A few more to keep this thread alive.

Some repeats and some new entrants. GJ gets its 1st Wraith. Also the Bentley SUV in Ahmedabad for customer demo. Heard from a friend that many potential customers have shown interest and intact some even "requesting" the company to sell them the demo car.

Pics Credit : SIG, facebook page.

^^ That isn't the actual number of the Vanquish. The owner has conveniently deleted a couple of zeros from the plates! I've seen this happen on a number of cars recently, mostly imports.

The Ferrari F430 seems to have come to the country yet again on Carnet. Had spotted the same car in Jaipur back in December 2012. It has a crazy looking red and black interior with the red leather resembling snake's skin.

Here are a few pictures from 2012.

Some pics of the same car in its hometown. Probably at the launch of the 488 GTB in Moscow.

Spotted a black Ghibli last night on Drive-in Road.

Looks like a new entrant - the plates were a giveaway.

Fantastic road presence!

About a month and a half ago, I was in Surat and had an opportunity to spend some quality time with the Aston Martin Vanquish, all thanks a good friend (and the owner of the car)
Now personally, I am huge Aston fan. One might say that their tech and engines are dated but in my opinion, Astons have a strong personality which most modern day cars lack and that very factor makes up for all the flaws that it may have. Makes up for them very very well, at that. The DBS has always been an all time favourite, I still remember ogling at ecksreturns's Lightening Silver DBS back when he bought it. I was obsessed with that machine, so much so that I still have posters of that car in my study
So, it is a no brainer that getting a go in the successor (of sorts) of the DBS, the Vanquish, was quite an event for me. To begin with, the V12 sounds glorious. Loud, throaty and hairy-chested. Won't even bother typing about the way it looks. Sexy, is one word that defines this car. The way the lines and curves flow on this car and those sculpted hips, aaaaah! That Skyfall Silver paintjob looks bloody brilliant in all light and with all that carbon fiber, it fits really really well on this shade. And once on the road, the car is surprisingly comfortable for a sports car. While it feels firm, it still manages to waft very very well on the road. Like a true GT car, it cocoons the occupants in comfort while doing astronomical speeds. And the cabin, being 6ft 3in, I was really really comfortable in it. Having been stuffed into an Aventador once and having been a 458 too once, this was one roomy cabin!

We cold started the car and I did try making a video of the same, but not too satisfied with the way the phone mic picked the sound up. Have attached the video anyways. And after some hard revving without realising that we were low on fuel, we ended up at the nearest fuel pump to tank her up with a little normal fuel to help us get to the pump that stocked 97 Octane which was a little way off. When we asked the attendant to tank it up with "200 rupay ka petrol" his reaction was hilarious! Made a video of the same, attaching it below, for kicks

All in all, some cars are about the experience and not just the 0-100 time. Alongside the DBS, the Vanquish definitely remains a thorough favourite!
Some day.. sigh!

Attaching a few pictures below along with a couple of videos for your viewing pleasure. Pardon my pathetic photo-taking skills and I know that these pics do no justice to the car, but we have a full blown photoshoot of this car coming up. Shall post those pictures as soon as I can. And yes, we did spot a Porsche Panamera from the Vanquish.
The Mahindra Thar seen on one of the pictures is built by Mahindra themselves on commission. Mahindra calls it the DayBreak but this particular one is christened the Tharmageddon. That thing managed to get more attention on Surat roads than the Vanquish itself!

PS :: A huge shoutout to my buddy for having me over! And just incase you happen to know who I am talking about, please keep it quiet

Guys, don't you have trouble negotiating wrongly constructed speed breakers and bad roads?

Surprisingly we didn't! The big ones were crossed at an angle but the regular ones did just fine.

Spotted this brand new yellow Ford Mustang at Sugar and Spice near Navsari yesterday. It was cruising with red Audi TT.

Saw this on Safedhaathi's instagram.

Caption reads: "The Thakore Saheb of Wadhwan State in his self assembled Cobra."
