The Lambo gallardo is never driven with the top up. He always has the top down. I don't know why. But I think more than care for interiors he likes to hear the engine behind him.

the good doctor loves his cars that-a-way! as pics posted in this forum earlier...he had the SL55 AMG (rebadged) and the yellow porsche with the soft top. as with all his cars...he doesn't really care where he parks them either. he believes they are to be driven like any ordinary car. his son though...is more circumspect. for more reasons than one. would more rather drive his civic!

spotted a black SLK 350 outside politician turned real estate tycoons office (next to 1912). had fancy number...007! must have added it recently to his collection. or son would have bought it. was driving his RR sport.
BTW 1912 is transforming into hard rock cafe in a few months time. owner of that drives a VW Touareg.

maybe its because those cars are second hand,depreciated and now he knows parking thos cars anywhere cannot burn a hole in his pocket as much as the depreciation does

Sweet is the word. It has come a long way changing its name every now and then. Should be a good place to hang out.

I think its cool how he drives them like another car. He owns the car and not the otherway round as is the case with most people with expensive cars. And its convertible, so its meant to be driven with its roof down. Aftenoon or not its the owners choice. I dont think when you own a car like that you will think twice about what the next person has to say or think.

well...if he's showing off, who can blame him? any of us got that car gifted...wouldn't most of us do the same? and why not? no place like b'lore weather to do it. the other thing is...he's a car lover, though he's made his money late in life and he doesn't bother about hiding it like our politicians kids. also...self promotion helps in his line of work!

Thats true..no better way to do it than it carry it off well. Have money,will drive a good car..


Doubt if the weather in B'lore is the best for a convertible. Way too much pollution,and if not anything else,people spitting from buses..
