Hi guys,
I was just browsing thru Webshots gallery and found a pic of the Porsche 911. I had heard about this car almost 4 years back. It was brought by a movie director who had his office in the same building I had my computer classes. And the day I missed my class , he had got the car to office. Damn it. I never gotta see it till now.

Check this out guys :

This particular Porsche belongs to Sajid Nadiadwala. Had seen this car during a film shoot one morning at Nariman Point. This car was there in the movie ' Awara Pagal Deewana ' in a few shots with Akshay Kumar if you guys have seen the film.

Cheers

P.S. The car at the Speed Run was Ambanis 911 but was with the guy who bought it from Anil

If i am right this is a carrera 4 (type 964) imported from the UK remember seeing it up for sale somewhere. Pls note that the 964's are very difficult to work on .

mh04x911 is definitely Anil Ambani's. When BSM tested the 911, they had mentioned that the speedo has the initials A.A [Anil Ambani] and it was open to guess. The same car was also featuyred oon the front page of Mid Day when his cars were for sale.

Hey,

The two figures that come to mind are 65L and 90L... maybe some1 will give you a more definite figure
I had a friend who used to make regular visits to the ambani garage, the thing is that it is so damn big and multi-storey that u dont get to see everything. I know there is a dark blue M3 in there for one of the kids. Also a couple of go-karts. Rumours of a 575.... cant really think of nething else at the moment!
