Default Merc Limo spotted in Bangalore

this was spotted by me sometime back.... pics taken from Nokia 6600 while riding with my cousin on his bike, hence not so good quality pics....








and these pics are of another merc ...








those seats you see in the above pic are of a RR imported from UK

Hey Jay, the color combination and the rear end looks like that of a maybach. BTW, one of my friend said he has seen a Maybach twice in Bangalore at the Golden Palms Resort belonging to __________. Probably he has seen this Merc Limo and mistook it for a Maybach.

Note from moderator - Please do not reveal owner identities. Please make yourself familiar with the TBHP rules.

may be Santhosh, but this one had a MH reg plate, if the one your friend saw had the same reg then it might be the same one...

I followed it one night - looks like a Maybach but it is a mere W124 limo with new front/rear ends grafter on.

Youre right RJ

That is indeed the tail lamp of the Optra.

I guess the only thing nice about both cars are their interiors.

havent seen the interiors of the merc limo but have seen the interiors of he merc van...
you should really see the interiors to really appreciate it dude... those RR's seats are very comfortable... the stand in front of the seats ( as can be seen in the pics ) has a small TV, everything inside is controlled by a touch screen ( includes lowering of leather cover on the windows, A/C temp etc ). the rear windscreen ( covered by leather as can be seen in the pic ) has a wide screen TV attached to a DVD system...

I don't think those are RR seats. If I'm not mistaken, they're W220 S-Class individual seats positioned to produce a 'captain' seat design, found in many MPVs of the US of A.

I like all the technical gadgetry...especially retractable leather covers.
