This was E geared i think. Saw it up close at the supercar event as they were trying to sell it to me, but my memory has fails me now.

If it is, it had come to my friends place here i Ahmedabad as his brother was interested getting one. If i remember that was right after the Mumbai Super car rally.
Something is not right why would i want to trade a New car (his from day one) and that too a 2008/09 model for a 2005/06 model second hand Lambo, when i can afford a new one. I was told this car is sold and it is not some recent news but within two weeks of the super car event.

And here's a piece of international irresponsible journalism. The following article says that the LP640 costs $8,50,000 in Australia!
She might be driving it there but here the wedding pictures flashed in the news showed a yellow or orange Gallardo that was given to her. Anyways if a new car its good for us, one more car to spot now .

its comes to about 2.5 crores for the Lp640 in Australia. Australian Dollar is cheaper than U.S. dollar.

Its possible the Lambo at the wedding was a loner/poser car for press and media because the actual car was coming later. Kinda lika Bachchan posing next to the silver Phantom during the promos of "Eklavya". His eventual car itself was white.

Someone seems to be making a lot of money now, considering that we never hear of his movies.
Nice bike, "Prince".

Yes, who incidently runs the Ducati dealership in the country. But IMHO, by letting this guy on the bike does no good to the brand Sanjay Dutt can help !

Nice find nonetheless, Eventhough my pic is the very obvious Red, They yellow too looks Oomph ! on the Duke. Quite Italian of her !

Oh wow a 1098 ! thats rare . I think Shabbir from banglore also owns one. Saw it in Autocarindia magazine. Disclosing the name because it has come in the papers also.
Cant believe that bike actually costs 25 lakhs ex showroom.

Yes that is also true. They are friends too so as promotion he took the bike to ride and then to SRK's party where he did not know how to start it when he was leaving . Sanjay Dutt on a Ducati... No ways the bike does not suit him. He likes big bikes as in engine and size wise to suit his personality. He had the Harley and now has the Busa. He surely will get himself another Harley now that they are here.

The 1198 costs 34 Lakhs on road Bombay , and my friend has one. He wants to sell it now. I dont know how many people would be interested in picking it up considering the price that would be asked for it.

I was just being 'Sarcastic'

Even I know Duke wont fit in Sanju's persona, Tell you what, I think even the R8 don't carry him properly. He is built for Bling. The Fezzas were fine. Even a Lambo !

OT - I'm a diehard Sanju fan, hence mentioned him. One of my best friends in trivandrum bought(few years ago) a brand new Intruder Volusia, simply because Sanju has one

EDIT - Hey abhi, that is a great find. Big time I saw pics of the car. But the car looks like it is in a sorry state, everything is worn out and faded. Does he still use it or is it just parked and left to rust ?

I see nothing wrong with the M5. If the car is used, some things will be worn or faded. Considering this is atleast a 7 year old car, i say its nicely "driven".

Add me to that list. Even i am a diehard sanju fan. Very few such people that i know. Rightly said, he is made for bling and his personality in heydays was almost god-like and i feel no other bollywood actor has his screen presence. Just look at him in "Kaante"....Wheeww

My only concern is he's not ageing too well. He should cut down on his vices fast

With Sanju bhaiya none of the above suit him, Its only the S class, Audi A8, 7 series, Phantom, Ghost and the Hummer that would do justice to him.

Tell your friend he wasted his money. Sanju bhaiya has the busa and not the intruder, he never owned one at any point too. That was Sanjay Gupta's bike parked there .

I drove the car and it is in good shape mechanically. Age definatly is catching up with the interiors but otherwise young as ever. He uses the car and has it regularly serviced and checked.

The seats at some part have started showing age with the Cracks but besides that she is nicely worn in. Did ask him if he wanted to sell her and No was the immidiate answer.


@Mobike008 will pass on your message and concern shown to him .

The M5 looks immaculately maintained. Did the last gen come with those gorgeous wheels as standard?
