The 'night vision' is about 1,11,000 based on Euro prices. I am not too convinced how effective it is & neither was Clarkson when he tested it on Top Gear.

The 19'' rims are great..

Yeah the 1,11,000 price tag is a bit much. I wouldn't take clarkson's word for anything, he cries about everything that's not British.

Just that whether there are any cars in India since only AMG seem to be the prominent ones.

You are right, all of them are AMG ones. As far as I am aware the best one is the white S65 AMG in Bombay.. Haven't heard or seen any other modded S Class apart from the AMG ones..

Even abroad you don't see too many modded S Classes.. They are quite rare sites. Although the ones I have seen look absolutely stunning!

Hopefully one comes to India in the near future!

Night Vision come in handy to spot pavement dwellers in the dark. Especially for filmstars and grandsons of naval chiefs as they return home late night from parties.

Beautiful post. Made me giggle at this unholy hour. Giggle like a trippy banshee, I did.

Hey man no worries! So there is a Brabus S in India!
Good to hear that. Old or New Gen they are simply amazing. I am sure somone at TBHP would catch it sooner or later.

Even though there is only one S65 AMG, MB India have sole couple of S63 AMG in the country. And if I'm right one is in Delhi, another one in Punjab (Ludhiana/Chandigard). I'm not very sure about the locations.
