Exclamation SCOOP - Maybach in Tirupur!!!

Just heard from a close friend. One of the exporters in Tirupur ( the -shirt capital of India ) has booked for a maybach. not sure about how much it costs. its for his son-in-law - the guy is 22 and pretty well off himself ( read that as a couple of mercs a cbr among other stuff )

not sure what he is gonna do with that beast. the town has hardly enough space to drive a esteem!!!

Maybach for a youngster = pretty boring guy - unless he neeeds that back seat!

According to BS, the Poonawallahs have booked a Rolls. Maybach sell better here as it has been marketed well!

anyway - remember the curse of the Maybach - if Mr Manikchand does not give himself up, he'll lose a lot more than the Maybach

Not just space... it doesnít even have proper roads. Almost a decade and half ago, they use to sell water in that town like some 10,20 paise per bukcet or some thing like that. Water scarcity!!!

From practically no natural resource, no government support, almost non existent rain, barren lands, and now to this. No harm in those tirpur guys to flaunt their wealth like this. Itís just that they got to make sure that the young generations there not becoming some kind of a spoilt brat.

With quota regime in Europe and else where coming to an end, u can expect more such news in coming years. Its one little town, thatís worth emulating.

BTW sajeeth, where do u live in cbe?

also Aaj Tak did a story on that car when Manikchand bought it & would you belive the girl was sitting on front seat besides driver

the best part of these cars is in the back! unless you are driving on yourself

According to a few friends of mine who study in the same college as she does, she is a big auto enthusiast herself. Who knows, she may also be active on this forum

Damn,
i want to be the son in law.
Pics guys fast.
Wonder if it is the 57 S model.
Manickchand should have bought the 57S for his daughter.
Because she likes driving and drives the maybach quite a bit.
