Even with a price tag of Rs 2.43 crore, the Mercedes-Maybach GLS600 is selling like hotcakes and there is a rush to get this vehicle among the celebrities. Arjun Kapoor got his Maybach GLS600 earlier this year in a beautiful blue shade after Ranveer Singh made the same choice. The new GLS600 has become Arjun’s favorite car and he is often spotted with the vehicle.
This video from CS12 Vlogs shows his GLS600 on the Mumbai roads. The video shows the ultra-luxurious GLS600 roaming around on the roads without any security car. While we are not sure about the car’s cabin, we can safely assume that this is the four-seater version with two captain seats in the rear.
