Gautam Singhania, one of India’s most prolific car collectors, continues to make headlines with his acquisitions of swanky sports cars. The Managing Director of Raymond Group, known for his fondness for high-end Ferraris, recently made waves by adding a new Ferrari 296 GTB supercar worth Rs 6.37 crore to his collection. Now, he has further enriched his garage with the all-new Maserati MC20 coupe.
In a video uploaded by the YouTube channel CS 12 Vlogs, Gautam Singhania can be seen driving his brand-new Maserati MC20 through the streets of Mumbai. The striking red-coloured MC20 coupe commands attention as Singhania navigates the roads solo, escorted by guards in a white Toyota Fortuner. The video captures glimpses of Singhania maneuvering the MC20, deftly dodging speed breakers and unleashing the supercar’s power with full gusto.
The Maserati MC20 supercar made its global debut in 2020, arriving in both coupe and Cielo (convertible) versions in 2022. Deliveries for the first batch commenced in the first half of 2023, with eager buyers, including Singhania, finally getting their hands on the coveted MC20 through Maserati’s official dealership in Mumbai.
Powered by a twin-turbocharged petrol engine
As the flagship offering of the exotic Italian brand, the MC20 boasts a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged Nettuno petrol engine paired with an 8-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. This powerhouse delivers an impressive 630 PS of maximum power and 730 Nm of maximum torque.
The Maserati MC20, priced starting from Rs 3.7 crore (ex-showroom, India) for the coupe version, offers six captivating colour options, including Nero Essenza (Black), Rosso Vincente (Red), Grigio Mistero (Grey), Giallo Genio (Yellow), Bianco Audace (White), and Blu Infinito (Blue). Gautam Singhania’s preferred choice is the striking Rosso Vincente shade.
In the Indian market, the Maserati MC20 faces stiff competition from other high-end supercars such as the Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari Roma, Aston Martin Vantage, and Jaguar F-Type.
With his passion for exceptional automobiles, Gautam Singhania’s collection continues to grow, reflecting his unwavering love for high-performance and luxurious driving experiences.
Gautam Singhania is an automobile enthusiast
Gautam Singhania can be credited as one of the trailblazers who introduced the McLaren 720S to India. Apart from the 720S, he also possesses a McLaren 570S, both registered in Dubai, UAE. Besides these high-performance modern supercars, Singhania’s garage boasts a remarkable collection of vintage and rare exotics. Among these treasures is the Lincoln Zephyr Hotrod, although it rarely ventures beyond the confines of his garage. Recently, the Hotrod made a rare appearance at a car show, intriguing enthusiasts. While its authenticity as an original model remains uncertain, its appearance certainly resembles one.
Singhania’s fascination with American muscle cars is evident in the presence of a 1973 Pontiac Trans AM SD. What sets this model apart is its distinctive engine, characterized by a strengthened cylinder block and reinforced main bolt bearings, among other enhancements.
The Lotus Elise, a popular model in earlier versions of Need For Speed, has been a cherished possession of Gautam Singhania for quite some time now. Unlike some other cars in his collection, Singhania has not parted ways with this enjoyable and spirited ride.
Another gem in Singhania’s collection is the Honda S2000, an entry-level sports car known for its thrilling driving experience. While the S2000 is widely admired in international markets, it remains relatively rare on Indian roads. Singhania’s well-maintained S2000 stands as a testament to his appreciation for automotive excellence.
Gautam Singhania’s garage is a haven for automotive enthusiasts, housing an impressive array of both modern supercars and classic gems, each representing a unique facet of automotive engineering and design.
