The bravo? When?

I know of a red F430 coupe belonging to the movie production house.

Aren't you aware of the fact that it was sold here? Only in limited numbers? hardly anyone bought it because of its price. Fiat had plans of pushing out at least some 100 cars in India but they couldn't achieve even half of that target.

"White is right", but applies only to paintwork on cars. Even a X6 looks good in white!.

Correct sudhan. Simbu the first one who bought BMW X6 in chennai. He mentioned in his interview about this as his DREAM CAR and he bought it finally. It costs about a crore ..etc..

Are you sure? I had seen a two in Bangalore though. Both with to-be-reg plates on. Both were deepish maroon.

You could be right though. There are no adverts or anything to prove it. Just some reviews in automobile magazines (That's what I went by).

Haha! Yes I'm sure I didn't see the same car twice. One had no plates at all. The other one had yellow to-be-reg plates even on the rear windshield. The one with the yellow plates had really dark tints and the other one had no tints at all if I remember correctly.

P.S. And before anyone tries to correct me on my statement

in my earlier post, What I meant was that both of them were yet to be registered

i saw a jaguar s-type sometime last week near washermanpet (strange place to spot an exotic but still..)but didnt catch the registration due to the tall divider(it was moving in the opposite direction). unfortunately, no pics as i dont have my phone with me..
it looked like this and of the same colour.

@bivin - i saw the silver jaguar s-type yesterday evening just as it drove up the Adyar flyover, it belongs to the Ramachandra Medical College promoters. by the way, there's also another S-type sporting the British Racing Green colour

@nickatnite - You are always the first guy to snap an exotic if its seen anywhere in the Nungambakkam area. Guessing you shot the X6 the day before yesterday...

Yes the White X6 is Simbu's, however I doubt it is the first X6 in Chennai. I have seen a black X6 in ECR a couple of times almost a month ago. I think it belongs to Vijay.

Does Vijay own a X6? I think he owns a black X5.
