So I guess this is the Sadhubaba
Someone called Manickchand ? :-)

Manickchand the gutka king. He presented one to his daughter.

Default Encounter With the "Maybach 62"

24/02/08,I would not be able to forget this date even if i try hard to.This was the day i got to see and sit in one of the best car in the world, the "Maybach 62".I genuinely don't know where to start the description from.This car was a part of an event organised at Grand Hyatt.As soon as one sit's in it,you would say,man this is better than a private jet.
If i end up describing the whole car,i would need a day aleast.I have a small video which i would be putting up soon.One of the features i really loved in the car,was the glass partition in between the rear seat and the driver's cabin and the way you can make it go opaque or transparent at the touch of a button, and ofcourse how can i not talk about the glass roof which can be switched between opaque or translucent mode.And finally the best feature i found ot be present was the auto shutting of the door at the press of a button.However after you do it,you realise how necessary it was,because the door is so wide,that it is just not possible to sit inside and grab the door handle if it is fully opened.
I wasn't able to take good pictures of the car as it was totally surrounded by people and the car being so long one really has to go far behind to cover the whole car.
Everythin on and around the car just shouts of class,exclusivity and craftmanship.I could actually see people going weak in their knees just by the sight of the mammoth car.The sight of the car still haunts me in the night.Well all i can say is y'all have to see it to believe it.
-Cheers!!!

The MH12 registered Maybach had made headlines in almost all the local newspapers of Pune some four, five years back. This was a birthday gift from the gutkha king Rasiklal Dhariwal to his daughter, on her eighteenth birthday, and a costliest car then priced around 6 crores

Worst 18th birthday gift, and it was around October 2004.
