SLK 55 AMG is still.......an SLK!

(If you haven't guessed already, I'm not a fan)

The CLK looks great though...

And Manish, just a passing thought: how do you manage to get pics of all these cars?

Guess this car. That is a real bad pic. I thought this is the only way to put it up on the forum, by asking someone to guess it

Thank you so much friends. Anybody has got any idea when is the ATP Golf?

Some photos of import I spotted from & on the way to Bagalore.

S350, LS460, Q7, RR Vogue & Tourage (between Mysore & Nangakode). Also spotted some super-bikes like, Yamaha R1, Honda Fireblade, etc. But it was night when I saw it.

Even then, you seem to be very lucky! The right place at the right time everytime? Either that or you keep track of all exotics and addresses.

@ Hanmust

You seem to have captured the true essence of Bangalore, in the first 2 pics! expensive cars caught in the heat of traffic

Awesome pics though. And thanks for the amg info.

Thats the merc showroom (Sundaram motors). Had seen these beauties parked in front of the showroom. Also saw a C class in the showroom which had bodykits and a spoiler and this add on kit was about 1.75 lacs.
