Nice pics Avishar. I saw a brand new British Racing Green XJ L at Alipore the other day.

i saw one XF Sweeden Hony Car near Park Circus - it was being driven by a young person. probably an embassy car. Couldn't snap it because i was crossing the road at Zeeshan.

A super cars club is what is required in this city.

Saw a white XF (V8), parked on the pavement near FD block, just near Broadway. Had also seen it yesterday. Also saw what is possibly Kolkata's first A7 Sportback, in white. Had S-Line badging on the sides. Must say it looked fantastic, inspite of all the mud. Spotted a white X5 yesterday as well.

I think you got the block wrong. I saw the same car in front of Columbia Asia Hospital(which happens to be very near Broadway) at around 6.30 in the morning(today).

That is quite a strong possibility. Saltlake confuses me. But it was just after Broadway, if you go towards Karunamoyee.

Guys what is the RTO upto?How is this possible?
The R8 V10 and this Figo share the same number plates.
This is not a photoshop,both these pics were take by a friend and avid Tbhp reader Rishi Bhagat.

Sorry Mods for not blanking out the plates.I wanted to show the common numbers.

How is this even possible. I dont think it is fake because it is Rishi Bhagat. But still, this is unbelievable.
P.S: THAT is also a HSRP on that FIGO.

the Audi R8 V10 was bought from Audi Kolkata - chances of fouling plates is less. it may be WB06 E in one of the cars - can you check the front plates of both the cars?

If and only if the Figo plates are not PSed then there could be something wrong with the R8 plates BECAUSE figo has got the HSRPs.

if you look closely at the R8 plate, the 9s look different - i have a feeling it is 9206 in the R8.

if R8 has false plates, then it will be in trouble soon.

Pancham - if you have the un-editted pics of the R8 at Saltlake stadium - please check and confirm.

Both cars have been bought from official dealers.Its 06F in both cars.If you see the earlier pics of the r8 its 9209 only.And the figo picture is definitely not PS'd.

Today on the water logged EM byepass,we met an surprising companion,the dark blue Bentley.We followed it all the way to the park circus crossing where it succumbed to the knee deep water,and embarrassingly stalled in the middle of the road,while altos and santros were passing it!Finally they managed to get 3 people to push it.

The star of today's Venice-like kolkata roads were the SUVs.1 blue porsche cayenne,black Volvo XC90,Q5s,one brand new black Freelander all gleefully glided along the waist deep water while other hapless cars could just stand beside stalling one by one.

I could be wrong with this, but going by the pics of the Cars there, I see that the number plate of the Figo seems to have a slight issue with a skewed number plate. Check the attached GIF image below to check if you too see, what I see or feel to be there. I could be wrong but just a wild guess.
