@DocG: No bro. I don't have those pics. I think you have them all in your cam. Check for them.

I do remember clicking it through my angles.

You and me are definately not on the same page here. The owner stays in south bombay and the entire building belongs to him, exeption being that my uncle has taken the first floor. His uncle has bought another building also in south Bombay, but is temperarily staying elsewhere, till the work is complete. He has many properties all over Bombay and maybe your talking of his uncles cars. The AMG very much stands in South Bombay.

Could you please post pictures of the Rolls or let me know the colour details of it. The sports are news to me, and i doubt they would be personal registered if they are for company purposes, but it is not fair to assume. ince you discuss the registrations of their cars with them i am sure you can get pictures too.

There is some issue with the uploading of GTC speed pictures otherwise i would have loaded them. If you know them so well, strange you dont know about his car of his.

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.
Yes, spotted the Vogue yesterday at Colaba causeway. The MH03 plate got me curious.

Default Re: Big Daddy S-class in Bombay: Mercedes S65 AMG!

Not sure if it was an AMG, but I spotted a matt black W221 S Class. It mostly could be an AMG cos I doubt anyone would paint a normal W221 S500/350 in a matt finish.

Have there been any sightings of this S?

@v12

Ermm.. Slight confusion. I could have sworn i spotted the S you are referring to. It was in Bandra just a week back. But since its mentioned to be an S550, contrary to that, the 1 i saw had a badging of 'S600 AMG' . No my eyes were not playing games with me, I was walking when this car was parked on the side of the road so i could have a good look at it.
It sure was sporting Dubai plates but S600 AMG ?????
Did not know such a car existed.

Saw the Black Brabus beast with Dubai plates at APS 2011 and also saw the S65 big daddy, same car at Bandra yesterday (07-12-11) near Lilavati Hospital.

Both cars are basically the same ie S-Class (but with different engines) but the S 65 AMG's road presence with that shade and those huge AMG wheels is something else compared to the Black Brabus S 550.

In short, one is sporty yet elegant while the other is absolute Gangsta!

I've seen the S63 AMG that belongs to a certain business tycoon at Bandra Kurla Complex on the second day of the AutoCar Performance Show 2011.

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 $
Old post but this one is a must see, for eh, ... fan

This car is seen very often around Matunga, Sion and Dadar areas too. Its an S550/500 with Matte Black options and not an S65 AMG and as such, shouldn't be on this thread.
