I don't remember the registration. Saw the car in R A Puram. I have a feeling it was TN registered but not too sure.
It's a TN registered car belonging to a famous garage.

Spotted the 911 heading towards alwarpet after taking the left past the malar hospital bridge.

Regarding Car Cares, there was some roadworks going on just outside the store, but it's been completed since. Most exotics go here simply because they want the best service possible and there's no better place in Chennai from my personal experience.
Guess the few exotics which don't go here haven't tried the place out.

I spotted a KA-reg Honda Beat roadster near Taj Coromandel last night. It was really tiny!

This is one of the most interesting cars I've ever come across in Chennai . Apparently, this 660cc kei car is one of the smallest mid-engined cars to be produced, designed by Pininfarina, and was the last car to be personally signed-off by Soichiro Honda.

The one I saw was modified quite a bit. It had really big tyres and a nice-sounding exhaust.

Found these pics which I clicked way back in 2010-11 during my stay in Chennai.
I know the MR2 has been posted earlier but has this Supra also featured here before?

Spotted a red Audi R8 on Anderson Road near British Embassy in Nungambakkam last week. Suprisingly, there were no registration plates on that one.

Spotted the all new S Class on Cathedral Road today. It was black/greyish black and didn't (unfortunately!) stand out from the sea of cars surrounding it. In fact, there's more theatre in the all new E than the flagship S.

That might be just what the owner wanted. I'm sure a lot of people buying that kind of car don't actually want to stand out.

(Hey, perhaps they should have bought Maruti then )

Was in chennai over the weekend. Was staying at Connemara and there was a bluish silver S500 new generation standing there on all three days.

Also spotted the famous music directors gallardo on RK Salai Road late night on Monday. Driven very sedately and carefully.

Spotted the all new S-CLass a few minutes back on the GST near Kathipara flyover. Looked stunning in Black colour first time spotted it in flesh. It seriously looks straight up in the class of Bentleys. Anyone else spotted this before?

It had the initial launch edition alloy design, but couldn't see which variant it was.

If it was the launch edition, then it should be the S500.

It was available in black too. I remember seeing pic of a black S500 LE in the Kolkata thread.

Spotted a Mini Cooper S last Saturday at Ekayers, T. Nagar. A minute later, a vintage car came in. I had no idea on what the make of the car was. It looked more like a limo. There was a glass partition between the front and rear seats. The rear seats had acres of leg room. It looked so big that one can sit on the floor and play carrom.
