OT: I am still confused if this a plain jane 4.2ltr V8 GranTurismo or a 4.7ltr V8 GranTurismo Automatic ! The only way to prove it is to look under the hood.
Saw one Gran Turismo of the same colour parked in Stallin's house. I pass through the area everyday on my way to the office. I think it is the same car.

That was exactly the same feeling I got when I looked at the pictures. It took a few seconds for me to realise that it was indeed a RR Vogue. Absolutely distasteful. At the first instance I thought it was some TATA Sumo or something. Those Vogue Style 9 19" rims are pretty boring too. BTW Check out those Lights, the horns and those oversized mud flaps ! A beauty gone waste I say.

Nice pics dude.. I am no saint - but just take care while masking the registration number. You have masked the RTO code in one photo (TN -- AT) and the series in the other (TN 04 --)!

BTW, I caught this BMW GT yesterday at St.Mary's Road. Followed it till Kotturpuram after which I couldn't match up to its speed. At first, from a distance I thought it to be a X6 - but its low height made me think again and take a closer look.

At first when I saw the Bull Bars on the Rangie, I thought the Owner loved his car too much, and hence the Bull Bars. You know, Rear Ending, Scratches and India are very good pals! But after I saw that horn, I changed my mind!

I think I saw that Silver Supra( Rear windscreen Wipers! ) this morning, parked near Ethiraj College. Could it be the same?

The rangie deserves to be in the Weird and Whacky thread. At first glance i was wondering what a sumo is doing on this thread.

If the Silver 5 GT's stock rims were powder coated to black, then its the same one I saw on Adyar Bridge a couple of weeks ago.

Anyways I managed to recover a crashed partition on my laptop today and I found some old pictures.

re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

IIRC I've seen that RR in Madurai just after the Assembly elections. It had a red beacon light (covered) at that time. It isn't a surprise that politicians cars have BIG bull bars, oversized multiple horns etc.

P.S: aravind511 - With your masking it's easy to unmask the RR number. You have masked '04' in one pic and 'AT' in another pic :P Intentional?

Looks like the picture of the Volvos were taken in the Maya Motors parking lot in Adyar. Have seen the white Volvo many times there.

When you register a car in Pondy worth 1 crore, tax will around 50K.
For the same car you will have pay around 15 Lakh, if it's chennai.
So many of these cars are registered in Pondy, with some fake address.

This car has been doing rounds with the same " for registration " sticker for god knows how long ! The last time i saw this very car was in april !
Has there been a number plate exemption for expensive imports ?
