A little update on Mr Ratan Tata's fleet, he has recently acquired a LR Freelander 2 - 3.2 Petrol, grey in color and 2 Jaguar XF's.The Jag's were seen at the Taj launch yesterday.Will try to source the pics from my colleague in Thane, may take some time.The Freelander 2 is fully loaded and looks cool!

Those Jag's have been added to the Taj Fleet. It was mentioned in the ad they placed on the day of the re opening

So i email this link to my colleague who treats mr tata to show him... apparently mr tata was initially taken aback, then went through the whole thread and finally laughed his heart out and said he's glad that no one has managed to get the pics of all his best cars parked at alibaug.


EDIT: Anyone near alibaug with a camera?

Why not team-bhp meet at Alibag for lookout of mr. Tata's cars.

EDIT. AS MR Tata has gone through team-bhp website, may bhp bug bite him.

I happened to be on a flight with Mr. Tata. He was in the last row of 1st class I was in the first row in business. We sorta walked out one behind the other. He was not picked up in this S class. It was a chauffered car no doubt but I dont even remember it, maybe I wa sin awe just standing next to him but really I did not notice the car he was picked up in. Walked out like a simple man, not entourage, nothing. This was a week or so before the JLR deal.

Totally! No airs. Scary.

and Sam he still lives there. I have friends in the same building but wont mention the name. I request all TBHPians to not to discuss where Mr. Tata lives; he is a private man and might not like it.

I've seen in arriving is a white S-class from Delhi. As it was crouded I couldn't notice whether is S350 or S320 CDI. Anyway the wheels were the stock 7-spoke one available as standard in Indian version.
