re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

So here's what happened. My friend and I are getting back from a late night movie, and drive past the Taj Coramandel and as we're driving by, I see the headlights of an Aston Martin. We slam the breaks and pull over to the side of the road just in time to see the car exit onto the road and gun past us. It was a WHITE V8 VANTAGE!!! And seeing that my friend and I had half our bodies out screaming and flashing a thumbs up he gave it the beans on the empty road!

People, I cannot explain the feeling accurately, but bloody hell I was numb for half an hour after hearing that glorious V8 at full scream. Keep your eyes peeled for it, the owner of the car Yuvan Shankar Raja has no qualms revving it for the enthusiastic bunch.

EDIT: It seems manish already captured some stunning pics of the same car. What would we do without you man

The one covered by Manish is the V8 Vantage S whereas the Music Director's is a N420 limited Edition V8 Vantage.
Posting a few photos of the same and a photo of a XK-R with its top down.

re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

Here are a few photos of a R8 along with possibly a badged M5? Not very sure but it had normal 5 series rims and did not have quad exhausts. Could someone confirm? It was PY registered and If I remember correctly I think jagxf once said sometime back that a new black M5 was added here. Hence the doubt. Also posting photos of a Bentley Continental Flying Spur, Maserati GT, Jaguar XK-R, a silver M5 and an Evo X.

None of the E60 5-ers you've mentioned here are M cars. The silver one in particular looks kitschy. And the rear bumper on the black(?) one is a dead giveaway.

Yeah you are absolutely right, they are just Plain-Jane Badged/Kitted E60 5'ers.
AFAIK there's only one E60 M5 in town and its in Silver. Except for an aftermarket transparent cleaner tail lamps, the E60 M5 I am talking about is mostly stock. Pictures of it have been posted on this thread several times.

re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

Hi guys
Yesterday near kancheepuram i saw a Maserati probably granturismo as shown in the website. It was too fast and i was on a bike so could not take a snap of it. I saw the stylish maserati written on the rear end. It was white with red coloured seats and blazed the road. Some people are really lucky.
Cheers

Chennai seems to be 'The' place for swanky wheels. Which is the best area to play papparazi in Chennai? Poes Garden?
