That clears everything. I saw the Maroon one immediately the next day it was all in the papers that he had bought one. So he had two. How convenient.

Cyrus, that probably was the Godrej's Maybach that you saw.

Is this all true? 2 Maybachs. And has Godrej imported his Maybach or bought it through Merc-Inida?

Isn't Mukesh Ambani's S600 Biege in colour? Some one has posted its snaps earlier in the forum.

Ive seen him in a Biege L7 (His father's ex car)..actually his wife and him in what used to be his father's car a Black stretch S600. But since he has two Maybachs, he might have S600s in various colours too

One in Pune, the Manikchand Maybach.
Somehow the Maybach has not quite caught an Indian's fancy and niether has it caught any other country's fancy I presume.
It looks horrible, and is more expensive than a Rolls. Thats what killed the enthusiasm I think.
The same treatment will be metted out to Rolls if they venture to make a cheaper car to target the S Class buyer. The sales may plunge upwards but the snob circle will dismiss it as then it would not be that exclusive a car thereby sacrificing the company's la de dah image.

Dude, ok that I know, but whats is his S600's colour & has he got more than one S600s. Also does he has a R or a GL-class or both. One of my importer friend from Mumbai told he has got a R, but recently one of the Ambanis got new GL!
