the G55 is one of the most beautiful cars ive ever seen.. not in terms of looks alone, but in character.. but such a car is not appreciated by all in India. only the other day i was showing pics of Hannie's Gwagen to my buddies, and they were like, who gets a FORCE in matte black??. its a shame people fail to understand its true potential!!

P.S: didnt mean any offence to hanmust.. i still love your ride!!

Spotted a G55 AMG Brabus around Juhu. Very poor quality picture, Sorry. My autorickshaw was driving as though he was in a G55

Those are Brabus rims for sure .
But it is unclear if it is 'k8 g55' as the Brabus front bumpers are missing .

Caught the beast! G55 //AMG. Had 'illegal' Marathi number plates and was followed by 2 police jeeps! Hence could take just one pic in the mirror

Its a New Addition to the stables of a prominent politician who use to be with SS & is now with the Congress. Lives in Union Park Khar. Man, some day even I would like to be a politician. Car is parked outside his house at night if hes at home. You can get a good look at it.

Spotted the beast again !
Black G55 ///AMG at Linking Road. Was accompanied by 1 cop car and a Jag XJL filled with Private guards, so didn't dare to go more nearer to the car

One word for this car. INSANE. I used to ride in one belonging to a friend. It definitely sounds insane as well. Being a 2.5 ton SUV, one would expect it to be leisurely starting off from a standstill, but hello, it lifts its skirts and sprints. It gives the Gallardos and F430's a definite run for their money. Hell, its quicker than a Hamann X6. That's all I have to say.
