    The surname is Mavi. there seems to have been a typo.
    The lambo has been with the Mavi family since at least December 2011, when it was first put on display at several hotel entrances for typical ostentation.

    These Gaurav and Amit Mavi are cheats who have looted various people in Noida and greater noida beside Lucknow as well. The company BOP pvt ltd. which was called Better option propmart in the past and is renamed recently as Birds of Paradise has duped NOT only people looking for a home but their own Channel Sales Partner and their own Employees as well. The company has NOT returned the commission amount to its Channel sales partner and hasn’t paid the salaries to 100’s of its employees. OMG and Home Lucknow which are the projects made by Bayaweaver (The construction company under same Umbrella) are over priced and over rated. Bayaweaver has suddenly closed their office which was registered at Gurgaon address and have No such particular office in Noida as of now. 100s of their employees have left and 100s are still waiting for their salaries to come. God save them all – Employees, Property buyers and channel sales partners. They are buying these expensive cars from people’s money. Shame on them. they own Rolls Royce as well beside this lambo.
