You are right...That IS an EVO VI.. Well, I'm not perfectly sure that it was the same car. The rear spoiler wasn't that huge. It was trim. And the air scoops on the bonnet surely wasn't that. It was stretched right from the front to near the wipers on either side, and they were even more spaced out.

Dude, though I'm a Kolkatan at heart, I don't live there nowadays. An not at all thorough with the car scene there. Was there just for Diwali. Whatever it was, it was pleasing to the senses. And I got to see some spirited driving on empty kolkata roads at 5 in the morning. If it is the same car, it must have undergone some cosmetic mods. Thats all I can say.

Nice catch there but I must add, that a Q5 ain't a rare site by any standards nowadays. Even then, I must say that a Q5 may make more sense on roads like ours, than a humongous Q7.

Out of all the German luxo-barges I'd pick the Audi A8 any day.No fuss.Understated class and imposing presence.And after spotting a brand new A8 in the flesh(surprsingly at durgapur!),I'll stick to my opinion even more!

I think its the first A8 in the state with WB plates(?).

That looks more like a C230 judging by the wheels and the Avantgarde grille.
