I read in it in India Today or Outlook...the Bentley was gifted to AB by Amar Singh. Hope to become a politician and gift Bentleys to my pals too. Buddies...choose which color you want ur Bentleys in.

Call it the Mondeo / S Class phenomenon - There is no market beyond initial demand. Once people buy it, they do no not replace until some major revamp comes along or demand is spurred by a major price cut (sonata)

Nope AB dosent own the Bentley and No Amar Singh did not gift it to him. Its not Possible at all. The car was the Demonstration Car which was brought to show the Customers. As the day of the launch was AB's Bday Upaj Motors knew where else will the Rich & Powerful people be. Therefore it was seen there.

i will note down ur request aadix u will get ur bentley after approx 10 yrs of me being in politics. *
I have a friend in guntur and he was saying there are a lot of snazzy cars which he sees while he is in Hyd.
That was a smart move by upaj motors i guess. make everyone think AB has a bentley too. Nxt u see..everyone who has 2 crores in loose change queue up for a Bentley. Keeping up with the joneses..err the bachhans

not so fast dude!!! Maybach deliveries are approximated at 4 months after booking!! The car here is just for a spin for potential buyers.!! and also people just cant go and have a look. Thier Policy is :"You Don't Call Us, We'll Call You"!!

Considering Maybach have only sold 600 as opposed to the 1000 target, they are desperate !
