@rohin: I am guessing the Countryman is sharing the famous garage which houses the candy orange E?
And a lovely spotting of the Ghost & the Z4. For once I was surprised to believe it was calcutta.

Nope,the Mini Cooper Countryman does not belong to the Candy Mercedes garage.

Both the Z4 and the Ghost belong to the same owner.He was featured for his Ghost in the Telegraph Metro too.

Really feel sorry for these thoroughbreds leashed in Kolkata. Where do you drive them, to exploit even 50% of their potential ?
At least in the Bombay - Pune region you have some nice driving roads. Same goes for Delhi / NCR circuit too (with the recent inclusion of the "pay and drive" thingy on the BIC). In and around Bangalore one can also find some nice roads. Chennai has the scenic and twisty East Coast Road,the crowded but smooth Chennai - Trichy road etc

But where do you go in Cal region? NH-2/Durgapur Expressway?
Eastern Bypass (got enough bumps to tear off the undercarriage of many a exotic), Diamond Harbour side?? or maybe the old favourite , tearing down Red Road/Strand Road/AJC Bose flyover at 3am at night.
You can't even drive down to North Bengal,the NH from Cal - Siliguri is in tatters, to sample the freshly laid tarmac of the hillclimb through the Rohini Tea Estate.

It's an insult to these cars. Its like keeping a thoroughbred hound chained in your living room and taking it for a walk in the park - on a leash - every now and then !

Infrasturcture is a very sad park of Bengal.

I happen to know a few supercar owners really well.

They always take their supercars/exotics out on spins around Alipore,Maidan,Red Road,Princep Ghat,AJC Bose Road Flyover,Park Street as these places only have pliable roads for these beauties in the city.
If its the highways then NH-2 only.

And yeah,all these cars come out every week and the owners thoroughly enjoy them.
So there is nothing like they are just kept idle in their parking lots.

Some Brilliant News.

Most probably a Lamborghini Gallardo India Special Edition is coming to Calcutta.
It is going to be added to a very famed garage here.

I know the owner and have seen the car several times. Sounds lovely and have requested him for a ride. Let's see.

Few pics of a Merc GL350 CDI from the famous Salt Lake garage and a peek-a-boo of the Porsche Panamera. The copper Audi R8 V10 was parked just ahead of the Panamera.
