Sukesh Chandrasekar, who has been in jail for a significant period, recently made headlines when Nora Fatehi recorded her statement in the case. The actress was in court due to a defamation case filed against her by fellow actor Jacqueline Fernandez. While we were aware of Sukesh and his wife Leena Paul’s penchant for expensive and exotic cars, these vehicles had remained hidden from public view until now. Here are the first pictures of the cars seized by the Directorate of Enforcement (ED), which is investigating the case. The good part is all these are up for auction and will be starting on 11th August. You can bid for these cars through official ED website.
These vehicles are currently in ED’s custody in Kochi. The pictures have surfaced through a T-BHP post that details all the vehicles seized by ED.
The ED seized properties and possessions worth crores of rupees from the conman. This marks the first instance where all his seized cars are seen parked together in one place. Among these pictures, we can spot vehicles like the Lamborghini Aventador, multiple Land Rover Range Rovers, Isuzu V-Cross, and many others. However, there are a few exotic ones that stand out from the rest and deserve special mention.
This is one of its kind car in India. While there are a few Maybachs in the country, this one is tuned and modified by the famous designer Brabus. This is one of its kind car in India and depending on the level of customisation can easily cost multiple crores.
2 X Ferrari 458 Italia
The 458 Italia is one of the most famous Ferraris in the world. Sukesh also owned one. The 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5-litre V8 engine that produces a maximum power of 562 bhp. It can accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds. It has a top speed of 340 km/h.
Now these cars often come to India for a short term with Carnet permissions but Sukesh owned one right in India, which shows how much money he simply splurged into these vehicles. His Escalade finished in golden shade is now gathering dust.
Rolls Royce Ghost
Sukesh owned an all-black Rolls-Royce that we can see in the picture below. While the Ghost is the most affordable car you can buy with the Rolls Royce badge, it defiantly remains out of the reach of most of people due to its multi-crore price tag.
Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG
One of the most powerful saloons you will ever see in the markets, the S63 AMG is a beast on the roads. The S63 AMG is powered by a brand new motor – a 4.0 litre, twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine.
Mansory Lamborghini Urus
Now Urus is a relatively new car and has become quite popular in the market. While there are many who have got custom jobs their Lambo SUV, Sukesh went on full aftermarket customisation from Mansory, which itself could charge lakhs depending on the customisation.
3 X Bentley
We could spot at least three Bentley sedans in the pictures of seized cars. There is a Mulsanne and two Flying Spurs from different years.
The Mulsanne is the royalty Bentley while the others are no less when it comes to luxury, they cost a bit less than the top car.
Aston Martin Vantage
This seems to be an old Vantage from the early 2010s. Still, the Aston Martin Vantage has a lot of fan following and it comes roaring with a powerful engine.
4 X Range Rover
Land Rover Range Rovers are the most common cars in the garages of the rich and famous. Sukesh owned three of them including the Long Wheelbase version. The LWB Range Rover is a rare car in India and recently Guatm Adani bought one for himself.
The G-Wagen has been around for decades in the markets and it sure is an enthusiast’s dream. Sukesh owned one in white colour, which sadly is in ED’s custody now.
