Wink spotted: limited edition bmw in mumbai

hey people...im new to this forum and im real glad to just sit back and read the various threads...but after what i spotted this evening i thought i got to post about it..
i was at the docks where all the custom clearance is done cause i had to collect some sofa sets for my mom and i spotted theser 5 cars all covered there...as i waited one of the car cover was taken out as it was being washed..it looked awesome..from far i thought it was a ferrari..but when i went close i noticed it was a bmw...a 850i..it had awesome 18 inch wheels and an entire ac schnitzer kit...dont know if the engine was pepped up.....the guys werent letting out any info about the car but when my dad who knows some peple there asked they said it was a 1992 model and was very rare only 28 produced....the other 3 cars covered were all classics, in not very good condition or so it seemed..and the last car was a gt40 whether it was a kit car i dont really know but it was real short....it was covered so couldnt get a good view of it but it was white in colour..the bmw by the way was black and it had full white interious including seats steering dashboard gear knobs, mats..it was all just white but did look awesome.....and if youll can find pics of this beamer (so called rare) one post them...cause i couldnt get any pics.....
adios.........

Always felt that the 850i was the best looking BMW .. tho it looks quite unlike one ..

Had seen a maroon-reddish one front close quarters and had fallen in love immediately .. siiiggghhh ...

Yeah sure, the TVR and GT-40 are coming. Along with the 999 and the Brazilian Palio.

BMW's kinda beleivable, but GT40's bit too far, as is TVR......which means BMW might be fake too....LOL.

Ok a bit off topic but anyway...

I was reading this old issue of Evo where there was this article about the TVR Griffith. It said one Griffith had been sent to India some years back (which means a long time back, cos the magazine itself is 4 years old now). Have any of you guys heard of this griffith?
Im not saying this guy's talking about that car, Im just querying.
