Maybe the same one was bought by the person in Bangalore?

@Jay R
I heard that the GT-R has all sorts of electronics and computer servicing and stuff for which u need specialised software etc. Apparently very different from spanners and screwdrivers. Are the people at Nissan equipped for all that?

thats a relief ! now where's my chequebook ?
i don't think the engineers would be trained in anything more than teana and xtrail. A gtr is way different that those 2 i am sure

Ya Sudheesh, you are right Prithvi's regn no is KL01 AT 5555. It was disclosed is a daily when there was some issue with its road tax & also was shown in an interview of him in some channel.
Dude, that's enough said about "that" Q7. you guys are .
half of us have started to ignore it around here coz of the numbers. There are just so many of them around. matter of fact, the LC, the primary choice SUV earlier, is dwindling in numbers.

Saw the black GT-R last night being driven the way its meant to be, on Lavelle road. Managed to sneak up behind him in traffic on the bike but he left me in dust (literally!!) when he found some room after crossing airlines and taking the right to St. Marks Road.

Kanhangad is a place in Kasargod,Very much a mallu stuff

I heard the GT-R was bought from Chennai. I may be wrong.

Anyways JayR and I were told by a supercar owner that there is a new LP 560-4 in B'lore which is white in color.

Couldn't be the one from Hyderabad by any chance, could it?

Supercars do seem to go round the big cities in the South regularly..apart from these two, there's also that red F430...

@ Jassi,

From what i have been told, yes. The Nissan showroom takes care of the GTR's servicing needs. Must cost a bomb as compared to the other 2 models, but what the heck. That makes it easy on the mind, and on logistics.

Just like how a certain car enthusiast in the city used to take his Supra, for basic servicing, to the hosur rd. Toyota dealer. Even the two LS 460 in blr go there only apparently.

Both the place names refer to the same place. The former name is an attempt to a English transliteration of the Malayalam name for the place. The latter is the anglicised version.

I hope now you know where it is. You hit the town while travelling in the NH17.

Now that I think more of it, it is the daaark grey one that I spotted- sporting the reg ending in 9999. I came upon it by pure chance, as we exited Java City and headed towards Ch. Street Empire for dinner, the R unassumingly blended into traffic at Lavelle Circle and was ahead of us when we crossed Shangrila; those massive tyres picked up insane amount of debris from that construction work, which was flung at us while accelarating flat out in front of Airlines.

The 'spanking new' Z3 has been parked there since 1999! it's LHD and the owner won it as the prize in the famous Dubai Duty Free Raffle.

the reason its parked next to the nike store is because the owner of the building converted his old bungalow to dual-use and lives in the penthouse above the nike showroom.
and yes, he recently sold his old E and bought a 2nd hand, facelifted E.

unfortunately, the Z3 was used by his late wife and doesn't see much use now. though you can imagine what a hit it was in the early 2000's. it was probably the only genuine sportscar in bangy, those days!

btw, have been trying to get him to sell it to me for the last 7 years, but he won't, for sentimental reasons.
