The yellow car with GJ plates is a Fiat Bertone X1/9. Belongs to a friend who also has a vintage jaguar.

@samyakmodi - if you are refering to the owner of this particular ferrari the you are right, he has a good collection of cars including a few exotics but surely not such a huge collection as mentioned.

Hello guys, this is my first post. Some days back saw a yougster driving an immaculate Mercedes SL 320 with amg kit and wheels along with bubble top roof, later that week saw the same guy ripping a white 911. It had an awesome sound, really loud.

Seems like this CLS had a crash. erm .. a pretty big one. In sector V.
A bus came into its path, driver could'nt stop in time and went head on into the bus's side. Then a speeding Sumo came and did the honours from behind. Smashed from front and behind. Driver was driving, with an elderly lady sitting behind. Both escaped unharmed.
This is the only pic that could be managed (by a friend, who dropped his fish chop when he saw what he saw and ran towards the incident). Surprising thing was that a recovery van came and towed it away within 20 mins.

@ toiingg - too bad - what is the car in the background (red and white)? are you sure that the place is @ sector V?

@ guys - anyone spotted the white old BMW (DL registered) with a loud exhaust (chrome single tip end can) - the car was seen on the AJC Bose Flyover @ around 6.30-7.00AM (6th october) - the driver (young guy) took an U-turn at Sheesh and zooomed past my car on the flyover.

I have to admit that that's a ghastly picture. Not only does it not look like India, it doesn't look Earthly.

Nope, this was the only pic that he had taken (claimed). Even I had my apprehensions but trusted that he was telling the truth.
