completely. Thats the first thing came to my mind after seeing this car. It has absolutely no presence.

I saw the S600 of Mallya in ITC Gardenia tonight. And I actually SAW Mr. Mallya in the bar having a drink with Pietersen and Boucher!

The car is magnificent! 19" alloys running 255/55 R19 in the front and 275/55 R19 at the back. ContiSportContact3 tyres.

Spotted an old Volvo. Don't even know what car it is. Notice the headlamp wipers. It felt weird.

I think a dealer in Delhi( was it kashyap motors?) used to sell the S80 a few years back.

agree with you
it certainly looks infinitely more stylish and desirable in the ad than in reality!

Yes this is the same place. I am seeing this for last 3-4 days in the same place. Wonder who did this to a beauty like that.

this is the same car I think as earlier shown on this thread. I just spotted it. KA 51 reg. lovely 245 size tyres on 18 inch wheels. interiors and all the jazzy instrumentation etc looks really lovely too.

else, the car is pretty ugly truth be told.

one somehow doesnt get a sense of the real greats in the Grand Tourer segment with this Beemer when seen in the flesh.

or it may be that it would look better in a rich colour rather than plain boring white.

the gt is kind of unappealing to me. it looks like a mix-up of different series! what was bmw thinking when it made this one?
