Probably Vijay Mallya bought it. I believe he is a big fan of good cars. I dont know what collection he has though.

I know he's a fan of good car. But this is an obnoxcious car. Purely my view though. Only offering which I liked is it's sound system.

he prefers ordinary S class's - normally used to travel in two w140 so that no one knew which was the target - now a silver w220 with Rajya Sabha member plastered all over

Another thing is anyone who buys a Maybach in India gets into trouble

AA - family scrap which has opened a wardrobe of clattering skeletons
Mr Manikchand - now a fugitive - if you lie down with dogs, you wake up with fleas !

guys guys are sure its a maybach??
it could also be s class
as it has a similar design as that of the maybach
and you didnt see it properly did you


and BTW Vijay Mallya already has a couple of maybachs abroad

on the newspapers he had said that because the car is too expensive in india he does not intend to buy one here thats it but i believe he already has one

He sent his back to London. He said that it's not suitable for Indian roads. He now uses an S-Class in India and a Maybach 62 in London.

This was what I read a few months back in some article.
