Spotted this E32 7 series around Malcha Marg, Delhi. Though the bodyline seems to be in decent shape, signs of neglect are pretty evident.

Looks a lot like a Nissan Laurel Altima(Or cefiro),quite a common car in the middle east during the 90's.Used quite a bit for drifting too.I went to school in one actually.Brings back memories,Sounded quite nice too.Although it was a regular sedan version.

Going by the aftermarket intercooler,I wonder what motor its running on.There were quite a few variants.

Regards

I'm not a 100% sure but I remember seeing this car often at Nepean Sea Road. These were used during drag races which used to happen in Mumbai. So sad to see it in this state.

Here's a video of the car in action at drag racing event (Speedway) in 2011 in Mumbai:

I guess this is the same car that was involved in an accident some years ago.

Saw this W123 parked next to the US visa application centre in BKC, Mumbai.

It might be waiting to be restored as the tires appeared to be relatively new and there are several garages nearby.

Probably a case of 2nd/3rd owner, who picks up the car for a song and then unable to pay for the astronomical price of the spares; as such from the pictures looks like the car has a busted air suspension, which probably costs more than the car itself now.

Just did I stumble upon these pics, and thought of sharing the agony here. It's left to dust at some garage in Coimbatore. From some sources I hear that this R34 packs in a good 700 ponies under the hood.

Any Bhp'ian here in need of a project car.?

More pics of the same car from the same source. It's been said that the owner is no more interested in it and this awesome machine has been lying unused for the last 10 years.
