martini were basically gunmakers, hence their famous rifle on the badge, i have been lucky to have seen several examples of swiss cars like the martini, of which i have seen several, others i have seen are pic-pic and monteverdi. the other cars posted are a model T and and what i think is a late teens to early twenties peugeot.

. that is exactly the price i had offered awini. the car was not in great shape and the engine was missing a beat. there were minor things also that required attention.

Cant you guys revive and update that old Mr Amitabh Bachchan's Car Collection thread? It was one of my favourites and the reason I got hooked on T-Bhp. Im sure he has updated his garage or added some new cars.

it was DL registered but transferred to MH. my cousin handles the Bentley and Lambo arm for bombay and the plates carry his company name. the picture also looks like it has been taken outside his residence. it is the suburbs for sure.

his garage sure has been updated but since no pictures i dont think it has been revived. he has the ROLLS phantom and if i am to believe right he has also ordered the Bentley Arnage.

i dont think Maverick would want to put in a customers car picture and that too of someone of AB's caliber. i believe it is a white Phantom. i will try and get a list of his cars.

Thats what I meant by VVVIIIPPP pics Speedy. Whenever Maverick posts pics of cars of famous people he just says they're VIPs and based on how famous they are he increases the Vs the Is and Ps. So ABs bought a new S? Haha awesome I love how his cars are so uptodate

maybe Maverick has not put in pictures of ABs rolls as the whole world knows he has the silver one. it had come in the news also some time back.
as of what i know about AB he is fond of new things and keeps himself updated. he is also fond of cars and ugrades when a new model comes in.

No Speedy, The Silver Phantom AB posed next to was their demo car. They did it for some auspicious reason though I think it was for the promo of Eklavya when it came out. Maverick mentioned that ABs car is on order and its most probably white.
