Nice pics of the CL there! But this car is one of my least favorite Mercs. The CLS 500 costs about 35 lakhs less than this and is much more sexier and practical than the CL!

Is the Quattroporte also MP registered? I remember the other Maserati GT in Bangalore, the black one which moved to Delhi now, was also MP registered. Didn't know about the Quattroporte though.

I think it is MP registered. I'm not entirely sure though. I don't remember!

It's a gorgeous car though! I've seen it only once. The owner frequents KGA (Karnataka Golf Association) quite often. The Club's parking lot is the best place to spot it!

Yes... this is a bangalore vehicle. RTT - I guess its Ramesh Tours and Travels. These people have many imported cars for hire like Audi, BMC & Merc's.

@punter: I'm guessing Rolls Royce. First I thought it'd be a Bentley, but then the reflection in the RVM makes me think it's a RR!
@JayR: Am i right?
P.S. Sorry I cheated. i saw JayR's post in another thread. Must have been quite a sight. Two Rollers rolling.

yup...it indeed seems that he was travelling in a Rolls Royce. The reflection on the mobile store Phantom can explain it.

@shamikbose - 1 = Rolls , 2 = Rollers , lol.
