If you have spotted it from Mumbai, then mostly likely it would be his car only! Even then couple of tips to confirm its his car; was it black-brown coloured & was it having PY-01 * 9999 regn plate?

Thats why i said probably Dipen. The north India one is not seen on the roads atall or rather not been posted by anyone again so no clue on that one.
The Pune car went under the scanner and was returned to the factory. M.A. car was sent back to the U.K.
Out of the four known cars in India only one is seen on the roads now.

Due to being awestruck, and since I could not stall my car for too long, I failed to notice the registration number, but it was of an overall gold / Beige colour. Not chocolate brown. But, the chauffeur who was driving me, mentioned that he had seen the same car at Hyatt, come for a conference the day earlier and VM stepped out of it.

When it comes to road presence, RR wins by miles.

The Maybach looks pretty plain jane in comparison.
Good pics though.

Found a pic of a Maybach 62. I think this is the one which was gifted to a 'Human God' by one of his followers.

I guess this is Manikchand's Maybach based in Pune.

Yes, that S-Class belonged to him at one point of time. Don't know if it still does.

Because that is what it is, mate. That too not the new one, itís a glorified W220 S class.

Similarly, for me, no matter what people get into their head, the Ghost too is never a proper bespoke Roller, it is a glorified 7 series.
