Going by the number plate, there's a high probability that it is a famous white scooby that was earlier owned by two BHPians that has been repainted to the blue that it now is.

Ran into 2 classy BMWs today - a maroon new generation 640d around noon & the latest M5 late in the afternoon. Coincidentally both were HR registered. Managed pictures of just the M5 as I spent all the time drooling over the 640d who was stuck in traffic in the lane next to me. The M was a couple of cars ahead of me but the roars of the engine. Yeah!

By the way, are these cars just visiting Chennai?

That's a great catch!!!
I once spotted the previous generation Wide body M5 in front of Saravana Bhavan, Pondy Bazaar. Guess that was the Saravana bhavan's owner's car!

Friends, do you observe the black Safari in front of the M5? The same car was around when I saw the 640D earlier too.

Did anyone spot the black Aston outside The Park this morning?

Both are company/demo cars & i guess they were in Chennai for the Annual Track day of Autocar.
Hormazd Sorabjee tweeted this pic a couple of days back.

Btw, that 550-2 demo car is listed for sale at Auto Hangar,Mumbai along with the ex-Chennai Granturismo.Saw the ad in todays TOI.

Spotted a 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid(American version i believe) near Gill nagar, Nelson manickam road.
This is the second time i'm spotting this car in my area. It was coming in the opposite direction so, couldn't take the pictures. So, here are the two pictures of the car that i took from the internet to give you guys a clear idea of what i spotted!

Honda did sell the Civic Hybrid here in India but that should be RHD.
