Default Meanwhile in Europe: Gumball 3000 kicks off

Have a look at this:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22590798

Quote:
Up to 100 predominantly luxury cars are taking part in the Gumball 3000 rally in which some of the world's richest petrol-heads get to flaunt their wealth during a drive that will take them through Europe.


Motto: If you have it, flaunt it.

All it takes is an idea. Maximillan's idea of Gumball is just so awesome. A chance to chill with the who who's if you're a part of it and a visual treat for the rest.

What was the first car on that BBC video? Did I also see the Tumbler? Sweet.

As one of them said "Quite ostentatious" BUT, I LOVE IT
Such a treat to the eyes, but I expected to see more cars in the video and less interviews..

And the showstopper was the Batmobile definitely.

That TG1 thing is terribly ugly. Looks like somebody stuck a lot of sanitary-ware on to a GT-R.

Here's their official website - http://www.gumball3000.com

The list of entries with the funds raised so far... The haters can go on about the participants being ostentatious and what not but there still a good cause in it!!
https://www.gumball3000.com/rally/entry_grid

Team # 85 is our very own entry from India - the sad part is that they've only been able to generate about $75 so far!

The more popular the entry/vehicle - the more funds they generate!!
