Default Stretched indian cars!

saw the mercedes E class limosine at the workshop in bombay and thought i would share it with you. the car looks to be a 2000/01 model and had come in for a service and interior cleaning. sorry no interior pictures. will try and get them at a later date









Mods if this thread needs to be merged with anyother thread please do so. thank you

i was told the car comes in regularly for its service and for a polish and interior clean up job. i have asked the mercedes people to send me interior pictures of the car since the concerned person who had the keys was not there.

Nice pics!
I would bet on it being a stretch job.

Also I saw a similar stretch job on a Camry done. The vehicle was parked in the parking lot of Shangri La in Delhi.

seeing the front seats it looks like a job done by DC but the guys at mercedes say it is an original import.

i have seen some limo's in india and most of them abroad. the hummers, porsche cayenne and even saw a 911 limo once.

I have seen a couple of years back a similar type of merc limo outside Gambhir's house in Delhi. I am not quite sure but, it was probably a slightly older model than this one

all the other cars you mentioned are ok as they are anyway for pure luxury
BUTT a 911 limo IMO its a waste of money
but anyway maybe the owner wants to project certain image

it was a limo company so the owner of the firm makes money out of the car. it is to increase the image of the firm and to increase the product lineup.
