Its a TN reg car . TN ?? ?? 5???

ranjit, i have my doubts if it was an Aston Martin at all. Just checked out the rears of the DB9 on the internet, somehow get the feeling it was nowhere close to this.

In retrospect, I think it IS an aston. I remember the street lights' reflection on the glossy paint of the side profile.
PS: The guy was just trying to be fast. The gap between us and him was constant right until we took the turn.

The reason am sure it is the Aston was because of the brake lights.

Nitrous : dont think it was the jaguar either. The Jag has a chrome on the boot with its identity.

Have seen a lott of Mercs (C, E & S) with Bala Tourist Service near Valluvarkottam. Very nominal prices for a Merc experience...
