No Rishi, it isn't an S10 but a Palio 1.6 Sport. The owner of this car was a Fiat dealer who got kicked out after the Tata merger so mebbe he had access to an S10 spoiler. The fender on the Sport and the S10 is the same unlike the non-creased GTX fender.

Joint Venture partner of DC is Al Araba Group. Al Araba, founded in 1980 is a company in Saudi Arabia. They have experience in all types of automotive works like armored vehicles, customized vehicles for special usage, vehicles for handicapped, electrical vehicles, buses and caravans.

This explains how and why the car was in Saudi.

Presumably, all of the above.

what was this guy thinking. a nice swift spoilt this way. the front is made to look like the old civics. the colour scheme is horrible. the front petrudeing part in front of the radiator make it look like he wants to leave a mark in the car ahead. dam bad job overall.

Default Wierd Vip Merc

I saw this wierd merc.
It had VIP badge (Do you need to tell that you are a VIP?) and some more stuff because of which I clicked her pic.
Specially the Chrome No. 1 on the no.plate.

The roof was painted black to make it look like a S-class (new), also it sports, brabus and s300 badges?

The sides had those chrome arches (like the ones taxi walas have on the the wheel wells.)
It also had a Flag post at the front.

By the way What does Gourmet of India mean?

Here have a look:
