Last Friday I was in Cochin for Volvo OCean Race, I had an invitation from Wilhmensons Shipping, who sponcers the logistic for the race to take part in their meet at LeMeridian. One of uncle is a GM of the company, hence I got the invitation.

It was a wonderful day, not only the race, but also some exotic auto moments. I had an oppertunity to test the new Audi TT. Moreover when I went to BMW showroom there were some real exotics, a black M3 & a white 650i. There was another older version TT. On the way also spotted two Toyota - a black FJ Cruiser & a white Alphard. The guy has spoiled the looks of the FJ by fitting a unmatching bull guard & a roof carier.

A detailed test-report of TT will pbe posting soon.

Awesome pictures and eagerly awaiting the TT drive exp..
Just a little correction , and I hope it is taken in the right spirit... The M3 and 650i are Sports car and a GT respectively .. Not exotics... I understand that it is just a figure of speech , but just felt like saying the aforementioned. Hope it is not misunderstood.

No hard feelings. . I know what you ment, but in this state there is no Ferrari or a Lambo to be included in exotic stable, hence 650i & m3 falls in exotic catergory here.

V12 those tail lights are not aftermarket, they were fitted for 2007 LX470 models. It might be a Toyota Cygnus rebadge to Lexus.
