That is owned by a young chap. Hardly looks older than me! Lucky bum! He had a puncture sometime back and he called up the dealer in Bombay who told him to come to us. I learnt something that day. The patch(small strip like sticky thing) we use to repair punctures supposedly dont hold above 200kmph. This was told to me by the Porsche guy in Mumbai. It sounds awesome too.

Only one gripe abt that car is that the owner doesnt know what has been done to the car. It isnt stock for sure. I asked him and he said, "yes, it's been modded" . But he didnt have any more info abt that.

That aero kit may look kit but it is terrible on our roads. That day itself, it got scraped on the entry slope to our place.

vip3r may be right. I dont know technically, but it was modded for more performance. It sounded quite different too. Awesome!

The car must be in hibernation, with the batteries disconnected or something... 2 or 3 Masers in Bangalore, and i havent even seen one!
the white maserati belongs to a leading mining family from bellary who reside in mumbai. that was the first GT in India.

as far as 2-3 GT's in Bangalore, there is only 1 right now owned by the former owner of the SL55 AMG, who owns a restaurant on church street and recently opened a new one on st marks road.

I guess this was the same silver color carrera S i saw close to commando hospital yesterday evening and i suppose it had the aero kit aswell. Must have been the same car unless there is another similiar one in bangalore. Also spotted a MH registered maroon Nissan patrol, guess it was the early nineties GQ version near deve gowda petrol bunk. Awsome road presence.

i was driving all over bangalore but could spot only a handful of the exotics/imports. I saw a white celica in jayanagar.It has performance exhaust. next I spotted a 1st gen ML near Royal Orchid Hotel on Airport road and then, the big guy- Phantom. I went to geoffrey's tha'ts where I spotted the Roll's. Humongous it is.I've got pics and will upload them all in the evening.
