I Agree. But to be precise, the Maybach S500 is an SKD car with every single component being imported into the country.

Not really, it went to a well known household in the rural area of Malappuram district.

Yes, Anand, it very much is.

As much as it seems nothing's changed from the outside, the interior has been totally revamped with full custom leather and CF panels.

Pretty sure while I'm saying this, knowing the owner, the exterior also wont remain the same for long

It has landed finally. Scorcher, can you tell the car he has owned in chronological order. I'm sure, I would have missed some of the cars he has bought. Share if its okay with you, will be interesting to know his past collections.

There is a red Nissan 350 Z doing rounds at Thrissur without number plate and other few missing cosmetic parts. Looks like it was the one which was awaiting its entry to the road from dusty customs area of the port.

Looks like the Avanti has been a hit among Keralites. The orange one and now this!
