Slightly off-topic; feel free to shoot me.

Are there any CL-65 AMGs in India?

I think, not.

There is an old gen CL55 AMG.

There are couple of new gen CL500s and 600s I guess, but no AMGs.

What a huge fall from grace. Shows that living beyond ones means will always catch up to you. I read somewhere that he was trying to emulate (and even outdo) Dr VJM, well he has succeeded in that his fall has been even quicker! Great cars, though.

Where is the oh-so-handsome Brooklands now? Wasn't it the only Brooklands in India?

There are 2 Brooklands in India, the other one is in Delhi. W16's Brooklands was at the Exclusive Motors for sale some months back. It must have found a new buyer by now.

I was just going through the thread's earlier pages (Page 6 #85 & pics on Page 7 #104) ; just to drool over the pics. and i came across this. May be it will ease the doubts here.

On a side note, the CCX has arrived in AP which is silver in color.
Sorry for going slightly off topic but what happened to his 191 horses? Even if he had 10 horses which costs 20+ crores his debts would have come down drastically had he sold them

By the way what car(s) does he have now?

And the CCX??

Aren't we acting sadistic here !

The man may be going bankrupt for whatever reasons and what the media is portraying may not necessarily be true, and even if it is who are we to be happy/make sweeping statements about it and his lifestyle.

It's a sad thing that someone who collected these beauties has to sell them to due to financial stress, it could happen to anyone among us as well.

Request to kindly reserve for better things

^Agreed, noone here is feeling happy or being joyous of the fact he lost huge amounts financially. But it is indeed sad for the supercar segment from a hyderabi point of view.

The CCX was a rumor. And coming to the horses, word is he already sold most of them couple of years before we even discussed it due to the cash crunch situation. The cash crunch itseems, apparently started in 2010 itself. If you see, none of his super cars are bought after this period. Hardly one or two here and there.

That's a tough one, I don't think anyone will equal W16's level of insanity in car collection.

I think the next best would be the Poonawalla brothers.
