it is not possible that the car was imported in dec 2006. it could be a brand new car or a second hand car that is imported as long as it is a right hand drive. at 63 lacs bring the car i dont even want to see it and nor would my friends. he left the bombay car as he felt it was not worth the price and should have been in this cars range. please give me the persons name and number. thank you.

What if the car is brought down here as CKD (is that possible)? There must be several illegal ways of cars coming through as well just like our SBK's are got down as parts and later assembled. I have heard about a few LHD's arriving into Bangalore when I was in PU College. Not quite sure how it was done. But I guess, money speaks.

No chance LHD. Not unless it's on carnet, or it's an embassy car. There is only one LHD that has been imported into India in recent times, and it ain't no Viper.

Just saw a black Lexus Sc430 on hosur road near electronics city on my way back home. It was a KL temp registration car. Very dirty like driven through rain, I guess it was on way back from chennai/KL. Absolute black tints.

I have pics and a video, which I'll upload later once my friend sends them to me.

Note from Mod - The following pictures are NOT from the Leela Palace in Bangalore, but from the Emirates Palace Hotel in Dubai (Thanks to jon_luis for pointing this out). Actually its Abu Dhabi (says vishaldev).

Im only leaving the pictures here as they have been linked to a lot.

NOT FOR DISCUSSION in this thread.

Thanks,
R

I spotted a black Mercedes ML 320 CDI (4 Matic, Ka 01 MR 85**) on Residency road today. Looked pretty nice and has a good presence on road. No pics as I do not carry my cell phone with camera as they are banned at work. :(

Spotted a Lamborghini Gallardo in front of Safina plaza last night! Couldn't click pics as I was driving. Is this the first one in Bangy?

I saw an RR Sport myself, before leaving for CBE. Going from the airport towards the Inner Ring Road.
