While I am not concluding what version of CFS are those that I spotted today, this is what I could the get from the web....

Ref 1) Flying Spur Speed, differentiated by the dark-tinted radiator and air intake grilles, wider rifled exhaust tail pipes and unique 20-inch multi-spoke alloys.

Ref 2) The new GT Speed is visually distinguished by its slightly larger, more upright, darkly finished grille; the lower lip is also larger.

Ref 3) It's hard to tell the Speed from the regular Flying Spur, because visual differences are very subtle. In the front the chrome radiator grille is now more vertical with a squarer edge, the headlights are surrounded by chrome bezels and the colossal air intakes are now wider and more prominent with a black matrix pattern to give the Speed a totally menacing look. The rear sports a redesigned bumper with wraparound chrome trim, chrome tail lamps bezels and a pair of wider sport exhaust tail pipes.

The easiest way to differentiate between the FS and the BFS would be the rims.

Those are not mods.That's the stock front bumper of the old CFS.In my last post,I compared the Speed with the old CFS.My bad!

The newer ones are pretty hard to distinguish from the front though,the only give-away being the subtle chrome bezels around the head-lamps.The rims give it away from the side,and at the rear,the Speed has larger and a more oval pair of exhausts.

Looks like a wonderful collection -- Today morning there is a green Audi & a purple S-Class at the same location.

Great pics as always Manish. The RX looks kinda ugly IMO. No offence though.

@mlcarrera : You have great taste! I am not particularly a POKERian but I love your car. Its got road presence, it makes a great noise, its got "red" brake callipers and yet its so subtle. Great car and great choice!
