@shamik-Had seen the white A8 only once. Never seen it since. Since you would be in the area, could you try and get pics of the white/silver 7-series in Hungerford street? Its in the building just after the Saturday club's entrance on the left side i think. And there should be a Merc there too. You may spot the silver XF parked outside CCFC at times. I think it stays in the area around there,(seen it mostly there).
@Avishar-I've seen the black one ages ago. But A8s are very rare. Was quite surprised to see the white one.

Any one with more updates about the Lambo which is supposedly coming to kolkata?

I had already posted pictures of that 7-series. Its a 740Li. See it everyday.Don't know about the silver XF, but the white one stays near Ekdalia. Shares garage space with an Aveo.

The Lamborghini should be in Kolkata around the second week of September.

@GordonGekko,

I just can't fathom whether this thread is for Kolkatan's to put up stuff they see or to explain to people who don't want to understand. I suppose it has been reiterated before and am going to say it again. Please do not make this thread a bashing place.

As comfirmed by evo, that Ignis is a real import. Even a couple of Mitsubishi Lancers which were directly imported from Japan by two people I know can be called imports because they were imported even before Mitsubishi even considered India. If people still can't agree then how is that we claim that the 1990's BMW 3 series sedans are classified as imports or exotics when right now the 3 series is sold widely.

By the way spotted a silver A8 3.0 TDi, 06E regn in chetla on saturday. Awesome looking machine.

i guess the building diagonally opposite South Point Jr School - the one which has a drinking water tap attached to the boundary wall.

I didn't see the Black SL 63 yesterday - the usual silver car was standing in the corner.

Oh! Snapped this yesterday - Pic editted / blurred keeping in mind vegetarians

The Red 500 has been idle since a year at Lexas - They should not have brought it here.

Umm..It's the new gen 7-series I'm talking about. There used to be a Bangled one at the same spot before. It had been replaced with the latest gen one if I remember correctly.

The SL 63 AMG is stale news. It's owned by Mr.Babi Nobis(official, hence disclosing name of owner). Search this thread for more info.

I thought he owned a charcoal grey SL63AMG showcased at a Vintage Car show.

Pancham was talking about a Black SL63 AMG

EDIT: @ Anish - TD cars? Do they let any one take a Test Drive?

Its a few buildings after SimPark. Opposite the petrol pump.
@Pancham: The black SL63 is great news.
Also saw an old gen Bangled 7-series on Hungerford Street today, but weirdly it has a 06 regn.
