Well Akshay that isn't completely true.. You know that..
Car can be imported under Carnet I guess, but thats like for 6 months or so. But the point is, one can't keep a Veyron here. No matter what. At least not legally. And we all know that Mr. Tata would never do anything illegal.

I just googled and found this -

Left-hand drive car imports allowed by Govt-India Business-Business-The Times of India

Now, Mr Tata is a big name in the Automotive Industry and I would think he can Import anything, Would probably be for R&D. The guy owns Jaguar and Land Rover !!!! Maybe he is aiming for other companies as well

Thats for testing purposes only sir. What would you expect mr Tata to do with that? Install the 4 turbo's on the Nano and launch a Nano Turbo!

A wee bit offtopic - Here is one of the 2 Falcon's he uses. I have masked the aircraft serial number for privacy and security. I have interior pictures as well but cannot post due to people on the plane.

Pre-Indica days, he had an Esteem in Bombay. Not sure now.
In Jamshedpur he is usually driven around in a black W211.
In Calcutta, you will see him either in a black Accord or a silver Camry, both are parked at Tata Center.

That's when the power of MS Paint comes into play. Do what I do - make everyone a golliwog with some black paintbrush effects.

I would love to be his exec assistant but unfortunatley that is not what it is! Two generations of my family have worked for the Tata's. And since I have a deep fondness for cars, I used to hang out at all the garages in different cities as a Kid when travelling with family. Some other info is known from very close observation.

I know that I could mask the faces but it is just too sensitive to put up on a public forum. Next time I am in one of the aircrafts, I will take a picture of the cabin.

Sweet! I have some more pictures of the Kingair / Pilatus / Caravan / Citation and even the yellow bonanzas from the 80's. They really have one of the nicest aircraft fleets in the country.
