Was probably the first rag-top sports car I had ever seen in the flesh in India! Affordable, cute and sprightly!

@ Manish: Nice pics mate! The A8 looks really nice with its fancy rims.

Spotted over the last two days: a Vauxhall Frontera, a Land Rover Defender and a Nissan Pathfinder on Boat Club Road, an old-gen CR-V on Cathedral road, and an Audi A8L 4.2 in Anna Nagar. Couldn't take pics of anything execpt the CR-V. The Frontera, the Pathfinder and the CR-V were all consulate cars. Also, I'm spotting too many Land Rovers in Chennai nowadays. Not that I'm complaining though .

Those wheels do look very nice but somehow, they don't suit the car! The A8 is a stately and majestic yet very understated car you see!

Maybe I should see it in the flesh but I've always fancied the wheels you see on the A8 W12. (Movie: Transporter 2)
