maybe people have thought that they saw the veyron, but in all reality it was probably a swift dzire or something like that ...

I highly doubt anyone in India would be willing to put down cash for one of those, even if just for bragging rights, I mean you're talking about spending 2 million+ Euros on a car, about 14 crores!!!

if someone purchased a veyron it would have come in the news as the expensive car on indian roads. when ambani/manlikchand purschased a maybach it came in news, so did when poonawalla purschased the first rolls phantom.

Not necessarily, it depends entirely on the owner. A lot of cars come in & are never reported in the popular media if the owner does not wish it to be public knowledge.

Not really, some owners can be incredibly cagey about their cars. For example a certain large collection in Bangalore has more or less stayed away from our sights (or at least camera lenses!) despite a lot of us knowing about it. It's purely because of the fact the owner doesn't like publicity about his collection.

I dont think any of his cars (except the Murcielago Barchetta) has been pictured on the forum. He's supposed to own the following :
4 360 Modena's (all different colors)
1 355
1 575M
1 Murcielago Barchetta
1 Nissan GTR
1 (or maybe 2) RR Sport

AAhhh yes. Have heard about his collection only through BHP, which is surprising, I mean does he just not leave his home in any of these exotics? Someone must've spotted them somewhere...But then again are all these cars on the list confirmed?

The 575M is the same one that was bought under the EPCG sheme and was running yellow "All India Permit" KL plates. It has been discussed here :

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...regd-taxi.html (Pics, Details and Info about the Ferrari 575M in Kerala regd as a Taxi.)

I guess he also owns a Dino (featured in ACI) and an M5.
