Lovely picture S350 do you have a higher resolution version. Hey Rehaan as far as I know the asking price for the 911 was 50 lakhs

I have also heard Yash Birla has a 911 for his wife Avantika. I've heard shes driven around in it by a driver . Now if only I was that driver...

Hey Dippy,

Wasn't it a closed bid auction, hence no asking price?? or am i remembering wrong?

Ya the 911 was priced at 50 Lakhs. Heres the link to the Midday Article on the auctions :

Ambanisí cars up for sale.(Porsche 911, *a 1994 Mercedes SL 320 convertible, a 1994 BMW 735 I and a 1995 Lexus LS 400)

That wasnt the price, that was the estimated price by an indian automag guy (an open bid sent to midday -for purposes of letting the public know the value of the cars via midday).
The car was sold in an auction to the highest bidder, and i dont think it is clear as to how much it eventually sold for. (Maybe less or maybe much more than 50L)

I JUST REMEMBERED! WONDER WHY I DIDN'T REMEMBER BEFORE.

I seen this car, the white 911, a long time back during a shooting in my area. It's a Turbo. About I guess 5-6 years back. There was this road concreting in my area and the car was parked at a newly unused concreted small area of road with its wheels turned, perfect for a photo. And then people were gathering around it.

Which one? the blue one or white one?

The blue one (ambanis) had 7k-km at the time of sale when the car was 7yrs old, according to the midday article.
