Shahrukh Khan’s Mercedes-Benz S-Class spotted on a flat bed truck: Did it break down? [Video]

Shahrukh has an impressive collection of cars including the latest-generation Mercedes-Benz S-Class. A clip of the same Mercedes-Benz S-Class getting into a flatbed has become viral. While many believe that the car broke down, many others think that it is being towed to the service centre.

The clip of the car getting towed into the flatbed is posted by Viral Bhayani. It shows the luxury sedan getting into the flatbed of the truck. We are not sure if the vehicle is turned on. We can spot someone in the driver’s seat guiding the car safely but there is a winch that is pulling the vehicle. It is highly likely that the vehicle did not start and had to be towed.

In many cases, service centres also tow the vehicles to the service station for general maintenance and servicing. While the service centres send drivers to pick up the vehicles, in many cases when the service centre is not near or the car is in a critical condition, they use towing services. We are not sure what exactly lead to the towing of Shahrukh Khan’s Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Shahrukh Khan sold BMW 7-Series for S-Class

The actor upgraded to the new S-Class after selling his BMW 7-Series. He got the white-coloured S 350d 4MATIC that costs around Rs 1.8 crore, on-road.

The S 350d comes powered by a six-cylinder 3.0-litre diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 285 PS and peak torque of 600 Nm. It gets an automatic transmission and can do a top speed of 250 km/h. The S 350d is a quick car and can do 0-100 km/h in just 6.4 seconds.

Shahrukh Khan has a very interesting garage that includes luxury saloons and SUVs. A couple of years ago, the actor picked up a Range Rover Sport in white colour, which he uses currently for his daily chores. The vehicle is offered with four engine options in India but we are not sure which one powers Shahrukh’s SUV.

Also owns Mercedes-AMG GLE43

Shahrukh Khan’s kids Suhana Khan and Aryan Khan use a new Mercedes-AMG GLE43 to move around the town. While the Mercedes-Benz GLE has been a choice of many Bollywood celebrities including Kangana Ranaut, the high-performance GLE43 has not been spotted much. It is an expensive car and costs around Rs 1 crore, on-road.

The Mercedes GLE 43 AMG Coupe is powered by a 3.0-litre, bi-turbo petrol motor that outputs a maximum power of 367 bhp along with a peak torque of 520 Nm. The motor comes mated to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. This makes the GLE Coupe go from 0-100 in 5.7 seconds. The car has an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. The SUV gets a four-wheel drive system.

The first car of Shahrukh was an Omni. There is a video of him driving around in a Pajero SFX too. The young Shahrukh was spotted in the red-coloured Pajero. It is a pre-facelift model of the second generation version and gets silver-coloured cladding all around and a large and wide bull bar at the front.
