No, I'm not sure. This price was given by an employee of the owner. He could very well be wrong.

Talking about the price, Aventador costs 3.8 crore bone stock ex-showroom, and with the options ticked costs on-road 6cr ish. Then, why not? The options list with the Mulsanne I'm sure is much, MUCH longer. Even then, a loaded Phantom EWB could set you back at more than 10cr (I'm being realistic here, I'm sure we have Phantoms costing MUCH more than that already in the country), so the Mulsanne, I believe, is considerably cheaper on comparison.

If im not wrong the car costs close to 3cr ex showroom Delhi.
And the car is also compared with Rolls Royce Ghost FYI

I still think the Mulsanne is a Phantom rival and not Ghost. The Flying Spur could be pitched against the Baby Roller.

If you know your Bentleys, the Mulsanne is the current flagship of the manufacturer, so is the Phantom for Rolls and that, I think, should be the fair comparison.

TG also compared the Aventador with the MP4-12C and 458 Italia, when the Aventador doesn't even belong in the same cubic capacity/cylinder/bhp/price range. I think they simply compared the cars that were available at hand. Else they would've had to wait for more than a year before Ferrari launched the F12 as the 599 GTO was already featured.

Mulsanne is slightly bigger than a RR Ghost and a bit more expensive , but it's no way a direct competitor to Phantom. A highly specced Mulsanne will be much cheaper than a similarly specced Phantom.

Bentley ,I am sure, would love to project Mulsanne as Phantom competitor but I don't think the rest of world agrees.

Sorry but I guess there is no harm in Discussing about the price and the competitor model of Mulsanne as it is purely knowledge sharing and nothing else and I also dont see any post where we are discussing about the owner.
If not here then please direct us to some other thread where we can discuss about the same.

Are there any Speed 97 pumps in Kerala? I doubt.

Thanks for pointing that out, mate. Thing is BP's Speed 97 is the only high octane petrol I know about. No clue on what HP or IOC makes other than High Power or Extra Premium.

Was curious on what fuel supercar owners in Kerala went for...

Is there a Maroon BMW X5M in Cochin or is it another modded car? Saw one few days back. Just got a glimpse of it. Had a M badge, chunky rubbers, dual exhausts.

A friend owns a Vermilion Red X6 3.0d with //M-kit and wheels. Are you sure this was not it? Actual X5/6 //M has quad exhausts.

Definitely not a X6 Vish. It was a X5 with M badge. Rubbers look similar though. Yes, I think it had quad exhausts. Not sure.
