Having being in the film industry for quite some time now and establishing a sound reputation for himself, he too joins the list of Bollywood stars owning super exotic cars and a glimpse of his collection is mentioned below.

The R8 truly shows of its undisputed legacy and prestige on all parameters, thereby making it an obvious choice for the brand lovers out there.
The design language, despite being there for quite some time now hasn’t aged quickly and still continues to allure you with the majestic low slung appearance, gorgeous detailing on the alloy wheels, skillful delineation of curvy lines emerging from the front and integrating with the boot behind along with the grandiose silhouette being the showstopper.

Be it any angle, one can really admire the imagination and expertise of Audi designers back in Ingolstadt to come up with a masterpiece on wheels with its exemplary road hugging dynamics that bewitches everyone out on the streets.

Luxury and sophistication get a new recognition with this bellwether flagship model from Audi. The subtle and stately exhibition of its massive length lends it a formidable understated character. When A8 was initially launched in India back in 2007, it didn’t set the sales chart on fire compared to its rivals, reason being that Audi was still new and people were getting themselves accustomed with the brand philosophy and terminology. Post 2011, the German car maker introduced the New A8L and this being leaps and bounds ahead of its rivals.
All the brainwork, technical know-how and experimentations going into bringing out an exclusive piece of artwork.

Put the pedal to metal and 100 kmph comes up in a mere 5 seconds and if you keep it pressed for some more time, you will need to find a road where it reaches its top speed of 250 kmph. If you want to be a little more enthusiastic and have fun, then one can change the suspension settings to sport which translates an elite ride to a racer bull instinct.

People were given the opportunity to test its off-road capabilities in the form of the G class, a commercial version of the G-Wagen. It became an instant hit with the crowd owing to its legendary design language and practical interior layout along with decent performance. But even in present times amidst flamboyant shaped SUVs, one cannot forget the feelings for the G Class that till date is a preferred choice for brand patrons. Although in 2006, the company was planning to replace it with the more elegant GL Class, that did not happen.
Instead the G Class entered the AMG lineage to keep history and tradition intact of some of the greatest time tested design languages being offered with plethora of add-ons to attract customers. The humongous 5.5-litre V8 turbocharger with 544 bhp and 760nm of torque is more than sufficient to get you ahead in the race.
It crosses the 100 kmph mark in 5.3 seconds with a top wack of 210 kmph. This vehicle truly makes one stand out of the crowd courtesy the macho looks and presence and therefore is one of the prized- possessions of Ranbir Kapoor in his garage.

A person can admire and appreciate the Englishmen for their hard work and dedication which is truly exemplified from the majestic exterior looks with precise fine edges all around. Despite being for so long in the market, it is still considered new and is able to give the modern age looking SUVs a run for their money.
