Hi Shankar, I think I saw the same Hummer yesterday (it was a black colored one) at Koramangala, parked near JNC. What struck me was that the vehicle had unusual tyres, with hardly any space for air ! Is it running on "Run flat" tyres, I wonder.

Run-Flat tyres are actually tyres that are designed to resist the effects of deflation when punctured. This helps the car travel further distances despite a puncture. The Hummer that you saw was probably running on run-flat tyres, but that isn't the term to use while describing the profile/aspect-ratio of the tyre!

@ Latheesh: Rolls Royce or Range Rover?

I saw the Yellow Hummer H2 near Marathalli Bridge last evening around 4:30pm. Looks huge, but was driving so slowly holding the entire traffic up and creating a large pile-up of vehicles trying to pass him.

There are no Maybachs in B'lore. The three in india are the Manikchand car, the one belonging to a spiritual leader, and Mallya's car (which was Maybach's demo car in india previously). This is according to some very reliable sources. And about the Phantom, there are 3, + 1 on carnet. The other is in Bellary.

Is Mallya's Maybach in Mumbai? I dont think its been captured by any BHPian.
