The red is a brilliant colour for the GTR different and real sporty. Narain has been quick in making up his mind. I dont know how true it is, as i was informed that Nissan has given the car as payment against some contract. Duty was paid by Narrain.

@wolffe. I have seen that FTO too in a petrol bunk opposite pachayappa's college.

More importantly saw a brand new black Rolls Royce Silver Ghost on Sunday near my house on the P.H.Road near Maduravoyal. Was speeding away on the opp direction, could not get a shot.

A Silver ghost?
You meant Rolls Royce Ghost right?

If its black then it should be the second one in the country, the first one being exhibited at delhi supercar show.

There's a difference between a Silver Ghost and a Ghost. Here's to clear up the confusion
This is a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

Posted the link to the Ghost, inspite of you all knowing how it looks like, because I absolutely adore the car.

The Silver Ghost is one of the world's most cherished vintage exotics!
