Witnessed this yesterday. Quoting from my post on my FB page.

Source :: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?sto...23666044458276

"So, was at UB City in Bengaluru today and this Lamborghini Gallardo was parked in the porch.
Now the motive of this post is not to share pictures of this car but to create a little awareness.
The car got a lot of attention no doubt, but, people really need to learn how to treat someone else's pride and joy. In a span of 7 odd minutes, there was a parent who put his kid on the roof of the car, a young lady who sat on the left headlamp, another kid who sat on the bonnet and a guy who rested his backside on the rear spoiler, all for the sake of pictures. This was all in a span of seven minutes and among a million other who touched the car in various places and even tried opening the doors. While taking pictures of yourself with a supercar might be "cool" and might get you a lot of likes on Facebook or Instagram, one must know how to maintain a safe distance from the car. We are aware that this isnt the only case where in a car is being abused, but was not was not a pleasant sight seeing it in person.
We would hence urge all the petrolheads to know their limits and appreciate and admire the beauties from a distance.

Is it just me or did anyone else spot a new Audi showroom (Audi Bengaluru Central) in Bengaluru on St. Marks Road?
So I am guessing Bengaluru is the 3rd city to have more than one showroom of Audi in India after of course New Delhi and Mumbai.

Just posted the same a while ago mate (Post quoted above)
While the official inaugration is still due, there aren't any interesting Audis on display. Same old A4s, Q3s and Q7 along with a A8.

Is that the recently wrecked PY1 registered Aventador from the Thrissur garage? Has it been restored already?! Or is this a different one/old snap?

Yes, the same one. This, I guess, is a pic taken before the crash.

I was at UB City on Christmas Night and this car was parked there on the porch. I had read your post about it just a while ago. I was surprised to see absolutely zero protection for the car. Everyone who was taking a picture with the Lambo in the background was touching it. There were even people sitting on the bonnet for crying out loud!

I was so furious at those people. My dad and I asked some of them not to sit on it, to which they obliged. But the very next minute some more people come along and the whole heartbreaking process repeats.

I don't understand why people park their prized possessions like this and leave them unattended to. I feel it is also partly the owner's responsibility to ensure his car is not abused; maybe by requesting the security personnel to keep an eye on it, or parking it at safer location (the place near the entrance to the 4-wheeler parking was vacant BTW).

It was heart-wrenching to see it being abused that way.

Spotted a gorgeous 2014 Bentley Continental GT in a dark greyish blue hue, right in front of Oasis Mall, Koramangala, this afternoon. Going by the exhausts, it's probably a V8. Unfortunately, I couldn't manage a picture as it was part of the on-coming traffic.

I haven't seen a Continental GT in Bangalore. Is this the first one?

There are many CGTs around, but this must be the first '14 CGT. The color looks interesting. Can you please give is a pic for reference?!

I am aware of several Continental GT too, a few Speeds and even a Super Sport Convertible. But none of them are the new gen cars.
