It even comes in Auto Trasmission(optional, i think). Just not a 'bike' !

The buttons dont bother much as those hardly come into the actual 'riding'. It is mostly about creature comforts like the Audio System, GPS and even a Dual Blower integrated Fan !!

Wow, once upon a time, this thread was a hot favourite among most BHPians. Almost everyone would visit this thread! It was so popular! And now, it's almost dead. The last twenty pictures or so are all of cars already snapped earlier!

There are several reasons for this IMO. Few of them are:

- Nobody in Bangalore is interested in buying any new supercar. While other cities have seen the new Gallardo LP 560-4, the new 911 997 II Carrera, new XKRs, new Bentleys, new SUVs, Bangalore still has the old super cars prowling around!

- As a result, our main man Manish has decided to go to Chennai and has made that thread better than ours! Manish.. Come back! The thread needs you! I know there are no new supercars around but it'd be nice to remind us of some older ones around!

Suhaas a slight correction.Am sure there are thousands of Bangaloreans who are interested in buying supercars but not able to afford them( example you and me)

If you are talking about the huge ugly black thing with wheels from a truck, then I think it belongs to some guy who also has a black chrysler 300C.

Haha very true my friend! The interests are there but the dough isn't! Anyway, what I meant is that people with existing super cars don't seem to want to switch to newer cars. Usually, people with deep pockets do just that, but we've seen a dull period! I should have put it in a better way!

But you know what, I have this feeling that Bangalore will be greeted by something HUGE very very soon!

I think I have a small suggestion Suhaas, a slight off topic but may I please be heard.
I hope we bangalore Bhpians meet up and discuss about the hotspots where and when these beauties can be spotted. Afterall it boils down to "United we stand, divided we fall"

It is of sheer regret that we are not being able to spot these cars often. And as far as new imports are concerned, I'm very sure that all imports in bangalore have not been featured on Team-bhp yet. Why dont we find those cars?

We can actually come together and help each other quench our thirst. What say everyone?

Sounds like a plan Preetam! And a good one at that!

And about the exotics, I can assure you that the imports we see on an everyday basis probably amount to only 20% of what's actually there! You might be taking a walk down the road not realizing that there is a mad nocturnal animal lurking behind the garage doors!

Exclamation

@Suhaas : Bro I think we are going severely off topic here. I would rather start a Thread in the meets section.

Example of what I mean in my last post :
Suhaas is a die hard Porsche fan. Maybe he'll live his whole lifetime inside one.
On the other hand, all Porsches are vacuum chamber enlarged beetles for me(Preetam). But I love Ferraris and Lambos.

So why not team up and tie all the bhps' together from the prancing horses, bulls, and some other horses and make something unreally good and captivating.

Will surely come up with a solid plan as to how to do it and will create a new thread tomorrow in the meets section.


NOTE:
All Bangalore bhpians, be on the lookout for a new thread in the meets section.
