Though you have a perfect reasoning, but again why a taxi operater will take the pain of converting a 320 or 350 to a 500? It could be a privately used vehicle which might be originally imported under EPCG to evade duty and taxes. I am not very sure about this theory of mine.

Converting a 320cdi into 500 ? where are you getting this weird ideas ? It can just be a badge swap buddy.

If thats what you meant, Why not ? Don't you see auto-rickshaws and taxis with every possible mods and a hard hitting boom box ? What is the purpose ? Simply showing it off !

The F430 spotted at the Supercar Show had a Hoshiarpur registration, not a Chandigarh one. So the F430 you have spotted is a different one.

Then it would be an original S500; might be owned by some star hotel.

That S-class is going to have to go so close to the ditch. But its looks pretty damn good, even in that environment.

Yes the drive asked a nearby security gaurd to guide him so that he could make sure that tyre is not close to that ditch.

Which place is this? Seems to be the Barakhamba Road crossing towards CP where underground metro construction is going on and hence the ditches probably.

Quite possible, my point just was that, it is quite impractical to buy a Glutton Petrol car as a cab.

That is one of the cleanest H2's I've seen on Indian terrain. Nice find mate

Look at the sheer size of the gas-guzzler, it dwarfs the CR-V in comparison

The CRV looks like a station wagon in front of the H2. It looks puny!
