This guys is most probably Mr. R M Mohite who's a well known industrialist in Kolhapur...he is into mining, constructions etc and many other businesses ...one of his bungalows is near my aunt's place that's how i know about him...i have seen a couple of mercs, pajeros, landcruisers, et al parked in his garage....btw can u guys even imagine that this guy never ever attended school and can't even sign....he started out a labourer in the coal mines and struck gold in every venture that he put his hands into....

not very sure whether he is the same guy who's ordered these fabulous vehicles but there's a high probability that its him....

Youre right. As far as I heard this dude has 33 cars which includes exotics and luxury machines.He has 2 of each in the same colour.One example is kept in Kolhapur while the other is in his Mumbai stable

Well this thread has been asleep for a bit!....

Last evening i just saw a Silver SL55 AMG on marine drive, it had tinted glass and i couldnt tell which wheels it had because it was in motion.
This is NOT the same SL55 from the speedrun (different number plate&tinted glass).

cheers
R

ps - sorry i dont have a fonecam.... :P
Also, i guess its the same car F50 was talking about in this thread-

Question The Maharaja's OF Kolhapur....

[color=Blue][font=Comic Sans MS]Hi All,

I have no doubts that these cars are ordered for the guy in Kolhapur... I have a good friend of mine who is one of the trustees and a pujari in the famous Mahalaxmi temple and he was reciting stories of two business tycoons who compete over cars... one of them has all Mercs and the other has all BMW's ... its like one of them buys an S-class and the other buys a 7-Series to keep up.... well a brief description... Mr X comes to Mahalaxmi temple every morn in his M-Class from one gate and Mr Y enters Mahalaxmi temple in his X5 using Gate #2.... now this is what I have latest heard from him... Mr X has a son who owns a monster in Kolhapur and this guy is also noted as one of the most youngest businessmen in Asia.... I know u guys wouldnt guess or believe this......... The MONSTER is non other than a Lamborghini Diablo.... my pujari friend who is here in Pune has friendly relations with his father and also with Mr X's son....... he is a farmer as well as a business professional ... I also heard that this guy owns 80% of the petrol pumps on the left hand side going from Kolhapur to B'lore.... also something about 75% of the sugarcane plantations on the same highway....
I wont believe all this to be true though all this has been told to me by a Pandit....I have demanded Pics from him as he claims this guy to be his very close pal.... will post them as soon as I can.... till then.... keep searching....[/font][/color]

GTO I have heard about this guy in Kolhapur before and the Diablo is just part of his garage. He even has a few Beemers, Mercs, a coupla Ferraris and well he has a Viper too. Last I heard he some 33 cars which contained a few exotics so the Phantom Hummer etc maybe ordered by him.

Dippy

P.S If owns pumps sure he can afford to drive these cars arond

Since I am working on the Phantom showcase for Sunday, i can tell you for sure, the Phantom isn't owned by this Mr. Mohite from Kolhapur. Its a businessman who's recently come to fame for buying some "things", sorry but i can't take his name for the obvious reasons.
