The Rolls-Royce Ghost with advanced features, technology and comforts will be on auction (live) estimated at 75-95 lakhs, besides the 2010 Porsche Panamera for between 10-15 lakhs (online). Both cars are being put under hammer for re-auctions.

Last year, 12 cars belonging to Nirav Modi and his fugitive uncle Mehul Choksi were auctioned off at prices ranging from 2.7 lakh to 1.33 crore.

The cars, most of them high-end models, were seized by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) after it charged Nirav Modi with money-laundering in the Punjab National Bank (PNB) fraud case. Some cars have special VIP numbers, and their starting price was decided based on their age and extent of use. The auction fetched the government exchequer 3.28 crore in all.

Sold for 1.33 crore, the Rolls Royce Ghost had been driven 24,439 km and was registered in 2010. The 2010 Porsche Panamera, driven 30,326km, was sold for 54 lakh.

The two cars were re-auctioned a few months later. This time the Rolls Royce Ghost and Porsche Panamera were sold for 1.70 crore and 60 lakh, respectively. Later on, in November 2019, a Bentley Arnage was also put under the hammer at a base price of 2 crore - the highest of all the cars owned by Modi that are being auctioned.

Besides these, a Mercedes Benz GL 350 was also sold almost 16 lakh over the starting price. The car’s starting price was 37.80 lakh but it sold for 53.76 lakh. The other cars sold include a Mercedes Benz CLS 350, two Honda Brios, a Toyota Innova 2.5, a Honda CR-V and a BMW X1, among others.
