You are right. It's not the 'S'.

Confirmed it is a BMW for sure the wheels say it all. The size looks to be of the 5 and so has theragingbull stated that there were the Audi, lexus and bmw there in the background. I was going to mistake it for the new accord .

@ Ishotmydog it is a GT and not a GTS

Also check out the Lexus LX470, Audi Q7 and the BMW 5-series in the background. So that's multiple imported cars at one spot
With all these cars around the same place, it points to a big party at Mannat

Not nesicarily my friend. These cars are seen all over. Lexus,Q7 and 5 series are common. you dont have to be a famous person to own one these days. There is a Barista or a Coffee day just where these cars are standing on Bandstand. Mannat is on the back side of this road .

The bimmer in the background is a 3-Series. Look at the crease down the sides, the wheels and the mirrors.

+1 to this baseless debate

It is a 3 series as per the 16inch alloy design and the rounded rear view mirrors which are different from the 5 series.

Cool i think the interiors are fantastic blue and red combines sports as well as class...f

Its amazing, few people would understand that red and blue gives a combination of sportiness as well as class. So relax guys, its a bit of ferrari and maserati put together.

such an expensive car and what a tacky choice of interiors! The red wheel is hilarious

but the exterior looks awesome! Thanks for sharing, dude.

'A bit of Ferrari & Maserati put together', interesting, not. There is no comparison between the two even tho the engines are the same.

A Maserati in its lifetime cannot match the class, stance, heritage of a Ferarri, period.

As for the interior on your car Avneesh, it was your choice hence there is no need to justify the reason behind it to other people. It cannot be 'amazing' to everyone just because you think it is.

However, Congrats on the car.

Just my 2 paise.

No personal offence intended but my personal unbiased opinion is Ferraris are sporty and Maseratis are sporty yet classy. The best drivers cars for daily practical usage yet good to unleash the wild driver within. As far the interiors go, its the wrong colour correction in the photos, but otherwise it blends well uniformly throughout. In flesh the scarlet electric blue and off white theme (inspired from the American flag) uniformly extend to all parts of the car, giving it a blend suitable for all occasions: office, work, gym, club, lounge, wedding, funeral, party, birthday, joyride, race track, racing etc. Its curvaceous moves and roaring exhaust add to the universal appeal. The scarlet, steering centre, seat stitching and piping, looks very different in real and matches to the glossy red trimming and the external brake/indicator lights and callipers and this tri-colour blend reaches all parts of this trident, including under the hood in the engine bay for the cylinder head cover of the engine. The Blue alcantara on the steering rim, seat centres, headlining and carpet are an extension to the exterior. Anybody witnessed the Jacob & Co watches? Bling Bling! Do see this multi million dollar world acclaimed "tasteful" masterpiece Name:  M_175_jacob.jpg

Blue flame is hotter than an orange flame (subtle sportiness) , Red signifies passion and cream is for luxury. Dark chrome for trim garnish, wheel rims & the grilles is for aggressive luxurious "knight"hood.
The unique vivid contrast grows on you over time and becomes less boring over a long period of ownership keeping the car looking fresh even after a long span of repeated viewing on a daily basis. Also different colours inspire different emotions. Keeping in mind the driving environment, nature and personality of the user the colours are chosen to invigorate the right emotions in the right ratio and subdue the dangerous and risky ones. A master piece of art invoked criticism initially but later on transcend you into deep thought as you decode the encoded importance and language of thoughts it enlightens which are hidden deep in it. Glad to know someone has dared to try something unconventionally unique and different that suits self and not merely for the pleasure of spectators though. Personal belongings are to be an extension of ones personality, preferences and likes and beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and is wrong to be judgemental without knowing the thought and effort for being unique and not part of the herd, that has gone into manifesting it.
Also before the next time anybody compares a Maserati with a Ferrari do check out the global reviews that the plain Granturismo has earned even before the launch of the S MC sports line version. If the plain 4.2 Granturismo could speak so much for its owners, you can imagine what a S would speak how much volumes about its owners. Do check out the following video
It shows the current state of affairs of the Maserati brand standing on a global platform.
Would love to hear from the owner, a detailed review about his hot wheels.
