There are many pictures of cars doing the rounds brother, but not all cars claimed are in India. In India there is a very miniscule amount of people that can and would bring in a super car of the price tag commanded by the SLR. I know alot of them and none have got it and in the circles also the car is not known. That is why i am confident. The one bought by my friend who also owns other highend cars like the S65 AMG, Bentley GTC Speed to name a few has bought a silver SLR abroad and dropped the idea of getting it here. There is no search as the car is not in Mumbai, dont know which city you have been informed of being the home to this car.

Brother, I understand what you meant and accept the fact that i might be misguided. What i said to search was the pics this person send me and claimed to be in the country. I just wanted to sort it out. GOD !! Trust me on this, i kind of believed the info when i saw the pics. I too wondered how come no one was aware of it in tbhp. MY BAD. Sorry guys. Cheers.

Hi guys,
Saw a black Bentley CFS today in Mahipalpur on my way to DLF. Felt sorry for the poor car as it was crawling in traffic and almost got rear ended by an auto.

Default spotted a panamera today

Was driving for a meeting when I spotted the Panamera, interestingly the Panamera was going to the same place as I was for the meeting. To me it looked like a very low Cayenne or a stretched 911 (take your pic), In my opinion, not the prettiest car on the roads today (Again, its my opinion, which of course may differ from what others have to say).

And again im sure the panamera has got an awesome road presence but pretty i really dont think so particularly from the back .the back always reminds me of an hearse .

Thats a good catch there. The front end of the Panamera looks striking and really good but the rear is really ugly (only my opinion) but surely the car has loads of presence. Being a Porsche helps

It was some site. others that came and went were some X5s and X6s and few Audis.

The LWD Phantom is just a gorgeous looker, took some pictures from my phone, havent downloaded them yet, when I do, I will post them up. I will not smudge the license plate because i believe its not owned by an unknown owner.
I saw the phantom and the maserati there too. I think it is the best place to spot new exotics in delhi.

you came in a bentley. must be rollin.

Nice catch there maglev. Jags are getting more and more popular in the country and for good reason. This XF looks stunning and has a great shape too.

The Jag looks stunning!
By the way, did it have a taxi number plate?

Wow the jaguar looks really really stunning. Compare it to the almost 4 times more expensive panamera(turbo).

Many dealers book cars when the bookings open and get alloted cars during the first month of Launch. I was offered a Ferrari 458 Italia and the Mercedes SLR 722 RHD just when deliveries of the car started.

There would be in my opinioun 5 Panamera's delivered as of now in the country.
Buddy there is no such thing as 722 in RHD SLR was only a LHD car
