That definitely looks like a S-Type. Don't remember any other car having that distinctive (read:hideous) face. However, it is really sad to see such a lovely car rotting away.

The place that houses the S Type, also has a W 220 S Class in a much worse condition. There is also a similar fated contessa and few famous classics that were used in the films of the 80's. All rotting away.

Any idea, if this celica is for sale? I'd be interested in bringing her back on the roads. Can anyone from Mumbai help me out.

Sad indeed but it is a posibility that the car has paper issues and hence abandoned.

This is the S type and from the color i think it was Hritik Roshans car. This car was a direct import and bought through an importer..last i know the car was being used by someone else..and i have a feeling due to moving on to the S class this car is left to rot. The other possibility is also not clean papers.

Quite possible Speedy! The car had a HR registration - which most probably would have been a (Beware: Fake registration numbers on Imported Cars (proof on Pg 3))Jhol car.

Both Ripper & anish9000 are right, as I could see that graffiti still existing on the car, although faded.

There are few other exotics and not so-exotics abused in films lying in this garage.

Spotted the same SL and another White SL on my visit to Bombay last month.
Both are 280's I guess.

Samyakmodi : The black SL is parked at a well known dealers bungalow in Santacruz. It's been lying there since a long time - so I guess it maybe for sale (HR Registered).
