Bentley Mulsanne Speed
Lalit Modi uses a super luxurious Mulsanne Speed in London. It also gets a special registration number. The Mulsanne Speed is quite rare, especially after Bentley discontinued it. The luxury saloon comes powered by a 6.75-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine.
The engine generates a maximum power of 530 Bhp and earth-moving torque of 1,200 Nm. Even though it is a luxurious offering, it can do 0-100 km/h in just 4.8 seconds. The Mulsanne Speed comes with carbon fibre trims that save a lot of weight and also add a sporty appearance to the car.
This one does not get a special registration plate because the belongs to his son. The Mclaren 720S is a rare car and only 400 units of the supercar will be made. The car is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo petrol engine. It generates a maximum power of 710 Bhp and a peak torque of 770 Nm.

It can reach a top speed of 341 km/h.
The Mclaren 720S is available in three different variants – standard, luxury and performance. The top-end variant gets extensive carbon fibre parts. The variant gets parts like air intakes in the hood, wing mirrors and rear air intakes made up of carbon fibre. It gets luxurious interiors wrapped in Alcantara and Nappa leather. Zircon silver and brushed iridium brightwork for contrasting colours are also present.
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta
This F12 Berlinetta was gifted to Lalit Modi by the son on his 50th birthday. Modi is known for cricket and that’s why this also gets the registration that says “CRI3KET”. The Berlinetta catches a lot of eyes due to its off-beat shape and the engine is placed in the front. It gets powered by a 6.3-litre V12 naturally aspirated petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 730 Bhp of maximum power and peak torque of 690 Nm. It comes with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and is priced around Rs 4.71 crore, ex-showroom.
Back in India, Modi used a BMW 7-Series. It was the top-end 760 Li variant that came powered by a 6.0-litre V12 petrol engine. It generates a maximum power of 540 Bhp and a peak torque of 760 Nm. The 7-Series was a rage back when Modi bought it. It used to cost close to Rs 2 crore.
