spotted the silver sls parked at Shaman Motors Mercedes Showroom today, seems it was the same one which was showcased at the Autocar Performance show. So now the count is what? three? silver, red and now white? seems us Indian's really love the gullwing. Sadly No SLR's yet in India.. :(

Oh wow the white SLS looks awesome. I started loving the car's rear more than the front. Simply love it.
SLR's came only in left hand drive and the rear of the 2 cars look so similar.

Nice pic Guess! Seems like GS is having a lot of fun with the 458! He is actually using it as a daily commute And is the owner of the red SLS gonna drive it to GJ? If I were him, I probably would have

Thats an awesome snap Guess ! The 458 has been spotted by many people now ! Its good that the owner isn't like the many people who like to keep it locked in a garage . Hats off to GS !
The red SLS sure does look nice ! RED HOT !

@Guess?: Amazing snap. Lovely cars and if those two were to go on full chat, quite a few people would go deaf, I'm sure. But what a way to go deaf! @hanmust: Blue looks lovely on the SLS. The interiors look very plain though.

It really is a wonderful photograph, this. It illustrates the difference between ordinary cars and the 458/SLS. For example, just look at the Octavia in the right lane right next to the SLS. The cockpit of the SLS is aligned to the rear-seats of the Octavia!

And yes, the soundtrack would be something you'd kill to hear. A screaming Ferrari V8 and the growling 'n' rumbling SLS's V8. A combination of sounds that would render most people deaf!

Looks like the SLS is getting popular. And why wouldn't it! I seriously hope this is heading to Bangalore, and judging by the dark/navy blue exterior, it isn't too hard to guess who's it might be, if it does come to Bangalore that is!

And Shamik, I quite like the light-beige/cream interiors of this SLS AMG. Looks good with the blue IMO. It would have been even more dull had it been completely black, I presume.

I'd have preferred it if the interiors were a dull shade of tan. With red stitching. But then, who am I to choose? And kudos to the owner on the choice of exterior color.

This picture is taken at the entrance to the commercial building at Mercedes Benz factory at Chakan.

Seen all the cars that have come to bombay. She looks best in white, like all cars do IMO.

Imagine driving up to a party in these beauties, revving the glorious engines and the look on everyone's face as the DJ shut the music down. Brilliant, brilliant cars there. Thanks to all the spotters for such lovely images.

spotted a red sls on a flatbed tow truck going towards Shaman Motors Merc Showroom tonight at 8pm, this one was unregistered and was not that clean, also surprisingly its rear spoiler was up while the car was on the flatbed.
