Precisely my point. All the good cars are gone or are going to go!

By the way, the Bentley GT is owned by SRK or the Bachchans?

@ speedy / krazyking: I too completely agree by what you guys have said, but since he's gonna buy something in consultation with PC (as mentioned by theragingbull), So guessing SK would also go with typical B-town stuff.

I presume he'll weigh more to the service backup parameter rather than sheer indulgence. Hence maybe something from the Audi or Bimmer stable as his second machine, if not a Merc. Could be an Lx / RR sport as well.

I doubt it would be in consultation with PC, but who knows. She has a S class so i doubt she would recomend that. I Presume it could be the other two brands mentioned by you. Lets just wait and watch. It could also be a Jaguar.

I guess abhishek bachan has a Murci LP640. I've heard of it not so sure.
But if speedy is saying, it must be true. The best car in Bollywood.

No the car is up for sale and it was in Bombay till last week. The car is not at their residance but elsewhere.

That was a 993/6 Turbo. If it is the white one your talking off. That car has been sold.

The car was offered to me and it still bears their name as the owner. I dont think they would buy back a car once sold.

The car is still in Delhi at the moment for some service work at the workshop. This was told to me by one of their workshop boys and I confirmed with the workshop owner (Patel Auto's) , so I do not know why there are two versions out there.

Ecks i am just mentioning what i was told by the Lambo Bombay representative. I had inquired as a friend wanted to see the car. It had even gone to Chennai for the Photo shoot and track test for a car magazine.

Haha, wow speedy. You seem to be some sort of a big shot. All celebrities and car dealers contact you and offer you to buy them.

No big shot my friend, just a person fond of cars. I am sent pictures of the cars and called incase i am interested or know someone who wants it. I live by a budget and practical use of the car, dealers and others know it. They call me to see the cars as i am fond of them. It does not cost to see the car does it ?
