This is the very same car which ferried Shah Rukh Khan, and standing on top of which, he greeted the crowd just a few days back at the inauguration of their new showroom at Cochin.

A video of SRK dancing for the crowd on top of this very S class.

The cars for the occasion were provided by the Mercedes dealer. This car was not bought by the textile guys as on that day AFAIK. A look at the plates might give u a better idea.

Ow, thanks. In fact, I did spot the difference in the plates.

So was said in the Facebook page of Exotics in Kerala that this one belongs to the textile guys. Mea Culpa!

Wow what's happening to all the Mercs in India? We have a whole thread dedicated to a rather sensitive Merc-related accident, and we have two S-Classes (assuming the picture above is that of a S - it's just very hard to figure out of it's a S, it could even be a C) on this page itself!

Thats an E350/350 CDI Avantgarde.
If you closely look at the bumper placed on the car, the avantgarde models have a very different front bumper than the elegance variants.
And then if you look at the left side broken headlamp cluster, you can see two distinct headlamp skeletons like that of the new E!

MAN!! The RR almost got toppled by the ALTO. I hope the lady gets justice here. But these things are so common --police doing whatever they can to protect the high profile. Just pisses me off.

Note from the Team-BHP Support Team: Please avoid quoting video's in a reply post as it inconveniences our mobile and small screen users. Thanks!

Thats such a sorry sight. I have seen this particular car last year in Delhi. Attaching some pics of this Bentley GTC when it was pretty young and in the pink of its health.

Mods: Not blanking out the registration plates as it was a public event.

Happened on the 25th during the Cannon Ball Supercar Track day at the Buddh International Circuit, I have heard the Car went straight into the barrier And I beg to differ its not a Speed, its the normal GTC.

^ Autopsyche had a video of the crash, though i think hes taken it offline now.

He was in his 370z and the Bentley flew past him on the inside as they approached a right hander -- the rest we can see here.
