Saw a GL63 AMG on Friday last week while on my way to office 9:30 ish. It was more of mettalic marron shade with TC plates. Was driven by elderly gentleman with couple of more people in the car. It was probably going through a test ride?

Ocellus Teal is the gorgeous blue shade first seen on the Vanquish Roadster. Viridian Green is a completely different shade and lot similar to the shade seen on that DB9. Ive attached pics of both for reference. The Vanquish in Ocellus Teal and the V8 Vantage Roadster in Viridian Green:

Cheers

Not really an exotic but there aren't even a dozen of the these in India. This is being used as a security car and I wonder how much sense it makes considering the fuel it guzzles.

Looks like Mercedes are becoming too common in their home town!
I was turning into lane 5, KP Saturday around noon when a Matte Green G55 AMG whizzed past from the opposite side. All i could see was the back portion as it was hidden behind other vehicles. This color looks very cool on the vehicle but blends in with the surrounding making it difficult to spot.
Later in the evening, I spotted a Golden / Beige color CLA / CLS near RTO.

There are Golden colored (wrapped maybe) A,C and E classes by MB as some special edition at the Mumbai showroom.
CLS possible too, but if you saw a CLA45 AMG, as the AMGs only have come in,then you should've clicked it
Would've been a great find !

Wanted to but since I was driving all I got were a few fleeting glimpses as it was in the opposite lane. Next time maybe

The latest addition to my apartment complex. Its a Diesel & shares its garage with a White Cayenne (Petrol) & a fleet of other cars. The Blue color looks terrific in daylight.

Saw a Lexus LX 470 SUV doing rounds on the NDA pashan road 2-3 times now.
The number is MH-12 HN XXXX
Looks to be a new import. Will take pics next time I spot it.

Was it following some exotic car (import) or were there any body-guard type people sitting inside? If yes then the car can been seen on NDA road/ Chandani Chowk. Never try to click snaps without the permission of the owner/ guards, have heard stories of them getting violent.


@athanedar : Was it LX 470 or the new LX 570? Because AFAIK the LX 470 was discontinued in 2007/08. Correct m if I am wrong.

It wasnt following any exotic car, but it was standing outside imported used car dealer. And yes the driver looked like a bodyguard by his physic.
