Default supercars/luxury cars in delhi

Been seeing a couple of delectable cars in Delhi for the past couple of months. So I thought I'd put 'em all together so that it could be added to the citywise listing of supercars in India. And yes, these are cars that I've seen myself...not quoting from sources Sorry guys, no pix though.

Toyota Supra (red)

Honda NSX (red)

Lamborghini Countach (black)....saw it at the Intercontinental and supposedly belongs to owner Lalit Suri.

BMW M3 convertible (black).....belongs to Vinay Rai, owner of Rai University.

BMW 5 series new (dark blue)

BMW 7 series new (2 of them, one dark green and another golden beige)

MB SL55AMG new (black)

Porsche 911 Turbo - 993 model (black)

Bentley Arnage, the one being sold in India (deep red)

Havent seen any Ferraris though!!

760iL has around 4 inches added in the rear
L7 is a very limited long wheel base version with about one foot added on. One for sale in the back of ACI

there is a new 745Li in delhi as well, parked at hayatt most of the times..and i know the countach is lalit suri's but as far as i remember it is Dimond Graphite or silver and not black, until he colored his car rescently..

aldo there is a 355 red color with a guy called bhaiya..thats his last name, lives in VV, he has like 10-12 cars..LX, S, E, 7 etc..including this one..

then there is the oil magnet..i am forgetting his first name..his last name is khetan he is also a car freek, buys/changes cars every 3-4 months..I am not fully aware of his collection, but my driver use to drop his cars to his house when he was working for staya bagla..

a judge or something has an S600 also..in pancheel..drove it like 2000km in 3-4 years...foolish people..

anyhow delhi we dont get to see much but I know people have been hidding a lot of cars..

so i was told on this forum...but i dont think he would be driving it

i think he gets chauffeured in it, which is even more insane...why I mean ok be down to earth, but with some sort of distinction..I dont know..if i were the PM..i might not rolling in million dollar 7s but something much better than a M800..

I wouldnt call it "hiding". Probably these guys get it out in the night only to avoid too much (unwanted) attention and when the roads are empty enough to really make the most out of their cars.

exactly...not really hidding..but bring it out on very special occasions..i am telling u this..cuz ppl are scared..it happened to my mama itself..who got a call from from some mob guy asking for money..just cuz he use to come to his office in fancy cars and his secretary was a rogue mob agent...(sounds very filmy but it was in papers), Its just cuz my nana is very influential that he somehow got through to the mob guy through a contact and asked him to give it up..reason y my dad is very scared as well..to invest into something like this..)

this has become a big business..mobsters hire pretty girls pay them well to infest office, get info about any overly showy ppl..anyhow..I know bbay has many more cars..but delhi doesnt have less ppl who can afford, last I heard the population who could was a littl higher..but I still wonder y it happens..
