From what I was told, the RX8 has been sold and is in Chennai now.

I'd seen the Nissan SWB at the K1000 SSS in Manyata tech Park. I'd posted in this thread as well.
terrific presence I admit.

speaking of the RX8's, @manish, maybe the one you are referring to is the silver one with the diff front and rear alloys. this was usually spotted in front of a house in Ulsoor. It had replaced the spot where an 18" alloy shod accord used to be. Now the accord is back in its place and there is no signs of the RX8 around town.

Silver RX8 = Black RX8 (first silver then black)
Both are same.

Yes, I had seen it posted earlier.

This was in front of a house near Ulsoor lake. Manish is right. It was a silver RX8 and then re-painted black for some odd reason. But then again I love the finish. You never get the near perfect factory finish if you repaint a car. And, somehow, this car has it!

It was registered the last time I saw it,just before it left for Chennai.
The pic must be about 2 months old.

The car is pretty controversial! Why would anyone change the colour, not register it and all that! The pic is about a month and a half old.

Most of these cars are " Jhol " and on the run from the DRI.

I know that these don't really qualify as exotics but they are imports nevertheless.
Wow, what a collection. A person like me will treat these also as an exotic due to its capabilities in the class it represents.

I love both this stuffs & would have bought a similar, but 3-door Land cruiser, but due to two reasons: parking problem & dad won't allow one more SUV without selling my G, and it's never going to happen, selling my G.

Nice to see a few appreciating these beauties! This guy is a SUV junkie of sorts. He owned the first ever Safari and Seirra ever to hit Bangalore roads. He also owned the new generation Honda CR-V and a Ford Expedition.

Was going through a few old folders in my computer and stumbled upon these old pictures. Spotted this grey F430 in Bangalore Club one night. I wouldn't say that it's a looker but it does have unparalleled street presence!

P.S. I apologize for the terrible quality of the pictures. No clue as to why it came out so bad! My camera is pretty good!

Mods, I know that this car has been featured in this thread earlier and people are getting tired of it but let it be there!

I think the flash caused it to become dark. Fantastic car though. I can't make out, is it a Spyder?

Yes indeed it's a Spyder.

This car sounds very different from the other red F430 that is spotted around. Actually, it's the other way round. The red F430 sounds different. I've heard it and both these Ferrari's scream all the way to the red line. But there is a distinctive difference between the two. I'm told that the red F430 is equipped with an aftermarket exhaust setup.

Could someone shed some light on this? I've heard that aftermarket Tubi exhauts setups are popular among Ferrari F430 owners(?)
