That is not the producer's car, belongs to a jeweller. Its the only 4.8 X5 sold by BMW Kochi.

I met the owner a couple weeks back, couldn't click any pics then.

IMHO the rear wheels looks too small to be a V8 X5, AFIK X5 4.8i & 4.8is have really huge real wheels (probably larger front wheels as well), even the exhusts are bigger and alloysa re bigger (unless they sold V8 in this package in India). This one looks just like the 3.0L/3.5 V6 version.

I was wrong , this wasn't producer's car and colour is not exactly black kinda blueish black

Was the car sold from BMW Kochi registered in Kerala?

This one is not kerala registered , i have seen this car couple of times in trivandrum earlier

This is indeed a 4.8 V8 petrol , i was able to get a peek inside the hood and saw a roaring V8

Yes, it was sold by BMW Kochi but it is TN regn.

Planning a day out with this X5 and RR Sport TD-V8 sometime soon. Should be fun

I wonder why it has the smaller wheels, rims and exhausts then. Does not look like the V8 at all, is there so much difference in the V8 models abroad and in India or is it my eyes playing tricks on me?

Bro, the owner is a personal friend. It is indeed a 4.8i. And wierdly bigger wheels were not offered at the time of order. It has all other optional extras.

Is that a government registered number plate on the Jaguar? Can't make it out well. Nice color though. Anyone has the 5 liter turbocharged XJ in Kerala?

That's not Govt. plate, the car belongs to a University Chairman, he earlier had a 5GT which appeared in news cos of these plates. It was later proved legal.

Yes, there is a 5.0 V8 Jag XJ in Kerala, the Red R8 owner's silver XJ. He'll soon replace it with a Ghost.

Here is a pic of the University's XJ from my side,
