Thumbs up 3000

Excellent pictures Nishant!

Trust the Gumballers to turn out in the wildest rides - anything to make a statment!

Glad you're enjoying the SLR. Planning on hitching a ride?

Yeah, I don't think you can see it in the earlier pics in this thread, but from some friends pics(below), that Gallardo with the polished metal look paint job has Saudi plates(or at least middle eastern plates).

Wow, automotive wet dream!

Just an aside, 2F2F features Tyrese Gibson, not Tyson Beckford.

We dream to go to an event like this. Your actually there. Great. Awesome stuff. Was waiting for the event to happen.
Had started a thread on the Gumball 3000 but no one was interested a year back.

Did you see the two blokes in the Police car that normally come along..??
and how about the veyron..???

Love the MAtte black Gt-40. its a stunner.

Unfortunately, there was not Veyron. But I did meet her at the Danville Exotic Car show. Many cars had police sirens, jammers, scanners, with antennas so big, that the cars looked like they were remote controlled

@ Maverick: Frankly, I am still in the Gumball mood. I wish the event never got over. It was a dream, literally. All the cars an enthusiast would want were around.

Excellent pics. Must have been quite an experience being surrounded by such superb cars. The sound of the cars would have been truly hair raising.

The green car with huge wheels looks very ugly. Reminds me of a push cart on our streets.

Yup that's a Saudi plate alright. I had a feeling this car would show up again this year. It was present along with the Porsche last year when the event got cancelled due to a fatal accident involving two british participants.

Here's the link to a few pictures of the Lambo and Porsche I managed to upload a few months back.
