TheStig Yup the GL500 is available in India now. 85 lakhs OTR I think.. :) 25th September 2011
rosh_aveo1.4 Now that is one amazing looking GL. Black with AMG wheels..amazing! I think they have the GL500 here. 24th September 2011
TheStig Hi Sahil, thanks for the comments :)
No the previous generation E55 (W211) had a 5.4L supercharged V8 with 469 BHP on tap. Here the engine is the same one that does duty on the current W221 S Class, W212 E500 saloon, ML 500 etc.. It is a naturally aspirated unit.

And yes the Pirelli's offer phenomenal amounts of grip too. The handling is decent and body roll is well controlled once the suspension is set to 'Sport' mode :D

Sahil It hits the ton in 6.5 secs ! Impressive for a car that BIG !
Does it have the previous gen E55 AMG engine?
Gotta love those alloys shod with super wide rubber, bet the handling is killer for a car of it's size too.

the VTEC guy First I though who has a GL500 in India. Then I see Dubai. Thats perfect. Very intimidating. Have you taken it to drive in sand dunes? 29th October 2010
TheStig Yup I have to agree! Fuel bills?? What fuel bills?!? Bah!
From my calculations fuel is cheaper than drinking water in Dubai! :D
