Default A few nice cars make it worthwhile

I went in the evening yesterday with a couple of my friends.

The show wasn't up to my expectations but I did catch the few beauties on display and it seemed worth the whole effort.

I too have an issue with the Rs 100 entry fee, I guess some of the senior members should let the organizers know about it. Also maybe next year we can talk to the organizers and get a discount, if nothing then just as a show of strength.

The SLS AMG was really the car of the show and I was lucky to be around when they started the car and we heard the bellow of the big V8. It does sound like thunder.

The other car that I would like to mention is the Rolls Royce Ghost: It was exquisite, from the deep colours to the white seats to the polished wood. It just was under-stated class all over. Not to mention the incredible length, left me wondering how I would react when I saw a Phantom.

Like I said, I did expect much more but then I am not complaining, it's not everyday that you see a Lambo, Ferrari, SLS, R8, Ghost, 370z, Z4 and it's even more rare to be able to just stand around them and just STARE.

In that sense, complete paisa vasool.

Thanks for the detailed report Dippy. I missed the show, but was able to see it all!

Has the front end of the Gallardo been raised ? Or was it just left on that "speed breaker" setting (i forget what its called).



Full credit to Merc for the AMG-only stall! That too the SLS!

@Rehaan: Yep youre right . Its called adaptive air suspension and it seems they have left it on the highest setting. They forgot to lower it I guess

The AMG stall added a C63 the next day as well.

I was smitten by the Mercedes stall. Their cars were overpowering everybody.
The SLS was truly the Star Car of the show!

Keep it up Mercedes-Benz....look forward to some more sportier & muscle cars from you

Thanks for the pics. But if I am not wrong the Evo X was launched the last year itself.
Someone from AR Motorsports had a silver colour one and even dragged it on the 2nd phase of Speedway2011
