Question: what is the similarity between Suzuki and Toyota?

apart from fact that they are both Japanese car manufacturers obviuosly!

well.in early part of 19th century, both these companies were making powered looms for textile industry!!!

(toyota still does manufacture equipment or textile industry)

they both started to make cars to expand their business!!!

automobiles were not their core business for many decades!

 I_see  But since both these chaps or is it company's were making looms we expect them to give very good quality fabrics on their upholstery. For Toyota (TKM, Bangalore)the upholstery is of very good quality but for Maruti (Maruti Suzuki Motors Ltd) it needs improvement.

Another question- which is the most exquisite car made till date that has fetched the maximum price at a Sotheby's auction nearly a decade back. ??? In all seven were built and six still survive. 

More facts about the Bugatti Royale Type 41. Out of those built three were never sold and remained with the Bugatti family. That car was designed and meant for royalty but there were no buyers were from that category. The car had a straight 12.7 litre OHC/ 300 bhp engine. This engine was also used in French railcars.

Some corrections: --Only six were built and this car debuted in 1926

                              --In 1986 in an auction a Type 41 with a Kellner body

                                was sold for $8 million (US)

                              -- A decade back at a Sotheby's auction, a Type 41

                                  Bugatti Royale was sold for US $ 9.8 million
