Now that you have said it, I am relaxed Mahendra, but read my highlighted points in your post please.

When our own Indian car mags give away COTY awards, we shy, take sides and say they are playing for money (I know they do), why should we get all excited about a guy who owns 17 Lambos and 9 Mclarens(9 McLarens) (just scratching the surface (thanks to google Jay Leno's Garage - Cars) and 'reportedly' adds the Nano to his collection (and when can we see this car parked among his exotics ?)? And this will be my last post here since I do not possess any great knowledge about car collectors and their whims.

He has not done this for publicity or money, for sure. Yes, he has been associated with JLR but his car enthusiasm goes way beyond that. Infact, the Tatas have note even promoted this news anywhere, either on their social media platforms or through press releases.

P.S.: Apart from the McLarens, Lambos and Ferraris, he owns a lot of "regular" cars as well. Heck, he also owns a Fiat 1100 Select!
