Exactly! Imagine how many Skylines you can buy with that .

So, are you saying that a LHD car gets through an MOT easily?

The Veyron IS in Mumbai. I saw it today up front while passing the owner's house. The front appeared black. Sorry no pictures due to privacy.

End of story.

I'll believe it this time only because:

1) It's Dippy
2) It's not the 1st of April

However, this entire discussion is absolutely feeble without pics!

Finally all doubts laid to rest. There is actually a Veyron in India. Wow that is some news. Many have seen one in Mumbai, including Dippy sir. It seems Mumbai BHPians have a tough task to locate the Veyron and post it here so that others like me can feast our eyes !!

Didnt I say so? It wont be really tough to spot the car but rest assured it will come out only late nights. Finally something exclusive after all the Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

Now I really want to see an Enzo in India.

Is the Veyron just visiting or has it transferred residency here?
(Is the car here on Carnet or here permanently?)

The buyer's a builder.. for him it's the price of couple of flats in the suburbs, and I'm not even talking of City ones.

Alarmingly J&K is missing; time to write to VW.
