Vkochar what you are saying about the 15 minutes report on CNN is quiet unsual.According to you Mr.Tata is driving a Bugatti Veyron.Do you have more details about it ?I tought that no Bugatti Veyron was imported to India.

No, They did not show any footage but did mention his name and the car.

But nevertheless I do not doubt him at all. Hopefully something would come up soon ( Like a Pic ) maybe so it will clear all controversies. Cheers !!

And BTW to clear the controversy about Mr. Tata driving a Veyron, It is true ( It is a LHD BTW ). I just saw a footage on TV today stating the big cars owned by hotshots in India and his name was mentioned. It was CNN I think that was showing this 15 minute report.

Zonda in India !! Wow !! Corporate India is getting richer !!
Aha, now I hope you're right. By the way, if I'm not mistaken even the Zonda is produced only as a left hand drive car, so I wonder how these cars are coming in.

Nope. Zonda's are made in RHD as well. I think the Koenig's are made in LHD only.

Its been quite some time since our guys have been saying that veyron has indeed landed on indian shores. In fact Mav also had posted the same some time back, but i guess that wasnt the case. But does someone really have a good proof to substantiate this mr.tata's veyron. Did some googling but still didnt get a single hint of this . IMO If something is not in google then it doesnt really exist . somebody even googled out a boxter in vishakapatnam using google, so i am sure this tata veyron should defenitely show up . The suspense is killing me.

Belive me its really there. Its only a matter of time and the pictures would be on the forum. Lets just say some of the people are obliged to keep their mouth shut.

i dont know about other cars which he has but i am sure about two of them..
one is tata indigo marina other is old honda civic which he himself drives. My friend knows a person working with a brokerage firm who had a meeting with him in mumbai's 5 star hotel and he was taken away by his modesty. That chap told us he went there in bmw 3 series and was taken aback seeing Ratan Tata self driving old civic.

Ratan Tata has a 2007 cadillac convertible an E class too. seen him driving the Cadillac on Marine drive. i dont think he has the Veyron otherwise it would have been seen on a sunday afternoon with him behind the wheel. right now i am sure he would be busy with the Land Rover and Jaguar. so you could add these two to his list of cars.

@ Cyrus. that information was to be under wraps till the car landed here. i did not want to discuss it till it hit the shores.
