Isn't that 730Ld spotted in front of Sky line Builders office? If so its the most loaded & expensive 730Ld to be sold by Platino Classic.

I dont know where to post this snap , it was taken from a work shop in Abudabi and handed over to me.

Can any one identify this car ?

Some one said it is custom made from California.

It runs on a Ford engine.


Mods I know that it is strictly off topic , please relocate the snaps to an appropriate thread. I apologize for the in convenience.

Nice snaps & good to share it, since Vishnu produced all the details not explianing more. I've seen a similar car at Khaja's collection, but i was told that its modded by them & it had a modded Merc 115's grille.

I was wondering why you hadn't turned up for the delivery....

I ought to have a snap or two of the handing over function. Let me see if I can find it. I'm sure Hani will oblige when he does get to drive the new bug

Nope, I did not hear any radio. The guy was zooming past in it. One thing I noticed it that speedo & tacho meters were not working.

Scorcher, I don't think it was any actor. At least, I could not perceive.

Thanks,

I just noticed that in the first pic that the speedo and the tacho don't seem to be working
What could be the reason for that ?
