The SSangyong Musso came with a Mercedes Benz Engine, During my days in Muscat, Oman my friend had one. The car was quite cheap buying used (just about a Lakh Rs). But the car could really move.

The Autobiography edition comes only for Supercharged Petrol version. I doubt if it will be economical for the stars extensive road travel. IIRC, he had a RR earlier too and sold due to some supercharger issues. Hope it wont face the same fate. I think the Diesel variant is best suited for him.

Agree with hani on the size issue of the guy, Even I wondered the moment you told me that it belongs to him. Q7 is best suited for him. He never drives it too. I've always seen him on the navigator seat only.

Not sure of channels dude, but he host some cookery shows, is a producer and one of the most reputed wedding/occasion caterer. His catering company is named after him only.

Edit - Oops, forgot to mention, Last day I saw my dentist driving around a white BMW X5. So, another X5 in trivandrum

It has been already discussed in this forum , that he is in to Kairali tv , his q7 appeared in Mamotty movie Chattambinaadu which was produced by him.

I had seen him in his both cars on different occasions , in q7 he was with the chauffeur and he usually sit besides the chauffeur and not in the middle seat.

Hani bhai, that is a beautiful car!
I guess it is not only the first one in Kerala, but probably in the whole country!
Has any E-coupe been featured in any of the other state threads on this site?

My personal opinion is that Merc E Coupe is the best looking coupe in the market now. Who ever bought it has got a good taste and i respect him as he let his heart rule his mind.

As Preetam has said, it's probably the first E-class coupe in the country. leave alone Kerala. Very nice looking car, but most people wouldn't distinguish it from the E-sedan. The lack of doors isn't too conspicuous. Thanks for sharing, Hani bhai!

I forgot to ask this in my last post. Is the panoramic roof a special option or is it factory fitted? Looks good!
