Sir I take it that you know this person personally? Or have heard of him?

Well either way is just great, those who know him know what a great guy he is, but he would hate to have his name posted publically. Anyway seeing as you seem to know him you may PM me...

Apart from that, yes he's got one of the best collections of anyone known to me...One of the best, not THE best lol, not even with the Veyron!

What I don't seem to understand is how he manages to keep such collections so secretive. Even his collection here in Mumbai is not all that much known about. Great for him as he's rather a private person.

DocG
Since you are his friend, I am sure you can arrange a meeting for our friend Wasif. It would be very nice of you.

Mr. DH has a great collection including the S65 AMG, white gallardo, etc Heard hes getting an RHD convert SLR soon.

SLR is already his that means that RHD convert becomes pretty easy...The bigger cost I guess would be the car

Anyway Fireblader you know what recession and being newly married does to you, not sure when he's coming by Mumbai next though...have you sold any cars to him or his family?

Hmm I don't really know anything about DH's collection, met him only once (at his wedding!) but from the cars that showed up for the reception, I'm pretty sure he himself must have quite a collection. And the S65 AMG was present for the wedding, man what a sight.

Most exciting car ever driven by me is a NASCAR at Richard Petty Driving school on Las Vegas nascar track.
Next interesting one is Mustang convertible
Others-
1996 S320 (Just humangous but a bit slow as it was just a 320 inline 6)
2009 VW Beetle (Loved the shape, high speed stability for a small looking car)
