Haven't driven much of big sports car so can't really compare lol but it was awesome. Did couple of 0-140 runs in isolated empty roads. Steering was very good but at the same time very light, even with huge tyres ride was good. Acceleration is mind boggling, what do you expect with 450bhp V8 . About feature etc I was way too excited to try anything apart from seat adjustment. Exhaust note was amazing. I am still not able to believe I drove a RS5 .....

Sweet! I guess this is the same one that was in the Showroom - saw it in July. Absolutely love the RS5 - it's just so appealing!!!

Why do I have a feeling, that Matte M3 was polished !! If I am not wrong the matte colour should not be polished or else is becomes shiny and defeats the purpose of the Matte effect !!

Oh god, that's a really horrible stretch of road to find your way thru.

and also it looks like he was completely on the other side of the road jus like what the MTC bus or share auto does on that bit of road.

That's a horrible stretch indeed. Can be crowded at early and late hours too.

Interestingly, I keep seeing all sort of cars at this stretch. Usual Q7, Beemers to TLC, R8 and recently a white XC90.

Totally agree with you two. This road is such a pain to drive at, wonder how these Cars manage to drive without suffering from a heartache or two. Spotted a red TLC V8 on this stretch of road recently.

Post re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

What a day, spotted two 911's on the ECR within a span of a couple of minutes, RR Autobiography, and the 007 Aston Martin Rapide on the OMR at around 5:45PM parked next to Dominoes/Cafe Coffee Day. The owner was revving it quite hard, What a beautiful car indeed, the exhaust note was even better, made my day literally !
