Saw my first XJ a couple of days ago near Residency. Was MH 12 registered and white in colour. Looks exquisite, but i didn't quite like the back.

And a black H2 near the Chandani Chowk CCD.

Spotted a Black Hummer yesterday night near Prashant Society, Paud road. From a distance, it felt like pimped up SUV with lights on roof; realised it as hummer only when it came close.

Saw a blue Jag XJ coming out of Lane No. 4 Koregaon Park. Tanned leather seats. Very elegant!

Saw a black 760Li today. It was the previous generation 7 series and it had some cool alloys too!

Spotted a brand new bluish silver Aston Martin near University Circle yesterday. Not sure about the model, as he passed by on the other side of the road.

@sukiwa, neoonwheels - that particular H2 can be seen almost everyday outside/ around Karishma Soc.

+1. Thats the first Rapide in India. That was a quick spotting considering it was delivered on the weekend.

So there's already a Rapide in India. Nice. I wouldn't have guessed it would be going to Pune. Any pictures?

This thread needs some life injected into it; and I think the perfect way to do this is if one of the regular Pune spotters could catch the Aston Martin Rapide on film! C'mon guys, wake up!

Can't wait to see the gorgeous Aston trundle about amongst pesky Auto-Rickshaws and Maruti 800s!

Rapide in Pune? Wow!

Looks fantastic in pictures and i'm pretty sure it looks drop dead gorgeous in flesh, cannot wait to catch a glimpse.

I was told delivery was postponed to end of the year but nothing confirmed yet.

The owners shuttle between bombay and pune so if you go to see the car would be in both cities.

I was not in town but i guess the pune guys would spot her and can get a pictures since there are not many places the car can go too.

Thanks for the info, Speedy !
Had thought it was the Rapide going by the slightly upward curved lip spoiler that i could spot in that one moment, but did not hazard a guess.

About the owner - i thought it was Bhosale's cos spotted it where i usually see him driving his rangy.

Please do use the initials and not full names my friend, forum rules.

Secondly i did not say it would be a resident of Mumbai but i mentioned shuttle between the two cities. Thats why i said both cities would have her in terms of viewing pleasure. The owner does come often to Bombay but does not make an announcement of it .
