It has to be from export surplus i guess.
There is a white one in chandigarh as well, exactly similar to this, so its original.

A friend of mine has a left hand drive santro Xing.

Well, not a very clear picture but still one can get an idea what I was talking about. This is a crop from the footage from the dashcam (so Latheesh - shush )

This must be from the transit-damage batch of cars that were on the market about 3 years ago. I test drove one myself. They were all LHD and were later converted and sold for anything between 6-8 lakhs depending on the buyer. The one I saw was mint green,had 18"rims with pirelli tyres, fantastic leather interiors, a sunroof, and was originally bound for Switzerland. Had a dents and scratches on the right side of the car. The reason I backed off was because the seller said he'll give me a Goa registration. This and the thought of having it reconverted to RHD (and subsequent issues if any) put me off.

I know this used car showroom in Thrissur near Lourde church. Their showroom is full of Bmws and Mercs. They usually keep modified Honda, Baleno etc. in the front to protect the more precious cars inside in case someone crashes into their showroom

ha ha ha - loved the comment. If vehicles were to play sports, I am sure the G63 would be a rugby player.
