I dont think that mammootty will sell his q7 as a young star has one. He doesn't have any such ego. Even if he is going to sell his car, this may not be the reason. He doesn't use a car for long; how long did he use his range rover?
He may not buy a cayenne as he always buy diesel cars. Thats better for him as he has a lot of running.

None of his cars have done more than 50k kms as far as i know.Probably he sells it before it reaches that mark.But i still dont think he's running his cars as much to dismiss the option of buying a petrol vehicle.Prithviraj's Q7 is not out on the roads yet.He'll be gettin the vehicle on may 6th or so.So if our superstar wants to sell his Q7 for that reason i think he still has another couple of months time.

Yeah you are right man !! I think the fact is he don't use a car for a long time so its quite natural,and any idea which one be the next in his list...may be a X6 or a Escalade

I remember seeing 3 Mercs parked there the last time I was at Taj. Didn't get a chance to make out which ones they were.
Ya Taj is near 4th Gate, but that road is PT Usha Road...

Anand, I've already mentioned that its not my word, its a roumor heard thru a friend of mine...I too dont think he has got such ego, but one thing for sure, he love to use those vehicles as well as other gadgets like watches, which is not with other co-stars...

Regarding his car turn-over, he might be using some cars for very less time. but he has used his X5 for about 3 years, his Landcruiseres for more than 2 years each, 3-series more than 5 years, Tata Estate 2-3 years, Contessa 3-4 years, etc...but Range Rover had a turbo failure, hence he couldnt use it much as it was in Garage half of its life with him...

Lets just say his Q7 isnt going anywhere right now. He loves it and enjoys driving it. Hanmust I think you're right on the car turnover for the most part. The 3-Series was with him for 4 years. You missed out the Toyota Lucida before the first of the Landcruisers and a Toyota Corona in the 80s and I guess a bunch of Indian cars. A new car is on the cards for next month.

I hope he is not going to sit in the passenger seat and let his chauffeur drive it.

Even before buying the Q7 mammootty has told that his favourite car is Porsche 911,and that he would like to buy one. But there is very little chance for him to buy and run a 911 in our roads..............................
