Not to forget his old contessa with TV dish on the boot. That was really famous here. First of it's kind.

The pic looks surreal, the Rolls looks isolated from the rest of the world. For a actor of his age, I'd recommend more fast/flashy (Italian!) cars. Does he have any? Not that Rolls doesn't do the job, still.

Hannie, I think, he is currently using a Skoda Superb.

Regarding his sudden leap,this is the story that I heard.

He was planning for a 5ser and he was thinking about it over and over, then one day, he happens to be in Dubai and he spots a sheik driving a massive car named X6. He was so impressed by the car that, once he reached Cochin, he took a TD and made the booking .

Anyway, a great choice and I think since he has the moolah, he should have gone for it earlier.

Dude, this didn't start now. A good friend of both me and hanmust used to be GM of BMW Kochi a while back, as per him, Dilip was contemplating on a X5 from 2008 and took couple of test drives and every time drops the plan just when he is about to make the booking. Glad that this time it turned out well with the X6. Hope he soon gets the delivery and his mind doesn't change before that.

I think he has a Endeavor too with the Superb.

Somehow I feel X6 would have been a perfect choice for Mammukka over the bland TLC.

There is a little more twist in the story before the climax, after the grand success of Twenty-20 movie, he first put a thought of upgrading himself to luxury machine. But when ever he think of investing in an automobile he re-think & the businessman in him pull back him change his decision and made him invest in various businesses, by God's grace he has been successful in it while most of movies were not. As Vishnu said he shown interest in X5, but then he changed his mind, again when he wanted a better machine he put his thought on Jaguar XF, only a few very close people know about it, but some how he settled in X6 at last.

I know he uses an old gen Superb, but recently hes seen most in the re-painted white Innova.

I believe that the X6 was way too captivating for him.

I don't think that he might change his mind this time as he has made the complete payment and is eagerly awaiting the car.

Hannie, even I admire his sharp business focused attitude

Same thoughts here. An X6 would have suited his stylish persona more. But, since he has the habit of changing his cars frequently, lets hope for better wheels next time.

Waiting for the pics
