Its a regular 3 series coupe and i think it is sold a long time back. It made way for the E270 at that time.

What a pity,he should have kept the coupe and not get it replaced by the e270.E46 3 series still looks good.

Is Salman's E39 M5 the only one in India or there are more?

I am sure there must be more in India, but none spotted or mentioned off. This is the only one i have seen up close and personal.

If Salman has held on to the E39, that speaks volumes of his taste. A true classic, a timeless design and an absolute blast to drive.

Is his M5 well-maintained yet, or showing its age?

I remember SRK once said in an interview that FIAT premier padmini was his first car.

I think Salman's M5 had also featured in his Movie "Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya?"

Not sure if this is posted here before. Tried to look for it, but couldnt find. Mr. AB jr and Mrs. in their Bentley. Is that the speed version? Some sites have mentioned Mr. AB owning a GT speed.

Probably he has bought another speed version. But this surely isn't a speed.

This pic was posted before and this isn't a Speed. Sometimes, he must have upgraded to GT Speed.

The car is still in its prime and young as ever engine wise. There is the odd little cracks developing in the front lip but nothing major. The best part is the car is a manual and loads of fun to drive. If he sells i am buying.
Have pictures but my Bluetooth on the black berry keeps acting up and refuses to send pictures.

Yes it did. The only difference is now the wheels are black.

This is not the speed version but the normal GT. The car has not been replaced and no there is no other GT Speed in their garage. They were thinking of getting the Bentley CFS Speed, but dont know what happened to that.
