Adding:
I think Jenson's sold his Veyron. GPUpdate reported that some time back.

And according to MS interview in Top Gear, he had a Fiat 500 Abarth as his city drive.

Adrian Sutil owns a TechArt modified 911 and a CGT. Imagine how hard it must be to drive a car when an F1 driver considers it challenging. (Adrian Sutil likes the car as it is the most difficult super-car to drive) .

It isn't Narain's Cars, he is posing with the Car for track-days held at MMST by Auto Car India magazine.

He has a Safari & an Ikon (the last I remember) He said that he wants to go for an Audi R8 though,

The 370 isn't his, but the GTR is!

The 370z pic was taken at the time of 370z launch in India. Link to launch report with Pics & Video (Report & Pics: Nissan 370Z launch in Mumbai + display in various cities)

Whereas the GT-R was gifted to Narain by Nissan later, because may be he was closely associated with the brand promotion in India.
