There is no mention in the article of him sending the Maybach to UK?

Guys there are only 2 S600 in Mumbai. 1st being a W220 Black one owned by Anil Ambani. And 2nd one is what Mukesh has got. And it is worth around 2.7 Crores and not 1.75 as being stated in the Papers.

On my flight back from mumbai, I saw the print edition which shows a bewildered Mukesh saying "will I have to send this back also", below the caption was a footnote saying that the Maybach has been sent to the UK due to the bad roads

Dude your information is not correct at all. Please check list price for S600L, it is about 98,500 GBP. Which is about 88 L INR and you add 112.64 % duty is about 1.85 Cr. So the newspapers are pretty right about the pricing.
There is also a blue color W140 S600 in bandra.

S600Benz your right about that BUT you have forgotten the options you can get in this car. I know a friend who bought the S350L and that has costed him 1.62 CR with full options and Octroi paid. The option pages are around 16 pages.

dude,
So what you are trying to say is that a car which costs on road 82L with basic options can cost 1.62 Cr with full options. That is almost double the price just for options. You are mistaken big time man. I will bet any amount on this information of yours being wrong.
Would really like to see your friends car and options list with invoice.

Are you ready to bet any amount on this?? Well I would say you better get your facts right before you commit anything. If you still want proof I think you should call up Sanghi Motors and ask them if they know how much a fully loaded S350L costs with Insurance and Reg.

I doubt that Mr.Ambani's S600 is not the first one in W221 series..I was told on last Aug that some one from Chennai has ordered a fully loaded S600 & it was on its way..I guess it might have already hitted the Chennai road..

There are a lot of W140 series S600 all over India...and a few W220 S600 too..but somany cars are re-badged into S600..for W220 series the tail pipe will be exposed & can u'stand by that..but for W140 U'll have to open up the bonnet to u'stand it..

DUDE,
Forget what Sanghi has to say. Put your money where your mouth is and show me your friends car which has an invoice of 1.62L. I am ready to bet whatever you want on this. Its plain common sense that you cannot have options from the factory that will double the cost of the car. Of course you can go to an after market tuner and spruce it up to quite an extent. So lets see your friends car and I have my money ready when and where you want.
By the way just to give you an idea of where I am coming from and to give an idea about my experience with imported cars, for your information I have sold in the recent past of 3 months:
I have pics of all these cars parked with me in my garage to prove it.

1) AMG SL 55
2) CLS 350
3) Porsche Cayenne Turbo
4) Lexus GS 300
5) Lexus LS 430

Currently in the import pipeline for my clients:
1) Lamborghini Murcielago LP 640
2) Mercedes S 500( with Panaromic Roof, Keyless Go, AMG Package, Rear DVD Entertainment Package)
3) BMW M5
4) BMW 730D
So hope to hear from you soon.
Cheers

Mr. S600Benz,
do u really need to say what you have and what your selling. Why can't it be that someone saying something on the forum be true. The 'friend' bought the car from Sanghi so thats the reason I am saying check up with Sanghi. I know for a fact he would have saved a lot on TR but he wanted from the company and so bought it. I will try and get a copy of the invoice even though for your satisfaction.

Be careful though, your credibility as a dealor will doubted after you are proven wrong.

Nope Extreme,
these are only on American cars or UK Cars. When you buy a CBU from Germany you have to tick the options.
