Also seems to have some body kit on it. Probably an old car. I see quite a few E60 diesel spec cars smoking like mad in Bangalore under hard acceleration.

It probably was an old car. Looked old. But it did take off quite quickly, leaving the rest of us in a dark cloud!

Saw a black Maserati on the Edappally toll road from Kakkanad side near the Thrikkakara temple yesterday around 5pm.

That looks like a Hamann kitted X6.

It was a runaway sales success (also due to the fact that its direct competitor, Ford Falcon's new model was absolutely *ugly).
Four years later, Holden released the "new" VY series (the red KL07 car above), but the designers had completely spoiled the design by adding angular headlamps & taillights.

It was purely change for change's sake. I still remember seeing this car on the road for the first time, from the rear & thinking "That Lancer seems too big", then going "#$@* What have those morons done?!!! How could they ruin those beautiful lines!?.."

See the original VT Commodore's photos below:
SV6 indeed had the paddle shift which was a revelation at that time . if my memory serves me right it also had sports suspension .

My Fist Car was a VX commodore I still have the plates with me
I did take out the stock shocks and springs of VX commodore and lowered the car and also fitted with Custom extractors and rocket muffler , huh the pure grunt; its such a raw piece of machine .

The Sports version of commodores HSV Club sport /GTO and limited Edition V8 Monaro were even raw and crazy machines . The Torque on these ones were a pure joy had the privilege to drive almost all these cars . Traction what traction control , doughnuts here we go

Ford also had the falcons XR6 Turbo the best among those

Saw this in kalamassery an year ago.

The paint had a glittery nail polish effect and the body kit was misaligned.

Two weeks back, spotted A White RR Phantom, White 2016 Maserati Quattroporte(assuming by length) and White LC200 moving as a convoy from Thrissur to Kochi. Spotted the same on my return journey as well when the same convoy lead by the RR was heading back towards Thrissur side. Any idea which garage these belongs to?? It was truly a sight to behold watching them move in near perfect formation. Did not risk taking pictures as we were moving in opposite directions.

Which car is this? The only one I can relate is the old M Class, with that kind of stepney placement.
