Oh both these are different cars, that means there is two S65s in Mumbai. I really love & is my most favorite luxury sedan variant! Great finds!

Hope you saw a MH03 gypsy filled with bodyguards in the tow. It commands attention. Used to see it often in my ex-college.

It is the same car having the single digit registration. There are 2 S65s in Mumbai, but 1 Black and 1 White.

Thats one beauty. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Is the wheelbase same as in standard S class? This somehow looks even lengthier.

I had posted pictures of that car before. It had the worst wheels i had seen on an AMG. will try and dig it out again.


@ gemballa - the older generation like your W211 and the W220 only had the S55 AMG's. The W221 has the S63 and S65 AMG. I prefer your E55 shape to the current one.

This is the one you had posted Speedy. But this is an S 63 not an S 65. Is this the black one your talking about.

I thought i posted of the 65 but i guess it was the 63 i posted. Will dig my pictures to find it. No Dan this 63 is different car from the 65. One belongs to a politician and the other a builder. The politition now also owns a 760li.

Buddy, I think the S65 you mention might be the one earlier used as demo car by MBIL. The same one was there in my profile photos for quite a long time.

I don't think he has the GTC. That belongs to one of his friends as far as I've heard. He has a ton of other cars at his place of residence too (Not in India). The Cayenne is technically registered to the company now, as are their old 7s. They also have multiple Range Sports.

Has the Gallardo been sold yet? The price asked was ludicrous, but somehow he didn't bother, he has the 560-4 abroad. Also you're missing the most important addition to their Indian stable, the Rolls they added last year. Who said there was a recession in 2009!

Bro do you still have the pics of the S65 you clicked at my house?

PS: I just perused the whole thread, and the prices doing the rounds are ridiculous! The car cost 2.7cr and was a B'day gift. Sadly chauffeurs are having all the fun these days!

PPS: I remember having seen a white S63 outside one of the pubs off of Colaba Causeway. It was at least 3 years ago, The socialite Queenie Dhodi exited along with a guy and another couple, recognized her from the papers...

Ya, but what I said is, the black demo S65 of MBIL was sold to a customer who need the car so urgent & he was ready to compromise that its demo after his personal inspection. It was sold for a discount!

Its is the same car Hani has mentioned, it was the demo car bought by a politician. The blue one if i remember right was badged AMG with multi spoke wheels unless we are talking of two different cars.

You are not paying attention my friend. I did not mention GTC alone, i mentioned GTC SPEED. The GTC is R.R.'s car white with maroon top. This is dark blue with dark blue top.
I dont think it would be tons of other cars abroad but a few. Most of his cars are company registered and the old 7's are sold ages ago. They do not own a single Range rover sport but as i mentioned two Range Rover Vogues.

The Gallardo spyder was sold a little over a year ago and has also changed two hands since. It went to Bangalore and now is in Hyderabad as far as i have heard. He does not own a Lp 560-4 abroad. He has a f430,SLR and the pagani Zonda in the Supercars section. I have not seen or heard of him buying the ROlls. My cousin stays in the same building.

No offense but I stay in the same building as the heir of this business family. As you must be knowing he has moved out of the family home, and keeps his own penthouse in the burbs of Mumbai. We also happen to be family friends...

He has many more cars abroad as well. The Rolls is not parked at their house, but at one of their offices in the suburbs. It very much exists. And so do the multiple Range Rover sports. (With regard to the RR Sports, they are used for the company, but many of them are personal registrations.)
