That was not an accident. There were some parts for the Brakes which was ordered from US which was supposed to arrive but a bit late.

Its owned by a company in Technopark.

Some more pictures:

Makes sense, from the airport to technopark is pretty much a straight stretch. they wouldn't dare to bring it inside the city.

Its a 1997 model registered in 1999. Belongs to an individual, not a company

Amjat..you are partially correct....it belongs to a wonderful humanbeing Mr.G A Menon who owns a company in Technopark in Trivandrum. He is no more. He was the chairman of 14 companies worldwide and was settled in Silicon Valley. Now the company takes care of it.

The limo was used especially for client visits of the company.
Its a LHD. You should see the gadgets inside to believe it. Almost everything is monitored inside the car. Even an automatic message is sent ot the company in case of any malfuntion, but the technology is not available in India.

And i am working in that company and have been with this company for almost 5 1/2 years now.

Govigov....this car runs inside the city too. You wouldnt believe the expertise of the chauffer of the limo who is from Trivandrum. He drives as if its an usual sedan for him. The place its parked is near my home just about half a kilometer.

I do have pictures of the interiors..couldnot find it...will post once i get that. Stunning interiors.
