Oh wow. I should have gone for the morning walk. I'm going for one tomorrow then.
I wanted to catch the Gallardo SL as well. Damn. Is it the white one, Siva?

Sighted the white car tearing up the Marina Kamaraj Salai tarmac exactly 30 minutes back... drove back to the parking and had a good look at it... has quite a growl...

couldn't get pictures though... if someone knows the owner, please ask him to bring it again to the Marina Gandhi beach tomorrow.

Welcoming a new car to the city of Madras !!

@karthik - Right, its the same car as the one posted by bivin. its got silver side blades... 6:30 to 7:30 am is the best time for spotting on the Marina...
a legacy of parents teaching children to wake up at 6:30, maybe...

Default VW Beetle

Presenting to you, the first VW Beetle in chennai.

Should i say, it was wonderful. A masterpiece actually.

was only able to capture the rear pic. too much traffic.

nice photo ikoneer!

hmmm... people really seem to be digging the beetle - should be a good brand building exercise for VW. IMO, it looks hideous

I wish bmw brought the mini over to compete. If I was ever to buy a small 'niche' car in that price range only the mini would stir emotion in me

Yeah, this is not the first VW Beetle in Chennai. A blue TN registered was spotted way back in June 2007. Its posted here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/481089-post15.html

Also, the family of the famous garment showroom in Pondy Bazaar own one.

Was at the Marina today morning at 7:15 AM & it looks like I have missed it by a whisker. On the way back home I spotted a white A6 and was thinking that I was lucky until u blew me away by posting the R8 spotting!

If not the R8 , you are most likely to spot the Superleggera.
