    Me and my cars: Rajiv Kehr

    What are you driving and why?

    I drive a 1934 Packard Standard 8, 1101/710 7 passenger, which I’ve taken to Villa d’Este in Italy and a Mercedes-Benz 220SE Cabriolet that I’ve driven to the Mercedes-Benz Classic Car Rally (MBCCR). A Mercedes EQS 580 is my daily drive. The smoothness of the ride beats any other car and it helps me go green.

     What’s next on your wish list?

    The successor to the Ferrari 812 Superfast.

    The most fun you’ve had in a car?

    Driving around England in a vintage 1936 Rolls-Royce with my son.

    Favourite / Dream money-no-object car?

    The Ferrari 250 GTO. Looks, sound, power, rarity and investment grade.

    Who is your all-time greatest motorsport hero?

    The Brazilian Formula 1 driver Ayrton Senna, who had an illustrious career.

    Rajiv drives his 220SE Cabrio to the MBCCR.

    Favourite road?

    The passes in the Swiss Alps or the State Route One in California, USA.

    What’s on your automotive bucket list?

    To buy an Alfa Romeo 6C and take part in the Mille Miglia in Italy.

    What would you do with your last litre of fuel?

    Imagine different drives in cars while still preserving the last litre. 

    Your ideal 5-car garage would be?

    Rolls Royce Phantom II Continental

    1934 Packard Le Baron Roadster

    1934 Alfa Romeo 8C Spider Zagato

    Jaguar E-type Series 1 

    Ferrari Enzo

    Would you buy a CNG bike?

    Yes, the running costs are too good to ignore.



    No, CNG comes with too many compromises.
