Yesterday was a super day for me. Spotted a lot of supercars. While in Koregaon Park saw the Flying Spur being followed by Cayenne Turbo. While I was trailing them saw a yellow Porsche 911 (997 perhaps) on the other side of the road. Then at the intersection at North Main road saw the gray coloured BMW 6 series. A few metres ahead saw the Fiat India owned 500. Then at the airport saw the blue coloured M5!
Also on the way back the maroon Phantom whizzed past by me. Sorry no photos of any car, as I was driving.

Spotted a Red Nissan Micra on tilak road today evening. Car was mumbai - registered, and i guess a new one, as there was the typical and fresh garland tied to the bonnet.
This car, IMHO, fits pune traffic perfect.

@ neon-are you sure it was a cadillac which was balck in color because theres generally a black Chrysler there.

well some more news the new maroon phantom,a white bentley flying spur which is poonawalas their license plates have YZP written on it. i think it was yohan poonawalas. then avinash bhosale took the continental GT silver in color,he took the new accord as well hehe,must be peanuts for him.

avinash bhosale's even got a black range rover,silver phantom,a bentley,3 s-class,2 lx470.
even balaji rao ( venky's) got a flying spur white. last week saw a carerraS at mainland china it was baba kalyanis carerra-silver.

hey paddy,
thats a stale news actually.
@ Kalyani's Carrera S - are you sure ? Afaik, he's old enough to roam around in a luxo-barge like S or a 7 series beemer.

Oh, btw, please go through the announcements section once again, and post with some punctuation unless you want some mod's wrath upon yourself

It must be. I have seen his Chrysler which I mistaken as Bentely. This seems to be cadillac. I searched for a Cadillac and the below image is very much similar to the one I saw. I will try and click a snap.

Which Jaguar you are talking about speedy!!?? In my previous posts i have mentioned about one XJ owned by the Gutkha King himself, and it is there in Koregaon Park aswell. Oh..!! yes but it is a sedan. No idea about the coupe though. Karl you got any details?

Speedy, I know of only Sedan Jags in Pune, one is an X type, one is an S type. The X type is in Koregaon Park, sharing garages with the Maybach (which we havent seen in ages!). Perhaps this coupe you speak of is also around, I haven't seen it though.

Secondly, what is a new old Jaguar?

@Speedy
I think I have seen it (as it was an old Jaguar, I thought it was documented and I never mentioned it), a Red Jaguar XJS. Seen it maybe twice in Koregaon Park.

I saw this XJS two door (early late 70's early to mid eighties example near baner 4 to 5 year ago it had a bodykit and was a 2 door coupe...wasn't this owned by Mumbai Parsi areomodeling enthusiast who passed away a few year ago. It was profiled very often in the auto mags in late 90's early 2000.

Saw a new (unregistered,2008 MY) Landcruiser in Kothrud today. Inspite of the big new German SUVs available, there is still demand for the LC.
