You bet! One lucky person!
Ah..some people have all the luck in the world. Nothing short of bliss to drive around in a machine such as this.

I knew it was him too. Have met on a couple of occasions through a common friend but that was quite some time back. His blue Scooby and CL55 AMG are very popular on the forum.

Holy moly.

It merely takes one of these pics to dawn on you how massive the machine really stands. Just look at that "puny" Lancer beside the GTR. Furthermore, just compare those humongous wheels to the ones on the Mitsu....!

Understandably, the GTR has become far more popular than one expected it to. 10 years ago, no-one would barter seven zeros in Indian currency for a Japanese supercar. Italian & German ones, oh yes, as you could snob the hood ornament at those cold corporate faces. But never an NSX. Or an R34.

Times sure are changing. For the better, apparently...

Yes, good to know that most of these cars are no longer purchased purely for snob value, but for motoring enthusiasts alike. Ironically though, I spotted my first NSX in Delhi in RK Puram, Sector-12, beside a communal garbage dump in 1998. Imagine my surprise, as I'd just returned after four years in Tokyo. Had to pinch myself, no joke.

Yeah those 20" rims make the Lancer's 13s look like a complete joke!

Lols @ F50! I never noticed the taxi-walla chugging away at his bottle till I saw your post!

Hi,

Yes I do know him. I believe his other recent acquisitions are a 911 Turbo & a M5 if I am not mistaken.

that is correct, he has the 911 turbo (not quite sure of the m5), which is in the process of being upgraded to a gt2.

GTR is 50L Ex Showroom price. According to the website, Now how much did the guy spent in importing it can go up by any amount.

Just wondering what fuel would he be using?
