This is one of the ultimate places in the Mumbai Suburbs to find high end exotics
Seems i might have to make a visit to Bandra Station East again .. lol

I saw the same Panamera 2 weeks back near Lilavati hospital. It was gone by the time I could click it. It sounds awesome.

PS - It's always followed by a jeep full of security guards.

i think you all know who it belongs to. I work in that building, his cars are not treated very well, the panamera is handled by numerous ppl, and is washed with a dirty cloth and a bucket of water!! some paint from maintenence work being carried out there has fallen on the car.. it is now lightly speckled with white spots.
OT: His bentley is missing an emblem from one of the wheels and has scratches in places.

IMHO, the only thing i like on the 'Business class Poker' are the Badge, Rims and Color.

Thought as much. IMO it seemed like things are bought for the heck of buying.

Spotted it the other day on the highway and this is the big boy of the stable. This car was escorting an older generation 760li. The Panamera Turbo.

i drove the test drive vehicle in delhi ie the 4s , i was not too excited , loved the interiors the buttons on the centre console could be compared to the finish of a vertu phone.

but i was not impressed with the overall experience , it did not have the comfort of a bentley or feel of a 911 . it was neither here or there . if some one goes for a panemera it should be a turbo imho ..cos u can trade in the stiff ride for some pep..but not to have both is waste of time and money
