Spotted this American brute at the Ford showroom in Arumbakkam .. I must say, that's one mesmerizing rear end !

That's interesting. The car I saw does look uncannily similar to the one in the post quoted below:

It was auctioned away in January 2017. Given the lack of plates, it could indeed be the very same. I'm just speculating though.

Yet another first-generation Continental Flying Spur. It sure does stand out from the crowd, even in a shade as common as white:

The VW group sedan range, summed up in one pic :

I also came across this sweetly specced 718 Cayman. Hats off to the owner for parking with the spoiler up :

I'm happy that Ford offers the Mustang in a variety of vibrant hues such as this one; it helps break the monotony of an endless stream of white.

I'm even happier that there are many of these throaty V8s sprinkled all over the city, like Gems on ice-cream ! Dessert for the eyes and ears anyone ?

2018 BMW M5, spotted by my friend a couple of days back on Nungambakkam High Road. Is this the first one in the city?

Hey ecksreturns, sorry, but I'm not sure if it is unfortunately. I haven't lived in Chennai for a few years now, so it could be. If I'm not mistaken, it was used by someone in the Madras Piston Heads car club, so their facebook might lead to some clues - if you see any recent posts with it, maybe?

A little side note:
And to anyone that's interested (please do be), I've picked up a Sakhir Orange M6 Gran Coupe with Competition Pack (In America)! I've chronicled the experience on T-BHP.

It has been sold off from what I gather and the current whereabouts remain ambiguous. Interestingly, the E 63 was from the same garage which now houses Ecks' wicked ol' E92 M3!
