Isn't that the Madans' car? If it is, torquemaestro, it's an Indian Lancer body with engine and drivetrain imported. I think it matches Evo VI specs, and it clocked a 12.47 run in Mumbai.

You Chennai guys are lucky. Bangalore moneybags rarely let their babies breathe free.

ps. I see NO connection between the two posts of torque and pjspeed...

Yes, it is Madan's car. Its an Indian lancer completely upgraded to EVO specs. Insanely fast! It was the fastest car at the Mumbai speed run.

Mumbai is far ahead in terms of exotic cars but of late, have been seeing really nice cars in Madras like the new Range Rover, The Cayenne, The Carrera, SL55, RR Silver spirit.....Btw the S, C and E class and the BMW 3 and 5 series are choc a bloc.

EVO 5,huh? i honestly dont know if i have to call it the EVO IV or the EVO VI..its JD's car and it hasnt been running since the mumbai speedrun, its been having too many problems of which the last one i heard was that the oil pump ceased.

about the race u mentioned torquemaestro, every sunday morning at 6 am sharp, wait at the ECR toll gate, u'll get to see 11 superbikes and 8 hot imports including the ferrari 360, two porsche boxters, 2 911 carreras, a nissan 350Z, a cayenne. all racing each other till mahabalipuram and then back...its a race u'll never forget in a lifetime....but if u need to watch it, u either need a 300 bhp car or a superbike atleast.

torquemaestro told me about this evo some time ago. It is JD's car, as Nitrous confirmed.

torquemaestro's one lucky bugger, been seeing a few Porches lately ( 997 Carrera S black colour, 3 Cayennes I think).

btw A black 7 series was spotted by one of my friends two days ago.

I hope to see the Carrera S sometime, they say it keeps passing close by my place regularly.

PS: Mumbai and Chennai dudes, chill!!!! Lets talk about India finally hotting up and us Indians getting to see some nice cars finally after 50 years of isolation from the automobile world!!!!

Or you can wait for the great equalizer - the red traffic light. Happened to spot the Nissan and one of the Porsches at the Kotturpuram signal around 9 am a couple of Sundays ago.

I had just made the right turn from Chamiers Road onto Kotturpuram High Road and waited at the corner just to hear these 2 cars take off.

You must mean 535D, that has been confirmed by Autocar to be the best diesel they've ever tested.

I've spotted 530D: Have you seen that one?? Black colour.
