It is nothing surprising for the Bombay folk, many Celebs dont wear safety gear or even a Helmet. Salman wears no safety gear even if he goes for a long ride (which is rare), this ride looks like its from his house to Sohils place, which is walking distance. The R6 belonged to Sohil and was sold long back.

Does Jai Mehta (husband to actor Juhi Chawla) co owner of KKR drive an Aston Rapide ? He's owned some fabulous cars in the past so I expect nothing less. Saw a pic on NDTV which I can't find right now. Its a close up shot of him but the astons dash and seat is visible.

He owns a Vantage and not a Rapide. Silver grey exterior. Some of the other cars owned are the XF-R, Supercharged Range rover and M5.

Still feel its a Rapide. Not surprised he has an M5. Used to be known as a hardcore bimmer enthusiast. IIRC to the first Mumbai Speed Run, he brought both an E46 M3 as well as an E53 X5 4.4i ! Both newly launched at the time.

I have seen the car and that why i am saying Vantage. The speed run at Reclamation..then those cars were not his and i dont remember him being there. Those cars were from the Pune stable, both black colored. He did have a E46 M3 and a X5 though. The X5 is GJ registered and now both those are sold.

What if he owns both? BEEM3R does have a point Abhi, Vantage is a two-seater and we can clearly see the rear seat in the above picture and hence I assume it is a Rapide. Just confirm

From the pics above it looks like rapide, as vantage doesnt have rear centre console and the rear seats are too big to be vantage.

Agreed this is the Rapide...then does it mean he bought the Vantage too..oh boy, have to go to his place to check them out.

I dont know how true it is but i heard a certain Bollywood star has ordered a LP-700 in white.

I was informed of 8 cars ordered for India Bhai. I am aware of that one, but since this is Bollywood stars did not state it.
