You didn't get it. You see a temporary plate is yellow in color and it has red letters on it. It's not a taxi plate that you see in that snap. Any vehicle that you take on the road before registration usually has one of these.

Saw this RX 8 on Haji Ali a few days back. Was in a hurry so after the signal turned green, was accelerating a little and saw this car creep up beside me. Guess he thought i was racing (Astra Vs. RX8, hahahaha) or something as he was flooring it, let him go on his way.

Anyways it was evening time and heera panna signal was choc-o-bloc as usual.
He had to brake hard once the cars came in view and got stuck in traffic
Overtook him in the traffic as his lane was pretty slow
Could almost see his face go red. hahaha

The car looked pretty good but doesnt look that great in the flesh as i would have imagined it to be. The head lights (they were switched on) looked lovely though.

You could ask fireblader. Although I doubt he imports these, he's on a completely different level altogether

Yup amatmo, I saw the red one for the first time today. Passed it at Choksi and didn't bother to stop and take pics, but then it caught up by the time we reached Bandra and had stopped at the red light. Thought aah WTH, might as well get off and take some pics! Now I'm glad I did. The others i.e. the blue one and the grey one I've seen several times now around Bandra.
