Now who on earth can argue with an automotive analogy like this!! Good one R.

Butttttttttttt my point is that, even when I am 60...or for that matter lets take my fathers preferences as they would be pretty much in sync with what AB may be looking for...Not hard core handling but more of luxury with a classy touch. My reasoning is that if you are going to spend 7 - 8 crores on your garage (rough calculation of ABs cars) why not make sure that it has the best steeds in it? Why compromise? It really doesnt make sense to blow so much dosh and still end up with second best. Like the idiots who end up with a HUMMER H2!!! With a price tag of $60000 - 70000 on the road, they think they are ending up with a smaller version of the original H1...Fat chance, No one bothered to tell them that its actually a Chevy Suburban with hummer lights and a grille on it. The off-roading capability of the H2 is not a patch on the original H1, heck even cheaper Jeeps can kill it in off-road escapades. The fault lies with the consumer who opts for the H2, as he or she did not do the relevant research.

White makes the SL500 lose all its beautiful lines. Havent seen his Range Rover. He also has a 7 series i guess. Have seen one inside his bungalow. I doubt Amitabh drives the SL500. He wudnt be comfortable in it. My bro seen him in the SL500 only once when he got delivery of the car. And he was driving it.

He does have a 760Li White with White interior. I know this cuz when we bought the S my dad even looked at the 7 as an option that was when the dealer told us.

hey guys i seen ABs white Range Rover today. And I feel that his car is also a Jhol car. It was parked at the old bungalow. It had a MH 02 JA registratiion. As far as I know his Range Rover arrived after the SL500. The SL500 has a NA regn. So how can the RR that arrived after it have an old regn. Even if the RR arrived before the SL, it wudnt have been ateast 2 yrs before the SL.

V12 the RR was bought from Navnit Mtrs. So i dun think there'd be something fishy abt it..
