Spotted a Cayenne S parked at the China Club restaurant in Gurgaon yesterday night. It's either black or some really dark shade (was 1.00 AM and pretty dark, so really couldnt make out the color). Had twin exhausts on either side......the exhausts are 2-in-1 types, looked like the fused headlamps of the Merc C class......and i guess they comes on the new Porsches). Didnt have a cam though, so no pix. The reg was DL #### 0099.

Not really supercars but some interesting ones as well :

Spotted a White Cayenne near East of Kailash, a 320SL, a Chevy Blazer, a modern Camaro ( actually i didn't see it - was seen by a friend) at Sainik Farms, there is a 1979 *and a 1982 mustang for sale, seen a couple of new beetles around Siri Fort (black), there's an SLK at Noida , and was offered a 60's mustang (i couldnt exactly identify the model year but as i remmber it was definitely pre 71) *for sale 3 years back - the mechanic said the owner would sell it for 60K - but didn't have the money at the time and couldn't persuade my parents to loan me the cash - was a 4cyl i think, black, leather seats, but was all rusted around the underbody and *engine compartment and there was tons of putty in the door panels.... i wonder what happened to it.

Also seen an Impala stopped on the DND ...

also seen what i thought was a boxster at def col (yellow) and a blue skyline near the airport(probably form the '80s)
there are quite a fes s classes and 7 series here - seen a few old Jaguars, a ford crown vic...

I've heard of an Humvee , a caddy limo and a few other cars parked at a 5 star hotel almost permanently.

actually we could also start a thread about ugly cars in delhi - white esteem with a 2 feet high spoiler 3 hood scoops and vents, body kit... one esteem with a 'triplane' spoiler and a long antenna poking out, an old 800 with pop up headlights.
not to mention the Qualis with Landcruiser badging and stickers , theres also a C class with an extra kompressor badge on it.
CRV with tyres which look like having a 40 profile... (thats 'supposed' to be an offroader - even though not a proper one)...millions of example abound here on our roads.

At the auto expo this year - at the vintage car hall, while standing and gazing at the 64 1/2 mustang for half an hour each time (i went to the expo twice) one time i heard these 2 pieces of pond scum refer to it as a 'purani contessa'
okay - i like the contessa but no one messes with an old mustang.

and one chap at the skoda booth, there was this chap who tell his pal very knowingly 'oye, yeh sports model hai, mere bhai ke pas be hai' - referring to the Octavia WRC * ...


edit : seen a silver Mitsu 3000GTO at Pragati Maidan with diplomatic plates, a few MX5's and celica's as well.

former Raid de Himalaya winner, biker forgot his full name ('bittoo sodhi??) has a suzuki GSR1200 at his shop in Lajpat Nagar bike market (if i got that right) - guy participated in the RDHeven though he has a prosthesis
aaah , mera dilli ..i love it and i hate it....

manticore, I did'nt see it - a friend of mine saw it andmentioned it to me - IIRC he said it was silver - recent model - and had diplomatic plates.

GM shouldn't have kiled off the camaro . hopefully just marketing strategy .wai ta few years and do a completely new model and get all the old fans drooling.

Talking about tamils and south India I was really astonished to see the garage of a garment exporter in Tirupur near Coimbatore.I went there to buy his 95 Honda Hornet.The garage was more than 5000 sq ft.The most amazing find was a Mazel custom made sportscar from Spain imported in 2005.He also has a 2005 Range Rover sport with a Jag 400 bhp V8.In an airconditioned corner of the garage is a 63 250 Gt Lusso,gleaming like new.
He said he is waiting for the new M6 to present to his son on his birthday.
