the S65 AMG was the real M5 killer.
But the M5 can never touch this baby.
the fact that exists in india makes it even cooler

i dont agree with you on that S65 is M5 Killer they are in a different league.
the S65 AMG competes against Alpina B7 ( 500Hp ) and Audi S8 or Audi A8 W12. like that. E63 AMG is M5 Competitor.

cost will be between 1.5 crore to 2 crore. in US it costs more than 150,000 $

Thats there 1Day, but then we would be laughing out at the car and the owner saying "Who is he trying to fool with those fake badges"

Well, i think it looks its best with the pana roof and those optional double spoke wheels. Lovely choice of options. I believe this one is the LWB version which came in later. Thats my favourite number as well! Good to see it on the Indian roads, but sad that most of those 612 horses will be unused. How much does it cost on the road Sahil?

yeah but you dont need to badge it as an S65 or anything, looks is what matters in this case. I highly doubt this would ever see more than 60kmph..
