This looks like an open invitation for the salty sea water to enter every nook and cranny of that car so rust could come in prematurely wow taking jag on to the beach thats a new one

You see something new everyday

You should see the pics of the Mercs, Beemers and cayennes on the beach. Taking cars to the beach is fairly common here, ie if you love your life and do what you want and ....have money in the bank.

Oh and the location is a drive in beach

Wow another well used Jag , apart from my friends in Chennai. Wonder if my friend has done this. But again apart formt he beach outing the 5.0 litre v8 is simply so sweet.
Waiting for the 600nm Jag XF s to be launched.

Nice pics there buddy. Does it belong to the IT garage ? Better pics are welcome.

The car belongs on a track(as shown example by our fellow-bhpian) and not near salty water which does no good for the car. For the photography sake, Appreciate it.

It does not belong to the IT group. I am sure the owners will take it to the track as well .

And the car belongs where the owner wants it to be. Its better than in a garage and doing 10KM daily city drives.

Hani has better photos of Cayennes and Beemers on the beach.

Ok, I've seen pics and videos of the Cayenne at the beach. More pics of the XF ?

Is it Muzhappilangad drive-in beach? I think it's the only drive-in beach in India

@jagxf - Its an awesome experience driving there, and you dont need to have 4x4. I did not see any other beach where you can drive 4-5 KM straight in water without strucking the wheels. It is very common there people drive their vehicle in salt water and get it washed after the fun drive.

It's just 8KM from my home and I used to take my Shogun to this beach in the past.

See the google pic search result:

Its in Kannur district in north Kerala, around 650KM from Chennai am not sure. It attracts lots of domestic/international tourists, and driving in beach is allowed there.

Exact distance from Chennai to Kannur Town is 675kms and take approximately 11.50hrs to drive down.

OT - @jag- Don't forget you promise. Do visit me, another 170 something kms.

Edit - @Latheesh - Thanks for the correction bro. Corrected !
