Oh, thanks for the info buddy. So that is a different car right ?

OT - Is it a 350 only or better/bigger siblings ?

Ah, my bad. In fact, I live in the same building as them when I visit Bombay. Coulda sworn the 350 had those rims! As for the 500, it certainly has the above rims, so hence the mashup. The 500 is in a dark grey tone Scorcher - with rusted brake discs :/

The rest of the time they're where I am in gloriously wet London

Cool, would be nice to see a new addition. There aren't many great cars in the building to be honest.

That Merc crash is wicked. Any idea what caused it? Looks like it will be heading to the recycle bin! On a serious note: really hope the occupants were a-ok.

I dont think so, i think it will go all the way to the 'Trash Can'. Complete Write off ! If the owner is now sitting unscathed at home, he is most probably waiting for his new FL'd S. With a 'Big Grin' on his face. That is the sheer pull of an S Class(I personally being a Total Beemmer person, gotta accept that fact). Once S, always S !

That is so Sad! I had seen this RX8 when it was just brought in. Looks like the owner had kept the tyres stock. When did you spot this? Any idea as to how it happened?

Ouch !! that really should hurt the owner. The car seems pretty banged up in the rear. Any idea how this happened.? Seems like a result of sudden breaking.

Agreed Scorchy. This car was here in Bangalore. The pic is taken under the newly inaugurated "Silk board-Electronic city Flyover". I had spotted it a couple of months back. The same car, was running on stock tires. Have posted pics also. Was up for registration that time. Will put up a pic for reference.


Car was spotted in front of Empire Koramangla.
