Y did he buy an SL500, he should have looked at the AMG class instead. The SL500 is a waste man.

someone on the forum had said that he doesn't own the arnage & just that he was invited launch & given a test drive of the car....also there were talks that amar singh gifted him the car...i think ur bro only said that its all false... so whats the truth !

No RJ that was me. Well what I said is Part Right and Part Wrong. The thing is that the Maroon was not his Car BUT he has oredered 1 through Upaj Motors and his is yet to arrive. I came to know today through a Good Source that he has ordered 1. He has quite a Facination with the Colour White though. From what I have heard his Arnage, SL, 645Ci & his Range Rover alll are WHITE

Funny thing, If I had a similar budget to splurge on cars, there is not one single machine that I would pick out of this list. I hate British cars, the Indian SL 500 is not enough BHP for the money, Chris Bangle gets my thumbs down, the S Class is much superior to the Arnage, Phantom? No ways...and these lexus SUV's are just too soft to be considered what their classification may lead you to believe.

phew, if i had so many greenbacks to splash the only car i would pick from his list was the 645Ci. but im sure he has found enough roads to put the GT to really good use. don't get me wrong, i know he has the money and has the right to do what he likes, but many more expensive cars out there which maybe he could have done better with, even though he only might troddle at 35kmph.

One man's pininfarina is another man's bangle!

Plus i would be willing to bet my life that GTOs driving style and automotive requirements are a bit different from big B's.
