The Bentley in one of the preceding pages looks a little whack'd. Maybe the wheels are not originals?.

Saw a rare sight yesterday, 4 door Bentley Continental in dark grey. Waiting at the lights in Teynampet. By the number plate I'd say it belonged to the same owner as Chennai's yellow Lambo. I was getting crushed on all sides by traffic, no time to snap a photo. It was a similar colour as in this sample pic though, quite an amazing sight on our crowded rainy streets (!):

The modified amby does not have a ISUZU engine but a 4.5 Liter, 6 cyl FORD engine. Here is a link to the thread containing more details.

The black Merc AMG belongs to a famous doctor. you can catch the car outside "IN-Shape" gym between 7-9am daily at their Alwathirunagar Branch. Apparently (as per the gym staff) he also owns quite a few High-end bikes including a Hayabusa.

Cheers

Don't think it's saravana bhavan guy's car.they're usually xxyy or yyxx..don't know if it's ok to post the numbers.the auto expo I think was held in svce.slowly the auto scene is opening up further.looks like chennai's thinking of making a mark on the automotive map outside of automotive manufacturing..
