Thank you @Suhaas307 @Ajmat @Keroo1099 for the information. I counted about 35-40 cars crammed in this place with some of them in scrap condition and the better looking ones (like the Land Cruiser in the picture above) which will quickly rot away thanks to being exposed to the elements with no window glass / windshields.

Sad to see so many examples of premium, high performance vehicles dying a slow death in full public view.

Are you talking about the petrol pump opposite to Satellite Bus Stop? That pump used to have a few cars parked in sorry state. I will try and find some old photographs and post it.

I came across this Mercedes Benz C180.

All windows broken
Interiors have been deteriorated
Rusting has started
Number plate that I've never seen before

So sad to see such wonderful car lying in this state. Attaching few pictures:

Czech regd car, must have come on carnet. Not worth the hurdles to regularise it and not worth re-exporting. Only worth it something in parts

Have been seeing this JDM Pajero SWB (Kei version?) abandoned since a lot of years now. It's not really abandoned per se since I have seen it absent from the parking spot few times but the condition is really bad and it's not taken care of. TBH it still looks in salvageable shape and I hope somebody comes along and restores it to it's previous glory.

Who would do something like this to a car which looks so cool? Let alone the looks, who would do something like this to car in general?

OT: I was just wondering if such cars can be bought, just in case(I hope it doesn't happen) the owner dies.
Does anyone have a clue on what car this is? When I searched the Parivahan website, it showed Toyota Corsa, but I am not quite sure if such a car really exists.

The Toyota Corsa did exist and was one of the popular imports of the 90s. I believe it was priced close to the Corolla. It was called the Tercel in some countries.

Leena and her partner Sukesh have been caught again in another scam and her new collection of exotic cars has been seized from their Chennai residence. Hope these cars won't end up the same way as her old collection!

Rare V10 diesel-powered Volkswagen Touareg spotted abandoned



A rare first-generation Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI has been spotted in a poor state at a used car dealership in Pune.

Name:  Touareg 1.jpg
Views: 522
Size:  47.6 KB

The SUV gets a 5.0-litre V10 diesel engine that makes 309 BHP and 750 Nm paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Internationally, the car failed to meet US emission regulations and the engine was eventually replaced by a V6 TDI engine.

As part of an advertising campaign, a V10 TDI Toureg was used to pull a Boeing 747. It holds the world record for the heaviest load towed by a passenger car.

It will stay the same way forever. Regressive laws and regressive taxation will never get us anywhere, especially in terms of automobiles. Pair with that VW's exorbitant part pricing, delays and inability to sort out complex issues.

I would like to correct myself here, The Lamborghini is not an Aventador but it is a Urus with Topcar Design Hood And there is also a 458 Italia along with the 488.

Here is the video of the same;

Hi Bhupesh, would you know who is the owner? the Monoblock wheels look good as parts, but there seem to be only 3!

Saw it in Vadodara. Been here since very long now. It's still moved occasionally(independently or not I have no idea) but it mostly just sits here gathering dust and with no care.
