My bad then, never really took much interest in the Beetle, too much money for too little(no offense to anyone).
Saw a Blue Beetle just today morning along TTK road, no snaps as I was on my bike.

I guess the first place for anyone to visit once they have bought a supercar is the famous mans house. The one that started the chennai supercar group. Always glad to see the count of Ferrari's go up in the south.

Look what i found! Was on the way home from college when i spotted this. When i saw this at a distance, i thought it was a Bolero. But, when i got closer i realised that it was the Merc G55 AMG. Not sure whether it is the G55 Amg or the G550. The tyres were enormous. Looks kind of like after market ones. Posting a the pics that i asked my friend to click.

Of course a G Wagen with after-market shoes, but that's neither a 55, nor a 550, it is a W460 LWB from the 1980s, as can be identified by the rather conspicuous fuel filler cap at the rear. That's a really nice find!

Its not a G55 nor a G550, observe the fuel filler and of course cant miss the exhaust. This seems to be a G-Wagen 460 from the 80's.

Edit : AyAn, same pinch

Oh. But from 80s? You sure? The tail lamps and the indicators were LED ones. Were LEDs used in cars 30 years ago? I'm confused. The num plate reads TN-10-AD. The AD series are the ones that were issued in Aug-Sep 2011. Is this a new vehicle or was it imported and registered recently?

No doubt thats a earlier gen 460.Sharp eyes Ayan.I am sure with the recent rise in popularity of the G55,the owner decided to cash into the craze and decked it up with aftermarket LEDs lights from the newer versions.The lights housing are the same.I wish though he had left it as it was.

Very cheeky owner, indeed.

Spotted a black Hummer H2 with Dubai plates at an ICE centre on Lloyds road. No pictures as the brute was parked inside the service area
