This, by no means, is the entirety of the collection. Trust me when I say this, I'm excited for you guys to witness what more is to come from this garage this year, both old and new

I've included just the highlights from the garage and has omitted some of his regular use cars like the R56 Cooper S, new Land Cruiser, Polo GTi, W212 E etc.

Thanks to BHPian avishar for the M3 shots from MMSC, rest of the photographs were either clicked by me or sourced directly.

Though I don't understand much of Malayalam, I make sure to watch most of Dulquer movies, just class apart. And just like his movies, his car collection is class apart as well. A rare actor who know's how to pick his ride! Ahh, not to forget, Mammukka's got some great taste too!

Amazing collection and thanks a lot for sharing Scorcher and Avishar. More than the newer cars, I love their older collection - the Volvo Estates the E46 M3, the Mini and the Landcruisers.

Glad to see this thread. Thank you for sharing. As someone had mentioned in the 'Film Stars thread' just having the money enables you to buy a lot of cars, but when you add pure class, great taste and passion to it, the 369 garage is what you get.

I have read that both of them always prefer to drive themselves rather than be chauffeur driven- again a rarity with celebrities.

My 2 cents, some of the more humbler rides. Courtesy of the various BHP'ians who had posted the pics earlier:

The SUVs

Q7 - rumored sold



Pajero - rumored sold





LC





Fortuner



Pajero Sport

Just the tip of the iceberg. More "old", "not so old" and "very new" cars coming soon (can't disclose more ). Let me contribute to this thread some pictures that weren't shared on the forum.

A rare combination of money, taste and the willingness to put effort where the heart is. Amazing!

The first two parameters are in itself a rare combo in our country, but when you add the third, it moves that pedestal further away. After all, it would have been so easy to just buy new cars and change it every now and then. So, this is awesome! Finding these awesome machines in our market, bringing it home and then spending time and energy to make it complete. Kudos!!

Hopefully he will keep going for the sake of us over here.

My absolute favorite is that E46 M3. Great shade and lovely wheels - almost looks like the M3 CSL which is one of the greatest sedans ever made.

But I have not been so lucky to spot any of these machines on road even though I am in the same city - just seen only their Garnet Red Innova Crysta.

Since the M3 is turning out to be quite the favorite, here is a sneak peek of his never before seen E36 M3 that's currently in build, just one of a 'few' BMWs in the works still .

Thanks for sharing man! Over & above the modern cars, the inclusion of cult classics like the Supra, E46 M3, Landcruiser 80 Series & Mercedes W123 show these guys have T-A-S-T-E. It's one thing to have money, but entirely another to have class. Clearly a petrolhead duo . This is perhaps the best garage in the film industry, and that includes Bollywood!

What's the deal with the Volvo Estate? Sentimental reasons?

And are these cars current? Where do they park them? How do they keep so many cars running?

What an awesome collection! Like father, like son.
I usually never follow any actor on Facebook. DQ is the only one for whom i have made an exception.

Looking forward to seeing more added to the collection. Amazing taste, surely!

That was a recent acquisition. He's just into anything with a stick and RWD.

All cars in the original post are the staples.

Then there are a few auxiliary cars I left out like the LC, A7, R56 Cooper S, GTi, Crysta etc that still remain. But the XJ, Q7, white LC200 (replaced with a new black one), both Pajeros are all long gone.

Most the cars are spread across different residences located in Kochi and Chennai. Rest at the shops in various stages of restoration or modifications.

What an awesome collection of cars!!! I really wish that Toyota Supra was a manual. This is one of those very few actors who knows a thing or two about their rides. Amazing DQ!!
