Oh my GODDDDDDD !!! I thought that C-GT disappeared after its stint at the Porsche showroom, I didn't know it was around these days!! How could I possibly miss this, the pic is taken under the Bandra East flyover if I'm not mistaken. And if the driver went UNDER the bridge, that means he was probably heading for Sion side. And that leaves me only imagining what it might have been on the Easter Express Highway !! Sigh, look where my dreams are taking me.

Stunning piece of machinery. I'm YET to see one here in person in London! Are you sure it was being escorted by an A4 or an A6? Ah, who cares!

Beautiful sighting. One thing, that escorting car is an Audi A6.

Why are people looking at the Audi?!?!

I have never seen a CGT on the road before, in any of the countries I've been to...Not even in Germany, north or south!!!

Absolutely stunning...

So any updates on whether this car remains here in India for good (bought by some one) or is it about to leave?

Whoa, the beast is still hunting in town eh! I had a feeling India is not going to let go of her too easy . And if someone has managed to buy it (as varun says), even better.

This is one car I really want to see in person.....high-revving on our roads.

It seems they are taking pictures of the car for publicity before the car is sent back. there is no way the car can remain here unless the person who bought it has paid 500% the value of the car as thats the amount that has been guaranteed by a bank in order to get a carnet for India. After which he has to deal with the lhd problem.

Awesome find dude. thanks for the pics. Not very fond of the red CGT, would have looked killer in black. Nevertheless spotting a CGT on indian roads is a dream come true.

CGT belongs to the Porsche Museum. Shreyans Motors has also got the dealership of Audi now and that is why the escort is the A6. The car is being shot for some Magazine I guess.

That's what it looked like to me from the pictures, so I was confirming. I don't know much about cars.

The two silver scoops on the rear are deck chairs, hence four.

i think the picture was shot a while ago when the porsche was displayed at the showroom. i dont think anyone couldve bought it if it belonged to a museum. also dont you think at least one of us would have seen it in the past couple of months?
