True, True.

An MP in B'lore got questioned for having a golden number plate on his Range Rover. It came in a newspaper.

That same Bentley is there in the pics of the Black Exotic Meet. I remember there was a discussion about number plates on that thread too!

Hahaha! That's funny. He's got quite a few Bentleys but nowhere near 20! And he got the R8, he supposedly test-drove the LP560 but returned it or something

28 Bentleys + one or two Rolls + Cayennes, CRV's, Mercs etc. + Lambo's +R8= not enough space in house.

I don't want to offend you or anything, but 20 sounds greatly exaggerated. He's (in)famous for "testing" a lot of cars where he keeps them for a couple of days and buys them if he likes them and returns them if he doesn't (did it with a Blue Superleggera and White LP560 amongst other cars). And this testing leads to a lot of rumours that he owns them even after he's returned them.

That said, I know he has every car in the Bentley stable. 2 Azures, 3 Brooklands, 2 Continental GT's, 1 GTC/ GT Speed and 3 Flying Spurs. That makes up the correct count, because the Bentley dealer told me at one point that there were 17 Bentleys in Hyd (8 of his and 9 others), and after that he ordered 3 Brooklands (his latest order).

8+3=11. The correct (and more realistic, if I may say so) figure AFAIK.

Yes. could be, thats why I said it was approx 20, any ways he seems to be very happy with the bentley dealer by the way he is buying them and the Lambo's! He might be getting an LP 640 as well..

Yeah, he's supposedly Exclusive Motors' single biggest customer. And I don't think he'll go for the LP640. He seems happy with cars around 1-3 crores but not more..

I dont think the R8 belongs to the Deccan chronicle guy.
I am saying it because when i was taking the pics of R8 at latitudes I spoke to the chauffeur and he said that it belongs to G.Reddy son of an MP.
I might be wrong as it was as per the chauffeur.

red one belongs to Gautam Reddy, as you said. by the way he runs KMC construction company.

the white one belongs to the deccan chronicle guy.
