hey guys well lets see amitabhs cars hmmm... he has all the usuals like the mercs, yes the sl500 and even a s class. he had a lx 470 which is definitely his favorite. i mean guys come in its the only decent one that can wade in mumbai traffic without much attention. he HAS a bently. it was given by amar singh.and he has his eyes planted on the maybach. i dont think hes gonna invest in it atleast for now.

wll now for the catch his all time favorite car is that suv made by lamborghini.that has a countach engine. thats one thing amitabh would die for. so any of u guys out there with that car u have a buyer none other than big b himself. heard that the king of morocco has one ..now only if he would sell that... maybe we would see a lambo on the streets of mumbai....!

Hey Vishnu...,

Well i dont know if you know but there is a Lamborghini on mumbai streets that is in my opinion better than the countach engined LM02, its the Diablo itself!!
Here it is next to a zen for proof ;-]


Sadly though i think the car has left the country as it was apparently brought in on the EPCG scheme.

ps - please delete your second msg that only says "whattttttttt"

I doubt it, he is embarrassed to be so rich and prefers things for function, not to make a statement. i.e. - he will cross the road and walk to the Taj across the road from his office rather than take the car

That cud be Ambani's most probably. I guess he's got his car delivered. BTW i heard [or read somewhere] that if the car has to be serviced at the plant, its put into a Merc truck and sent there.
Now I wudnt mind being the driver of that truck [most probably the Actros].
