Cool

For past several years i have been watching these exotics dumped at this petrol pump which i came to know belongs to the Pump owner,earlier there used to be a Golden colored Vintage Rolls-Royce parked right in centre of this lineup.Now the lineup consists of Carlsson Mercedes(next to Skoda),Pontiac Transam(Blue colord hiding behind) & Jaguar S type(next to Carlsson).Kindly excuse the pic quality as it was taken when i was travelling in BEST double decker(Essel-world ride)

Is that really a carlsson tuned Merc? Or is it just a bodykit? The cars don't seem too bad. The transam has been pictured before if I'm not wrong!

Thats a normal Mercedes C class and not a Carlson. Seen the cars plenty of times. The pontiac has been with him for sale for ages now. He got the car for peanuts and wants the moon for it and there are no takers. In the back he has a triumph frog eye as well.

I agree with speedy they even had a Porsche 944 long time back and also i have seen a Stretched 70s or 80s benz with them, was a bit weird, it had some extra space behind the rear door and then the boot. Was black in color. i m sure someone woudl have seen it earlier too. That Rolls is now parked at their farmhouse in Lonavala.

Yes the 944 and the w123 Limo and it was not modified but an original limo. He also had two other 123's normal cars and one was a 300 turbo diesel if i recall correctly. Yeah i have seen the Rolls Royce and if i remember right it was a Silver Spirit.

You get these after market Grills for the older C classes almost everywhere and they are not very expensive in comparrison to changing the look of the car and getting a higher price from an innocent client.

Default Cayenne S, Bentley and Triumph.

The Triump is the most exciting of the lot.

That Cayenne is UGLY!! The triumph looks really well maintained! But is this the correct thread to post the pictures since they are obviously not @ the same spot?
Are you sure its a Bentley? Looks like a Cadillac!

The Cayenne S belongs to a famous DJ and is butt ugly.
That is a Cadillac Brougham and not a Bentley X-Machine. The car has been featured on our threads before. There used to be three or four of them in Bombay.
The triumph belongs to a friend of mine and it used to be red in colour and after he restored it changed it to bottle green. He uses the car daily.

I had seen a similar Cadi in one of the petrol bunks near the Porsche show room ( not sure about the name of the road).That petrol bunk has a lot of imports parked of which most are vintage cars.

The Panamera is growing on me. It looks kinda menacing from the front, specially when its on the same page as the HIDEOUS Cayenne! :P
BTW isn't that a Range Rover in the last pic?

yep it is the Range Rover Supercharged. btw that 'hideous' Cayenne belongs to the same owner as all these exotics. Have seen it couple of times at the HDIL office.
