I am sure the company would make RHD versions too based on order.

You do get conversion kits and the Bombay H1 is a RHD.

That's what. There's an RHD H1 in Mumbai despite the car being offered in LHD only.

Spotted this by the Gateway of India in Mumbai. Spotted 'Hon CC of Guyana' right below the number.

Apparently the G 63 6X6 is in Bombay and does not belong to the person assumed to be the owner by our fellow Bhpians.

Perhaps this is another one that made it's way before the one I had mentioned. I was told the car was yet on order.

Anyone got pics of the G63 6x6 that's in Bombay already? Is it on Dubai plates? Would be a treat to see it on our roads next to a rickshaw

Was browsing through some images on NDTV and came across this one of Bollywood actor Arjan Bajwa.

Is the car in background a G wagon?

I dont know if its his car or the car is just parked there.

I had a word with the person you say…and he informed, that he was considering but not finalised yet as his other cars need his attention.

I have not seen this car yet, but a friend has and informed me about it. He actually thought the owner had gone and modified the G Wagon.

Modified the G Wagen and put two extra wheels on it?

Jokes apart, even I have been hearing about this G Wag. Its silver apparently. Lets wait for some pics to surface.

There are at least 7 cars (guess based on photos seen on the net) delivered including the BRABUS one. The link below says that 20-30 are gonna be produced annually.

There are clearly more than 7 , as there are around 4-5 in the UAE itself. 2 TD vehicles 1 White and the other one as pictured above , 1 Black for for the Crown Prince of Dubai (F 3) , 1 for the family with 2 Aston One-77's , Plus one registered in Kuwait too. Also , the Abu Dhabi MB showroom has a G63 6x6 in a Dark Shade which i saw while they were taking delivery.

Default Re: Mercedes G-Wagens spotted in Mumbai

I've seen a Black G55 recently in Saket (New Delhi) and the young lad driving it was flooring it from each green light to the next red light. I rolled down the window and thoroughly enjoyed the eargasm. I've spotted him at least 3-4 times over the last 2 years.

I've seen the same guy drive an Orange Lambo near Lodhi Road a couple of times. Though this thread is for G-wagens in Mumbai but I couldn't resist from posting it here because a G-55 is one hell of an SUV to sight. What wouldn't I give away to possess this!!

However, as gorgeous as a G-55/63 4x4 is, its 6x6 sibling is equally awkward to look at, especially at a price 3 times that of a G63. It might be a great off-roader and all but a Ford/Chevy pick-up looks butcher & better.

EDIT: The axle setup that a G63 6x6 uses, isn't it the same that Unimogs have? Do the G55/G63 4x4 also have the same setup?
