Gentlemen, that is not a desi stretch Merc with a Bentley badge

It is stretched by Binz in Germany, authorised by Mercedes. It belongs to a well known Poona based family.

If it's the famous car collector's car, then why the Bentley and E63 badge?

Going by the reg. series it seems to be Adar Poonawala's car. The older gen. Limo is owned by Yohan Poonawala.

@sleeping in the back seat - my dad does it all the time - even in the Maruti 800 !

This is quite an old car. I remember seeing it in Koregaon park way back in the 90's.

Although the stretched W211 is an authentic Binz job the E63 badge seems like a fake becasue this car does not have any of the AMG claddings (bumpers/sideskirts etc) and even if those were taken of because of the stretch job ( I would make sure they were back on) the hubcap wheels are typical of the Binz/Trasco jobs where a standard basic trim car is taken and strected say a E320 or something but E 63 this car doe not seem to be.
