List with prices.
  1. Rolls Royce Phantom - 4 Crores
  2. Bentley Continental GT - 1.7 Crores
  3. Mercedes SL500 - 1 Crore
  4. Porsche Cayman S - ~0.6 Crore
  5. Range Rover - 1 Crore
  6. Lexus LX470 - 0.7 Crore
  7. Mercedes E Class - 0.45 Crore
  8. BMW X5 - 0.7 Crore
  9. BMW 7 Series - 1.2 Crores
  10. Mercedes S Class?? - 0.7 Crore
  11. FORD MONDEO!!!!!!! - 0.18 crore
  12. Oh and we forgot the BMW 645ci - 0.80 Crore !
Thats a sum total of ~13.03 crores worth of Cars. Which is still nothing considering Big B himself makes around 17-19 crores a year.

Also someone was saying Abhisheks driving a Black X5 now. Has he replaced the Silver? What news of the S and 6 after the floods?

Also I do second that the Phantom will suit Mr. Bachchan perfectly, hes probably the one person with the kind of class and personality that can carry off the Phantom. The Continental GT is definitely perfect for Abhishek cause he doesnt seem like a supercar kind of guy, more like big coupes. And what better than a Bentley. Basically the Bachchans have cars that rappers in America have. Only the Italians are conspicuous by their absence in this high end garage. If they've bought a Cayman, a Ferrari or Lambo must be next. They've already covered Mercedes, BMW, Porsche, Lexus, Land Rover, Bentley, and now Rolls-Royce. Think a Quattroporte, an Arnage and a Gallardo, or 599 Fiorano would complete the collection. An Arnage will look awesome on Mr. Bachchan.

I totally agree with both of you. A perfect match of car and owner.

PS: I am expecting Karan Johar to "gift" SRK a Maybach in the next few months for hosting KBC.

Like i mentioned earlier, the Quattroporte will complete the collection. But a Gallardo,etc wouldnt quite fit in-They are too LOUD for their personality imo.

I guess yeah they're not gallardo type of people. Im now thinking Aston Martin AM Vantage or a DB9. They could definitely pull off an Aston.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee has been sold. In fact the present owner has put it up for sale on some used auto portal. He proudly proclaims that its superstar Abhishek Bachchans personal Import. 1997 Model Year imported in 2001.

Ok ! So its registered in Delhi ... on Amar ssssingh's name ... but with a Mumbai Address ???

From TOI :

NEW DELHI: The super-expensive Bentley car imported by Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh as a gift for actor Abhishek Bachchan on his birthday appears to have run into objections by the Delhi transport department.

Amar Singh had imported the car to Delhi to be taken to Mumbai and had sought transit registration from the department.

Examining the details provided in the application by Singh, officials said that the Mumbai address given by the minister was incorrect.

"We are looking into the matter," said transport minister Haroon Yusuf.

However, sources said if the information provided was found incorrect, Amar Singh might face criminal proceedings.

Nobody seem to be bothered about the fact that from where Amar singh got all this money to gift it to A or B. I hate these politicians.
