What is it doing there in the Gir, a G55 AMG or ML63 AMG suits the location better. Anyway nice spotting. Is it a customer car?

Gir isn't very far from the place where a member of the royal family had bought a CLS63 last year. If my memory serves me right, it was bought from a dealer in Mumbai (Autohangar?) and a Tbhp member that works for the dealer had posted pictures. Could it be the same car?

No, Gir is in Gujarat near Junagarh.
A visit in December 2005, I saw some imported machinery that included BMW 7-series.

Wow, that makes me really sad to think that they probably have better roads even in the Gujarat forests than we have in Maharashtra.
