The customs yard (containing 140 or so rotting imports) at Mumbai Port Trust has been featured in this month's issue of Top Gear India.

Cheers.

E34 BMW 5 Series parked on a roadside in Andheri East. I hope someone plans to restore it because down the road there are quite a few garages, although doesn't seem probable.

d) that list is branchwise, so scroll down until you reach "western regional office"
e) further scroll down the list until auction date is 'October 13, 2014', the Last one ie seventh auction of the date is your target!
hope this helps all interested : )

& do me a favour, after inspection, please post pics of these supercars using your smart phones and post them below! the noble gesture - its appreciated!

please be cautious as someone wise has rightly said that 'the cheapest Mercedes might turn out to be the most expensive one!'

check in detail in the RTO whether the stated number registration plate is a fictitious one, and if the parking area was water flooded during monsoons etc.

buyer beware!

good luck !
Below is the screenshot of the list.
Collected from MSTC website.
download it and zoom the pics.

guys please note that the maximum rate of import duty on luxury cars is to Fall steeply in a year or two , in line with other South East Asian countries. New luxury cars would by charged a reasonable rate of import duty. bid cautiously keeping this in mind.
