Hey all! Over the last week, I spotted quite a few sweet rides, mostly in and around the Avinashi Road area:

1. A beautiful white 2016 Jaguar XF-R
2. 2 x 2016 Range Rover Sport
3. 2 x Range Rover Vogue
4. 2 x Porsche Cayenne
5. A superb blue Audi S4
6. Multiple Mini Coopers
7. Countless new Volvo XC90s. God they look gorgeous! Most were in white, but there was one in bright yellow !

Unfortunately, I don't have any pictures, as I spotted all of them whilst driving.

Oh, and I've been wondering, do any Italian exotics reside in Coimbatore?

Cheers!

I've been told by a local supercar garage owner/detailer there that the Lakshmi Mills family owns a pre-LP 560 gen Lamborghini Gallardo in yellow. Never seen the car or its pictures though.
However, I'm aware of a few 911s there. A couple Carrera S, one of which again reportedly belongs to Lakshmi Mills and a 997 Mark I turbo as well.

Even I have heard about a pre-LP Gallardo that has been spotted a couple of times in Coimbatore and Tirupur. Could be the same car.

I am not able to recall but the ex-Kolkata yellow Murcielago was also sold to someone in Coimbatore, right? Or was it Mysore?

It should be the same car buddy. No pictures yet though. Also, there's a Cayenne S and a Ghibli in Tirupur.

That Murcie is in Mysore.

Any idea what all do they have in the garage?

Here's an impounded Audi R8 somewhere in Coimbatore.

Was the M5 the V10 M5 / 2007 model year one?

not sure if the orange M5 was a 2007 model. Was busy chatting up with my friend about his new S cross with my back to the road .
By the time I turned the car was at a signal 50 m away. All I could see was the 4 exhaust pipe and orange. Did not notice the tail lamp nor I had a close look. Anyone who knows the details are welcome.

I spotted a Sakhir Orange F10 M5 on Avinashi Road a few weeks ago. Could that be the one you saw?

That makes it three M5s so far on Coimbatore roads, including the Sakhir Orange example, and a white one I spotted some time back.

Is the other one a white F10 a legit M5? Remember seeing one but unsure if it's a legit M5 or not. Belongs to some sugar mills guys I was told.

Also, are you sure about this being a legit M5? Going by the RaceDynamics stickers, I guess this is a normal F10 since they specialise in tuning diesel cars. And the wing mirrors too look like that of a 520/530d. Pretty sure the M5 has smaller wing mirrors. But again, there's only that much one can figure out from that image. I may be completely wrong too.

Funny you asked, because I too had a modicum of suspicion that it wasn't legit. It had all the markers of an F10 M5, the front fenders, the wheels, the bumpers, the quad-exhausts, et al, but it 'wafted' past me! I had my window down, but as much as I strained my ears, I couldn't hear the typical bassy thrum one would hear from a large V8 at low revs.

Granted, it was being driven quite slowly in moderate traffic. I thought, well, maybe I couldn't hear it because of all the noise around me, but now since you questioned its legitimacy, I too have my doubts .

EDIT: I just found this clip of an M5 revving I had shot a couple of years ago. I recall the one I saw here in CBE sounded nothing like this.
