Default Red Porsche Carrera GT in Mumbai. EDIT: Silver one visiting as well...

Yes folks, its for real.

I had hardly take car to work choose the train instead. But today I decided to take car and guess what I spotted a Red Porsche Carrera GT!
SLR may be/may not be a hoax but this is for real. No pics to prove but hell i can bet anything over a Porsche CGT.
Spotted at City Light, at Shobha Hotel to be precise while taking a right turn.

Happy hunting guys. Bring home the pics.

@ Manish i am sure you would have tracked it down if you were in bombay and on study leave .

Umm, he said Carrera GT. Not GT3. You cannot mistake a Carrera GT for a 997 body shell.

The CGT does not have a "real" roof. And boy it sounds insane when ripped.

Yes. Apart from the usual silver the CGT also comes in red, black and custom colors too.

Manish needs to visit mumbai soon. Guys get on the streets and hunt this beast down. we need the pics and videos soon. Any idea who's the owner?

thats super-spotting, F50.
Now, that is a real supercar imho. Who ? How ? LHD/RHD ? comes later - we want pics !!

Happy hunting to all the teamBHP snappers in mumbai..

Lemme make it more interesting.. whoever spots and photographs the Carerra GT first, gets a 1:36 scale pic of the same.
