i have seen the car in bangalore.its one heaven of a car.each door weights 300 kgs out of the 4 tonne weight of the vehicle.the door cannot be just closed it has to be pushed as in you are push starting a car.the thickness of the glass is almost 2 inches.it has fire extinguishers in the side.has a mic in the cabin with a speaker outside to negotiate with the terrorists .has bullet proof tyres too.has oxygen masks like in the aircraft.the only thing i liked in this car was the heart of it.12 cylinder.

Is this in CKD form? or CBU? if CBU then I don't see the fuss for a press release as those were anyways available for imports?

With a W12 and a 4 tonne kerb weight, I'd say somewhere in the first few digits of our number system. A lot of our celebs already have got bullet proof cars ordered from abroad. Now of course, they can just buy one off the shelf without going through all the hassles of importing one themselves.

read about it the paper this morning.
5.5 cr is the stock version.
Bulletproofing costs 4 cr more (assuming S600 is for 1.5 cr)??

I read this in NDTV , I think they might sell in good number at least 10 -15 per year.They might mostly target the Government High officials like MPs and take the order from the government too.
I am sure BMW also has one of this kind and it's a B7 range.
