Just saw Singhania's S2000 at Swadi's this morning. Probably in to get some major work done before the Mumbai drag. Guess he does not want to be embarrassed again.

Well the R34-GTR now resides in Bangalore. So that in the drag for sure. Even the Blue Imprezza I hardly doubt it he will come.

Hey X,

I have seen it myself on the road between the racecourse and willingdon club, heading towards tulsi pipe rd.
That was about 2-3years back.... dont know what happened to the car after that....my best guess is that it went to banglore.

Singhania getting a skyline for the drag is a new development.... im trying to see if there is any truth in it. Will get back to you guys when i know.

X-Mach,

It was blue. Exactly like the picture posted above by "The Wolf". Except maybe it had a different spoiler.?...

Well im sure a lot of owners do not want the publicity (and stupidity) of a drag race. Personally, if i owned a supercar and could take it to the twisties whenever i wanted, i would not be keen on taking my car to a drag event.

However, if i owned a viper or a skyline.... they would be begging me to take them down the 1/4mile!!.... those are the only two exceptions i feel...(from cars that i would want to own...lol

Exactly.So why did`nt he show up??
Now this just makes me feel,GS owns the 1475bhp Skyline that Dom was talkin bout.Its quite possible knowing the freak he is.

Oh...i didnt get what you meant by "GS" in the post before the last one!....

What i remember reading was that Singhania got it just after the banglore drag....
Plus the 1000+bhp skyline Dom spoke of is black in colour and last we heard of it was in delhi...... still waiting for pics of that beast Dom !!!!??

ps - i hope atleast one skyline shows up coz at the moment we have too many skyline discussions and not enough skylines and too much confusion!

True.For now all we can do is gaze at our Mumbai Skyline and pray to see a few Skylines in action soon.

The car( the blue skyline posted below) was brought by a dealer in Ghatkopar, Bbay
Its a V6 2000 cc pushing no more than 130-150 BHp
Its a non turbo and a 99 year manufacture thats what the dealer told me . The paint job is done at Santacruz Bandh area.
The asking price was 13 laks .
It was also seen with dealer JMD at Juhu, Bbay
