Sahil: The S'550' is actually just an S500. The 550 nonmenclature was adopted due to some dumb Marketing manouvre specifically for the US of A. The rest of the world still uses the S500 badge.

Anybody need more proof that American's are influenced by 'bigger is better'?

Thanks for the clarification. Now that means there are two new S500s already in Pune.

The new S is really fantastic automobile..I was told by the Chandigard dealer that a S600 is there to be delivered through them & also a G55 AMG . A few S500 are there in Mumbai & Delhi too and 1 in Banaglore too.

Seems that its S500..the 9-spoke alloys is very sporty, seeing it first time in Indian road..Is it big B's car..

what ever I think that Indian actors r atleast becoming non-supersitious regarding the wheels, cos it was heared that earlier Indian stars had a belief that if he owns a three-pointed star, it may break down his star value..
