Yes it is. Given a choice between those 3 cars standing there, I'll take the gray one any day!

I saw Gautam Menon on a Q8 en route on Bangalore from Chennai. Beige in color and the SUV is a monsta!

Could not take snaps as I was at the wheel. But he was slithering in and out of the traffic near Nokia Factory.

Cool Car and he was driving it himself.

Next time will take some snaps.

The gray beemer is never used. It is always parked under that tree and so is his E-Class. Btw his SLK is only used for vege shopping.

Sweet! But AFAIK Menon has a black Audi Q7. It can even be seen in the movie VTV!

Maybe he has two

@nick: Nice pics. I too spotted that SLK today. Is it an AMG kit? I'm asking because even the tailpipes had AMG written on them. It sounded really nice though . Also spotted the Cayenne GTS in front of the Merc showroom today.

That's a horrible looking SLK! And it hasn't been cared for either! It looks like he was driving it like it's a cheap hatch-back or something! What on earth is that ugly red-piping all over it?

Actually I quite like that SLK350, except for the AMG badge and the nicks / dents. I've always liked the SLK's compact dimensions even though people call it a bit girly. Wouldn't mind a power-packed SLK55 AMG sliding about everywhere.
