Regarding the car being pampered. hmmm I'll just say, the owner took the right decision

Guys, what say on this shade? This one got offloaded from the truck today.
Black seems to be a nice colour for Z4 ,where is it headed?

I got really confused reading this,AFAIK there is one trivandrum registered Merc GL with 444 as number

No where as of now. Waiting for someone with Vitamin M

I beleive that the Thrissur based RR Ghost was of a different colour . So this might be a new addition to the state. Guys from Tvm, any idea??

Sorry, for the crappy pic from mobile.
Nope, he is from Calicut and is a planter. He must be having some plantations that side, or may be visiting hanmust's resort in Wayanad who happens to be a good friend of this person. He does have the white Cayenne and even the Carrera Cabrio.

Whoa, nice catch. You beat Tvm bhpians at spotting the car.

Yes, that is my friend's car. He upgraded from a white Endeavor with the same number. There is another white GL which is a very common sight even in the wee hours of night. I stopped clicking that car. It is still on temp. registration.

AFAIK, the Thrissur NRI's Ghost was gifted to his youngest daughter on her marriage and is in Pune right now. That's what I heard. It is the same color, black with silver bonnet.

This Ghost is a new addition to Kerala and is located at Kollam

Now I get it. Yes, the guy does own the Carrera too. I came to know he(or family?) even owns a ship . His father, is basically from Wayanad, and they are currently settled in Calicut.

He is a planter and a businessman. They have good businesses even in FMCG. The Jag was spotted in front of their textile shop, one of the oldest, in Bathery.

I guess the reason could be that by the time a person can actually afford to buy one of these cars, one must have already entered the second half (or almost entering) of lifetime. At this stage, probably one tends to enjoy the lighter shades more.

That is not a reason,there are a lot of young entrepreneurs buying these high end cars

Point i feel to be noted is the price itself.Even if you are ready to spend some money on a BMW or Merc still you look for cheapest available and that's white,A best example an Ice sliver Audi A4 cost 1 lakh more than an ibis white one

That is the second Ghost as @scorcher rightly said. The car is at the owners resort in Calicut. Just had a look. I'm sorry, no pics. Also, an orange gallardo spyder will be on its way to calicut this week. Expect to see some bits from a prominent tuning house on the car.

Note - Media covered car, hence not covering the plates.

Saw this Willys Jeep Wagon '63 model in my college.


This one belonged to the American consulate and was bought by its current owner about 20 years back. It was brought down to tvm for an auto show.


Hats off to the owner who has maintained it in immaculate condition
