I have clicked these pics in a exhibition/Public Place not in his Private premisses, So I don't think I need to take permission....

MODS :- If you think I am right then keep this post or delete it, I will post a new
one again without the Plates....Cheers

Well he had a Jaguar mark II which was recently sold to a big collector.He has a 1971 VW beetle and owns half a Lagonda M45 in Delhi.The Jaguar used to be looked after by my dad.

Not at all. The car was on display at the Cartier show in Mumbai. Two people had jointly bought the car, hence the Half ownership.

Saw a BMW M5 on the Park Circus - Science City connector today on my way to office. The car looks amazing in flesh. OSL Prestige was written at the bottom of the license plates. It was riding on ultra low profile very wide tires and it was sporting huge BMW rims (Could be 17").

While returing from office saw a silver grey Porsche Cayenne parked in a Chetla lane (near Desher Khabar). I was rather surprised to see that the owner had the guts to park the car on the open road in such a locality.

Unhappy

You broke my heart anish. I seriously thought it was a M5 and that too in Kolkata. But how did you make out that it is not an original M5?
And regarding the Cayenne. Does it mean the city has a new Porsche?

A regular 5-series with M badging. Distinguishing features :

The M5 does not have rear reflectors on the bumpers.
The number plate recess is smaller and rectangular whereas the regular 5 series is wider and is trapezoid shaped.

@ Pancham : u got the answer above, apart from that, notice the cutout for the exhaust.
Dont know whether there is a new Cayenne but expensive SUV's sure are increasing in number.
