I learnt to drive in India so the first car that I took to steering was the Maruti 800 and then the Zen.

Being in Dubai, I've had the privellege to drive a Honda Civic, Honda CRV, Toyota Prado, Mercedes E240, Range Rover Vogue and lastly the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S.

I hope to get my hands on my friends Porsche Cayman S in Goa sometime soon next month

**Can we please keep the discussion limited to Supercars and Exotics**

Was on the phone with one of my friends recently who is currently settled in Dubai, he was inviting me over to visit.

Cars he owns include:
Zonda F
LP 640
LP 560-4
M6, M5
X6
F430 spyder
Spyker C8
SLR McLaren

And he's got one of the Veyrons on order...Illustrious garage there. Nothing out of the ordinary for an Arab, except he's Indian, and from Mumbai...

Please refer the thread below which shall guide you. Most of us use PCs. I think Quickdrw is surrounded by Mac.

It would be difficult to meet him unless you do business with him or are a close friend of a friend.

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.

That is one amazing collection! He's got everything that every petrolhead has wet dreams of. Is he the only Indian to own a Veyron??

Nope the first Indian to own a Veyron is in the UK, his brother crashed his, and the car was totaled. I have heard that he bought another one to replace his, except that he got the Pur Sang version instead.

The one that this exotic owner has ordered is also one of the limited edition Veyrons, but even he is not sure yet as to which model he'll be getting.

Anyway I'm sure every petrol head dreams of the Zonda F, but his is also completely carbon fiber and in that typical carbon fiber look.

With great power comes great responsibility. Limited edition or not, a Veyron is a Veyron. And boy, he is really, really lucky.

That s an amazing collection to see docg. What are you waiting for.Catch the next flight dude.
would also like to add to my list..this one i just sat in and it was my best.THE ENZO.
I had gone to kl for the F1 and ferrari had just opened the biggest ferrari showroom in the world (outside of italy). The chinese sales person was so friendly he let me sit in the enzo and started the engine of th new 16 m scuderia. I spent a few hours there.Next to that was a harley davidson showroom and cafe and maserati too.Was an amazing experience before the race
