Something that just caught my eye now. The pictures of the new AMG C63S show a 'Carl Benz' sticker on the rear windshield. Should it not be 'Karl Benz'? I wonder if that was put up by the showroom people?

Although his name was spelt with a K, his official signature was with a C. Even in the Wiki Page you provided, its Dr. C Benz.

Also, its painted at the manufacturing level, and not a dealer add on.

Is this, by any chance, because of the German to English translation of his name?

News has it that the Maserati showroom is getting ready on M G Road. It's one huge showroom. Right next to the Paresh Lamba store on M G Road

WHOA~ That's great news! That place had been unused for the past 10 years I've seen it (maybe under litigation) Glad to see that it will be open soon. Although, given the traffic at that circle, it is going to be quite the task to manoeuvre vehicles in & out.

Spotted a Maserati GranTurismo in Varthur road today! Was an absolute beauty. Couldn't take any pics since I was riding! I guess it was kind of a Champagne color.

Champagne color is surprising. Was it a new car or registered ? Probably the stock for the showroom is here

Well, not sure about the color at all. It looked somewhere near a Champagne color! Do not remember seeing the number plate up front either. Honestly, I was dumbstruck by seeing it and the only thing registered in my memory are the front grille, those swooping headlamps, single door on the side and those triple air vents!

Car noob question. Is there a Maserati showroom in BLR?

PS: Was driven by a gentleman probably in his mid 40s. Did not look like some showroom guys.

Might as well be the White Maser GT that you saw then. The showroom is coming up on MG Road. Picture posted a few posts before
