Excellent garage! Surprisingly don't see any performance Mercs. How about a AMG SL65 roadster or a ML63 in may be black edition? Or how about a McLaren SLR?

No , either the RR Sport with the 5.0 S/C V8 or the X5 4.8/X5 M!

Btw, my BMW M3 will be out of action for a good 2-3 weeks . I am getting the ECU re-flashed by AA in the US , getting X pipes and HFC's from fabspeed and getting my LSD from Dinan with a final drive of 3.62 !
So by the end of these mods , I will be pushing north of 490 bhp and ~380- 400 ft/pounds of torque! A complete monster that will beat the pants of our Audi R8 and the fastest M3 in India!

was trying to sum up the cost for this garage. I could manage to calculate somewhere around 11 crore Rs.
No more words.

Has your brother planned anything for the R8 to compliment your M3

Audi Q7.
Something known as the Q7 V12 TDi.

Common-rail technology, 6.0 litres, 368 kW (500 bhp). 1,000 Nm of torque between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm, taking you from 0 to 100 in only 5.5 seconds.

Isn't that enticing enough?

Actually there are a few Merc's that do tempt me , but till now I have not had the best experience with the dealership in my city , so I tend to stay away from the brand .

I love the SLR ! Had it been made in RHD , you would see the 722 in our garage now!

Visual and audio updates will come after 2 weeks , as I am shipping my ECU and LSD to the US for tuning and also getting X pipes and HFC's!
