He probably bent a rim, or is using the enkei as the spare tyre, the driver shooed me away before i could get a look at it, i myself saw it only in the photo.

I spotted a shining, gleaming, sparkling white Passat the other day. And it really did gleam too; I culd almost feel the depth of the paint.

OK, so a Passat might not count with you guys as being exotic --- but it works for me! :

@shivred

Great snaps, man! I just love the wheels of the S500, the only other 500 I've seen in Chennai is the white S of the Park Sheraton promoters, it runs no taxi plates...

I've been seeing the red Evo VII for 3 yrs, it has always had the OZ rims and I wasn't sure whether it was an original Evo or an early model Cedia modified with keen attention to detail.

I saw the red Rangie on the road, awesome sight, I couldn't figure out what the license plate, it would be a good idea to post a shot without masking it so that someone on T-Bhp can give us more information...

Guys, as for the Toyota Cera, I'm informed that a lot of these cars were dumped on India from the Eastern Countries where it had flopped but Indians had a thing going for the scissor doors & sports car looks although it wasn't a performance car . I remember Actor Sarathkumar, Vijay & others used to own it. And who can forget Ramya Krishnan's entry sequence in Padayappa

Isn't a FTO a Mitsubishi?. Nice to see the latest domestic cars and a good measure of imports/exotics in Chennai.

It's a CL55 AMG which used to be owned by a person in Mumbai earlier.
