Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

Was in the Casuarina Drive area this evening. Didn't spot a single exotic. Good to see the red M5 (makes it 3 in Chennai - this one and 2 blue) and the grey R8 there...

I think the Ghost belongs to actor Vijay.

The Defender is a Wagon body style. Was it TN registered? I have seen another Wagon body in silver.

Saw it for the first time, and in moving traffic, though the traffic flow allowed me a sight of the profile, which I enjoyed so much.

I often fail to remember full model designations, or even get them slightly wrong, in these circumstances, but Google seemed to confirm. Hope I didn't go too wrong!

I believe the one I saw was black. At least, it was very dark! So not the beauty in your pic. But sure, it could have been a 640

Maybe it was Sakhir Orange. If possible can you google the colour and see if it was that? That will explain where the car was sold to.

Was just pulling your leg.

The 6 series has the following variants 640i, 640d, 650i and M6.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

I googled the colour and it seems to be Sakhir Orange. I'm good at differentiating orange and red but if it is Sakhir, my brain - eye link gets fuddled up.

Any idea who it has been sold to?

Re: Supercars & Imports : Chennai

I saw a TN-reg G63 AMG last evening ! It was a grey-colored model, and seemed brand new. I was driving, so couldn't take any pics of it.

At around the same time, my friend spotted a DL-reg Rapide S. Here are a couple of pics he shot on his phone (please excuse the really bad quality).

Isn't this Rapide a part of the garage with the white Aventador?

Oh no idea who it was sold to. But it was lying unsold over here for a while, because it was imported around the time the duties went up. So was wondering if it had got picked up or not.

Odd. Google seems to know about a 620, but BMW.com agrees with you

Google knows 620s, 625s, 630s and none of them ever existed, so I'd trust BMW.com on this one.

A G63 is a great catch. I think the Rapide S belonging to the White Garage has already been registered. There are a couple of pictures of it which were shot in the Grand Chola portico and it seems to be carrying their signature styled plates.

The DL plate may have been a temp registration.

Which area did you spot these 2 cars?

Happy to see that it has been sold to Chennai . Should check with BHPian BraveArc who posted the photo whether the car had Chennai plates. There are a few exotics here with DL or CH plates.

Is DL-1T a temporary registration series? That's the plate the Rapide S that my friend saw was wearing. Both the G63 and the Rapide S were spotted near TTK Road.

I spotted the Sakhir Orange M5 last evening on TTK Road. It was being driven by a chauffeur, with the owners in the back seat !

No idea but T usually means a Temp board. Did you have a look at the White Garage Rapide's photo posted earlier?

Where on TTK Road did you see the M5?

Am in the mood to go after supercars today!

There is a new R8 in town. A red one with black blades. Saw it a few days back on Cathedral Road...
