I think in the picture, behind the Rolls Royce Ghost, there is also a Lexus LX470 that seems to be either giving cover to the RR or simply following the RR.

The Ghost, IMO, looks much better than the Phantom! It looks chiseled and trimmed and yet, it manages to retain the Phantom's air of elegance and presence. And the 563 bhp twin-turbo V12 that powers the Ghost leaves the 453 bhp Phantom in the dust! I'd take this over a Phantom any day!

I've seen this on 100ft Road, Indiranagar very often, or is it the same one? Isn't it based on the Toyota Soarer Coupe? I've seen an older gen Soarer in Jayanagar, quite sometime back! I prefer the old gen Soarer to this.

Here is something I caught today on Richmond Road at Vellara Junction.

A very interesting old-gen Land Rover Discovery! It had a huge Land Rover logo on the bonnet!

Oh-so gorgeous. The second pic is just awesome. No words for the beauty of the Jag XJL. Almost looks like a competitor to the grand daddies like RR Phantom, Maybach or a Bentley Arnage.

Superb night shots dude!!! I love the translucent roof on this one. And those are the best alloy options for the XJ!

Bro, after spending time with a Phantom, you'll realize that there can't be another car like it! It's very very special, and exudes a persona even the Mulsanne can't match. The Ghost is sportier, but felt like a heavily dressed up 7 Series in the end. The regal presence of the Phantom overshadowed all other cars that fateful day! But to each his own


And about the white convy, It's a Soarer with Lexus and Special Edition badges all over.

I've always had a thing for black Jaguars, especially a black XJL. But this one, this white one just blows your mind! What a superb looking Jaguar XJL! And the black/translucent roof compliments the shade extremely well!

Great catch, Manish! As always!

I trust your judgment, JayR. You're right, the Ghost is probably a 7er with some added zing and jazz. It is the sportier car and that's why I'd take it over the Phantom. But take nothing away from the Phantom. It's in a league of its own!

Incidentally, the 'Soarer' tag was dropped later on (in '05)

Spotted Charlie Croaker () weaving through traffic in this lovely little red Mini on Richmond Road today. The raw and rorty exhaust was heavenly and the way Charlie was going about his business today left me fumbling with the camera, hence the not-so-great pictures.

P.S. Let's see if you'll can spot something else 'interesting' in the second picture!
