Big V8 BMW X5 Hamann. 4.4 litre. Colour was a bit questionable though, IMO. quoting Bruno, "it's soo 2008 !"

Dude, isn't the entry to Dr.Mallya's house next to UB City.

I saw his Merc S600 on last Thursday when I was in B'lore. I was at The Collection Mall with my family & my daughter was playing in the fountain at the roof top. When I looked at the UB Group's corporate office building I saw Force India's F1 car on the lobby & then biege S600 out side the building.

Then I alone went to that building & met the receptionist & asked him whether I can have a close look of F1 & S600. He then called-up a security officer who asked my where abouts, I gave him my visiting card & told that I'm also a auto journalist. Then he told he can give permision to see the F1, but to see Dr.VM's personal car I have to meet his gun-man. He took me to a tall well build guy whos his chief gun-man & asked almost same question. Then after repeating the same answers he took me near to the S600 & also called his driver to explain more. They where too good at heart that they showed me the interior & also spend more than 15 minutes sharing their experiance in the S600 as well as working in UB Group. They are so proud of their boss. But due to security reason he didn't allowed me to snap both the S600 & F1.

Driver told, now Dr.VM use this S600 most of the time when he is in the city. He is quite happy with the performace & comfort. But driver told so far he couldn't stretch the car to its limits due to the traffic & road condition of B'lore city. He told its the only S600 in Karnataka.

That's a really nice account of the event Hanmust. Most of these gunmen and guards are nice guys actually. Especially to ppl who show more interest to the car, than their boss. The same happened with me, with a certain black phantom/green bentley person.

P.S. - You lucky guy ! Got to experience Mallya's personal car, though the rest of us only got to click pics !

just as i expected. I knew you would come back with the pictures immediately. Thats the same car. Man !!you really amaze me. Maybe we should start a thread with Imported cars in bangalore which manish hasnt photographed yet. The thread I suppose will be one with very minimal posts.
