Exactly; this is the builder's car. Wish he had gone for regn no:458 instead of his regular no:630.

Heard that he has a C63 AMG too; Can anyone confirm?

@Jai: No, this garage is in Nerkundram, near Maduravoyal.
vivriti, you're right, except that they went to the Rolls Royce factory to pick up the Ghost.
There's also a W220 S-class in the garage.

Not sure what this is - nor whether it deserves to be in this thread. (May be a modified car, but it had good finish, though no badges!)

Anyone can identify this car?

Thanks guys!

Spotted this old Z3 today. Might not be 'hot' anymore, but a decent looker still! Didn't look to be that well maintained though! Warning - mobile cam pic.

Isn't that the ex-Sunny Deol SL500 which was owned by a bhpian later?

Was he from Chennai?

It's very hot, in a wonderfully classic way.


And I speak as the guy in this thread that doesn't like sports cars! I wouldn't say no to this one if it got accidentally abandoned on my drive

This is the same car. The bhpian owner had mentioned it was for sale as he was shifting from Bombay. I dont know if he sold the car or has taken it with him.

I agree. Although, I'd get rid of those wheels and get new and better ones. The Z3, somehow, manages to charm you. I've seen a few in person, and they look quite different in photographs.

I see that car on the ECR/Thiruvanmiyur area quite often, it was standing at a Bhpian's Garage on ECR for quite sometime.

Anyways spotted a White E93 BMW M3 with its top down in front of the Thiruvanmiyur RTO, a Black AP registered R350 was following from close behind, the M3 had beautiful black on tan interiors

I wish I could 'Thank' you more than once!

Absolutely brilliant capture! We need more pictures, Manish. Crossing my fingers and hoping there was (or is) a photo-shoot of these cars on the ECR (on the cards)?
