Surprising to see Nag's GTR running in AP with a TN 66 (Coimbatore) RTO registration. Is this like the cars that run in Chennai with PY registration?

I'm pretty sure this is Narain Karthikeyan's GTR.

Yeah the present owner has purchased it from Narain Karthikeyan and has not bothered to get it re-registered in AP.

Err..that's not what you wanna call a Bus

RV, for westerners, for us, its a Car-a-Van and Vanity Van for the stars. Yes, most of them do own one, these are nothing compared to the DC ones owned by Shah Rukh and Sanjay Dutt which are built on a Volvo B7R base and tops at more than a whopping 2-3cr (Gulp!) depending on the options they tick.

EDIT: Prithviraj's Car-a-Van seems to be an Eicher. He earlier had a Tempo Traveller based one, this is a recent upgrade.

Oh yeah, now I remember. I forgot the car-a-van term earlier, btw any idea what does Lalettan have? In Mollywood, who has the best ones?

I have seen him drive around in this car at Padamugal. Don't remember the regn number, but it has a "Save Our Tigers" message covering the rear windscreen. I think it's nice to see a celebrity using his own car for the promotion of a good cause.
