A 95 Lexus LS400 for 30 laks , what crap !!!

even today , u can get this car for less than 12 laks
that too a good condition car.

saw a 1996 Lexus at Lakozy motors service center (bbay)
Asking price was 12 laks , which can definately be negotiated
and the car had complete service history.
Single owner car. MH-04 registered

Additional 20 lak approx for the Reliance tag is foolishness.

I dont think the car must have fetched that much.

Seen the white 911 (996) Turbo in Juhu escorted with armed bodyguards in a black Scorpio. Had a front cover like the one below. There was also some patchwork on the right hand side behind the door. This 911 looks much better than the 997.

Oops sorry. You're right Klaus. A 993 911. If this is the only white 911 in Mumbai, then it is (or was) owned by the producer. Anyways here's the pic :

Ambani's 911 (blue one) indeed had 7k kms when it was sold to the Chougules. The car was sold much below the quoted price of 50 lacs. It is still with them very low mileage.

the white porsche was for sale a while back dont know if it got sold.

@ Benson the porsche was then resold in an auction and someone beat me too it. there were four other cars that were auctioned too including a Sl. it was not an open bidding so the price that he bought it is not known. there was no price quoted by the Ambani's. the car can be seen on worli seaface taking rounds once in a while.

The white one was on sale sometime back but I guess it was not sold due to some homologation problems

none of the cars imported directly ever got homologated, so why would this be a hinderence in the cars sale. dont think this would be the reason for the car not getting sold. it might be the price that the owner might be asking for it.

i love the 993... it is one of the most beautiful 911's ever. I have one sitting in london, but cant bring it here since it is a lhd. I'm pretty sure the white 993 is not a TURBO.
