This is the Bombay car that was once owned by a friend of mine.
Probably the tyre was punctured and had to change to the spare wheel. It also could be lighter aloys for the rear for track use only. I am only guessing.

This Bentley belongs to Apollo hospital owner and you can spot this often in Apollo hospital greams Road.

You can also spot a red Range Rover in the same area when you to take the exist from hospital to greams road.

I saw an blue Q5 in OMR road near Life line Hospital without number plates. I think it was heading towards the Audi service station in OMR.

Ah, yes, its the same one ! Theres a joke that goes "this particular car doesnt run on petrol....it runs on blood ". Of course, this is meant to be a joke and hopefully everyone takes it that way

im pretty sure they are spares. an acquaintance of mine had one of these in dubai and its spare wheel looked pretty much the same. i guess even the
e and s class come with similar looking spares.

P.S: isnt there another cl in chennai. my brother spotted one of another colour at the merc service centre on the way to Ambattur estate.

Not in India my friend. The reason i put the second option was that why would someone get the car on a spare wheel to race on the track? i also did mention i was only guessing about it being lighter alloys for the track. The rear tyre is also of a smaller configuration compared to the front one and can safely said to be a spare tyre.
