I think it belongs to somebody in my old School.
You will see it on Neapensea road quite often but mostly in a garage.
Will try to get better pics.
The car is Chaeffuer driven and the owner does not look like a car freak.

At first it looked like a cheap modified car with that design on the side of the car, but the skirts are awesome and well made.

The car looks good from the front. ComfortablyWacky, do you have any pics of its front?!

Seen this car before, twice ... and lambo is right on one part that its mostly driver driven and the front looks like Aston Martin-ish.
I think I told to Stratos about this car long time back.

have been seeing this car since atleast a decade . it s parked in a garage a little after priyadarshini park towards walkeshwar . the owner i think has an office in fort as i have seen this car parked in the pay and park at main fountain quite a few times .

would have been more pleasing if it was a better colour .

does anyone have the specs for this baby though ?

You're right about it manson.Even i've seen this car parked there a few times.Its in a horrible state though.At first,i always ignored it thinking its a modified car or maybe another DC creation.But got to know about it just a few days back.
