This is the Hyundai Tiburon also known as the Coupe.
Not exactly an "exotic" sports coupe though.

@bivin

The Hayabusa rocks. I've seen it on the road. A couple of 'usual suspects' below. The Germans have invaded the import car scene in Chennai, it seems. We need some variety, don't you think?.

besides, these are all over the place. i see atleast 2-3 7series and x5's a day.
funny thing is, the(more expensive) X5 is more common than the x3. that is my observation atleast.

^^ Ya man , Mercs and beemers are fairly common and don't really qualify as an Exotic ! I agree, they cost a bomb but you see soo many everyday .

Lets just stick to the real imports and exoctics .

As a matter of fact u did spell his name correctly. He has been spotted in an Ariel Atom but i don't think its his. Its belongs to that Raymond bloke.
Beemers have become so common place nowadays you can't really count them as exotics

Narain Karthikeyan picked up the blue porsche 911 from Chennai, a year or so back.
I guess he's hanging on to it,right now. Can someone confirm?

Don't know about the 911; He had a Safari Dicor (given by Tata).
