I'm finding this one really hard to believe. Buying a veyron requires a) a crap load of money and b) some serious financial credentials. The actually check your liquid assets.

If it's true .. daaaaamn. I'm going to be in Bombay on May 29th and I think I'll be veyron hunting.

Sad thing is, in Bombay, it's going to be a poser car. The roads suck, theres no way you can use even a tenth of that power. Unless it's going to sit in Mallyas private collection.

Anyway, keep us posted whoever is in the know.

Any idea if it is Sunny/Baba of Diwan/Dheeraj Builders? When I met them in July of last year they said they were expecting something really really big. They had the second H2 in Bombay and it was even bigger (not size but news) than that.

Sorry to burst your bubble folks but Veyron in India i dont think so!!!! Its too far fetched to land in India at least at such an early stage of this cars life. It hasnt even being sold in the Uk or Middle east through private sale or dealers, which makes it very hard for that car to land on the sub continent.
And besides its only being made in LHD so that goes out of the window.
I reckon someone on this site is trying to make a ripple! and cause a stir. You get my drift!!

TROLLING is the correct word, eh?

I'm not buying this at all.

$3.5 million (12 crores) for a car is nuts anywhere in the world. That kind of a money to park the thing in Bombay to pose / show off is ludicrous. We just don't have the roads to use this thing to even 5% of its potential. Maybe it's a car collector? Personally, if I was collecting a car and spending that kind of cash, I'd be looking at a vintage Ferrari or a gullwing merc or an Aston Martin ... a car like this is begging to be driven not kept in a showroom or museum.

Sorry, to each one his own, but supercars in India really are for the status and looks, right? A lambo going up Marine Drie might look cool as hell but it sure ain't the same as the same Lambo pushing the limit on the Autobahn or the American freeways. Cars like that are begging to be driven ... that's the point of buying them (in my mind at least).

I'm just not a big fan of posers. Buy a super car - basically a street legal race car - then race the damn thing. And you better be able to drive well.

My personal view -

Why does everyone here doubt the purchasing power of some people in this city?

Think about it this way.

If there was a person who liked cars, and could spend <15% of one week's income to buy the fastest car in the world, which he really liked (not to mention the king of the hill status). Why wouldnt he?

PS - And the fact that its LHD doesnt matter. When are laws ever obided in this country?

Question Any News On BUGATTI VEYRON????

Hi Guys,

Was wondering what happened to the rumours of the mighty Veyron being in Mumbai????? I feel the news was absolutely rubbish and am aware that the modds locked the last topic where people boasted about catching a glimpse of the car but never posted any pictures!!!!! The point of this thread is not intended to spread such rumors but assess the truth to the whole issue.

I wanted to ask all those who replied to the previous (locked) Bugatti thread, and all those who apparently "SAW" the car, that where have they gone now? Havent they collected enough proof to support their story?

Is there a Veyron in India???????


Thanks

Redcandle



P.S. - Dear Modds, if this thread tends to follow the same path as the last one please lock this as well.

you never know...but again until we see it , nothing is proven..

but i am telling you, If I had 5% of his mighty fortune, you would see cars like the veyron, Zonda F, CXX, LP640 etc in my garage in india..so its not the money which is a big factor, but really the point of having such a car in india..
