My parents know that guy quite well and say he isnt the type to roam around with so many security people.

Dad says it could be a couple of other people from a certain big INFOrmation technology related company. Some of them do stay in Jayanagar.[/quote]

If you guys are talking abt the S600 of the bluelines guy then yes its him....i think it was one of the first S600's in bangalore.Anyway dont know who your parents know dude but i know the guy very well.and he travels with atleast one or two scorpios behind at all times.So if it was a white scorpio then its definitely them.and the transport is just a front its not his main business he has a lot of other large scale industries.

AAah. I wasnt talking abt that guy. If it is that guy, then I have no clue about him.

I was referring to another person.

The dude who owns bluelines is a close family friend, and he also lives in Mumbai. He shuttles between Bangalore and Mumbai. The S600 is only one feather in his cap. The cars he keeps here in Mumbai are no less!

A W12 A8 and a V12 760Li amongst many, many others! Funny though he doesn't keep security cars with him when he travels here in Mumbai...

And yes he has his hands in so many other things too!

cheers:

Ya, I mentioned the same guy. When I was studying in Bangalore in 2002-03 I was staying at Jayanagar & used to pass in front his house. Normally there used to be tight security in front of his gate & we used to see some real exotic coming out & going inside his house. I've also seen a Hayabusa that time.

I know that he used to shuttle in between Mumbai & Bangalore as we were also into transport earlier. But I was wondering what is his ride in Mumbai. Anyway impressed with his taste to thirsty 12-cylinders.

I've been a frequent visitor to the lane he lives on. I've spoken to that guy and he admits that the cars he feels like driving here, he keeps them at his house.else they are at his farmhouse/warehouse on kanakapura road.He later moves them to Mumbai , his other base location. Apart from the 'busa, I've also seen the BMW cruiser (the one used by james bond) outside his house.I especially love his RS4.Seen a M5 at his house sometime apart from the CLS ,CLK & SL500. When he buys mercs, you'll see most of the merc models in his garage.now its the turn of the Audis.

yeah 3 A8s, 2 7s, 4-5 Es, an E36 M3, 2 TTs old and new, X3, X5... He has 42 cars now, 43 and 44 are on order...
He has tons of Audis owing to the fact that he used to own a dealership for Audi, but backed out some time back. All his cars are maintained by a private team who he employs, and it's a side business of his, his guys are trained to service any exotic, so life's good I guess...

Oh and a lot of the cars mentioned here as being seen outside his house do not belong to him. I believe he never had an M5...His businesses mean he works with high profile clientele, you'd always see some great cars visiting his place...

I have to say though, the SL500 is fun, but I'm in love with his RS4...I get to drive all the new cars he gets here in Mumbai...I mean considering he's my neighbour and all

cheers:

That looks like its outside the 12th Main CCD. You'll find it parked there almost everyday, unless the guy comes in his Laura.

Saw the GTR on Airport rd., white hummer on St. Marks and the nice green Civic there too!!

Errrr..... I hope you were kidding.

It's the phantom which is the "exotic". The car in front of it is an Indica,

If its a maroon colour one, then it was under the custody of Customs for a long time in Calicut on some import duty case! I regulary seen & even enquired whether will it be auctioned, so that one of my cousin was interested in the car. But I got the information that the owner will pay the balance duty & release it soon.

When did Dr.Mallya added the S600? Hope it is very recent, because when I talked to the sales manager of Merc dealership in Bangalore a few months back, he told Dr.Mallya has only W220 S500 (which was there for the service too. He also mentioned that he is getting a RR Phantom!
