He used to own a DC custom painted Mini Cooper. It used to spot this special no *DC 90. He even got it autographed by Mr. DC when they met in a hotel lobby.

Oh, got it. The matte grey car with the VIP plate. He's never owned that, maybe belonged to friends or family.

His first and only Mini is this F56.

Any other new addition in pipeline?

The car in the middle should be the one Bandhav mentioned. It doesn't belong to AT.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Kerala

I am little appalled by the number of PY registration cars. People were able to afford cars worth of multiple crores, but don't wanna spend money on registering it in home state . On the other hand, it generates considerable income to my home state .

They are just exploiting a legal loophole, nothing illegal actually. These people do actually own properties or have a registered company in Pondicherry.

But there are plenty of fraud cases where the owners use a faux address to register their cars, those are illegal.

Everybody, rich or poor wants to save money. It is the stupid states that dont know the meaning of competition. As a single country anyone can register anywhere. In such a scenario states have to offer the best deals to people like in the case of AP where the CM waived off road tax completely for Isuzu vehicles as a gesture of thanks to the company for investing thousands of crores in their state. Thats the spirit of business rather than trying to hound people.

To be honest, it isn't the owners fault here. Even for someone buying a car worth multi-crores, the difference between 2 lakhs and 40 lakhs is huge so they have to register their cars in other states.

Like a couple more people have said here, we need a universal road tax law to ensure peace of mind and make the pricing seem logical.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Kerala

Saw this report on the first Cullinan to be owned by a Keralite, but it is not clear if the vehicle is going to be seen in Kerala or else where.

This vehicle is in Dubai, it is LHD car. Though it may end up landing here, temporarily, in true Kerala fashion.

Re: Supercars & Imports : Kerala

Three more BMW M2 Competitions have made it to the state. One each in Sunset Orange, Long Beach Blue and Hockenheim Silver, completing the full colour palette on offer!

Re: Supercars & Imports : Kerala

Not an exotic but a rare import. A Mercedes Station Wagon!

Err, I'm still wondering if it's a C class or E class. From the proportions, it looks like a W203 C class to me. Looking at the Door handles, Rear and 3rd-row windows, I guess, it's safe to state that this is a C class. But then the tail lamps got me confused as they're from the W210 E class Station Wagon. Can anyone confirm, please?
