I had been to Privilege Carz Spa at Nandanam yesterday to check out some auxiliary lights and I saw this beast being detailed: BMW 6 Maroon color. Didn't take pictures though.

What amazed me was the wheel size: 315/35R20 and I guess they were run flats. I've always thought BMW X6 deserved a tyre of this size. Mean, and nicely done

Does anyone have pictures of what I'm talking about?

Saw a black Jaguar XJ L pass by me on PH Road near Dr MGR University.

Unfortunately, I was so stumped by it that I chose to admire it than take pictures!

@nickatnite - Time for an Aston Martin list then

1) White V8 Vantage coupe (the one on the picture you have posted) - Music Director's.

2) Black / Dark V8 Vantage convertible - Classic car collector's.

3) Gray 007 Rapide - Hotel chain's

I'm sure there aren't any more in Chennai

@sivasankar - I thought the Rapide belonged to the Classic Car Collector, the one who lives in Kotturpuram.

Looking at the wheels, that looks like the N420 Vantage.

Nope, the Rapide belongs to the Hotel Chain. It carries their signature 007 number with the gun background.

There is no connection JayR. The backdrop is just a south Indian eatery abroad, the R8 is niether parked outside it or belongs to the owner of the place. This car is just driving past.
