Looks like tvm too is getting its share of attention ,apart from few Merc S',BMW 7s, X5s,Q7s and A8, real exotics are stepping out to "gutter" roads here.

AFAIK a E36 BMW M3 GTR is the only true exotic we can claim belonging to tvm.
Can we have some pics of the M3? The porsche is a nice find, specially the first pic, where its with a Padmini.

Some pics of the H2 from my side.
This same UAE Hummer has been in Mangalore since the last few days. Its been all over the news here!
Also, a cowdung green colour MH43-4000 Registered H3 is buzzing about on our city roads!

Green coloured Hummer belongs to someone staying in the Casa Grande Apartments. Spotted this last friday at the Pumpwell Mosque.

That is one hot looking M3. Wonder how he manages to take it over humps. The front spoiler is just too low for our roads. Go into a pothole and i'm sure it would touch base, let alone a hump. How come the car is stooping down from rear to front (see 2nd picture)

That's a nice looking M3. Except for the wheels. They seem too big.
And about it being a GTR, there wasnt a GTR version of the e36.

Shamik me think the same got to watch out whilst throwing around names & nomenclature crazy. I too was thinking where did this GTR come from when all see is a double spoilered M3 with oversized wheels! She sure looks great but I am sure owner keeps her in garage mostly and brings her out on occasions much like the family silver Sad

BMW M3 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Its mentioned in the article itself
"There were six special-edition models of the E36 M3 produced: the M3 Euro-Spec (Canadian Edition), M3 CSL (M3 LTW), M3 GT, M3 GT-R, M3-R and the Imola Individual GT2 (the last of the E36s)"

It was used for racing in England by owner,converted to a road car for bringing it here so basically its now a road going version of the race car as we say in case of Ferrari 360 CS,F430 Scuderia

Its called a 'stance' buddy. That is how proper sports cars with a good suspension job look like.

From what i could make out, the GTR was a race special make. And there never was a road-going version. Nevertheless, nice car.

As you sure regarding that. The M3 GTR in the attached picture somehow does not seem to have the same stance.

@longhorn: I think its just the bodykit that making it look like its stooping down. And the picture you've attached is that of an e46 M3 GTR. The best version of the best supersaloon ever.

Somehow the angle appears to be more than normal even if we discount the body kit. Probably might be a raised rear suspension. Could not get hold of any pics of the E36 M3 GTR (other than race spec).
