Default Mercedes G63 6x6 AMG spotted in Mumbai!

The first Mercedes G63 6x6 AMG has landed in Mumbai, and has been spotted at the airport.

Tuned by Brabus, it has to be the most gangsta SUV in the country without a doubt !!

Well, that pic was taken in London, not Mumbai. The Mumbai registered Aventador has been out there for a couple of years.

Woah! That too a Brabus with 700 hp(metric) and a price tag north of $700k! Damn!
Anybody knows how many of these were made? AFAIK, Mercedes made "a little over 100 units" of the 'standard' G63 6x6.
And is it here for the Parx Supercar Show?

Wait, isn't that the same MH registered Aventador that ran Gumball 3000? So the car resides in London with a Challenger Hellcat and Brabus 700 G63 6x6 for garage mates?! Wonder what the story is.
Oh and BTW, the real source of the picture is GF Williams Photographer: https://www.facebook.com/GFWilliamsP...634722337860:0

Why pay twice the price and buy it in India if the owner wanted to take it to London? Now I am real curious to know the story of this garage and owner!

What I meant was the owner "could" be the same. This pic is from London no doubt. I didn't say it's from Mumbai but just that since the Aventador is from here so was guessing the ownership. Sorry for putting it that way!

Last year I was told by my friend (his cousin from extended family) that the Aventador owner (or someone in their extended family) also owns the G63 6X6. Couldn't believe it back then.

It must be because there were no 'proper' roads to drive here, lots of speed breakers and sometimes HUGE potholes. Also, the shock value that it received here was hell of a lot greater than what it would have got at London. Why pay twice the price? May be because they can. Or there must be something more to it.

@Shyn :: The Hellcat and BRABUS 700 indeed belong to the MH48S1 garage. The Hellcat isn't stock I heard. He has more stuff as well.

And the car has been there ever since it went for its first GUMBALL. Why pay thrice? Well, the owner is a handicap and the car has hand controls. It is one of a kind. So he bought the car in India, used it for a while here and then took it to UK and it's been there since. To return soon, I hear.

'Hand controls'? That makes it so much more special! Deserves a separate thread if somebody has more details and pics of the interior. Hats-off to the owner and his enthusiasm. Wonder where the job was done.
And since they belong to the same owner, I am assuming the Hellcat and 6x6 have similar hand control modifications, right?
And is the mammoth here for the Parx show?

Is this car here for good & will be registered in India ?

AFAIK no RHD 6x6 AMG's were ever made & this being an LHD how will it be registered here ?

The LP700 is already back in Mumbai I believe, saw a pic of both the LP700 and the Brabus 700 together in some warehouse.

Carnet maybe !

But then Mr.Ratan Tata's LHD cars are all registered so we never know.

Could be here on carnet, not sure if you can pay a penalty & get it registered here inspite of it being LHD e.g. Ratan Tata's Ferrari California & few of his other cars. More info by GTO on the below link:

Now if only somebody can settle the dust on whether the 6x6 is here to stay or just a visitor on carnet!
I am guessing it is on carnet going by the registeration plates on it.

Is this a part of the Virar garage? Looks like a behemoth on our comparatively smaller roads..

No thread on this special vehicle can be complete without Hammond's outstanding review - one of the best Top Gear has done.
