I am talking on the figures i have seen for the Egoist which on road Mumbai would hit the 2cr plus bracket. I cannot give you the exact figure on the open forum for this car. If you do look at the normal R35's they too on road Mumbai would be in the 1.5 bracket. The Second hand 07/08 GTR of Bombay after changing a few hands was being quoted at around Rs 85 Lakhs. I was also informed the Nissan will not be taking bookings for the GTR's.

The GTRs imported in the country in 2008 didnt exceed 1 Cr OTR. Please refer the below link for detailed calculation which was confirmed by Fireblader too who actually had imported the first R35 though his was at a slight premium because of the being first novelty factor.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...tml#post813736

But now, due to the currency appreciation of Yen - the 2012 GTR base retails for 8,694,000 yen ( now INR 5715000) in Japan. So the India OTR with tax, registration, transport, insurance, agent margin is bound to touch 1.50 Cr.

So it means, that the 2008 buyer who can now sell for 80 - 1 Cr prices virtually have 0 depreciation loss.

Dipen please do read my post again. All i mentioned is that a 07/08 GTR was quoted at around Rs 85 Lakhs. I have not mentioned anything of its brand new cost, also do see papers of the car to know if it was under invoiced to save cost or at actual cost.

Please do read my post again. I have mentioned the Normal R35 today should be in the 1.5 cr bracket and the Egoist arround 2 cr plus bracket.

@Speedy,
I haven't mentioned anything about any incorrect data in your post. So probably you didn't get my post. It is just a clarification on how the cost of a brand new GTR has elevated between 2008 and 2011 from 85L OTR to 1.5 OTR. There is no mention of any conflict that you read.

And if you are looking at under-invoicing - do note that my price calculations are with respect to MSRP from the country of import. Under-invoicing is again something which probably would create more debates. If you follow the calculations, you will yourself get the pricing of almost any $40000+ CBU privately imported. Evo X probably would result in some more duty (SAD) due to certain import clauses.

Its a 3 letter car- GTR. I got a chance to drive it on track and believe me it's the best thing i have ever driven. If you are thinking about getting a sedan, i would suggest go with the Jaguar simply because of the "exclusive" factor. But if i were in your place and i would combine both and get a c63 sedan, that thing is fast and it has got 4 doors.

Try the RS5. Fits well within the budget, besides with a sports car you will need the money for 97 fuel.

If you love to drive and want a big luxury car then the Jaguar XJ is the one for you. But does it come within a crore? I have no idea. But i have driven the XJ, the 740Li, the S500 and the A8 extensively on the track and on the streets and on the highways and the XJ comes as a clear winner in a combination of all these surfaces. And yes you get exclusivity and also a wild animal pouncing out through the bonnet of the car. I just love it.

So it is still the S class that trumps. If one goes further up the price bracket, I believe that the Bentley is the best driver's car as well as the back seat heaven.

You are only 29, have some fun now. There's plenty of time for the S-Class' et al later in life.

Jaguar people proposed to me to either go for a XKR sports coupe or a XJL and i even test drove a XJL and felt quite comfortable but the long wheel base version is quite long

anyways have been looking at BMWs 7 series , audi a8, Mercedes S class but all are not at all up to the mark or are the older models with a new one dew.

so please help me cause i wanna buy a car in a months time ?
