I don't know if Sreeshanth actually has a 540 or is merely posing with it. He normally is seen driving a blinged white Civic very badly!

A very impressive garage i must say. What does he own in India?. Dubai is the place to enjoy these cars and if he were to have the garage in India the numbers would probably 1/3 of his dubai collection. Cost of buying the Cars in Dubai is not expensive when compared to buying them in India. I remember when the Phantom had just been Launched in India, i had taken a trip to Dubai and on inquireing at the Rolls Showroom there found out i could buy a reasonably optioned Phantom + SL500 for the price of a loaded Phantom in India.

It's not imported one, as mentioned by Scorcher, its 530d HL, he might have re badged it. I've seen it once from Calicut & then it was 530d & also was un-regd. he waited for long time for this number.
