I think you read wrong thats 3.5 cr and not 35, roshans didnt make 100 cr for the movie, the movie made that much money...but surely roshans as a whole might have made quite a handful from that 100 crs.

All the actors you named if could would have bought the phantom, it takes a lot more, we think it doesnt, buying a 7 and a 6 only puts him at around 45% the cost, anyhow there is a lot of money for the stars to be made in the coming years and we will see some nice cars down the line but currently it is due to a lot of black money involved in payouts..

Last year Amitabh Bachchan;s Income was reported at Rs 200 crore .. same as Sachin Tendulkar's. SO they can easily buy any of these machines.

Believe me I have seen Mercs and Even sat inside a Maybach at the autoexpo, But this machine has really got street presence ,I mean just the wheels and the whole look of it make it look royal and the Maybach look like an overgrown S-class.

car crazy 1400 me too have sat in a Maybach many times and once in the RR Phantom at Brussels , The Maybach has got presence with more elegance than the RR Phantom .The RR is too much square , lacks of finess espacially the front , the previous RR which was the Silver Seraph was better looking.

No RR Phantom can reach 300 km/h as I know but the Maybach can do it if you remove the speedlimiter

Abdul like the said before Looks are a very subjective perception what you might like may not be liked by me and vice-versa. Car crazy thinks the Phantom has the best road presence & that's his opinion nothing wrong about it. You think the Maybach is better & there's nothing wrong about that too. Personally I prefer the Phantom but know of many friends who think the Mayback is better.

And about reaching 300 km/h why would you want a Maybach to go that speed? Why not buy a McMerc SLR/Carrera GT/Ferrari 599 etc. The puprose of these cars is not to go the fastest but to waft it's passengers in supreme comfort. They are not machines designed to do record-breaking speeds.

iraghava youy are right but it is exclusive to enjoy luxury interior at 300 km/h , you can even massage and be fully laying and sleeping.Everybody has got his own point of view

I wouldnt agree with abdul but i wouldnt disagree too, I think the new one tone 62S and the 57S look awesome..just plain gorgeous, so does a Phantom, but the maybach will blow the phantom away in luxury and comfort and I can tell you this from an experience of another member in his RR. a long haul trip and his back was hurting and his @$$ was hurting..

anyhow, If it were upto me I would be honored to own either, just get me any plz..I would probably pick a maybach before the phantom just because of luxury and then get the RR the year after since..with that much dough it wouldnt be too difficult to maintain both..
