@nickatnite: Nice pics! The car looks really cool, especially the front end. Could use better rims though.

OT: What camera phone do you use sir? The quality of the pics you shoot seem really nice .

Doesn't look like it has the AMG package. Those wheels don't look like AMG wheels.
@nick: Nice pictures. The GTO looks very well maintained
@thad e .. : Which roundup are you talking about?
@jagxf: Please let the E-coupe be your next new car. Waiting (im)patiently!

The coupe is a normal car and not an AMG or AMG package. They dont do packages in India, Its either the real deal or stock. I kind off like the car with the optional wheels used for the Launch of the coupe. Gives it a more sporty look.

That merc is indeed beautiful.

shamik.bose, I guess my question referred to the whole thread: what's the most expensive car spotted in Chennai!

(There must be a few that cost more than that blue Wagon R )

yep there's a yellow Murci in chennai, pictures of which have been posted before.
I reckon the most expensive car should be the Phantom.

Oh I forgot about that! It is undoubtedly the costliest car in the state, maybe even in the country I'd say!

There's a yellow LP640 in Chennai. If there's a Phantom, then that must be the most expensive car in the state. But its not most expensive one in the country. There are couple of Maybachs in India!

Goodness! Well, I'm happy to pin my crazy daydreams at the Bentley level!

My general observation in that there seems to be a lot more obvious money in wheels on the Chennai streets. Only a few years ago, a BMW used to turn my head, just the other day a BMW 5 series didn't seem out of place.

More rich people? Or the younger generation not wanting to do the hide-in-an-ambassador thing?

The coupe looks really awesome. Wish they AMG let loose on this vehicle.
And about the most expensive cars , there is an Arnage as well (though not as expensive as the phanthom) more exclusive because there are more than 4 phanthom's. But all that is going to change . Heard of a Mulsanne coming to Chennai soon meaning real soon..
