i thought u guys had known about these two landies they have been in town for quite a while. the greenish blue is one is ver old now and is an international reg. i've been seein it for 2 years now. the passat sw is also pretty old now and is one of three units in blr. also spotted was a Merc S600. no i am not kidding.

@JayR the 650 is a beautiful car see it at night in your mirrors and u'll know what im talking about. and then hear it go past and you will redouble the respect. no offense i thought the same a while ago but changed my mind eventually. it kinda grows on you.

visited Beemer showroom the other day for a friend who was looking at a 5. It was unbelieveable the number of 7's they had in there.

i agree. The trunk is a picnic table.

One of 2 in the city. And probably, the only Audi around, with the 4.2 engine.

Default Volvo XC90

Had spotted this a couple of weeks back, but forgot to upload. Sorry about the bad images - taken from a moving car, with a phone cam, in traffic.

Spotted this Nissan 850Z on Hosur road (near Shantinagar). The guy wasn't enjoying the traffic for sure. He was slowing down to get some breathing space (around 100 meters) and then was going zoom showcasing all the horses he was having under the hood .

I checked the Nissan USA site and Nissan 370Z comes closest to what this car looked like.

Please do not kill me for the image quality, that's all my 1.3 mp phone camera could manage in no light .

This is certainly not a 370Z (850Z spelled in error - i am sure).

@Gandhi,

Ahh. I misread 350Z for 850Z . It was 7.30pm and was raining, so happens .

Good catch Gandhi. But whats even amazing is this dude Manish. Its like that software where you upload a pic and it tells you the name of the place. Manish is one such legend on tbhp. btw never knew 350z existed here. I thought Ransom would be the first one to import it here. My bad. 370z would be very nice to see though. I think 350 is getting old now.

nopes. That was my car in US.i made the mods there and infact the mods are still going on back there. down here its a humble auto..saari alto.jusht for mileage.
the 370Z is yet to hit indian shores. This is a 350Z.

@manish, saw your sms about the gallardo spyder. I'm hoping you'll give us a driving report of the lambo. one step ahead of the spottings!!

Until someone spots it, here is a blurred pic of the new Gallardo Spyder.
Got this from a friend who spotted it on Brigade road.
