____ it happens!

No sight of any imports in Marina today morning. I would call it the dry'est day ever at Marina. All i could see from 6:10 AM till 8:15 was a 330 D & a couple of E class.

Am I the most unluckiest guy here ?

and Manish the most luckiest person bcoz, u come all the way from Bangalore, go to the Marina, see the Lambo, chat with the owner and do have a great camera when all this happens!

The hunt continues....

Hello Team!

Couldn't make it to the Marina today because of a bad cold.

Does anyone know the owner of the R8?

@bivin - It was the same one you spotted. didn't expect to see it so soon.

@rubicon - Eager to explore your idea. If members are familiar with the usual sighting times and locations on ECR and OMR, we can plan it further. Am ready

@shivred - the car wasn't registered but I am sure what its going to be

@foby - Thanks, man. I'd returned from Salem at 6am yesterday and left for the Marina immediately, guess it was instinctive...

well if its the same one i spotted, then its a company car. as i said before, it had red TN plates on. my brother spoke to the driver and he said it was a test car. so i guess no R8 owners in chennai as of yet.

although my friend did tell me that late at night, he saw a famous movie director driving a black/(or)dark grey r8. not sure about this though.

Is your friend a petrolhead Bivin? I know of people who've mistaken TTs for R8s.

@bivin - This particular car was driven by a young chap, he had a bunch of friends along. And there was no company rep around to demonstrate the car. The 3-series and the City that came along had 5*5 plates. The 3 had a personal chauffeur who was guiding the chap.

Do you know who owns the Audi dealership?

Yes Manish despite the morning Marina disappointment, not a bad day though. Spotted a new Teana 250 XL, ML320, Prado & the red XKR.

Low, wide and fat... unlike the German supercars, the XKR's body swoops back from the wheel arches to a trim rear... phew, substituted the actual word that should have come in place of 'trim' .. great find there, rubicon!

he isnt really a petrolhead. but the thing is one of our college senoirs owns an audi tt (the red one,pics of which have been posted here before). so since my friend sees a tt almost everyday, i guess he should be able to differentiate between a TT and an R8.

oh and btw, my friend said the r8 was white in colour and not black.
