Agree - caught first sight of the R8 at Mekhri circle, coming from the new airport. That road is pretty fast, so assumed that she just did a high speed run. But my understanding was that when the car slows down, the spoiler goes back in, so don't really know how come it was still up. Perhaps there's a manual setting?

The pictures were taken at around 60-80kmph, for as long as I could tail him in my puny little Santro At the golf course, traffic opened up a bit, and with a low growl the car just zoomed off.

*sigh* Times when I wish I won a lottery or had a rich politician relative :-)

Spotted these today:
1. Maroon Q7.
2. White Q7
3. White SLK
4. White merc GL
5. White S80
6. White XC90 (There's one in my apartment too, white color I don't know if it was the same one. It used to be red in color when I saw it in '09, but when I saw It, and see it now in 2010, it is white in color)
7. Some very old 1990's white Range Rover.
8. A dark blue 1980's/90's Golf, moving like a snail.
And An assortment of imports at that imported cars service station on Corporation Circle.
Pot shots of 1) and 8) will follow shortly.

Amazing shots manish, the cars seems to slow down by itself pose for you once they sees you focusing. By the time I take out my cam, most of the 'spottings' will be at least a km away, that too normal luxo-mobiles. Still can't figure how you manage these bespoke snaps(that too these V10's and V8's). Hats off ! You have 'some' reflexes to react so fast when you see a car

Saw a Hummer in morning around Koramangala. Not sure if others have spotted it already, or the owner is a TBHP member!
Here are the snaps. Taken from my mobile and also since I was driving, did not get enough snaps.

Yeah, saw the same hummer too. Still running on those massive rims. Only the spare wheel seems to be stock.

Lovely shots of the Gallardo!! Looks menacing in those pics and I also notice that the windows have been rolled down. Seems like the guy behind the wheel wanted to start his Sunday morning on a loud note. He must be really unleashing all the 500 horses on the rather empty looking road.

Nice catch Manish. The Gallardo looks great! But it's high time Bangalore gets some LP560-4s. Almost every other city has a few of them prowling around now.

The Hummer H2 is a great catch too, Ampere!
