or better still, a Bugatti Veyron.

Those are rare even in the places they are "common"

I think I could pay it for him, if it is in 1:18 scale that is. He did say rare car, and everyone knows they come at a price, so thought I could give him some really rare rides to choose from. I don't think the GTR is going to be very rare for too long.

And I think the option of "rare as well as easy to maintain" is an oxymoron.

Hey Ram, that was a good point Akshay brought, what is the budget like and would he prefer a sports sedan, coupe, off-roader, SUV. Loads of other options to look at as well. I guess he really must be confused by now.

rare and easy to maintain? i doubt that an expensive car like the DB8 or a Skyline is easy to maintain.

Well it all depends on what his budget is... its hard to give advice without a figure.

If his budgets not too large then a BMW 135i , beast of an engine and none in India as yet but that wont be for too long.

Money no bar RR Phantom Convertible .. only one in India till date.

Both these cars can be serviced by BMW which has a fairly large and growing network of service centres

We need to ponder whether this rarest car can be manitained in India? Does the A** & Spares for these are available? It should not happen that he purchases the car and for servicing the car has to go back all the way to the manufacturing location for getting it serviced.
