Talking of exotics, the Sanmar group promoters have their personal helicopter housed in a hangar at their office on OMR. You can have a glimpse from the bridge jus before their premises, quite a scenic location...

From the financial results for the quarter ended Dec 31, 2008 of Chemplast Sanmat Ltd,

"Includes profit on sale of helicopter for Rs 248.80 lakhs during the quarter"

Ref: http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...240109_rst.pdf

In a related note, try googling the keywords "civilaviation.nic.in XXXXXX". Replace XXXXXX with popular company names and follow the link... You would be in for a surprise to know how many of them own choppers and jets for private use

Eg : civilaviation.nic.in Chemplast Sanmar , civilaviation.nic.in jsw steel

Staying in line with Chennai Citi Centre, saw this beauty in their basement car park. Saw a bold sticker on the rear windshield " DAD'S GIFT ". (sigh) wish I could show my dad

What is that building near the Nandanam Mosque where the Bentley and RR are stationed ?

I see it almost daily around noon on the way to work.

When you come from Saidapet towards Nandanam signal there is a mosque on the left after the junction where the vehicles from T.Nagar join Mount road. This building is just next to the mosque. Mosque is more or less opposite to the YMCA Golf course entrance.

@mission_safari - That's the old Huma Hospital building, I'm not sure if they own a Rolls Royce or a Bentley but I saw a Lincoln SUV there sometime back and they also own a maroon London taxi.

I've been inside that compound. They have an exotic Austin as well as a CJ 3? too. Infact, its a house on Mount Road

And they park atleast 10 cars inside that gate! With a Watchman to keep away prying eyes!
