Cyrus Dikra - My favourite Ferrari is the one model before this one. I never liked the "snout nose" of this one. By the way, what is the silver car on the right side of the picture where "gumball3000" is written? I think it is an absolutely gorgeous car, perfectly proportioned. May be an Aston but I may be wrong. I also love the silver classic Ferrari with the white circle on its bonnet. The brown car next to the Mercedes 600 is also superb. And, by the way, only one BMW photograph? Not fair!

Some notes on the cars

The Merc 600 Grosser belongs to Jeremy Clarkson, the Rolls next to it is Captain Slow's, there was a rare Etype with a flat floor that belongs to the hamster

JayKay lent a rare Maserati also


The Napier Railton is from the Brooklands Museum was one of the fastest cars of its time. Risky considering that it had no front brakes!

I went for this show too, on the 4th of November. It was something else; something definitely not worth missing.

I sat in the enzo, and the person who I became friendly with (I think the manager of the company that owned the stall) offered to take me for a drive in it at the end of this month. Too bad I am back in Mumbai.

Surprisingly, I cant really figure out what that particular car is. maybe someone can figure it out. Also, sadly, M3s are just too common for me to take pictures of, although you would have loved the really really nice Blue M3 convertible that was there.

Car in questions looks like a Ginetta or a Marcos. But i can't be 100% sure.

Ginetta took part in the 2010 Eco Rally too, so maybe this is their 2011 car?

I think you're right!!

It must be the Ginetta G50 (EV)

Traced the Revolve Eco rally lead from your post and the sticker on the bonnet...

Sorry everyone ... the silver coupe that DHABHAR.BEHRAM likes so much has not been identified correctly.

The car is the Lightning Car Company GT, to give it it's full name. Or Lightning GT for short.

More information at Lightning GT entering late prototype phase — Autoblog

Cheers,
