That is second most hot new that took me by shock. The first being the Conti Supersports in Chennai(AP regd). This is one car I dream of gifting my parents on their anniversary. Looks a million bucks in white. Great find bro.

Welcome aboard tushar. The SL in your profile pic looks like the one from Alleppey(55 AMG). The Z4 too was known to be a wedding purchase. Good to see both belong to a garage Do post the reports and pics.

Which SL are you talking about Scorcher? It looks like it has a SLR nose. The SLR nosed Merc was a SLK, IIRC.

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?

Thank you! It's not the very first, but will be one of the first E-Coupes, as most of the cities will be delivering atleast one coupe in these days.

Wow the coupe looks awesome. Just curious from the picture is the side glass just one big glass , or is it two sections ?
How much more expensive is the vehicle than the normal E ?

Welcome abroad Thushar, Hope to spot your Z4 in Thrissur sometime.Had seen your FIL's SL for repair in Cochin, the service advisor was quoting around 20lakhs for repair when I enquired.

The e-coupe has been priced at around 55 odd lakhs so its about 10 lakhs more expensive.It has a frameless b-pillar but it has 2 seperate windows for the front and rear.The rear window winds down fully to give a seamless open area.

Oh yaar. I did get that info and I completely forgot to post it. Thanks anyways !

Anyways, here is a pic of a Merc shot at Fort Kochi. Again, surfaced while the Monsoon drive. Don't know the model and all. So dont know where it belongs in the Vintage section, please move if needed.

Hey that's a really nice picture, art wise. Even I have no idea about the model of the car, but just wanted to say it looks very nice!
