Spotted a white Mercedes 300D 4matic near Elgin road Gurudwara today and while I was driving along the AJC Bose road flyover,I spotted a Volkswagen in my IRVM,and thought it to be a Jetta.But it came alongside me and then took a right turn towards Zeeshan and finally sped away towards Ballygunge Phanri.It was a maroon-ish Passat 2.0 TDI with WB 06B 8XXX registration plate.The taillight cluster was awesome.Took a couple of pictures of the car.

@ultimate champ: I don't think the Passat is anything to write about. Yeah sure its a bit uncommon but its sold here officially by VW so it isnt an import. And it definitely isnt a supercar or an exotic.

Hey Kolkata Team-BHPians, just got news from a friend that there's an aston martin convertible in kolkata. Anyone heard anything of the sort?

Default Rolls Royce Corniche II (Fixed head) : Any news?

I had met a gentleman living in a large house on Ballygunge Circular Road sometime in 2001-02, who wanted to sell his black Rolls Royce Corniche II (fixed head) coupe, circa 1979. He had a red ( or maybe cream) Porsche 911, parked in his compound. On questioning him as to why he wanted to sell his pristine RR he told me he preferred open top cars and that he drove his Rolls very carefully and after 10 pm about once every week, when the traffic would be sparse.

After going over my boyish enthusiasm for a Roller, he very politely told me that it would not be a very good idea for the RR to be my first car!

In any case his asking price was beyond me.
He was also taking this car on a train to Hyderabad for a family wedding procession, so probably he is in some way connected to the Nizams there.

I really don't know how this will help Calcutta's bhpians but there it is.

Regards
Lads,

Going through the thread elsewhere on the Tolly Club Car & Pet Show (might have got the label wrong) 2009, I am almost certain that the gentleman who had put his RR Corniche II on the block was Mr. G Momen. Will appreciate any updates on this RR?

Regards

Yeah! Co-incidentally a friend just called up and said he saw that very CLS 350(maroon) in park circus!

All of you Kolkatans, please be on the lookout for a White Evo VII. It looked real to me. Was going to the airport at 5 in the morning when the car zoomed away in the opposite direction.
The driving was pretty spirited I must say.
The engine hood of the car has got after-market air scoops.
I have seen quite a few Evo kits on lancers but the engine whine was distinctly different, so I'm guessing it wasn't a kit.
Any update on this please?

No pics though, the car was faster than me. Lousy me.
