Back in the days when the 'King of Good Times' was a legitimate description for him, Vijay Mallya's luxury toys were a byword in billionaire circles. Though banks have now taken possession of Kingfisher House, Mallya's legendary collection of vintage cars is pretty much intact, with "no noteworthy additions or subtractions", according to the company spokesperson.
While his collection, part of which is maintained as a private museum in the US, includes Ferraris, Porsches, Rolls-Royces and other marquee names, Mallya's regular commute in India is in a Mercedes S500. Mallya also owns the vintage motor yacht, Kalizma, and rents the Indian Empress. He no longer owns any corporate aircraft.
