Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

Saw a full white Rolls Royce, pretty sure it was a ghost just one day before Ayudha Pooja, complete with a traditional garland hung at the majestic grill on Cathedrals road. Anyone else seen it?

Could not take a pic as i was driving....

One of Chennai's rarely seen supercars - the Bentley Continental GT Supersports - snapped at the Taj Coromandel a few days back.

Talk about coincidence! At the very spot where this Bentley CGT is parked, was where I saw my very first Bentley, a Wine Red Flying Spur, way back in 2006!

I must say, the shade suits the character of the car very well. Btw, doesn't the car's ground clearance look rather high?

Here is a side profile shot of this model taken from the Net. GC seems to be similar going by the alloy wheels and the gap between the wheel and body in the well.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

Most of the good roads in Chennai are crumbling and dust levels seem to be at an all-time high. These could be possible reasons why supercars are keeping off the roads or being brought out only on the few good roads and that too after the traffic comes down late in the evenings.

Spotted the Apollo Ghost being driven down a gully which links up to the side gate of their office building. I shudder to take my Linea down that lane.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

BMWs, even the bigger ones, have become a bit too commonplace to have much wow factor, these days, but, recently, I saw a 620 in Adyar ...and was wowed. What a beautiful car

620, 740 and Z4 always wow me!
I find these 3 more appealing than the //m series.
