Default Luxury Cars And Bikes Are Rotting At This Government Office

For enthusiasts like us its really heart breaking to see such machines coming down to rust.

There are 20 luxury cars and bikes that the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) impounded in Delhi, and that's where they're jailed up, biding their time.

For owners like Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, it is apparently cheaper to let their Lexus' stay safely parked here instead of paying hefty duties and fines involved in importing them. Its also reported that Amar Singh's Bentley, which had made the news 8 years ago, also rusts in peace here.

Guards roam the premises, but these beauties attract many to the CGO complex. Its saids that people who come to enquire about recruitment in various paramilitary forces deliberately visit its parking area to have a glimpse of these four-wheelers and two-wheelers.

Four super bikes, including this Suzuki Hayabusa, are also parked here.

These cars make it to to the country tagged as the purchase of an embassy in India (thus qualifying for zero percent duty). They are then handed over to their real owners a month later. The cars parked here have small dents and have got discoloured over time. Despite the auto sector demanding lower duties, India continues to levy high taxes on imported luxury cars and bikes.

This pictures definitely dont do justice to these mean machines.

^^ This made me shed tears of blood.
Letting them rot to the waves of nature is one while seeing them vandalized to some stolen parts is entirely another things that begs to start an entirely new topic to debate on.
Makes me question why the banks just auction it off instead of letting them rot considering them to be relatively new for the era.
Hopes on humanity lost lol :/

Those are some revelations! Of all the cars - to see the Rolls Royce Phantom in such a state is really shocking. If these are seized vehicles, how come the bank has not auctioned them and have left them to be vandalized.

The RR side windows have been shattered, SOS broken, windshield beading removed, bumper removed, dented at the back. I am sure the interiors have also been ripped off like the Aston Martin.

Those cars were owned by an actress Leena Maria who was caught for a 19 Crore cheating case with the Canara bank. The cars were impounded 2 years back. Heard that the cars will be auctioned off soon. But at this stage, I dont think the bank would get even one-tenth of the price of the cars when impounded. Here's a pic of the cars taken 2 years back, when she was arrested.

All the cars were forcefully taken. The actress lady didn't give them up so they had to break open windows to start them due to which aston martin air bags blew and the rolls couldn't be towed so they used JCB.

Ouch

Sad to see the Phantom and the Vantage in such pathetic state.
The Vantage, once owned by a bhpian from Kolkata, was such a sheer beauty !

Such a painful sight.
