@nickatnite - That parking slot is a holy place. You can see a Ghost, the Bentley Continental Flying Spur (tasteful choice of color), the Jaguar XJ, the Rolls Royce Phantom, a new generation 5 series, an Audi A4 and the lesser Toyota Altis in turns there

Real looker, this! White suits it. From the looks of it the interiors are black - glad better sense prevailed here, unlike the red interiors the owner has on his Maserati

Thanks for the photos, nick!

White does indeed suit some of those big Mercs, BMWs, Audis, etc. They look great, but imagine how much greater they might look in a beautiful metalic or pearl finish. I mean the real metalic finish, the one that sparkles, not what gets passed off as metalic on the cheaper cars here.

The BMW mini was never as great a design as the original. I guess the original was, well, original, and how very different it seemed at the time. And, of course, it's German...

ofcourse i know it's German underneath but atleast the Mini's camouflaged well!. and, nothing to beat the original, i agree. This one below is true Brit and bespoke and absolutely stunning in person.

Obviously I don't know it, and red will not be my choice on the day that I sit down to discuss the specs of my mew supercar with the manufacturer, but if I have to live with red, Maserati red leather would be the best way to do it.

I suppose, red leather was once the classic choice.

Had been to the Aston Martin Vanquish / Mini Cooper event today....

Will post the pictures later this evening. Wish Indian manufacturers engineered their exhaust pipes for a tone like the Mini's...

Default Vanquish visits Chennai

Here are the pictures. I'm sure you all will understand why I didn't take photographs of the Mini brothers or sisters (as some would like it). My son was very upset that I missed them.

Beautiful color combination on the bicolore . Much better than his Maserati IMO . Saw it zoom past outside zara's a couple of weeks back , brilliant sound even though it wasn't being caned ! Saw the F10 M5 a few minutes later and it sounded so subdued in comparison !

A couple of significant others... kicking myself for missing the front-up shot of the CGT. What a presence!
