Facelifts IMO.
The Q7 with a slight nip and tuck is testing around Pune everyday.
Similarly other models maybe.
But then, I am just guessing

Sale of S4 being abruptly discontinued in India just started making sense :P

I was just going to post this. If a 11.6L C200 becomes 41L,then a 16.5L CLS250cdi can be 60L when launched here.

I also saw this.A4 2.0 Tdi with Quattro.Hello there!

Bentley imports in 2014(as per www.zauba.com).

Note:
1.Any Bentley imported between 1st Jan 2014 to 31st Dec 2014 is considered.
2.The number of imports may not be indicative of the number of cars sold,since i am not considering sales of 2013 cars or cars which remain unsold.
3.Does not include these two vintage Bentleys.

• 1 1948 Bentley Mark 6
• 1 1960 Bentley S2



Total number of Bentley’s imported: 51

Break up:


Flying Spur

1. W12 : 28
2. V8 : 9
3. A single 2013 Continental(Continental moniker dropped for the next gen) Flying Spur was imported,the last in the country.

Total : 37


Continental GT

1.W12 :

• Coupe : 1
• Coupe Speed : 1
• GTC : None

2.V8

• Coupe : 5
• GTC : 2


Total : 9


Mulsanne : 4

Looks like its been a good year for Bentley even with prices skyrocketing.The W12 Flying Spur seems to be a biggest favourite,with a vast pool of S/7/A8 users looking to upgrade to them along with older Flying Spurs users.

Rolls Royce imports in 2014(as per www.zauba.com)

Note:
1.Any Rolls Royce imported between 1st Jan 2014 to 31st Dec 2014 is considered.
2.The number of imports may not be indicative of the number of cars sold,since i am not considering sales of 2013 cars or cars which remain unsold.
3.Does not include these one vintage Rolls Royce

• 1 1933 Rolls Royce 20/25.



Total number of RR’s imported: 29

Break up:


Ghost

1. EWB : 4
2. SWB : 15

Total : 19


Phantom

3. EWB : 3
4. SWB : 4

Total : 7


Wraith : 3

So the number of RR sales has been about 60% of Bentley sales.I wonder if just 29 cars is enough to keep two showrooms running.At the very upper level of the India sedan market,it seems the venerable Phantom is still ahead of the Mulsanne.

Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4 for testing

Overland is the 2nd highest trim for the Cherokee model.

Loads n loads of A3 Cabriolets. Either Audi has received so many orders (doubtful) or they're just stockpiling

Quite a lot of Mercedes Benz E250 CDI. Nothing great, but it says "Regd only as Tourist Vehicle". How is the customs concerned by this ? Aren't the tax benefits during registration ? Correct me if needed.

Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV for testing. 2.8L Diesel engine, looks like a good Fortuner competitor. (Also notice this i8 which has been declared at 56L, the earlier models were declared much higher at 90L)

Must be under EPCG , in past people used such imports for personal use with regular plates so maybe they have added this description in BOE / clearing papers to ensure these gets registred only in commercial category with yellow plates

There is only one 458 speciale sanctioned for India, depending on booking of it by the first week of next month. If no one books cars production allotment goes to another dealer in whichever country. My information comes straight from the ferrari dealership. So 2 speciale, is wrong info.

Why do they bother with the homologation costs when a new diesel engine (fitted in the new Jag XE) is on its way in 6 months
