Leela had a Porsche 944 sometime back. Not sure if he still has it. I guess Naren Kumar had a Mitsu Evo 7 in Coimbatore.

I think it is a gold coloured one TND 6001. I was looking at some old cine films of my uncles which he took in 1973. He was one of the largest importers for Lakshmi Mill in the UK. GKD was fond of his family so on the day they left, he sent this car to take them to the airport

Only thing i hate in that X6 would have to be the rims. Too small for the Behemoth, the 20' Y spoke one is quite a stunner.

I have a friend from Tirupur who also said that the town has a Gallardo. Not sure of the R8 though. He also said that once a businessman came in a Maybach to Tirupur. Again not sure if this is true.

There is a TN 01(Chennai) registered one too, belonging to one student from PSG. I spot it often at peelamedu and race course.

And Yes, the model A is the one parked at Alankar Grande!
