Nope this is a different Z, its come from Hyd a couple of months back and has been registered- carries a rather special number. Manish should be able to get the pics once it hits the road.

Looked neat.
Somehow this cross over styling is rather weird. And it costs almost a crore! That money can be better spent with BMW than this weird looking car

Just chanced upon this old post while looking up super car imports. This is an old myth created by Stanley that they were appointed by Aston Martin to supply the upholstery. Stanley was a subcontractor to DC design along with leather supplied from England. I am sure stanley did a good job but are being dishonest when they say that they are OE to aston martin on the stanley website. The best leather is available in Europe and for an expensive car like the Aston, what competitive edge would there be for Aston to outsource the seat covers to India?? The leather in the car ( which is made in scotland) is a miniscule cost compared to the car. And this is not a mass produced car. DC has clarified that all he did was implement the prototype of the design that came from aston martin. The car was not designed by DC !!! Not to take away any credit from any party but the truth is the truth.


"Chhabria's greatest achievement recently was the creation of the Aston Martin Vanquish. He received well-deserved accolades for that venture - of course the design came from Aston Martin, which Chhabria implemented in Mumbai."

An Oxford dictionary (or whatever book it is) would have better suited this british car.

I know of 2 300zx's (black and red) that were up for sale. The red one is undergoing some pretty eye catching works, while the black one is stock.

My first thought was an AMG bodykit, but so many of you seem to have heard the hum, which you don't find that easily in the 500.

Never heard of anyone debadging a higher-spec model, and replacing the badges with that of a lower spec. Ha!
LOL! may be they thought 500 is a bigger number than 55, :P, or the badge was stolen and there was no spare stock, or I don't know seems weird

The owner a young guy in his mid 20's was happy to allow me to click a pic of the interiors.
Wow! Great! Lucky you, I got a glimpse of a 360 Modena in Chennai but it whizzed past me very fast.

this is the truck the endeavour is based on. hugely popular in malaysia and indonesia. AFAIK, this truck was bought down here as a test mule and eventually sold off.

GT - Gran Turismo. Most likely the Maserati everyone's been drooling over...have seen it up close once, never saw an Apexi sticker though.

any one else confirm this?

Its defenitely not a Maser,no way i will ask "which car" if its a Maser. This is not one among Maser 'status' car.I think the one i saw is a Jap car,saw the logo but couldnt make out.Probably Manish can throw some light or rather pics..
