Spotted this 760Li from Worli. It was escorted by a Police Gypsy & there was a gun-man in the left front seat of the 760Li

The 760 in the first pic with the satalite feed on it has a funny story behind it...The owner rarely uses the car anymore. It was likely to have some employees in it or just the driver driving around.

Owner prefers to travel by chopper these days, and he's got an S-Class with the same treatment in white... [I think that's the same car which I know. But due to blanked plates I'm not 100% sure]

The last 4 digits of the reg are 1000, on the day I saw the car, there were two fat guys on the rear seats.

What do you mean by same treatment on his S-class; do you mean the satalite feed? Is the S also V12 version, I mean S600?

the one that has been lying since a couple of months is a 740li same colour as the one hanmust has posted. theres also another black 740li with 20" rims (i think) which is used a few times a week. its pictures are in the other 7 series thread.

edit - here are the links

Just for info purposes, the MP ** ** 760 discussed in the first page of this thread was a genuine 760iL V12 AfAIK which was a pre-facelift model. Was at the time owned by the same folks who now have the newly arrived white Vantage in Mumbai. Sold quite some time back, and spotted by me outside Royal China a couple of times since. Big difference though, the car is no longer white, it is now silver in colour. No idea why. Plates are the same, interiors are the same.

I doubt the 760 regd was a genuine 760 iL. Check this link for more details :

The car doesnt have the wheels which were standard for the 760.

Spotted today at the Racecourse during the Parx Supercar Parade. The family really does love the Mansory kits!
