When did you click that pic. This car is currently not working and is lying in 4 seasons since quite a lot of time. If you clicked it long time back then PM me the car number so we can confirm if its the same car

I doubt this red 8 is a tuned by anyone. It just has a few added things like spoiler, exhaust syster.
but if it were really tuned it wouldn't have such bad alloy wheels.
these look like bad asian wheels. not any high end performance wheels.

does any one know if this car might be for sale? i have a person who will buy. even if it is not in working condition and has major problem.
very serious. i'm in delhi and know nothing about bombay.
please find out team bhp! please!

The owner is a rich person who doesnot care about the car and has other cars to talk about. The car is in a bad shape and you will need to obtain quite expensive parts. (Madmonkey told me this) My mind is thinking similar to your friends. Who wont want a Beemer

I know someone who will pay good money for it and will pay good money for the parts. no matter how much.
So now if someone can help me... Please do.

but better than flying is to get his number somehow. Can it be done??

The old wheels (that jesal posted a pic of) were VERY nice, although you cannot really see in the pic he posted. I think the car even had P-Zero's on.
As mentioned earlier in this thread, its just an AC bodykit.

The car is parked at 4 seasons in tardeo, so im guessing thats who you should contact if you are seriously interested in purchasing it.
