You guys need to make friends with the driver of the Flat bed truck!
Btw, is the A6 an escort car for the W16 ? Or is it used by the owner after dropping off the Veyron on the flat bed? He could have easily used one among the countless Bentley's that he owns for that purpose!
I'm sure one of you guys will eventually manage to snap the elusive Veyron soon. Good Luck.

Seems Hyd BHPians are all game for snapping the Veyron. Good work ShortShifter and hats off to your petrolhead friends too. Hope the wait pays off and we see some pics of the Veyron in a few hours.
Thanks //M, yeah all my previous sources were refusing access to the Veyron. Some even stopped replying to my texts. Or else would have had a photoshoot of it by now since the owner lives 4kms from my place. Nevertheless we'll keep trying.

Thanks PPS, yeah I was hoping he would use the Bentley's or the S65 AMG as an Escort ! Nevertheless all of us would maintain a strict vigil trying to find the find the Veyron. Remember there is one more headed our way, so that just doubles our chances to spot atleast one of them in the City.

Oh my gosh the White XFR has got itself some great shoes, the last time I saw it they had those stock wheels on it, must have changed it recently ! By the way It belongs to the Lanco Guys.

And Double Whammy, you got a chance to get some interior shots of the CFS as well ? Awesome bro, beautifully captured as always ! I think this White CFS belongs to the same persons who own a Maroon EWB Phantom and a Navy Blue Rolls Royce Ghost. AFAIK they have two more Bentleys in the family, not too sure about it though.

He always thought people in mumbai/delhi would beat their collection. he also told me that the bugga (that's what they call it apparently ) is only driven by Vijay Reddy and he hardly ever gets a chance to take it out due to the obvious complications which we all know. Im gonna pay him a visit this saturday...I will keep you guys posted if i get a glimpse of the beast.

About the black murcie, heard that it is in vijaywada at the moment.
Thanks once again for the updates straight from the horses mouth. You sure are an Asset to the Hyderabad thread. Eagerly awaiting some heavy duty pictures from you !

His business is spread across the entire AP, and vijaywada is his home town

He is there for temp purpose only...you can catch a glimpse of the car during the nights in M.R puram after 11pm. I cannot give you his address there unfortunately.

Its a Honda Beat. A red Honda Beat was screened in the Bollywood flick, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai in the initial few scenes.

It looks too small compared to the black BMW X5 in the first pic.

OT - The Beat featured in KNPH is a car from one of the most reputed garages in Kerala. They saw the car when it was taken to Mumbai for service and someone from the senior crewmen saw the car and wanted it to be Amisha's car in the movie. This was told my the owner in one of his interviews on Television

I'd seen a white/silver Honda Beat at a car-exibition in Bangalore, not long ago. Cute car, but unbelievably small. Almost like a pedal car with a motor and fully functioning interiors

Yup, and not to mention the dozens of Toyota Seras and Mazda MX-5s. I've seen plenty of them. And of course, the odd MR2, Supra and the Mtsubishi FTO. Ah, the '90s. Good memories.

Spotted White Bentley Arnage RL at Nagarjuna Circle, a Chocolate Brown AP26 Registered Jag XF, Brand New Black Jag XF S on temporary plates and a Green Jag XF all on Raj Bhavan Road within a span of 15 minutes just a while ago. Sorry wasn't carrying my cam today so no pictures.

this thread is buzzing! was it on 8th that the veyron was spotted? i was on the ORR near the place where the road become a valley (huge hills on either side). was doing 230-240kmph on an R1 and all of a sudden, i was overtaken by a light coloured car travelling easily above 300kmph! i immediately slowed down mainly due to shock more than anything and decided to increase my speed again but i didnt see it!

p.s. i do NOT know what car it was but it certainly is a light colour, maybe ivory/cream!

Yeah that was the Whitish/Creamish Bugatti Veyron Grandsports indeed which you saw, my friend saw it at the same place too, he was on a Black Mercedes E270, tried chasing it down at around 230kmph but sadly he couldn't find it. A couple of Bhpians along with me tried hunting it down till late into the night but in vain.

Anyways guys Taj Falaknuma Palace is the place to be tonight, if would want to spot the best of best Exotic cars of Hyderabad. Apparently since most of you guys are aware, one of the Most High Profile weddings of 2011 is all set to happen tonight and Who's who of the Country are known to be attending the Wedding !

^^^ Maybe no two doors, but it will be stinking exotics there. I think tonight might be a good opportunity to snap the Veyron .


Any one of our carparazzis willing to snap some pictures there?

Could snap it or not but VRR is using the Veyron to almost its full potentials for sure. That's what most most of the Veyron owners around the globe doesn't do. Cheers to him for that

OT - @therealabs - Your signature got me confused here. The 740d isn't available in Indian market. You mean to say either 730Ld or 740Li? Or you own the car abroad?
