That black paint - red interior combo oozes sex-appeal! I'm a sucker for that spec.

Do we have pictures taken at the Mercedes Stardrive event?

I swear, same here.

Sadly this time none of the AMG's made it in time for the Stardrive event.
The trailer carrying them was stuck in another state due to terrible weather, heavy rainfall and massive floods everywhere. They are expected to reach Calcutta in a few days and will be on display at the dealer for a week.
I shall post some pictures as soon as I receive them.

Yes it was pretty dry. Also, unlike the Audi Q drive, the SUV (GL Class) and the sedan (E250) were driven by their own drivers. The safety demo on the E was pretty good though, ABS, PreSafe et al.

@Cityvic: Do treat us with the pics as soon as you lay hands on them. And thanks for the 348 pics

Are the cars being serviced at a workshop in Kolkata or were they trucked to the Delhi service centre?

The Ferrari owners of the city get together and fly the Ferrari Mechanics in from Singapore or Dubai.
The cars then worked upon together.

Any links to the ad of the 640d?
Here is a link I found about the 640d in Carwale. Rs. 91 lacs being asked for the same.

Also, AFAIK this was a fairly new car. What would have been the price of this car when new ? Isn't selling a fairly new high end car entail a huge depreciation hit ?

Regards

PapaBravo this car was purchased at the prebudget pricing.
So must be 95L-1cr.

God knows what this particular new collector in the city does. His grey DL reg Bentley CGT Speed is on sale too. Prior to this he kept the maroon 911 for a few months too. His Jaguar XKR-S got pulled away by the bank a few minths back after he failed to pay the emi's. I guess these are all planned tactics. Best for me to stay out of it by not commenting on it. He had the Blue Audi RS5 for very few months too.
Currently he also has a white cayenne and a blue cooper cabriolet.
