Spotted a Black Crysler 300 near Municipal Market on CG road. the car was MP or MH registered. It was in opposite direction and hence couldnt get pics or get a clear view of the registration plate.

There is also a new M6 in town. Saw it in the parking lot of owners office and so no pics. But i have been invited to the owners residence to check out the cars he owns. From what i remember from our last meeting, he owns AUDI Q7, BMW 5 SERIES, BMW M6, AUDI A4 and a couple of other Civics and accords and a vintage Dodge which is in 100% working condition.

I cant promise pics from the visit but i will surely try to get some and post them here if the owner permits.

Harshal please could we have pictures of the A class and the Beetle convertible.

There is a Sliver convertible beetle with a Black top or Dark blue top for sale in Bombay with the Shreyans secondhand showroom. Please could you check if the car you talk off is still there or is the one thats up for sale now.

@speedy

there are 2 convertible beetles spotted by me in Ahmedabad.If my memory serves me right one was a CH registered vehile which was a better maintained vehicle and i have seen it on road quite a few times. Pics of same are attached.

The 2nd pic is of the silver convertible parked for ages at Chirag Auto and i am pretty sure its still there. Will get an update on A class soon. A class is generally driven by a late 60's male who i believe is a partner or a friend of owner of Chirag auto as he is usually spotted there in the evenings everyday.

Also spotted a white freelander yesterday. But it was on the other side and it was raining, so didnt get a clear pic of the same.

guys,

Did anyone know there is a porsche center here in Ahmedabad? Was just reading the August issue and saw this info in the Cayenne S advert. I think they operating as a alliance office but surely are in plan for dealership and service center soon.

seeing quite a few BUGS around. Over the last weekend i came across 2 X yellow, 1 X RED, WHITE & BLACK. All newer ones.

@SPEEDY the silver convertible bug still resides here only, as i saw it on sunday afternoon. So the car on sale must be a different one.

Out of all the could only manage a crappy pic of the Black one.

Default This Diwali, luxury drives to your doorstep

Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover, Ducati And Harley To Sell In Gujarat


Ahmedabad: If you are planning to buy luxury on wheels, wait till the festive season. Three more car and two motorcycle brands are set to spoil you for choices. These include Porsche, Jaguar and Land Rover among cars and Ducati and Harley-Davidson among motorbikes. Already, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW have showrooms in the city.
Supported by new entrants, sales are likely to cross 1,000 cars per annum in Gujarat. Half of this would be absorbed by Ahmedabad alone. Until two years ago, only 70-odd premium cars were sold in the entire state.
While Kataria Motors — primarily a Maruti dealer — is setting up a Porsche outlet, industry sources say Tata Motors is a about to pick a dealer for its UKbased premium brands Jaguar and Land Rover. Of over 150 aspirants, the company has short-listed five. The soon-to-be-announced winner will spend around Rs 20 crore on showroom and workshop.
Sanjay Thakker, CMD of Benchmark Cars, dealers of Mercedes-Benz, said, “Between January and July this year we sold around 200 cars. The luxury cars industry in India, and Gujarat, is expected to grow at 60%.”
“Until a couple of years ago, there were only 70-75 Mercs being sold in Gujarat. No other luxury car was available locally. Now, we hope to easily cross the figure of 200 for BMW this year,” said Talah Sareshwala, CEO and MD of Parsoli Motors, which sells BMW in Gujarat. Rustam Cama of Cama Motors is gung-ho about luxury on wheels. “We have already frozen 20 Ducati motorcycle bookings, as these are madeto-order bikes in the price bracket of Rs 8 lakh to Rs 50 lakh. Fresh buyers will have to wait for two months,” he said.
“There are plans for Kolkata, Chennai outlets and then there are plans for Gujarat along with Jaipur, Indore and Pune,” a senior official from Harley-Davidson (India) said confirming their Gujarat plans.
