That would be the old SLK. He has that car for many years now. Both father and son drive it.

Azhar had a few Mercs in his garage but I had read somewhere in the press that he sold atleast 3 of them to fund his alimony after his divorce with his first wife.

Good choice of car as a gift by lalit modi to yuvraj. So "apparently" this guy has a flair for cars, but the question here is what does lalit modi own. He might not be a cricketer but post IPL he is probably one of the most popular names in Indian cricket. I am sure this guy has an exotic or two in his garage.

Lucky Indian Cricketers..
Once an Indian cricket writer hired a cab in Australia which was driven by a man who spoke in detail about cricket.

He was surprised when he found out that the driver was none other than the famous Australian wicketkeeper of the Allan Border era, Tim zoehrer!!!

No wonder why Australian cricketers are jealous of Indian cricketers..

Its not the case anymore with Ausie cricketers.Its been reported that Ricky Ponting has an Enzo and Michael Clarke has a Range Rover and gifted his Girl friend an Aston Martin DB9.

Yes Yuvi had a yellow/golden M3 which has now been sold to someone else in Delhi.
We have pics of the same in the Delhi supercars thread.

Lalit Modi has a Blue 6-series. Saw him getting down from it in one of the BCCI meetings.

Dude, the date of publishing the story is April 19th, 2009, and below is a quote from the article

"His in-your-face style rankles critics. But Modi is anything but a wallflower. He still drives a Mercedes, wears his Armanis ....."
