saw some good cars in chennai a couple of days back
one beautiful bentley (brand new) Delhi registered.

one Black Jag XFR i think - MH Registration

and one new Range Rover (Black) at the airport.

chennai certainly seems to have its share of grand vehicles - I know it always had a very large number of seriously fancy cars even 20-30 years ago, but these were amongst a small number of discerning enthusiasts. I guess it is just that now, these cars seem to be much more in evidence since so many more people seem to have access to big bucks and are able to splurge on their passions! All in all, a very good thing in my book!

@mlcarrera

Sir, any updates on the Porsche showroom opening in Chennai?.

This car is like a breath of fresh air after the overwhelming presence of German cars here.

I have to say I love the understated lines and the simplicity of the volvo s80.

Have to agree with you on that! Love the big bonnet bulge, gives it a muscly feel and look!
