Talking about Mr.Randhir Kapoor, i remember seeing him once in a chauffer-driven E-Class near Mehboob studios, Bandra. It was immaculately maintained and was a Cuprite Brown in colour scheme. This was around 2 years back. Any experts here who know whether it is still around with the Kapoor's or has it been sold?

It will be interesting to see the outcome of this unfortunate episode. I wonder what would be the cause of the fire and how will Audi be reacting to it. Now, this being a vehicle owned by a celebrity, I wonder if Audi will give him a tough time like it does with non-celes in replacing the car - of course, that all depends on the cause of the fire.

Some strong irony happening here, folks!

The number plate decoded : P - BBQ

The car actually became a barbeque

Didn't bother clicking since it was a CRV.
Seems Akki has a fondness for the CRV. I saw him drive into a wedding reception a few months ago in a Gen 1 Black Honda CRV.

Well even I am waiting for an official word from Audi. This happens to be the third 'high-end' Audi burnt in the country, in a year. Certainly not a desirable issue for a German giant known for quality and reliablity.
And oh, was this Q7 too reduced to ashes like the other two R8's?

Heard that he prefers the regn no 2277 for his drives. The Q7 also bore the same.

I believe they must be getting a hefty discount for lending their name to the brand if they aren't already endorsing it.
