The Z3 looks really nice, and quite well maintained.
@Scorcher: I doubt the plates are blue. I think Preetam has just blanked them out using a blue brush or something.

The Plates were blue indeed.
But I did not understand something, the car had plates saying "UP ****"
Is it a different country, or our veyry own Uttar Pradesh?
And if it is UP, then why the blue plates?

UP **** That was it? It could be a consulate car. But which consulate would have a Z3? Beats me. Normally indian regn. would be like UP **-* ****, so just curious.

This car was in hibernation till now. good to see it on the streets.
Affirmative! It used to belong to RC. Saw it being driven a couple of times several years back (around Koramangala IRR) But I'm not sure about the blue ZR1.

I was offered the Blue Zr1 from his stable and i had adviced a common friend against it as it was a master piece so i guess he sold this one instead. If i had known the convertible was being sold i would have bought it eyes closed. Corvette+convertible = loads of fun.

Indeed! The green 'vette is something, isn't it? The growl from the american V8 can never be replicated by these modern engines IMO. Great car! And the '90s interiors are out of this World!

The Jaguar's 5.0 ltr V8 produces a sound almost similar to those american muscle cars. Doesn't replicate it but it's somewhere close.
Can someone please post pictures of the interiors of the Corvette. Since Suhaas has tempted me.

I think there is a black Jag along with this GTR.
I spotted these a couple of times side by side on Koramangala Inner Ring Road and Airport Road sometime back.
And if I am correct the owner stays on Airport Road.
