Calicut's latest addition, an Audi R8 V10 with its garagemates

Not a new addition to state, this is the ex-Thrissur car which got sold to Cali.

Yes, he bought it in July.

The reason, well, it turned out impractical for his usage.

You know his profession, it's hard to turn up at his workplace in a supercar everyday. Plus, the car is a bit much to use in his city.

The present owner purchased it for his little brother

State's first 2013 RR Autobiography has now been sold to Cochin. Good to see that may exotics are getting deals within the state line.

Err..from what I know, state's first 13 RR Autobiography has been sold to Hyderabad along with a white 13 Vogue.

I don't think that car will be sold in Kerala anyway for reasons I can't mention here.

KL's 1st RR Autobiography belonged to the same garage which has a grey G350 CDI, right?

You could be right then. Or by any chance the present owner is Cochin based.? The bloke who brought the replica'ed Gallardo here was the middle man

The car's been on sale for a while now and off late I started getting references even from dealers up north. Then couple of weeks back I was told an Autobiography and a Vogue from KL has been finalized for Hyderabad. Even while a casual chat with a Hyd Bhpian he mentioned a white KL Vogue has already reached there. So I assume this AB is also headed that way.

Also last day someone sent me a pic of this car being loaded onto a closed trailer truck. I see no reason to get such a truck to transport it within the state.

Wait, am I missing something here? Aren't there a few RR Autobiographies already in the state?
I believe the Kollam garage with the 911 had 2 and another with Mini Muthoot group as well.

Then how is this Hyd bound car the first in the state?

"First in the state", not "Only one in the state"

That came from black 9ff Turbo when he got the BBS

I think Color Glo is doing a good job roping in some major league cars. Mighty impressed with their 'magic' with leather painting.

Indeed they are. I've referred a few of my customers to Color Glo and all of them seem to be happy with the results. Haven't enquired about the costs though.

I've seen two of their jobs in person, an M3 and a Laura. Immaculate job on both. Looks and feels OE. I was told they are charging in the 20k ballpark for the whole interior.

..and just this week I heard from a friend that the painting is hampering the leather's softness in the long run.

. Another super-car has come in as the replacement to his garage. Marginally less super, so can be a daily drive to work.

Scorcher, where are the pics ?
