Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Weird that we don't have a general thread for Bombay, like the other cities? Starting off this thread with a sexy import.

Spotted this MR2 yesterday. Still a great-looking car, very timeless & sporty. From an era when Toyota had a bunch of affordable fun cars - this, the Celica etc. Seemed to be running too rich though - was heavily smelling of petrol. Also, that end can sure is pointing the wrong way.

One of the best things about cruising in Bombay on a Sunday morning is all the cars you see. Vintages, offroaders, superbikes, supercars etc. This AMG was literally flying on Worli Seaface:

On another recent Sunday, had spotted this gorgeous 488 Pista:

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Some snaps I clicked over the last few years.

Spotted this G Wagon near Powai. It was de-badged, but RC info shows AMG 63. However, it didn't sound very fruity for an AMG. Maybe the driver had a light foot.

Mustang GT 5.0 at 3M Andheri for a PPF job.

Spotted this Phantom at Khar 3 years ago. RC info says it belongs to Sanjay Dutt.

This is the oldest from about 5 years ago. Matte wrapped TT-RS at Vashi.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

The golden lambo doesn’t belong in this thread really, although spotted in Bombay it is a Delhi car and is only here once in a year or two for the supercar rally. The RS6 matte grey is owned by the same friend and it’s stationed in bombay since the past few months or so.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Oh no! You started a Mumbai Supercar thread GTO! It is said that the person finally starts it will be cursed.

Thank you.

The thing about Mumbai is that there are tons of hidden stuff, which never gets snapped. I hope the Mumbai guys share some of the truly rare ones.

Here's one from myside, a beautiful R8 had come to a stop at a signal in Marine Drive. This is from 4-5 years back. Made for a pretty picture.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Finally! I've been hoping to see this thread come to life. These pics are a few years old, and unfortunately aren't of the best quality. I have way more photos of Bentleys and other supercars but they're relatively a common sight, hence only posting stuff that's out of the ordinary.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

As promised, here is the first set of my finds in Mumbai. Carspotting in Mumbai is truly a wonderful thing to do and I do miss it, since I live in Muscat.

This Mahindra Jeep was used for Pope Paul VI's visit in 1964, and currently resides at Mahindra's Kandivali factory. This was photographed in Dec 2014 to commemorate 50 years of the Pope's India visit.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-20141208_120434.jpg

Here is a Land Rover Series I or II, not sure which one, which was parked on a street near my college, St Andrews. I was a student for 5 years and I did feel blessed to be in that area because every day there was some imported car or the other popping up.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-20150627_153626.jpg

Here is a Land Rover Deefender 110 with embassy/consulate plates outside Globus Mall, Bandra W in Sept 2015.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-20150911_112419.jpg

A tasty Nissan Patrol Y61 parked in Turner Road, Bandra W. This is the first of my 3 Y61 Patrol finds in Mumbai, and given how they are hugely popular in the Middle East, it was a pleasant sight to find these in Mumbai.

Ride of a sheikh, here's a Mercedes Benz 280 SE spotted in Khar, with the period correct plates too.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20190115_094652.jpg

This Land Rover Defender Series I was abandoned near a bank in Versova. Last I checked, January 2020, it wasn't there.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20190825_171552.jpg

And here's the Range Rover P38 in utter derelict state outside the Ram Mandir station in Jogeshwari W. It has been in the same place from the last 4 years.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20191008_145957.jpg


Moving forward, I will also share images of all the Toyotas, Lexuses, and other brands that I've found.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Here's another set of pictures!

This beautiful maroon W116 was parked in a bylane near my college. It also sports the old numberplates.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20160720_120816490.jpg

Here's the Volkswagen T3 Vanagon parked outside St. Peters Church.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20161210_122408729.jpg

The C5 Audi A6 abandoned at Carter Road. No longer there now.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20170814_122423857.jpg

This C4 Audi A6 was getting some work done right opposite Star Bazaar, Andheri W. The Audi showroom is walking distance from where this C4 A6 was spotted.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20171104_142533259.jpg

Never expected to find an Infiniti in Mumbai, but here's a FX30d. My friend's dad bought one in Muscat last here, sold as the QX70.
Supercars & Imports : Mumbai-img_20180825_071249631.jpg

This Infiniti G37 was spotted outside Azad Nagar Metro station in Aug 2017. It's on sale on OLX India for Rs. 19 lakhs.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Mumbai

Had spotted this 488 Pista which belongs to Gautam Singhania a few weeks back on the sea-link. But I don’t know why the dude can’t wait for his chance in the line. Comes at full speed from behind tries getting in front of my car with his security Scorpio pushing me out of the line, then his security gets down and pushed aside the barricades blocking a closed booth and zoom past without having the decency to close it or pay the toll amount!

He also need not worry about paying speeding fines on the Sealink since I don't think Mumbai Police has a mechanism in place to generate e-challan for foreign registered cars!
