Thats the ex Kolkata car which has been on sale for a while now.

She must be getting Kreissieg exhausts soon. Or wait, does she already have them on? Manish?

The Calcutta R8 V10 has the signature V10 rims, unlike the ones on this particular car. Could be a an ex-Delhi example if not brand new.

Oh yeah, just noticed that! Indeed this is the ex-Delhi TDV with graphite finished 5-spoke V8 rims. Was last seen at this year's CBC Drive.

And also the Cal R8V10 on sale is a maroon one

Yeah, I wonder why anyone would do that.

There's a guy in Bangalore who owns a beautiful pre-facelift black 997 I Carrera S. But when I saw it recently, the rear lights have been swapped with the LED ones on the face-lift 997 II model. He should have left it alone, IMO.

I am not aware of the black one. The silver Vorsteiner'd one got the same treatment and it does look great IMO.
BTW Is the black one with number ending 1314?

Add to that list a RR Ghost, silver last gen Audi A6 and a white last gen Cayenne too.

The Superleggera is still very much there and in Bombay as of now.

The car does have the new (not 2013) front and rear bumpers and the new tail lights and the owner has not spoilt a good car at all. She had this done long before he changed the looks of the Noctis.

The Noctis has the 2013 bumpers. Please do see the superleggera in person first, she does not have anything of the lp570 infact her stuff is of the lp560.

Speedy, I never said she had LP570 parts. All I said was the LP560/550 tail lamps and bumpers on her made her look wannabe LP570 as the 570 also has the same bumpers and tail lamps. I understand she might look good in person but I like her better stock. Anyways, its to ones own likes.

My reply was to your comment about wannabe lp570 looks. If you put both Superleggera's together they are poles apart in the looks department. The tail lights and rear bumpers on the yellow are next gen and unfortunately the Lambo used the same uptill now, so nothing much could have been done about it, they have only changed it now for the Strada Course. Absolutely each to their own likes but the old tail lights and bumpers made it look dated and old, personally i like retaining things as per what the factory provides.
