Plight of the cars which traveled the length and breadth of the country being showcased as the best Merc has to offer. I know this might be a short stay but don't they deserve a better place in a shady garage, or at least in a good body cover?

Its so disheartening to see the plight of machines worth so much of sweat and heart, not to forget crores of money, and now lying in such a condition! especially machines like SLS and SL AMG! and I thought only maruti or hatch manufaturers had their cars carelessly parked in their yard but now i see even the big boys take their customers for a ride! no value for money no values for humans!

Hey Yamdoot. This is an old post and i do hope you'll read and reply to this. Any idea where this bike is located. There is a grim chance that the bike is still at the same location; it's just that i'm looking out for a YPVS and would be keen on getting more details on this bike.

Thanks. Fjhustler.

Sad entry into the exotics list in Chennai. The ex - Medical College & Hospitals Jaguar S-Type (one of just 2 that were around in the city) is now lying covered by dust and unattended outside Technokrat, Nelson Manickam Road

Nah, it's in Phagwara, on NH1 towards Jalandhar. They got moved from the road side, since the road got widened to 6/8 lanes.

Most of the exotic lovers of Kerala ought to be familiar with this car, gathering rust in a known garage, the mechanic told me the poker is actually waiting for some engine parts.

Right Mr. Boss, it was actually disheartening to see the poker gathering all the dust in the world. Have a gut feeling the car has some other problem other than unavailability of parts, maybe some paperwork issues.

What a pity! That too an SLS AMG. Someone will order a red one soon, i wont be surprised if Merc polish it up and give it away. Maybe add a couple lakhs discount and call it a good gesture.

Skoda did that to me with my laura, there is no way Mercedes will write that off and send it back to germany.

The SL is an outdated model isnt it? Mercedes are due to launch the new model pretty soon?!

These cars were present for the SCC event in Mumbai. The SL is the new SL 63 amg.

In the car park next to VW Downtown. I think it blew its clutches but no idea why so long. Plenty of older Jetta's and Passats awaiting parts. The dust and sand makes it look dire
