Both are mobile cam pics.

Jags and Land Rovers have become quite common in Chennai now. I am yet to pay a visit to their showroom in C-in-C Road.

Saw the Jag XJ a few weeks back very close to the pictured location in Nandanam. Was moving fast and left behind traffic. Amazing with the DRL's.

There is also a silver Prius which I see regularly near a well known hospital few hundred meters from this spot.

I keep seeing that Prius on a daily basis near Camp Road Junction !

Anyways did anyone observe a Bronze Panamera which fell into a Ditch on the Busy Tambaram-Velachery Main Road 2 Nights ago ? It was raining cats and dogs and my friend called me to inform that he saw the Panamera which fell into a ditch on the side of the road close to the Selaiyur Police Station. Sorry no pics as my friend didn't risk taking out his mobile to snap it amidst pouring rain !

I definitely know what he is thinking now - "Darn, I should have bought the Cayenne instead!"

(Without any offences) a lott of learning on being shrewd ---- One ditched a Panamera but the other did not pull out his mobile fearing the rain!

I wanted to go to the spot myself but It was quite dark already and would have taken me atleast 45mins-1hr or probably more to get there from ECR/Thiruvanmiyur ! Hope the Porsche has made it out without major bruises to itself !

The Ferrari 458 shares the garage with the Rolls Royce Ghost and the SL600.
Apparently, the first 458 in TN.

I recognize these cars. They have been featured in 'The Hindu'. These belong to a husband and wife team of car lovers. Apparently they went to Germany to personally check out and buy the SL 600 V12. The Ghost was bought for the wife and she self-drives it.
