A DL SLK 350 in Chennai. Engine makes a nice growl but the car never takes off!

Read somewhere that the Bentley India Tour is coming to Hotel Leela Palace, Chennai.

I think the guy resides in Nerkundram just beyond their private bridge. If you seen the conditions of the road leading up to their property and the bridge the car has to negotiate!

I didn't know you could bring Dubai registered cars in India and on top of that it should be a left hand drive. As the only cars I have seen left hand drive are from the Counsalate cars.

Is there any such provisions in the customs to allow these cars here??

Should be interesting to know.

I think the same car was seen in Mumbai sometime back...

You can, temporarily, on Carnet.

Check out the imports in Kerala thread. Plenty of such cars there

This was spotted in Valsarawakam
Looks totally out of place! There are a lot of exotics here in Chennai but i believe that this is the first American muscle.

At the risk of receiving no acknowledgment for the "exotics spotted" pics I post here, here goes one more. Your acknowledgment of my efforts, motivates me, while total ignorance to my captures becomes a de-motivation, given the effort that goes into capturing them.

Before I'm branded a ranting aunt, here goes one more - clicked this Porsche 911 on Santhome High Road just 20 minutes back.

Good effort! That's the Targa 4S. There are only a handful of Targa's in the country, remember seeing one in Mumbai long time ago.

Governor Rosiah uses a black R Class. You can also catch a grey silver one near Somasundaram Ground, T Nagar.
