Chopper ? You must be kidding. Because, Majority of Domestic choppers I've seen had no wheels to drive it out of a hangar and is usually parked in what they call a , 'Helipad'.

The Garage door is too small for a Helicopter unless it is a really small one.

That is one of the biggest and most diverse garage in India , I guess. I cant see the Ferrari in any of the pics, so that means there is more somewhere else. Green Energy is the way to go

Thank you Sir for enlightening me,I thought they were usually parked in basement parking .AFA wheels are concerned, Landing skids can be attached with the wheels to take it in and out of the hanger,something like this

The reason i asked whether the place stores a chopper was Ghodawats own a Eurocopter EC120 which is relatively smaller in size(Height: 3.4 m (11 ft 2 in),Length: 9.6 m (31 ft 5 in) and Rotor Length: 9.6 m (31 ft 5 in) which i think can be folded.And going by the figures it seems possible to store helicopter there...

That is why I said, "Domestic Choppers". Do you think someone will buy all that machinery to tow it out or would they leave some space in a open area for the Pad ?

Well u don't require a towing thing to get it in and out, that can be done by a tractor, i have seen an example(read Cessna 4XX) being towed in and out by a tractor.I dont think the owners(G's) must be using it as a daily driver(flyer!) to park it on pad all the time.Whatever, but i have got more curious to know whats behind the doors, hopefully Mav5490 can shade some light..

With all those beasts why would I want a chopper? I would eat,sleep,work and live in a different car everyday.
But seriously looking at his line up of cars in front of the office, I doubt he will hide a chopper inside.

Mr. Ghodawat has a chopper. But i don't think he hides it behind that door.

Here are some more pics of the same collection taken last year. Dint post it for privacy reasons. Since the covers are off now, I think its ok to do so. This is by far the most diverse collection I know of. And the diversity also shows through the number plates, with plates from all around the country. There are ordinary numbers, but most numbers are made of 5's in 3 and 4 digit forms. Also these pictures just give u a glimpse of the collection and there are several cars not featured in the pics.

From a Fezza to a Nissan Micra and everything in between including a Cadillac, Chrysler, Jaguar and even a RR Phantom. And you say this is just a part of the garage?

Oh man this is perhaps one of the best collections in Indian soil. I'm glad you posted the pics, tuner.

Awesome is the word. Just awesome !!

. Inexplicable to the power of infinity. How can someone have so many cars? How many people are there in the family. I have become a fan of Sanjay Ghodawat. What a personality. The pics are awesome Tuner. Its a beautiful place too.

Ah..Mr. Ghodawat, I like that Audi TT of yours.
Mr. Ghodawat: Hhmm..let me remember, do I own one..Oh yeah!! That white beauty thats lovely. I keep on forgetting.

This is any day the best and the most diverse collection in India.
