Default Supercars & Imports : Kerala

Kerala, 'God's own country' is having a very high per capita expenditure rate in the country. This has been reflected in the auto-market of the state. Somany varieties of cars & bikes are there in roads of this small state. And all these cars & bikes are decentralised & lies in the various corners of the state. So this thread in ment to post the pictures & news regarding the various exotic motors spotted from different parts of the state. Kindly mention the place where you spot these motors. Expecting more posts from all Malayalees. To flag-off, I humbly post some automobiles I spotted...

Calicut(my home town)

S500


CLS 350


BMW 730d


S320 CDI


S350


Lexus LX470


New Prado


Volvo S40 stretch


Mazda AZ-3


Suzuki Hayabusa

Neat Snaps Hanmust.There is an M3 in Trivandrum owned by a TBHPian.Also there is a Porsche Cayenne in Chavakkad.Audi TT ,Audi Q7,Audi A8 in cochin.But I feel we cant call these as exotics as such,maybe except the M3.There are people with money but they mostly stick to the expensive but conventional cars.I would love to see a Porsche 911 or the rumoured aston martin.
Technically Cochin hosts some of the most exotic imports in India atleast for a short time,...at the wharf .This includes a TBHPians SL55 AMG.

Mammuka has a rover?? I thought his love for BMW's never ended. I spotted him on his HR regis BMW X5 in Chennai. He was so happy driving that he was smiling throughout the 5 kms, I followed him.
