Hi S350, Actually even i thought abt that. Less power for more money. But considering the fact that its the best roadster in the world, i feel its money well spent.

No but next time it comes ill click some pics and send it
Very hot,
And v12 i think it's money well spent cause people who buy SL dun just buy it for racing or somethin,
If i buy SL it's something id buy for its tremendous practicality and also let you have some smoking fun once in a while,

But like i said the SL600 wud leave people's thoughts on having less horse power

95L + 20 for all good options including drive dynamic seats, Glass roof, AMG kit, Bi xenon, Phone, Parktronic, Keyless go, Exclusive Nappa leather,

So car cost wud be about 1.15

RTO in gujarat for CBU is double so 10 % = 11.5L
+ 3% insurance = 4 L

1.30 it is!

Thumbs up

Hey Khanak,
According to your profile this car seems to be stationed at Hiranandani?? ... boy those 275/30 profile tyres have a profile thinner than those on my cycle!!! .... BTW must admit good attention to detail paid ... neat pics there... keep it up!!
Moreover a closer look at those discs(rusted rather) say the the car hasn't been driven much.
PS : Can anybody tell me which Co. are those alloys from?

One last thing ... Khanak ... going forward kindly blank out the registration number plate.

Its all of that.
This car has amazingly huge wheels and very very low profile tyres. Seen this car around one month back. It was suspended on jacks. And all I could see was the side profile of the car.

I have no idea which company the wheels are from. They maybe from Mercedes itself. I had checked the optional wheels that Mercedes supplies with their cars and this wasn't listed. Maybe its their new product.

The wheels look good on this SL. The tyre profile is way too low for our roads. Lets wait and see how long the wheel retains its round shape. BTW they could be any after-market wheels. Car was on jacks at Auto Hangar so its possible that the wheels could have been imported by them. Just a possibility.

S600 Benz, could you shed some light on this?
