Going by the yellow plates, may be the XF's are the new additions to the taxi fleet of Taj Bengal.

Looking at another thread where there are pics of similiar black Taj xfs,no doubt these are for Taj Bengal.

Are those XF-S?

A New Silver XF has arrived in my building. Will try and get pics in a day or two. Btw, does anyone have any update on the JLR showroom that was supposedly going to open up in Kolkata?

Yes they are using the Lexus Motors showroom to sell cars and that is the one that will be made into the JLR showroom later on.

Well it's more of a personal opinion.

These were some picture's I thought you guys would love
Sorry mate! I disagree! I have been driven in a 355 before, and forget the sense of speed or the numbers (even a Mitsubishi EVO FQ400 would trounce the 355) and that's the thing, this car isn't about speed, or out-right performance. It's about the sense of passion, the feel of the thing, the wind in your hair and that glorious banshee-scream from the quad-pipes when you take it north of 5k RPM.

As a performance oriented sports/super-car, the Gallardo is immense. But as a Lamborghini, it's rubbish! I'd take a 458 over it any day. Or even the Audi R8 V10.

You have brought life into the Kolkata Imports thread . Keeps me coming back to check it only for the 355.
Absolutely.

I'm a hard-core Porschephile and nothing will move me more than a beautiful '80s 911 Carrera 3.2 or the 964 Turbo. But this Ferrari makes me feel like there is a long way for me to go before I arrive in life.

The Kolkata Imports thread keeps calling me every now and then, especially since the 355 had come up here.

Guys, I just saw the E class convertible cabriolet I think it is. I saw it at park street, approaching towards the park circus 7 point crossing. I was parking my bike, and suddenly I heard something cool, loud going past, rather wizzing past, I turned, and saw the beauty disappear. Great one. It was the same one I think whose pic LM002 has posted above.
My friend spotted a Carrera today somewhere near camac st or theatre road. She couldnt give me much info on it, she just said she saw something written "camera", I had to guess the rest from her
