@ Harshal : GJ-18 it is. And yes we both are referring to the same guy I've seen the black Rangie parked on CG Road opposite to the Choice Restaurant lane many times - actually almost everyday. Will try to post a pic ASAP.

Harshal, which Jag you have spotted XF or XJ?? pls try to capture it in camera. This is a nice change in Gujarati people to have a Jag instead of Merc!! wow(if it belongs to a Gujarati and I hope so)

Hi hiren,

It was a XF. White one was posted by me earlier. This is owned by my friends neighbour.

Black one is owned by a builder, chances of spotting it outside their corporate house opposite Gulmohar Mall. There is a silver and a creamish one too. I saw the creamish Jag parked near Hotel Inder Residency on several occasions. Once I tried to click it but sadly the guard asked me to not to.

There is also a JLR dealership opening up soon in Ahmedabad, so some cars could be theirs if at all the dealer has been appointed.

Harley Davidson & Ducati will also soon be here, Harley is about to select a dealer and Ducati I believe is with CAMA Motors. Also Ahmedabad had one of the first customers for the SLS AMG, any idea if the car is delivered?

Wow this is news! Do you know who's getting it or was it in the papers? Have seen the one at the Auto Expo in golden. I hope this one's a better color.

Hi, no this was through one of the managers working there, also know for a fact that it was the first or one of the first confirmed orders.

Nowadays all auto majors are gearing up for Ahmedabad as they can loose a big money if they are not present in Gujarat, JLR (also RR), Porsche all are setting their centers in Ahmedabad. Is Porsche Center activated here, anybody has idea about it?

SLS AMG? Now thats some news. But not surprising. As Hiren said, almost all major auto giant is stepping into Ahmedabad. Harley is still not sure and as of now are planning to operate out of Mumbai dealer. Gujarati's are more into cars than bikes. May be it will take some time. Few days ago @AVR & me saw a ducatti on SG road.

@Hiren the porshce center is still not up but from what i was informed by a friend ( who is a porsche owner) that it should be up and running by diwali. We will be seeing lot of swanky cars soon in Ahmedabad. But the Million $ question still remains unanswered "WHERE ARE THE ROADS?"

@h@r$h@l

if gujrat doesn't have roads, then my friend there is absolutely no state in the entire country which has any sort of roads.

I had been to gujrat about a year back, ahmedabad - mount abu - bhuj, and if you ask me, they were the bestest roads in India I have ever seen. though what was irritating was the lack of any kind of traffic sense.

I agree with samyakmodi, Gujarat has the best roads in India but the least traffic sense.

Hello Guys,

Its been a while since someone updated this thread. Off late quite a few good cars have been spotted around. in last couple of days i came across the below:

1. White BMW X6 with black wheels.
2. Black Porsche (not the SUV, dont know the model)
3. Red SLK
4. Couple of Z4 (white, grey, black)
5. Black 650i
6. New E Class convertible.
7. Black Jag.
8. Icy Blue Fiat 500.
Name:  blue 500.JPG
Views: 1991
Size:  17.8 KB
9. A Lincoln SUV. Black Color. MP reg. don't know model or anything. It was at quite a distance from me.

I am really sorry that out of all the above i could only get a not so clear pic of the Fiat 500. Also from the above the only new addition is the E Class convertible & Lincoln SUV. The rest have been spotted by me or other tbhpians before.

been spotting a lot of 7 series, Q7 , X5 etc. Dont even bother to click them now as they are way to common here now.

From what I remember of my 2 year stay in Ahmedabad, the roads are outside the city.
