No, it isn't the red one. It's a dark maroon one with KA registration. The colour has faded and has lost its shine. I will try getting more details and pics when I pass by next time.
If I am right, this belonged to Vijay Mallya and was used on his Kunigal Stud farm which he no longer owns

Correct on both points.
The Mallya car is now in Hyderabad.

I believed this is ex-Mallya as well? Used to be kept at his Alibaug farmhouse. I presume it was to ferry guests from the jetty, had seen pics of the car at the jetty on multiple occasions. I'm told it's now in Goa after being auctioned off.

Ya, thats Mallya's car which was sold out in an auction held couple of months back.

Mr Chandrashekhar's car is brownish maroon color, W463 series with a winch in the front, I think there is a pic of the same in the thread itself

Thank you so much V12, this one was in Delhi for sale couple of years back, it was again an ex-embassy vehicle, I have given an offer but missed it as I was traveling on those days. So trying to figure it out.
