Amitabh Bachchan posted this on his FB referring it to as "my car". Going by the rims it looks like an AMG. Any more info on this GL?

IIRC, the GL350 came with the AMG kit in the initial lot. That might be the reason of the AMG rims.

Saw him driving the same GL yesterday near oberio mall, He was very cautious while driving, Mostly because people were stopping in front of his car, Middle of the road just to look at him!

Look at the rear wheel closely and you might notice the red brake caliper. Also it has the factory optioned rear seat entertainment system, so I'm sure it's a 63 AMG.

The wheels that came on the Launch Edition GL 350 CDI are different ones. This is a GL63 AMG.

This might be the test car. It's DL registered and doesn't have his fav Regn#6969 hence I have my doubts on whether this is actually his car.

However if he has bought it, it's great to see him with a mean machine. He truly deserves it, he drove a beat up esteem in our younger days. He has come a long way and has been using a black XJ past few years.

"Our younger days"? You know him from before?

Also I think he drives a white XJ and not black. I guess it's the same car that you see him driving off in that video of his performing the dare in the middle of the road sometime back.

Err I mentioned that he was "test" driving in the the post. And I suppose he should be getting a new car after his next film is out.

Ranveer owns a black XJ-L. The white one on that video is probably a loaner which he was using when his car went for service.

My bad, I didn't read the test word.

Yes, he's a childhood friend. He has a black XJ Regn 6969. White one I think was a loaner.

If you've seen the latest movie 'Tamasha', you must have come across two interesting cars, both seen during the song 'Heer to badi sad hai'. One is a BMW M....(?) and another one, a red car seen behind Deepika in the background. Can anyone help identify these cars.
