dark.

Passed by a brand new Maroon / Cherry colored R R Evoque last night just outside the Police Commissioner's office. It came from the opposite direction. Had Temporary registration. Beautiful car!

As much as I loved the original Blu Caelum shade, I appreciate the owner's courage to go for this shade. I've seen the car when it was white and I can say this is definitely better and yes, it is an official Lambo shade called Celeste Phoebe.

Now a set of Cordelias should complete the look, a la Tila Tequila's LP560.

Well I am not sure about the rear spoiler. Dont remember clearly. It was satin black. IMO that colour is only available in the Black Edition. And it had black alloy wheels. Red calipers.

Been spotting a white 5 Series with loads of M goodies around deccan. At first glance, I thought it was a real M5, but a quick look at the rear to check if it has quad exhausts confirmed that it wasn't.

That precisely is the matte black wrapped C63 AMG saloon you spotted. It has black alloys and red calipers as you said. And AFAIK it belongs to the Merc dealer.

Agreed. The shade looks great indeed, and Cords would complete it. But still, I personally would pick Blu Caelum over this. And I am told that the white shade looked thin, flaky and cheap by people who saw it in person, true?

And a question for the Lambo people, is this makeover done by third party or the Lambo people themselves? Are parts/panels available for such makeovers from Lambo? And yeah, the exhausts looks pretty much tacky.

I highly doubt the headlamps is a third party job, the craftsmanship is excellent.
My hunch is that the car might have met with an accident hence the front end was reworked. The color is awful IMO, he should have gone for a vinyl wrap instead of repainting the car so often. The color change would affect his resale too

A month back i had seen a Blue F10 BMW M5 before the RTO signal (the juna bajar signal). The TBHP review has the same coloured M5.
About 15 days back saw a hummer H2. I am no hummer fan but that thing looked to big for the Indian roads. Recently spotted a H3 in city pride kothrud parking.
There is 528i which i have seen twice in kothrud, it has the 'M' badging on the sides initially i mistook it as the M5 but on seeing behind found that it was a 528i.

Thanks for the info A.K. The alloys and calipers sure had me fooled. Guess I will call and ask the dealer if its one of their cars.

Followed a Pune registered Black Jaguar XF S from Pulgate Junction till Wanowrie. It was being driven the way it should be. The Dual exhausts looked nice.

Its a looker alright but its just a regular import & quite common in Mumbai atleast.

Seems there are less spotters in Pune. I wish we could have more pics of the elusive MC Stradale- the only 1 in the country!
