Smile Best Collection of Cars/Bikes

Through a friend of mine, I got to see a mind blowing collection of cars on Sunday. Unfortunately couldnt take any pictures. The cars and bikes are kept in this large garage with each car in some sort of a Chamber to keep dust and dirt away. Each car is in a chamber like this. The cars in the collection were Ferrari 355, Ferrari 575, Ferrari 246 (Dino), Aston Martin Volante, Porsche 911/993, Mercedes SL 55, SL 190 (old classic), Mercedes G Wagen, Porsche Cayenne Turbo, 3 Range Rovers, Hummer H2, BMW M5, 745i, Lamborghini Murcielago, Corvette, Nissan Skyline GTR, Harley Ultra Electraglide, Honda Goldwing, VTX(?), CBR 900, CBR 1100, Kawasaki ZZR. I think I spent most of my time there writing down the list . I wish I could hv taken some pictures.? Would be interesting to know about other such awesome collections in India.

Lucky you - we can all guess who owns it! Shame that none of these are enjoyed in practice. Cars will not last long, like houses, they need to be used or rot sets in - rubber perishing/ sludge/ internal corrosion

Please respect privacy and do not think of posting pictures in private places unless they are taken with the owners consent or the vehicles are seen on public roads/ public places

hhhmm i think all those cars are in bangalore the last time i heard of them..all bangaloreans know whom these beauties belong to dont we guys..and ya its a shame that none of these cars are seen on the roads..like ajmat says they just end up rusting in their garages..its about time we give the owner a small visit and invite him to the forum..maybe then we can get these to burn rubber on the tracks..what say guys..dom u listening pal !!!!

Hey Mclaren1885, why dont you tell us the name of the owner? After all no one is seeing these machines and no photographs are available either....

(OT mods, OT) @scuderiablr, have you noticed another member named scuderia (a BHPian) in our forums...?

Im sorry but I cant reveal the name. It wouldnt be fair for me to do this. It didnt seem like the cars were not used. The guy I was with said the owner uses them on weekends and drives them on ring road every saturday and sunday.

Absolutely splendid, even more so, as one knows that that is not his entire collection!

This is less than half of his collection. I think this is the bit that sits in the States alone. Because he has a lot of cars, including a 90's vintage S Class, an old MG roadster, a Ferrari 328, and an Aston Vanquish right here in Bangalore.

A Vanquish in Bangalore? What a man of style.
