The cars we drive say a lot about us.
Extremely well said for the politicians.
Because for the people in power and authority, the vehicles they possess must speak of the same.
We have shortlisted some prominent and eminent figures of influence and the exotic vehicles in their garage:-
Jagan Mohan Reddy
A famous Indian politician and YSR Congress Party’s president, Jagan Mohan Reddy is the Leader of Opposition in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly since June 2014.
Following in his father’s footsteps Y.S Rajashekhara Reddy he also developed a strong liking for politics. In 2009 he became a Member of Parliament from the Kadapa constituency representing the Congress Party.
He is an ardent lover of automobiles and that can be inferred from the masterpiece he owns, known as the Jaguar XJL.
The ‘leaping cat’ from the United Kingdom is an ideal embodiment of dynamism, technology and sophistication. The timeless design language with the royal insignia on the bonnet(the protruding one) inspires you to adore the humongous length of the flagship vehicle. A faultless interior cabin with perfect ergonomic arrangement oozes gratification and sensuality within.
And which animated being comes to your mind on hearing the grand three alphabets......?
Let us reserve it to this for now
The 3litre diesel motor with 275PS on tap communicates its intentions indeed well and completely transforms this elegant cat’s mannerisms to a beast incarnate.

He has recently joined the Congress Party and is the proud owner of a Toyota Land Cruiser.
The Toyota badge worldwide has a strong reputation of being the most reliable and meeting your expectations along with portraying the importance of customer satisfaction.
This gigantic SUV since ages has been an all-time hit with the bureaucrats and influential people and credit also goes to its sheer off-roading dynamics and go anywhere capability apart from the time tested and stonky diesel engine that boasts of the best performance figures.
An individual with a modern outlook and philosophy is how we can describe Prateek Yadav.
Being the youngest son of the authoritative and influential leader of the Samajwadi Party, Mulayam Singh Yadav, he has set out his own path and destiny to be in the limelight and be the most talked person amongst the public.
A passionate Gym freak, Prateek realized from the very beginning that he did not possess the inherent flair for politics, but a swanky possession known as the Lamborghini Huracan Spyder in his garage has indeed kept his popularity on par with his elder brother Akhilesh Yadav.
A majestic artwork of an Italian Maestro which is reflected in the low slung design with meticulous shades of over doings in its dreamboat visuals. .
The interiors enchant a person with their sporty intentions and awaken the racer pedigree instinct within him.

This monster goes extremely well with Prateek’s personality as it complements his younger looks while possessing a distinct perception and attitude towards things.
A well- known Tamil film actor and producer, who literally has taken the Southern Bollywood industry by storm. Known for repetitive blockbuster hits and meticulous acting skills, the son of politician MK Stalin and grandson of M Karunanidhi, has now made a foray into politics adding a feather to his cap.
A strong, dominant and influential position to be portrayed does require a commensurate personification and in Udhayanidhi’s case, the catalytic exemplar being a Hummer H3.
The gigantic and colossal SUV is a true beast incarnate and makes you feel like the king of the road.
Its legendary design language has won tremendous appreciation and accolades world over while keeping the legendary tradition and styling cues intact.

It won't merit a "wanting more" expression on your face with regards to its paramount demeanor playing the trick....
This humongous beast becomes the ideal choice for Udhayanidhi to showcase his talent and caliber in the world of politics and is an easy commuter for him in the hinterland.
A famous elected MLA of Bharatiya Janata Party from Ghatkopar West Vidhan Sabha constituency, Ram Kadam has always been a part and parcel of controversies during the recent past.
During his tenure with the MNS party, his very opposing and unruly stance towards Abu Asim Azmi of Samajwadi Party while taking the oath in the Parliament in Hindi came as a shock to the higher authorities and judiciary and that was followed by strict disciplinary action and suspension.
Politicians always hog the limelight in some manner or the other and idealize themselves as God’s gift to mankind and savior for the masses in general to score brownie points.
But this can backfire too as it happened with Ram Kadam during the Demonetisation phase.
When people were standing in long queues outside banks struggling to cope up with the cash crunch, his tweet on gifting his underage son a swanky Mercedes E 350 Cabriolet further angered them who were speculative about his source of funds.

Taking this, a level further adding to his popularity is a Lamborghini Huracan gifted by him to his dear wife Suman Mehta.
The exclusive and enchanting orange paint shade known as the Arancio Borealis was specially made to order to resemble and symbolize the BJP party’s color.
As an everyday transport vehicle, his wife was not that comfortable driving this beast around in town and keeping up with its stupendous acceleration and agility and she happened to crash the car in an auto, which made tremendous news.
