Are those just exhaust tips on the Range Rover or a performance exhaust? Look like they can take out aircrafts too.

I am not sure about that, will consult with the owner and get back. This is the same which was on display with your brother's Fz at PSN.

@foby.sebastian - I'm quite sure I've seen the same car a couple of years back in Chennai at a welder's shop. Has this car been bought from here?

This car was originally Shell white, with red interiors. It used to belong to the producer of a very famous movie. It was bought as a direct import just after his movie was released.

The sad part is that the guy died a very sad death, and was a complete pauper by then.


It was sold in he late 90's/early 2000's to a car dealer in cochin.

Post the sale, it lay unused for quite a while at a once famous imported car garage in cochin. That garage, was closed due to some fights between the owners.

Saw a MH /DL registered merc S 500/600 @ Alwaye parked on the side of the NH 47 . To my understanding it was unloaded from a carrier truck and was waiting for the owner to fetch it out . It was there for more than 2 days and all happened in Dec 2011 . sorry no snaps.

Are you referring to the white W140 on the side of the highway? if so, i believe its no 500, but a 320. It was the same car which was put up in tbhp classifieds, with smoked our rear lights n all.

The movie is 'Chemeen', and the producer is Babu Ismail Sait.

Yes, iirc, this car is with Dr Ravi Prakash now
