I'm guessing they are the Trivandrum based Bhīma Jewelry group.

Even i felt the same seeing the "by standers". But the statement " Shares garage with a Series II Ghost, a Gen I Flying Spur" made me confused.

Why? It's no secret they own those.

They're mostly parked right up front their flagship store near Overbridge, all sporting their signature '777' plate.

The same garage has this too. India's first Lexus LX570.

Is it in TVM or Cochin? Asking this because I keep seeing a LX570 here in Panampilly almost daily (it's been few months now).

I know. That's a different white LX570 in Kochi. This one is in TVM.

And judging by the front grille, it appears to be the limited edition LX570 Signature variant. That must have been one expensive Lexus.

Or is it an S/ Supersport body kit that is available for the LX?

I was under the impression they were the same thing depending on which market you looked at (Signature in the Middle East). But you may be right, looking back at the photo those rims are smaller than the 'Limited Edition' Signature variant.

Those wheels are standard 18 inch wheels.

TRD, Modellista and similar bodykits are popular with many LC 200 owners, so it is quite possible that LX owners too are open to customization with such kits.

Anyway, that grille looks way better than the standard LX grille, and the car is a real stunner.

Congratulations to the owner for his fine taste, and what a wonderful ride it would be with all that leather and Japanese woodwork inside and a big V8 petrol motor up in the front! Money really well spent.

Oh sorry my bad, I was unaware of those rides. I used to see the man in the above pic in a Beetle only, so now you get a picture how updated I am.

I am not sure if it is different for India,because the 'S' =Signature variant consists of the below from factory:
Front and Rear body kit
Black finished rear view mirrors
side strips in black
Dark Rose (Signature Leather seats)
Signature floor mats
Aluminum insert pedals
's' monogram at rear
Prayer mat (maybe Middle East specific)

21' rims were standard between the platinum,and signature.
21' rims are different in the Signature Black Sequence
