In all probability, that's what happened. This car had hit road weeks before the actor's marriage and if it was on a display at the reception means the dealer wanted to sack some buyers from the star-studded guest list of the reception. There had been news that the star himself was planning on a Cayman S and eventually settled for the Z4.

Speaking of the star's Z4, here is a pic of the same

Agreed. The Porsche dealer has resorted to smart marketing techniques.However it could be a rarity to find a movie celebrity (apart from the superstars -young one included) to purchase such expensive vehicles as remunerations for all artistes here are not on par with tamil/telugu industries.

I would suspect however that they were also targetting business/socialites present at the wedding.

Was Really surprised to see the SLS AMG in front of the Merc showroom with the doors open and fanatics ogling it from every angle.

Checked out the car, took a few pics and when I saw inside. another SURPRISE, the person @ the driving seat was none other than our dear HANMUST. He was there shooting for his show. You can also see his Merc in the background

@hanmust-was really a pleasure meeting you and please do share your experience driving the monster.

NB: The monster's growl=

Nice snaps R, with the arrival of the AMG fleet, Merc has earned back its lost glory in that area flocked with premium brands. Big time BMW replied with the //M-lineup!

When is the new 6 arriving?

The X6 is a charmer. Q7's design is getting dull.

The Q7 in the picture is pre-facelift. The new one albeit minor changes does strike a good pose!

Something about the X6 reminds me of the Ssangyong Actyon !

Nope, JLR is Jaguar-Land Rover.

Range Rover is a product of the Land Rover brand.

I think the Brand-pillar in front of the JLR kochi dealership leads to the confusion cos it has Jag, Land Rover and Range Rover logos.

Thanks dude, I was infact sorry that couldn;t recogonice you suddenly when I met you, as lot of guy (young & elders) were clicking snaps, coming & asking questions on SLS and few recogonise me as host of my show 'Fly Wheel'. All of a sudden I misunderstood you as one among them!

As you know am not regular in the forum, I checked it when one of my friend told me that you have mentioned my name.

I've covered all my experiance on my show which be aired soon, as of now am busy in readying the 50th episode which will telecaste on May 21. Thanks for everybody's support.
