Default Spotted the Phantom!!

This phantom was seen parked on the roadside of a residential area near JP Nagar, it looked brand new with a temporary MH registration. The driver was seen sitting inside, without making eye contact with anyone who passes by...

The Spirt of Ecstasy is standing up... I guess it is because the car is unlocked.

This is the first time I am seeing this huge car in front of my eyes... It is really huge, photos alone won't suffice, you have to see it.

@clevermax, thats a nice pic. Thanks for sharing.

The phantom looks huge, more like a stretch compared to the corolla. Wonder how its driven around in Blore.

My pleasure!

I've been there to attend a marriage function, and I saw a Q7, one S class and a BMW 325i in front of the marriage hall, and I thought I had seen enough for te day... and then I went to the the place where I parked my car and four or five cars after mine, I saw the Phantom!!!

The 325i I saw had a bad dent in the front bumper. must have hit a stone or something, low ground clearance..!

anyone knows how much would a buggati veyron cost on road in india, I believe its 6.5 crores rupees in uk (checked on top gear), would it be even costlier on indian roads? would a 130% import duty on 6.5 be applicable?

I feel the 300C does not deserve to be called an exotic. Being American it goes without saying that it's a bad handler and the interiors....well, I refrain from commenting because I don't want to be banned.
