Nope, Akshay a select batch of 211 E350 CBU's was also imported into India and all of them had panoramic roofs. I see quite a few of them in Delhi every now & then.

Most of the cars are left with chauffeurs, they are not left unattended. And as you can see in the pic, the front drivers side window of the Jaguar is half open so there must be someone sitting inside the car to look after it.

You are wrong. This was a special avantgarde version of the e-class which came out towards the end.
It is a sunroof.

Try the rip it in the morning at around 7, you won't be disappointed. I have seen lambos doing 250 KMPH on this road. If you try Sunday you may race some superbikes as well.

That Bentley CGT is the same car which I saw sometime back in GK. It looks phenomenal, has loads of presence and sounds awesome too.

Guys, spotted the most amazing thing.

A white VW phaeton long-wheelbase (W12). AMAZING Presence.

Could not take pics. Saw it near Vasant Vihar.

Wow a phaeton sure does have amazing road presence. Saw one in chennai a few days back and man was it big. Looked much bigger than the regular luxury sedans. Wow and that speed gt sure does look amazing.

@akshay: yes it was indeed the e350 and it did come with the pano sun roof. Remember reading about it in the aci magazine. Think it was priced at around 60 laks . Correct me if I am wrong.Quite a premium. Seen one inn gold in chennai also.

spotted the Grey/Black R8 again this morning. I have seen that car on 6-7 separate occasions at the same place, Intercontinental at Nehru Place. Does the owner of the car have some stake in the hotel or what?

Can you please post some fresh photos of the same ? Would always be a delight to see the R8.

I am sorry but I didn't take any pictures. The car is a regular in this area, I bet Iraghava knows something about it.
