I work in the same building as the volvo office at C V Raman Nagar, have seen the xc 70..the wheel base is pretty long but the height of XC 70 is as much as that of a Ford Fusion or a lil more.

Saw an Orange Gallardo Spyder next to Koshys on St.Marks road yesterday.

While I was staring at that car, the owner came out (an elderly half bald man) and started the car and revved it and then took his own sweet time to reverse out of that parking space and lowered the top and then opened the passenger side door to let his friend sit inside.

Oh man ! what a spectacle. All traffic on the road stopped and everyone were staring at this show....

It was a DL registered by the way

Who is he ?
Well I don't know much about him but all I know is that he is Ranjit Sundaram one of the owners of TVS Sundaram motors.I see him quiet often at the bangalore club with either his f430 or his sl55 amg.He is one lucky guy.

Only thing correct in the above is the name Ranjit and the Ferrari. SL55 is history or not been seen for a long time

the silver sl55 isn't owned by ranjit (even if you saw him driving it). the pics have been posted earlier.
in 10 years, i have never seen his brother ride with him (owns a tn reg 5series, cayenne s & new accord).

the sl55 is owned by another member of the club (restaurateur, mustachioed gentleman who works out) and is a very close friend of ranjit. you might have seen them together.

caveat: things do change really quickly with ranjit and i haven't seen him in 10 days...so you have a small chance of being right.

man! there is just so much specualtion and therefore misinformation on these exotic owners.there is valid and correct information on them in earlier posts.
i request newbies to first do a search of the forum before they post questions. every time there is a question about the owner...people with no clue, just hearsay, jump in with their half-baked information.
knowing most of these owners, i can certify that all we're be getting most of the time, is the wrong information.
in the interest of this forum, i also request all to refrain from making comments which are just sheer speculation and hearsay.it is best to post information that is garnered firsthand.

arrey bhai,

This thread is 88 pages long. How do you expect me to go through the whole thing to find out who Ranjit is ?

If you know, why dont you just tell me ?

Instead of explaining all this and taking up 11 lines, you could have just told who Ranjit is in 1 line. If he was a celebrity no1 would ask who he is, i dont think there's any1 who comes and asks, who Ambani or Tata is..

just spotted a MP registered lexus van named APLHARD.This must be a US spec version of a Toyota hiace.This was not as long as the previa though.seemed luxurious inside.

as long as this is the topic i speak, has anybody seen the Toyota Previa near Cauvery theater junction? its a blue van.super comfortable i guess it is . there are many of those vans.anybody taken a ride in any of them?

If I remember right,the owners of KidsKemp had 2 Toyota Previas that they'd use all the time. Not sure if these are still in B'lore.
