Such a sad sight watching a Bently CFS being repaired at a local workshop in Goregaon, Mumbai.

The one who handcrafted this beauty surely never have thought it would see such days.

Hello,

The car is indeed in a sorry state. A good friend of mine is ready for restoration. Please share details of the exact location and garage where the car is kept.

Thanking in advance,
EK

I think these cars are now just parked out on the road - since the workshop there closed down. There were a lot of other cars parked there earlier - Hummer H2, CL55 AMG and even a Lorinser W140.

It will be a long time till this happens. The CBI need to complete the investigation, couple that with the stonewalling that will happen as a lot of politicians are involved, then the banks have to press their case, court needs issue release documents to the bank and to the police.

A perfect long storm!

True Ajmat - and by the time these cars are put on auction - they would have been vandalised and probably beyond rescue. A perfect example - the RR Phantom, Aston Martin AMV8 etc owned by actress Leena Maria which were seized and are now in a very sorry state.

The only cars which got sold quickly were Nirav Modi's cars.

Yet another S-Class on the Western Express Highway. Near Sai Dham, Kandivali under the Metro construction. The W220 S-Class doesn't even have takers at Tata Nano money (2.5 - 3 lakh rupees). Original owners would've already moved onto their newer luxury barges. Would the 2nd / 3rd / 4th owner even bother spending more than the book value on repairs? Fat chance. RIP.

At best, this will end up as a parts car. At worse, it'll go in scrap.
