Default New Beetle Spotted in Mumbai

Hi fellow bug spotters,

Last evening around 6.30 I spotted a light blue (more of a silver blue) colour VW new-gen beetle at the Apex Honda Showroom near Priyadarshini Sion.

I work in the same building as the Apex Honda showroom , near to Everard Society, next to the flyover starting at the road towards IMAX Wadala.

I had never seen the new beetle in person. I get out of the main entrance and see this beetle waiting at the gate for entry.

after that i see a stream of city's and civics ( at least 4) getting out of the regular open parking lot and making way for parking for the beetle. Couldn't get a better look/pics since it was hurridly moved down to hte basement.

From the low sprung look of the car the car had very very wide stance.

Anyone seen this bettle before in mumbai.

As a I see the bettle is not officialy sold in india. hence included this in a new thread after searching.
Mods please move or merge with a suitable thread if necessary.
