I can't believe it never occurred to me ! Very well could be him! Good spotting, I can't believe Bugatti's number #1 driver who broke the record in the Veyron SS was in Hyderabad!
I always assumed it was the Exclusive motors guy and some technician from France hence the skin color.

Once again , good spotting Traveloholic! It's very interesting to know someone so synonymous with Bugatti around the world was in Hyderabad !

Haha, I wonder what he had to say about Hyderabad and how driving it in town was! Here's what you experience when you're given a test drive in a Bugatti by ze funny Frenchman.

I told you so, even though I missed seeing Veyron in person due to some reasons, I did get to notice him in the pics. ShortShifter was my man friday, kept me abreast about everything. Great going guys and the pics on Airport Road were amazing.

About the Veyron being spotted at Masab Tank, was told that it was driven by a lady. Could have been the Hyper Energetic Daughter of Mr. W16, or rather say was her for sure. When Miss W16 rips the LP like crazy, then who else would dare test drive it on Masab Tank Road.

Yessir, that is indeed Pierre Henri, and the gentleman riding shotgun (who later test drove) seemed to be really interested in the Veyron!(coz he spent an hour atleast discussing the car with Pierre Henri at the launch party)

I'd take one just like this, and it's good to see the owner opt for the proper chrome-paddles behind the steering-wheel, rather than the silly toggle-switches on the steering-spokes (up/down).

Although, I'd still have a proper 6-on-the-floor arrangement.

So you've finally started water-marking your pics! Should have done that long back 'coz your 'on-the-road' shots are unparalleled till date!
But still, better late than never!

Looks like the face-lifted XK-R, bring them on!

Default re: Supercars & Imports : Hyderabad

Riding to office this morning, my eyes were torn towards a huge white limo on the other side of the road (close to Toyota Showroom near Kothaguda coming from Miyapur) - the front looked like a Bentley Conti or one of its variants, while the rear lights didnt look like one from a Bentley. I decided to take a U turn and head back for a pic. Just as I took a pic of the rear, the limo started off

Does anyone know of a Bentley in Hyd thats been stretched to a full sized Limo? Or did I make a mistake in thinking the front end looked like one. I could only see the modified rear when I stood next to it as it immediately drove off..

The wheels could give an indication whether it was really a Bentley.. If not, I've lost my first chance at producing something unique for this awesome thread!
