Cryptic plate at Gumball3000

IMG_5588IMG_5590On 23.05.2013 the Gumball 3000-Rally visited Vienna.

Of course the expected number of foreign cars with uncommon numberplates could be seen parked next to the Vienna ´Hofburg´castle.

Remarkable was, that no car wore the necessary distinguish sign (oval) and most countries could only be identified by experienced spotters.

The car showed in the attached pictures arrived together with and parked next to an arabian colleague from Qatar, so probably it´s a translated arabian plate, but nothing else supplied references to the place of origin.

As so often in Austria the executive elected the path of least resistance. The traffic police observed the race, received all cars at the parking place, perhaps also puzzling about their backgroud, and did nothing…

You only have to show yourself as VIP and all bow down!

    It is Indian plate. MH denotes Mumbay.

    • platepeter says:

      wow – i really had no idea to think about India, but now when i compare some pictures – you should be right !!

    • Aniruddha.C says:

      It is definitely an Indian Plate. MH-Denotes Maharashtra, the Province in which Bombay, or rather, Mumbai is present.

      It is registered in one of the suburbs of Bombay. YES ANIRUDDHA – AS NAYEL GIVES IT – 48=BOMBAY (CENTRAL?), S=2013-REGISTERED, VEHICLE 0001. (SO THAT’S HOW YOUR IMPENETRABLE NEW SYSTEM DE-CODES, EH????)

        MH 48 – Vasai (Vasai-Virar City Municipal Corporation) suburb of Mumbai (Capital of Maharashtra).

    • Harikrishnan Nair says:

      MH denotes Maharashtra. If it was proper Mumbai, then it would denote MH-01.

    That’s quite some paint job.

    What is the vehicle?

  3. platepeter says:

    i´m also not really a car expert, but perhaps a lamborghini (countach).. and i think it was an adhesive printed film..

  4. Wow – it’s not long ago that, if we saw an Indian plate, it was on a 1950s Hindustan Ambassador – now they field Lambos! Maybe the driver got it cheap because of the mess the factory made of his paint job…..
    Thanks for your Posting, Peter. Vic Brumby
