The Cadillac Deville and the Lincoln Continental (now discontinued) have some of the best rear seats in the world. Infact this is the car the 'Indian richie-rich driver ridden car types' should be looking at !

Driving some of the old models of these cars is a pain. But the newer ones are more pleasurable. The back seats ofcourse are a gem. No other car even comes close.

A caddy is meant for luxury driver comfort is secondary. those amazing 1foot+ rear lights make the caddy standout in a crowd. id love to have a caddy something GM has done neatly, The Towncar next.

Yes, that white one would be mostly imported from Dubai as i had seen the Liberty badging on many GM vehicles there recently.

Anyone has any idea about this car?
The car is lying in Govandi. Pics sent by a friend
In attempt to get proper info on this car, I'm NOT masking the number.

My Two Bits,

Its seems like this was or still is Sanjay Khan's car which was originaly White. Bling was the name of the nightclub which was run by his Son-In-Law.

Around 1999- 2001, he use to use this car most of the time.

That definitely is Sanjay Khan's Deville. Check this link - Autocar : Me & My Car : Sanjay Khan's Cadillac Deville

The car was in its original white shade till around 2007 when I had taken the below pic. Not sure what went wrong and it had to be painted black. Possibly following the old tag line "If its big and black, it is a Cadillac".
