This is not a E63 AMG.

Just a regular E with different badging. Belongs to Mumbai.

Followed a White 6 series Convertible from Poolgate till Lal Deval in Camp monday morning. The Driver was ripping it through traffic. GA-111 plates. It had a M badge at the rear but was just a regular 6 series.
Next day same location a newish Red Z4.
Spotted a Red Volvo V40 in the fuel bunk near my apartment complex. An elderly gentleman in a white cap & pathani suit & white beard got down to fill fuel. Looked smashing in red.

Came across a Silver 650 Convertible at Poolgate junction yesterday around 2:30 pm. There were 2 ladies inside.
Spotted a matte Orange / Yellow R8 with Black blades bang outside Euriska in Koregaon Park last night. It looked like a wrap. Could not check it out much as I was driving.

Yes, it's a X6M with the Hamann Typhoon widebody kit.
Super SUV in the true sense of words.

You mean to say Hamann Tycoon? Also, is it just a bodykit? I think its a complete job. I've also seen it in person and it also sounds massively louder than the stock car.

Here are couple of pics when a friend of mine recently visited this person's home

The whole P family has only one 458.
The other was sold ages back.


Yes. I meant the Tycoon.
My bad there.

And yes, its a complete job.Not just a bodykit.
Had the opportunity to see it up close and personal this Sunday.
It's mad, loud and keeps up with the 458 easily

Okay, sold. I didn't know that part. I knew AP had one at one point.

Why keep up? I believe, in a straight line it will easily out-pull the 458.

Yes, AP's was a similarly specc'd 458.


Their 0-60mph times are over a second apart.
I believe it will give a tough fight but out-pull a 458?
Quite a debatable one that.

The X6M is originally from Chennai, i know the earlier owner of the car. Great to see it in it's new hamann form. The car's a beast. He also owned a Ferrari F430 which was sold to a guy in Kerala, All his cars have the number 5545 on them,

yes I remember this, they were some of the most elusive cars in Chennai at the time (atlest to most of us plebeians). was lucky to spot both at the same time once.

He even had a Giallo Orion Murcielago I believe. All of which were sold when he came under the media glare.

Forget 0-100s, once the engine gets to heat, the new //Ms pull like a train. We recently did a run in an F10 M5 and an LP550. The Gallardo was going flat out and the M5 easily could keep up in three-quarter throttle. If it was a drag, the M5 would've blitzed the Bull.

I believe the heavier and AWD X6M would put the power down in a straight line better than the light and nimble 458.

Don't get me wrong, I didn't say it would be a pleasurable ordeal. It would scare the daylights out of you

Err..no. The F430 and X6M belonged to the IPL Team owner/Cement mogul and the Murcielago belonged to the Airlines and Television Network mogul.
