Guess what? Our (He) Man Shetty is now endorsing Ford Endevour. The guys at Ford got the right guy, but he is more of a Hummer freak. Will someone ever leave a Hummer and drive a Endevour???

On a promo of an auto-show on Times Now, John is heard saying "Cars are about functionality....taking you from point-A to point-B." ;-)

I have to say that Gypsy does look nice. Even though we don't know the full extent of customizations, it does look wicked.

Whatever their cars may be, I am sure they would have such deep window tints (perhaps even darker than the tints on their house windows) that they are unable to see beyond their nose at the real world outside.

The stake has been bought by her BF Raj Kundra for 755 crores and not 70 crores.
You can buy anything with a bf like that

Wonder if he plans to do some serious off-roading.
@GTO & other Mumbai off-roaders, looks like you are going to have some company from Bollywood for offroading.

Quoting from the article :

John, the biker, shifts to cars
By: Sonal Chawla
Date: 2009-02-03

The avid biker shifts gears for now... buys a modest car
John Abraham loves bikes, so you'd expect him to add a new one to his collection, but he has now gone and bought a modest four-wheeler Maruti Gypsy King for himself.

The Gypsy is white and the actor has requested some modifications in it. The actor admits, "I bought the car a few days back. The Maruti Gypsy was the first car that my dad had booked but we never ended up buying it.
Gypsy is like one of those crushes you have in school and it is always special." ^^ So true.

Making it useful
John elaborates, "Although it is custom-made, it is built with utility in mind. Swapnil Nalavade helped me with the modifications and the final outcome is exactly what I desired."

He adds, "I took advice from friends and Hormazd Sorabjee (Editor of Autocar India Magazine) before buying the car. He recommended that I get the new Gypsy King as it is 'the' car.

My first love remains...
But the actor's first love remains bikes, "A biker will always remain a biker. Motorcycling is in my blood. I just rode my bike last night. Since the gypsy has just come in, I have been driving around in it.

It is like going back to basics. I have always been more of a SUV person. The previous cars of mine included Prado, Tata Sierra, and now Audi Q7."

When told that most stars use his current choice of wheels for their bodyguards and security staff, he laughs, "I am the biggest security for myself."
Nice choice by John. I still miss my good old companion for 7 years; my Gypsy. .

Suniel Shetty driving an H2 and endorsing Endeavour is just like John riding Hyperbikes and endorsing traditional Escorts Yamaha bikes.

@Mods: I feel the thread title should be changed to something like 'Movie stars and their cars' since the thread also contains pics and info. of non-bollywood actors cars.
