I suppose they are taken at the workshop but I'll have to confirm with my friend. One of these cars is headed to the suburbs for sure.

wow! I knew one Rapide was coming but didn't expect to see two of them so early! The black one looks gorgeous! Where will the AM showroom be coming and when is it opening?

The AM showroom is opening up below Kemps Corner. If you go from the Haji Ali end, Go below the flyover and its right at that left turn. Work is on. Will be opening soon

Beautiful pics Dippy! But is that color actually black or is it kinda dark greyish? In the last pic, compare the color to the black 3.

AFAIK it would be located right next to the Porsche showroom to the left isn't it?? As that is the only sight I have seen construction work going on. I may be wrong.
That would be a great sight. Porsche, AM and even the humble Maruti Suzuki. That flyover would end up being even more prone to accidents with drivers staring at these beauties parked inside their showrooms.

Nope not next to Porsche, its being done at the other end of the flyover near the turn which goes up to Altamount Road

@jagxf: No news of any cars for Chennai as yet but I'll try and find out
