Sweet! Beautiful cars there! I absolutely love the wheels on the 760Li! Oh and what's up with the A8's front grille? It looks like it belongs to an S8. Or is it an S8? The wheels don't say it though!

@nickatnite - GL's not there anymore, buddy...

@suhaas - I've always wondered about this car's grill too, its a subtle touch accentuating the car's beauty. Its an A8, there are some more pictures of it in better resolution elsewhere on the thread...

Nope that is a A8 W12 only. S8 has Quad exhausts.

A8 is W12 budd. V+V=W 6+6=12

Great find Sivasankar, Love the 7. And the rims are my favourite on the 7, the 20' Y spokes. Love it !

OT - I think the 7 is SWB. Or is it just me ??

Yup! I figured that. But what's with the grille then? And I'm sure that a lot of people would've been confused if the owner had opted for quad-pipes. The dual ones and the wheels are a sure giveaway!

OT - Yep, but the car is a looker nonetheless ! IMO the A8 is the best in Black. The Mafia Look !

Spotted a KL registered, canary yellow Toyota Celica GT at Besant Ngr Beach near Barista last night. The multi-spoked rims didn't gel with the car though.
