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.
Oh. My bad. But they had similar plates with 5's, innit?

Scorcher is not far off with his info but i need to add the Murcielago used to belong to the famous Politician brother not the Airlines Mogul,
The Ferrari F430 and X6M was owned by not the Cement mogul but by his family member, who is allegedly being called the IPL Team Owner,
He also owned a Black Porsche Cayenne Turbo with the similar number plate, its been sold to a chennai businessman.
I think i might get in trouble for this info, but need to keep the facts clear.

Ohh, I was always under the impression that the LP640 was KNM's car. I'd heard DNM had ordered a Ferrari California circa the time the Murcielago was sold, but they didn't take delivery cos of all the "issues".

Yes, I knew the Fezza and Bimmer were GM's, just made it a lil' easy for Akshat

One of the other special cars which they still have is a previous generation 5 series. It was one of the first to be imported alongwith MM's orange 5 and TVS's dark green 5. The GC of all 3 cars is distinct...

Drove past a brand new white CLA last night around 9:30 at Poolgate junction. It had Temporary Registration. The LED Tail lights looked fantastic

Bingo. Drool Maal
By the way, spotted a small part of Pune's sole Red 458 right outside the entrance of Coconut Grove around 10:15 this morning. There were 2 cars in front of me hence had to settle with whatever little I could see. It had a nice exhaust & drowned all other sounds in its wake.

A brand new White Jaguar F type has made Pune its home. Just saw it near Lashkar Police Station in Camp around 9:45 pm today. It could make out only by its headlights as it was dark due to the rains.
