Let us have a look at just a few of the cars he owns:
Range Rover Free Lander
The Free Lander is top range SUV from the British car maker Range Rover. However, due to its high price tag here in India, the Free Lander is mostly owned by the rich and famous. The Range Rover Free Lander is powered by a 2.2 l diesel engine that churns out 148 hp and 420 Nm of torque. It sure is a thing of beauty.
Audi’s flagship SUV is a very popular choice among the top brass of society. The car’s massive profile and premium badge commands attention wherever it goes. Powering this giant is a 4.2 l TDI engine that produces 335 hp and a huge 800 Nm of torque.
