yeah. i can confirm the orange hummer i have seen it once. and yeah i think you are right it belongs to the torrent power goup owner, and not mr adani.

i have also seen the black MR2. i see that near shambhu's cafe lolz i once saw a Q7 pulling over there, i said to my friend "you see that car thats worth 70 lacs" lolz and he could not beleive it. the look on the faces its priceless.

ahh just wish i could get my hands on these beauties.

A number of BPL's gather on Judgest Bungalow road jamming the streets by parking their Audi's, Merc's and Beemer's blocking half the street. Also saw a Honda S2000 once.

Bpl means BAAPA na paise leela lehar.( translated) - having fun at your fathers expense. :P

but i think most of these people are businessmen. they buy such cars not because they want the cars badly but they do it for accounts management. and depriciation in the books.

there are lots of crore pati gujjus. and they can be happy driving a wagon R--

but i think some poeple who have been to US (NRIs) have changed their taste and buy these mercs and bmws. its a status symbol now and it helps them in tax purposes.

I totally agree about the rich kids. There are some serious car enthusiasts who have good taste and truly deserve those cars.

Also spotted a Black Porsche Cayenne at Associate Petrol Pump on CG road. Couple of Range Rovers and also M Class seen near West Side near Law Garden.

A black Mitsubishi (2 door), don't know model, spotted Near CCD on Judges Bungalow Road.

Have recently purchased a Sony Cyber Shot, so hope to capture some nice pics of these beasts / beauty's.

That black Mitsubishi is an FTO. IT had a 'MH' license plate originally, but I guess its officially 'GJ' now!

Also saw a modified BMW. Had a wing spoiler, Sticker job and Grille job. That's the best I noticed at first glance.

Looks like we have a new candidate for the weird and whacky mod jobs page.

hey devarshi84. even i happened to spot that car near Karnavati Club a few weeks ago. Found out from a friend that car doesn't belong to Ahmedabad anymore. But cant really confirm that.

Also yesterday evening while on way home i spotted a Black Porsche Cayenne. Not sure of the specific model or REG details. It was on the other side of road. Also the driver of the car was cruising at very normal speeds. May be around 30 to 40 KMPH.

Volvo XC90 seen outside the Volvo Showroom and a MERC M CLASS parked at a car dealers place Nr. Karnavati Club. Often get to spot such cars there.Will try to get pics of the M class.

the Volvo showroom is just an alliance office for shreenath motors.
