@suhaas307 bhai - Chennai has lost most of its supercars in one fell swoop

That has disappointed all our exotic car lovers greatly

A sad day in the history of Chennai's supercars. Hope good sense prevails and the Phantom, the Maserati, the Bentleys (all variants), Jaguars and Range Rovers are spared the fate of rusting in peace at the CBI / DRI yard among decrepit Ambassadors and Sumos. Amen!!!

At this rate, Chennai-ites will have to shoot pics of C and E Classes and post it here. Everything else will go to the Cars at the CBI yard thread .

@suhaasji. We don't have any cars to shoot right now as they have gone to the CBI yard. The Enzo in Dubai and now all the supercars in Chennai ! At this point, We will have to shoot BMW 3er and 5er , Audi A4 and A6 and Merc B,C and E

Cheers,

Achyuth

Not really, the 458 Italia, the Ghost ( at least 3 of them ), the famous yellow LP560, a music director's Bicolore LP560, etc are still out there.
There are many more, only 16 of them have been impounded.

That's great! Were they imported through Alex ?

So here I am, getting to work:

I think they have all been returned to the owners after taking an undertaking. Only the papers are with the authorities.

Even I guess they have have been returned to their owners after taking an undertaking that, they would produce their vehicles in courts or before the investigation agency when required.

Friend spotted a Delhi registered Ghost in Chennai today... In my opinion, the baby Rolls to have would be the Wraith...

And for my 100th post - Spotted this brand new Rolls Royce Phantom yesterday evening around 6: 40 PM.

Followed it all the way from Alwarpet to Nungambakam. Next to the Rolls I felt puny in my Linea . Apologies for the bad cell phone grade pictures.

A question to the forum members - How many other Phantoms are there in the city ?

I think at the least there would be 5 if I am not mistaken. One family owns 3(?) EWBs, plus a leading cement company owns one, and then this?
