Me and my cars: Purazar Fouzdar


What are you driving/riding and why?

I drive a beautiful 1984 Mercedes-Benz SEC 500 that I call ‘Nightfury”. It’s elegant, drives effortlessly and has airmatic suspension so I use it daily. I’ve also got a 1936 Mercedes 170V that was showcased at MBCCR 2022. I also ride a 1975 BMW R75/6. It’s got a boxer twin engine that’s been upgraded with forged pistons and connecting rods and is a hoot to ride.

Purazar has restored this classic BMW R75/6.

What’s next on your wish list?

A 1968 Porsche 911. 

The most fun you’ve had in a car/bike?

Recently, I drove my SEC 500 to Pune and it was a wonderful experience. I was just amazed with the ride quality and high speed stability. We made it to Pune in under 3 hours. 

Favourite/Dream money-no-object car?

A 1956 Ferrari 250 GT.

Who is your all-time greatest motorsport hero?

Michael Schumacher because he’s the most epic F1 driver ever.

Favourite road?

Mumbai’s Marine Drive.  Driving a classic car on the Queen’s Necklace is just a great feeling. 

What’s on your automotive bucket list?

A Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC (C107). 

What would you do with your last litre of fuel?

Preserve it, to show the next generation the liquid gold that was used to enjoy their automotive treasures.

Your ideal 5-car/bike garage would be?

Ferrari 250 GT

Mercedes-Benz 300 SL

BMW 507
