Default Prev question.

Thanks for the info bout the RR. Is it in Mumbai now ?

And long ago, i read that Rajiv Shah had the SE30 Lambo, the Firebird and the Hennessey Viper (550hp). Thought he has a whole new collection now. And this firend of mine says Sunny Deol either has or had a Maybach. My friend aint a reliable source, but i wanted to ask anyway.

Rajeev's red Firebird and the black (not green) Dodge Viper is sold off too. As per my information, he has not bought the newer versions of these cars.
He never had a Maybach, at least not in India and niether does Sunny Doel. No film person owns a Maybach. There was only one Maybach in Mumbai, owned by Mukesh Ambani in Deep Maroon which is since long send back to the UK. There is one owned by the Dhariwals of Manikchand Gutka, but that car is in Pune. As of now no film personality owns a Rolls Phantom nor a more exoensive Maybach (no Amitabh does not have a RR as flashed in the tabloids and TV, it was a publicity stunt by RR and Vinod Chopra which fell flat on their collective faces)
A few industrialists (mostly builders) own a few of the RRs sold in Mumbai.

Shucks then i stand corrected. I didnt know his car had been delivered. Thought the White car was a Bentley which Abhishek drives. Anyway he has a penchant for white cars.

If U've seen a maroon, then it'll be Mercedes India's demo Maybach, which might have give to Mr.Ambani while his blue one taken for Service. I was once told by my friend in Merc-India that they use their Maybach only for demonstration as well as stand by for present owners while having the service of their own cars.

Yes it was at the Peddar Road Pump way back in 2002. It was a Purple Diablo VT Roadster with cream interiors. It was runing a Dubai reg and is now back where it came from.

Hi Gogi,
Mr. Mukesh Ambani indeed had 2 Maybachs. He sent one to London, while the other one is still very much here.

Cyrus, that probably was the Godrej's Maybach that you saw.
