The thing is while the German trio also do white elephants, nobody does it as well as a RR!

The previous RR was never sold. It is still used in their family.

Does anybody know if these cars from the Leena Maria Paul scam that were stored in some Chennai yard(Canara bank owned?) after impound ever went under the auction hammer?
Is the red Evo X from that lot back on the road or is it rusting away in some yard?

All the cars - Vantage, Phantom, GTR, Evo X and Hummer H2 - are lying in some yard down south either in Tamil Nadu or Kerala. They were supposed to be auctioned, but the auction never really took place.

I am told the Vantage is beyond repairs now.

The 6th season of Koffee with Karan, a Star World Original was driven by Audi

Mumbai, March 04, 2019: Audi India, the German luxury car maker, that recently associated with the Star World Original show “Koffee with Karan” for its 6th season, delivered the Answer of the Season award- the Audi A5 Sportback to Bollywood celebrity Ajay Devgn. The Answer of the Season has been chosen from the quirkiest and most fun answers given by the guests in the sixth season of Koffee with Karan that airs Sundays at 9 pm on Star World.

“Audi has always been associated with the top most events and properties in the world of entertainment and sports, globally as well as locally. This is why we are encouraged to have received a fantastic response from our association in India with ‘Koffee with Karan’. Our philosophy of ‘Audi is more’ not only reflects in our products but our marketing strategy is a clear demonstration of the same as well. The announcement of the Answer of the Season winner getting a brand new Audi A5 Sportback added a lot of intrigue to the show and created popular debates amongst fans every week on which answer should win an Audi. Even the enthusiasm on the show by the celebrities has taken the importance of the answer of the season to the next level. We at Audi India are really excited to hand over the Audi A5 Sportback to Mr. Ajay Devgn and welcome him to the Audi family,” said Mr. Rahil Ansari, Head, Audi India.

The car was on sale since quite a lot of time now I think. It has found it's new home in the Umrah Developers garage at Mysore where it shares the Garage with a Ghost!

The article says the car costs anywhere between 49-65 lacs 🤣🤣 . If that was the case it would've flooded Range Rovers in India.

First they say it costs between 49 and 65L, then they display the full registration number of a car owned by a celebrity. Journalism in this country is hitting an all time high, I must say. :banghead:

I think they just converted the price of US model of Range Rover into rupees and published it

Common mistake by our media

AFAIK, The thing is that the number plate should have the exact same number as the RC so if the RC doesn't have a prefix of 0, then ideally, the plate shouldn't have it too. This practice (without prefix 0) was there before the advent of HSRPs I think and therefore, since these cars are older, they might have had only single digits on the RC.

There was a Fortuner owner on the forum who had the same question when he bought the VIP number and he had explained this. Here's the link to his post-
