Seen the M5 yet again in my area and took MORE pics of it. The car had a different set of alloys. The car was very dusty. Took these pics at about 2330 HRS. Later I hear that at 0130 HRS, there was Spiderman's SL55AMG and a Silver Cayenne parked there too.

Salman lives next door to me and it's a treat looking at this m5 everyday from my window for the past few years. Was disappointed to see his alloys with a black finish....they r the same design as before but seems like he has painted them grey-ish black for some reason.
His mean machine is back too....The landcruiser... but this time he is trying his luck with the toyota rather than the lexus he had before....its golden in color ...lets hope this beast ddoesnt see the fate of its former one.

Spiderman is Bhushan Kumar, son of late Gulshan Kumar, current owner of T-Series Music company. He used to own
  • Red Ferrari 355 F1 Spider
  • Yellow Ferrari 360 Spider
  • Red Mercedes SL500
  • Red BMW 5 Series
  • Red BMW Z3
  • A beach buggy (or sandbike)

He currently owns
  • Red Mercedes SL55 AMG (the red SL500 was replaced with this)
  • Red Lamborghini Murcielago (both Ferrari's were sold in a span of approximately two months to be replaced with this)
  • Red BMW 5 Series

Other cars in the family include:
  • White BMW 5 Series
  • Latest Mercedes SLK

Other cars owned by them (for security personnel):
  • Old Honda City
  • Tata Sumo
  • Esteem
  • Zen
  • and maybe some more

Anyways, for more information on Spiderman, please post in appropriate post and not anywhere else. Wouldn't be nice to go off-topic anywhere, so any further questions see the below topic:

What does Spiderman own?!

Yes, thats right kartikh and if you notice the alloys have a silver finish to it so he has gotten it painted to the black finish recently.
