I think the Flying B mascot looks like a complete misfit on the Conti.

it looks like a 74 mustang.

Default Mustang

@ Manish,

It isnt that one. The one i saw was blood red in colour, and at first, i really thought it was a cleverly disguised contessa. But then, the LHD got me thinking... At it had an old reg no, the series like ABC 1234.

& @ Jay,

I dont work in Divyasree, though it's a stone's throw away.

& @ Jayabusa,

This guy had the Flying B fixed separately, by the dealer. This symbol is optional only on the Arnage, and the Azure. And i think it's standard on the Brooklands.

Default Speed.

BTW, one of my bosses saw the Silver GT Speed in Chinnaswamy Stadium two days ago. There was a driver and a gunman sitting inside, apparently. They didnt let him take pics of the car.

Guys, the car (Mustang Mach 1) belongs/is related to a member here. Read about it here :

Guys, is there a Veyron in BLR ?
Saw a dark green / almost black exotic in Domlur, heading towards old airport (fm Command hosp). Grille was similar to that of a Veyron, though seemed wider.

A split-second, un-expected view is not much to capture details. Maybe someone could help with details (if this has been spotted elsewhere).

Was Not an R8.

R, thanks though.

Shouldnt be a surprise, but I dont normally follow this thread - unless I'm notice something really out of the ordinary.

Veyron can only be expected by next year already one person from bangalore has booked it. They have charged bomb for getting right hand drive apart from the original car cost.

now THAT's going overboard...if the guy/girl has TMM (that much money), I don't see why they can't shift to Europe, buy a house in Germany and use the Veyron on the Autobahn. (or somewhere similar)

I say the same thing goes for those who buy Lambos and Ferraris in India (there, I said it!), but a Veyron owner in Bangalore really takes the cake.

I doubt it. Bugatti have not been able to engineer the system else they could have sold a lot more in the Uk and Brunei

I was told because of this reason they have take such a long time for delivering the car, currently the person who is buying that ride is driving Lamborghini in Bangalore.

Only a 7 start or a 11 start hotal owner car dream of that mean machine, if you are hanging around 18th cross MVM you will find a pretty girl driving a 911 Carrera, even she has some awesome rides in her garage apart from this.

there are only 3

One owner wants to sell his apparently due to lousy roads
One person stays in a crummy flat in the city centre with a nice view, and used to go to Koshi's for breakfast
One person, well, his dad bought it for him

Unless a humble miner is buying one -

will beleive it when seen!
