Another member has shared the pics in an earlier post. Looks like a genuine A8L with the troublesome W12 engine in it.

This is painful at multiple level. First, seeing such iconic cars in such state. Second, realization, that irrespective of the fact how badly you would want to restore something like these to their original glory, you can't (Insert your own set of reason, mine is pedestrian spec lack of time, MONEY & patience).

I so wish we can create something where cars like these are saved with funds collected from Bhpians, something like a NGO with our own Noble cause.

How old is the last pic? That SEC is driven pretty regularly in Mumbai.

wow what are the odds, I was randomly scrolling through this thread and just this afternoon I found these cars in their current state. The GS is still in Dollars Colony, but somehow they managed to move it before the left it in its final resting place.

Nice find sleeperwagon.

Sad to see the GS300 in that state. It used to be in an amazing condition when it was in Mumbai. The way it has been abandoned - looks like there was stolen and abandoned.

Equally hate to see the 300ZX in that condition.

Found this video on YouTube - showing 3 cars rotting.



A Jaguar XK140 that was discussed here (Vintage Jaguar XK120/140/150 in India)

An SL500 with AMG wheels - I believe this car was partly rotting in Mumbai too.

An unknown local sportscar - can't seem to find a thread discussing the same.

Last week on my weekly commute to work, I started early to catch snaps of this beauty.

Yes, apparently the owner has clarified that the car is there only for repairs & is driven regularly.

The Sports car seems to be a kit car inspired by / based on the Lancia Stratos design? Something from Lister Bell or looks more closer to a Sterling Kit car?

But, I don't know if either of these came with a sun-roof.

The door-less, lift entire roof design looks similar to the current Sterling designs.

Had seen this car along with two more Japanese imports lying by a car tuning/mod shop near SVR Mistubishi Motors service center, Bommanahalli till few months (or almost an year) back. The shop setup used to look like, they are big time into engine modifications and tuning, and there were some Accords, Hondas inside the shop with engine mods. Last when I checked few months back, the shop was nowhere there, neither this car. Where is it located now?

Was this recent? Just last month I saw this Rav4 lying abandoned in Ejipura, in this post (Pics: Imports gathering dust in India)

I think you're referring to Tvara Performance. Around a year back I visited them and at that point they were getting ready to shift their garage to some other area in HSR Layout. But ever since then I haven't heard from them, unfortunately.
