Default Spotted: M-Class -- Brabus (pics included)

Hey

Thursday mid-morning, spotted a Brabus M-class (320 or 350), silver in colour. Had an MP 39 reg no. First saw it at the junction of Museum Rd and Church St, in front of the new Empire, and later in front of Hypnos. The only good looking M I've ever seen.

cheers


Viper

The blue colored M Class i guess has a Lorinser kit and not a Brabus kit. Or maybe you are talking about another M Class.

I think there are four

One white m320 - first one ever owned by Ajit Nambiar comes out rareley

One silver ML270 D - the "accounting firm" is actually KJ George - ex minister parked next to 1912

I think there is another silver one somewhre and the blue one that you talked about

My apologies, Iceman. Was driving past it both times, and didn't get to see the badging too well.

Here's one dark green M Class thats got an all-around Brabus kit. This one's a V8 4300cc, 268 bhp M Class. Badged as the Brabus ML430. Confirmed Brabus cos its got the same kit as the Brabus. ML430 cos its got 17-in with 55 profile tyres. This makes it the second ML430 here, the other one being a Lorinser-kitted blue M.
Here's the pic :

The spare wheel kit is a standard equipment on the M Class. Also this one had a DL-regn. So could probably be brought in from Delhi.
