Nope Kasli, the red car you're talking about is an 840 (V-8) and not a 850 (V-12). The car was bought somewhere around 1997 in India and was tuned by Racing Dynamics. It had the most awesome wheels and the submerged roar from the super tuned V-8 coming out from the quad exhausts was something to die for. Back then I took a spin in the car with the owner and it was a V-8 on steeroids. The car has been sucked dry and abused very, very badly. Since then the wheels have been changed, the car is in complete neglect and as you know money is no object, its still languishing away in its parking at a local Garage.

thank you gogi bhai.

rajiv's car is the 840ci. i did not know he had it tuned. he had at a later stage got the kit for the car and the wheels were changed to the most desirable wheels. he had stopped useing the car after his personal turmoils. the car stood neglected along with the other cars in his garage. did not know it has moved to some local garage. sometimes money does become an issue, it just works against you. any idea what he plans to do with the car ?
there is a green 850 in bombay as well and belongs to a prominent family from south bombay. this car is stock with company fitments no modifications.

amatmo the car has been in the same olive green colour from when it was imported. the picture that you posted of the car has been taken at night and hence looks black. we know the owners well and see the car almost everyday down his office building.

alright i dont doubt you if you know them so well
just instigating you to say there is one more of these and then that would have been the news of the day

BTW i heard there is one more in delhi owned by shah suri is it true?

Hey, I've seen this too. I think it's called Carter Rd? There was a girl standing inside, head out of the sunroof, hair flying. Classic moment.
