Very nice review GTO. Mercedes is planing to get in the E350 which will be a stonker for sure, but you can get 2 Cs at the price of one E350 which is expected to be not less then 65L On The Road in Mumbai.

65 lakhs for an E Class! Whopper! Put in 10 lakhs more and you have an S with the same engine.

Exactly, however there are a few people who wouldnot mind it as they might already be having a S. Its going to be a limited run of around 30. Also the S Class is going to become cheaper now as its going to be made here itself.

I highhhhhly doubt this. 65 Lakhs for the E is too much money, thats the same price as the previous S.
It doesnt make sense getting the E350 as the current E280 is really fast, if someone really needs more power and has 65 lakhs to shell out they would E63 AMG

But with the tax structure what it is in India i doubt a E63 will come for 65 grand but i can assure you i read it more then a few times to confirm 65Lacs for a E with a engine of a S. When will Brabus come to India. Mercedes need more power.

i have been told by mercedes that the e350 will be 63 lacs
they will be fully loaded with panoramic sunroof and full memory seat package
they are the facelifted E's which are now on sale in europe

strange enough i was told only 6 cars were being brought down by mercedes
delivery is october

one important reason for the price is that they will be CBU

Wouldn't it just be better to get an S-class for that kind of money??
