I think this is Farhan Akhtar's ride. Apparently the pic was taken when he arrived for a promotion event for his movie at Mehboob Studios

It also said that he was the first one in India to get it. (not sure how true is that, because there were claims that someone in Hyderabad also getting one)

Aamir rolls out hot wheels from Satara
Atul Deshpande | TNN

Satara: Bollywood actor Aamir Khan got his brand new Rolls-Royce registered at Maharashtra’s Satara regional transport office (RTO) on Saturday. He also managed to get a special number, MH 11 AX 1, for it. People stopped by to see the shining, metallic silver car when it was brought to RTO for registration. Deputy regional transport officer V R Gujarathi confirmed that the car belonged Khan and that he had requested for the registration number ‘1’.

“The RTO charged over Rs 47 lakh tax and another Rs 3 lakh for the special number. Since the number was not available in four-wheeler series, it was allotted from the two-wheeler series. The car has been registered in the name of Advital Post Studios Ltd at 7D, Silver Valley Society, Mahabaleshwar,” Gujarathi said. Khan had bought the property five years ago.

RTO sources said Mumbai-based Navneet Motors imported the car from the UK at Rs 1.22 crore. The customs duty was calculated at Rs 1.41 crore. The special number cost Khan Rs 3 lakh. Total cost of the car worked out to Rs 3.11 crore.

Didnt quite understand the statement " Since the number was not available in four-wheeler series, it was allotted from the two-wheeler series.". Is it really possible to do that?

If thats true im gonna keep a look-out for that one, as he lives near about my place. Also, its quite likely IMO, that the news on this gossip site has got the Car name correct and the model wrong (even though the models arent phonetically similar)..hopefully we hear some concrete news about this, Im getting my camera ready..Cheers

+1 ^. There are hundreds of cars in Delhi running with the S series meant for 2 wheelers , i'm sure it's not legal but is always ignored by the cops until someone meets with an accident.

Ravelsnip, i sincerly hope youre right and the article in question, i must add, the first car (displayed at the Mumbai Showroom) was to go to Hyderabad itself, its not there anymore on display. I reckon its reached the new owner at certainly not with Ronnie..Nevertheless, lets wait and watch, i hope to spot her soon>>
