Prospective bidders required to pay a deposit amount to qualify
The contract for the e-auction has been given to Metal Scrap Trade Corporation Limited (MSTC), a state-owned e-commerce company.
Out of the 13 cars up for auction, some are getting re-auctioned including a Rolls Royce Ghost and Porsche Panamera.
These two cars were in June bid for Rs. 1.70 crore and Rs. 60 lakh respectively, but the sale couldn't materialize due to some issues.
The highlight of the collection remains Rs. 2-crore Bentley Arnage
The collection also includes a luxury sports sedan Bentley Arnage, that comes at a starting price of around Rs. 2 crore, the highest of all cars owned by Nirav to be auctioned. Notably, these starting prices are determined based on the age and usage.
Some of the cars carry special VIP numbers as well
The bidders can inspect these vehicles on Monday and Tuesday at three locations, Samudra Mahal in Worli, Grosvenor House at Peddar Road and the basement parking of Kohinoor City in Kurla (West).
