Good spotting day today!
A Porsche Turbo, BMW S1000RR, R1s and Hayabusas, 2 Ferrari 458s, Audi R8 V8 and an Audi R8 V10, Toyota Celica and Supra, Mercedes SL55, lots of Jaguars and a Maserati Quattroporte.

Camera hung up on me with the R8s and the black 458.
Amazing snaps Ashwin.I was too lazy to get up and go to UB City this sunday.But now i know how much i missed out!!! The Maserati is one of my favourites/haven't ever spotted one in real life.Only if i could have been more energetic yesterday :(.Anyways if the front lip of the turbo damaged?The left vent seems disfigured.

I was at UB mall all of sunday and I didnt quite get to see the eye candy that Ashwin.terminat has posted.

I did see the Quatraporte and quite a few super bikes. There was a SL 55 with the top down blasting it past the mall. Quite a few evoques too.

On friday, i saw a brand new RR Ghost (black with aluminium finish bonnet) being offloaded from a flatbed at the UB mall entrance. Maybe VJM has ordered for one? It was definitely a new car delivery.

Thank you! I went because UnknownSatan told me he'd be there and I had nothing else to do anyway. Looks like it was a good decision. Although, I didn't get to see the Chrome R8. But got to member fellow member EP there too. If you love Maseratis, you and Avishar would've had a lot to discuss that evening!

Yup, the front lip is damaged. I had a photo showcasing the same, but decided now to upload it. But here it is for reference.

Call me Ashwin, please. ashwin.terminat was originally intended to be ashwin.terminator, not that it's any better though!

Yeah, the SL55 guy was driving a little too spiritedly IMO. A Jaguar XJ-L was pulled over by the cops as well, probably for no regn. plates at the front, along with an R1 with aftermarket exhausts and no helmet. The R8 V10 was going towards St. Marks Road, went around the round about to come back onto Vittal Mallya Road and floored it. Those Capristos could be heard in the distance.

I see more Evoques and Jags than Nanos these days. Let's not get to the Aria even.

Had a blast in my friend's car during a very short visit to Bangalore. Those Capristos are out of this world! Nice to see so much new metal in the city.

PS: Excuse my MS Paint skills, this was put together in a hurry.

A good day for spotting today. Was a little late for the display at Bangalore Club, so missed the Italians, except the Gallardo coupe which was just leaving.

Spotted these:

Aston Martin DBS Volante:

Didn't seem like a kit to me. Seemed genuine. An absolutely gorgeous, gorgeous car.

Default Re: Supercars & Imports : Bangalore

will want someone to confirm that it's not a kit car

AFAIK there are only a handful left in the world - out of which one of them is with a private collector in Indore (JLR people had taken that car for launch - so I am confident that that one is not a kit car)

there was another one with the royalty of gondal if I am not wrong.

would be astonished to know that there are not 2 but 3 E-types residing in India itself!!
