Now thats a state car. A car that screams power, character and strength. If I were part of the government, a W140 would be driving me around.

But then, if wishes were horses......

Earlier, a black six-door Mercedes (don't remember the model) used to be the official car of our President. It was auctioned-off around a decade back because it wasn't bullet proof. Cyrus Poonawala bought it. Can anyone can locate its picture?

I believe the Poonalwala's bought the pullman 600 or 500 which was in production between late 60's through early 80's..the one with the standing head lights a la w108/109 I forget the series now. There is another such car with a mumbai guy who loves to hoard cars he has some of the rarest restored/unrestored cars and his pullman was used by the Maharashtra governer in the 80's as well. I believe pistures of this car are else where on the post ...it is not dirven but put on stands!! cheers
