If me & you are talking about the same car then no it doesn't belong to the hotel owner but rather the owner of the car lives in the area so it might be his regular hang-out spot or he comes to the health club or something! Will ask him when I meet him next!

Dude the owner of the hotel does own the R8. The promoters live in Golf links. His family has a couple of descent cars. Remember the blue maserati GTS with red interiors? They also have the phantom and a fleet of 7s and S-class's.

Ishan, I also spotted one such beauty outside Shangri-La earlier this year. Moreover, if it would have been of the owners (Soods) then it won't be in the queue for security check.

Could be possible, with the amount of cars the Sood's acquire its hard to keep track. Especially with their exotics on taxi plates.

Buddy, if you see certain exotics have black roofs which is a translucent roof. This enables one to have a outer view throughout the roof.

OMG with hotels like Shangri-La and Intercontinental, the Soods can buy an array of R8s. But I like their choice of cars, the R8, Maser GTS, Phantom are great choices. Specially a maser in blue with red interiors is quite a bold move. Sorry for going OT !!

Could we have some detailed pictures please? Of your ride, and that of your friends. I thought the one @ the end was a f430.

Basically it's a tinted glass roof extending from the windshield to the rear-window, so that you can enjoy looking through the roof and still have a chappar over your head.
The name is derived from the word panorama.

Doesn't a panoramic roof makes the car's interiors hot as tinted glasses do till some extent?
