He had a R1 ages ago. The Vmax did not make way for the R1.

The Gixer was always there even before the Vmax came. The Gixxer was sold to a friend of mine.

The Vmax has gone to Sanjay Gupta. He did not take the bike there but was used to shoot the song in Bombay itself as to keep the continueity.

Not sure if he replaced it with Gixxer or not. Folks at Yamaha won't be happy seeing him posing with the Suzuki Gixxer!
The Gixxer went before the Vmax did and in the picture you can see the Vmax in the background.

The Vmax made way for his new bike which is yet to arrive..the Kawasaki ZX14R.

Imran sure is a car enthusiast and easily chose the V8 S over the standard V6 when he bought the old gen face lifted Cayenne S, which still very much remains with him as the GTS is only a courtesy car considering his S was in service station.

I just wished he bought a 458 instead of the California, as in India California is priced above even the LP550-2 Gallardo which comes across as a much better alternative.

Last I heard was that there is a very small gap between Cali and 458's pricing in the country of roughy 40-50lac. This was one of the prime reason the silver Cali sat at the showroom floor ever since the opening of the showroom till last month coz she had CF bits and options worth nearly 85lac, hence people moved and bought a 458 instead.


Talking about Ferrari, I am told that Ferrari New Delhi will get a new operator in 2014. I hope this leads to a Maserati showroom too.

So Speedy does this mean that he has right now only the Busa and that an Enfield based Chopper and as you mentioned a new ZX-14R is arriving?

That is the word moving around. Maserati world over shares its showroom with Ferrari and do not have a stand alone showroom or service center.

He does not have the Busa as per my friend, he even did not see the enfield based chopper when he had collected the gixr 1000 from the actors house. The ZX14R is expected to arrive in september.

You mean S1000r or maybe HP4??? Now that's moving out of the box. Going ahead and buying a LP 550-2 was again a brave take, not that he couldn't afford to buy a standard Gallardo.

BMW Motard is getting only 4 units of the HP4 and all are sold out. The next batch of bikes will only come end of next year. In september or october as per Kawasaki's launch Bmw has nothing new to offer.

The whole idea was this car was in the old price and ready for delivery in his favourite color black, thats why he chose it, plus price of a 550 is cheaper. He also changed the wheels to the black ones.

Oh but why buy a car is haste, I mean if at all it changes the complete dynamics of the car and changes it in a way you don't specifically desire it to.
And the wheels that he has opted for, isn't that from the older generation? I mean i might be wrong but isn't the standard rim available a multispoke, I am completely forgetting the name of the particular rim but basically its the one that Karan has on its Gallardo.

I dont think it was a hasty decision on his part but a smart one. He is not someone to speed or anything, so the 550-2 is a good choice. The only difference is its a 2 wheel drive and nothing else changes from the 560-4. I am sure he got a good discount and also the old price being applicable with the car made it a sweet deal. The car was brand new and had been here for a while.

The wheels are not from the older generation they are optional Callisto high gloss black wheels which are the same design for ages with the gallardo. The car was optioned by the dealership with Cordelia wheels which are the multi spoke ones. The standard wheels i guess are the Apollo or the Callisto.

Thanks for all the info.
Yeah Cordelia it is, the name of the multispoke rim. Yeah i believe Apollo was introduced with LP 560-4 as standard rims and Callisto was also continued from the last generation Gallardos. And as for the car, it surely looks good in all black avatar.Though slightly under powered, but then that shouldn't make much of a difference.

Arjun Rampal has a " F1 tested Mercedes Mc Laren" SLR?

The first link says that he posted a pic of a McLaren in his twitter. Well, he must have clicked a pic of the McLaren he spotted while he was shooting abroad; Need not be his own car.

Drive a lp550-2 and she will change your perception of being under powered . In India you rarely touch the 200 plus kmph mark and in the city you are max touching 60 or 70 kmph, even if you are in a Veyron. The Lp 550-2 even on the e way is not under powered or slow, she is capable of leaving alot of other cars behind.
