that must be the only g55 in India. but i'm not sure if it is a real g55. it looks more like a 500. it doesn't have the wide body wheel arches and exhausts aren't popping out from the sides either. It's a 500.

Agreed, not a G55. Just not AMG enough to cut it.

Definitely not G55, but aren't Dubai reg. vehicles LHD. Unless it is an embassy vehicle, how do they import them ?

After all the poser H2s, nice to see a real off-roader on the list of fresh imports.

Wow...G-wagon...my favorite...but its sure that its not AMG version...those alloys part of special package in normal G-class...anyway its a great all rounder...

it seems like it may be an embassy vehicle or might be an official vehicle from Dubai ruler...cos he has a huge fleet of G-class...has he scheduled a visit to Mumbai?..

Or it might be a shor-time import for 6 months (i'm forgot wat its called)..its like import any car from abroad for a period of not more than 6months & should be taken back...one of my fren's good fren is importing a H3 in that scheme...

Its long since I'm searching for a used one for me...so far not got any...

I've always been a fan of the G-wagen especially in AMG form in Black with tinted windows! Looks absolutely like a Mob Boss's ride!

this car is deffinately not a G55 it is a G500 with the luxury package. there is a similar one in delhi in the same colour saw it last evening. the car seems to belong to the counsulate as it is a LHD and on dubai plates.

Hanmust you are not looking in the right places for the car. there was a 1998/99 G wagon for sale in bombay maroon colour.
it is called CARNET this is when the car is brought into the country for a limited period on a bond.

Dude, I knew about the car, it was 300 turbo Diesel, embassy owned, with air-suspension & was quoting around Rs.17lacs...I bided for my friend, he has an older version which he'll sell if he gets a newer one, that would suite my budget too...

If anyone has got any new G-for sale pls do inform me...

besides the counsulate car there was a G wagon privately owned maroon coloured i think the car had got repainted so i dont remember the exact colour. the guys were asking for 9 at the time. it belonged to the owners of a hotel. i do not like the shape of the G wagon so i did not buy it.

Wow that is gorgeous, The G55 is my absolute dream car. I have been looking for one forever, well a regular G that is.

Saw this black G55 twice, once this past Sunday at shivaji park, the car had a DD number and was driven by a fairly (very lucky) young guy, there was a sikh guy in the passenger seat (very lucky also). Saw a Black G, not sure if it was the same one a few weeks ago at pedder road right across from the kundanmal petrol pump, was driving in the opposite direction both times, so i could not click pictures.
