Here you go. Did not have camera at that time, so the blurry photos. First photo is of a Maserati GT. And the Rapide had the number 007!

Doubt if a test car would be MP regd, instead of MH temp. But one would never know...

Manish, you made my day. Those are some stunning pictures of those gorgeous British machines. So, this would be Aston's second showroom in the country.. Nice!

Amazing pics manish and jagxf. The Rapide looks stunning. The wheels are a work of art on each Aston. Is Chennai going to have the second Aston Martin showroom in the country? Or these cars are a part of display cars for the prospective customers? AFAIK, Delhi will get the second showroom.

Hi sir, did check on the driver, though I do not know how jagxf looks, the person driving it was alone and was driving very very slowly.
Also, I thanked you by mistake. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Chennai is not getting an Aston showroom yet .
It was just a private viewing.
And Jagxf@Team-BHP test drove it this morning ,
so must have been someone else driving it last evening.
