Yes this is a regular practice. This is done to save on taxes and avail of depreciation benefits. In your case it sounds like the owner of the car also runs the company with which the car was registered initially. Otherwise also many corporates allow the same advantages to their executives. I think its popularly known as "company lease".

As far as the market perception is concerned it is generally taken as a second owner's car when you buy it. So you become the third owner. Because the car market does not get into the technical nitty-gritties of these practices. For the market the number of entries in the RC book = the number of owners. At least that is how I have seen it going. However there is no written rule on this either, Lol. If you have a car which you took on company lease and then later got transferred in your name (once the EMIs have been paid) you may manage to sell it as a first hand car to someone if he sees things in the same light and agrees to take it as such.

Technically the present owner is the second owner, but buying back of vehicles given to them by the company, from the company they are with, is a common practice for middle and high level executives.
If the car is in good shape, i doubt it should matter all that much.
