I didn't really take any pics of the Cayenne since I was just mesmerized by the GT.

The only two cars were the GT and Cayenne Turbo. I do believe they had merchandise but once again i was mesmerized by the GT.

take care,

yes the turbo is also in the showroom and loved the way it is parked. the GT and the turbo nose to nose. i loved the colour and had half the mind to walk in and ask for the car. the Cayenne in white looks good. just got a passing glimpse of it. does anyone know if it is kitted, it looked so to me.

@ akshay i passed the showroom yesterday, did not see the cayman inside or outside the showroom. maybe it was just there for a short while.

I think you can see the display at night as well. I still have to see the CGT myself.

But when you can afford to buy the GT, why ask for the Turbo!! you need to patao your Dad though!!
Give me drive in whatever you buy please. And very soon you should look for a private garage closer to your house

the GT is not a practicle everyday use car and besides they are in LHD so you cannot import them. i would rather get myself a Ferrari 599/612 and be happy. My father does not need to be pataoed he wants a sports car too but it is not priority right now. if something nice comes my way you could be rest assured i would be buying it. i would be getting the Hummer in march when it is launched here officially so you are most welcome to take it for a drive. i have bought 5 car parking space next to my house so i am tension free just waiting for the parking lot to be built.

??? I've actually seen a bunch of LHD vehicles in India, 2 beamers in Mumbai, and well tons in delhi, but to be fair a lot of those vehicles i know which were LHDs in delhi were embassey cars [CD licence plates]

Anyway, this is one of my all time fav cars...gotta go beg daddy dearest to pull out the cheque book
