The Gumball 3000 Rally is back. 3000 miles with Ferrari Modenas, Porsche GT3's, 'Vettes, BMW M5's and Merc SL55's alike. For those who arent aware, this race was held last year from NY to LA through public roads. Needless to say, with supercars being driven aggressively by their enthusiastic owners - Cops, illegal racing and accidents were very much a part of the equation. Butttttttttttttttt for the petrol-head what better a sight than to see hundreds of supercars racing head to head on your local freeway?

Check out www.gumball2004.com for more details

These are just a sample of the cars that have already registered and racing in the currently held Gumball 2004.

You can download the 2003 gumball. Just type in "mischief 3000" in your Kazaa/WinMX search window and you will source two 30 minute files. Dont blame me if that mischief gets you some porn results too

I remember some guy on this forum suggested something on these lines, for team-bhp event, with 'OUR OWN' Supercars..
May be till the 'much talked about' Kari Motor Speedway in Coimbatore.

Anyway, yes Gumball 3000 is really an awesome event, should watch cannonball run 1 & 2 with major superstars in supercars.. if ur not aware of this ..

I have watched that first scene, with the Lamborghini at full throttle, with my woofer and speakers (3000 watts) at maxxed out volume atleast 400 times.

"I do want that sound recorded and played at my funeral"

Man,
i'm sure ur body will feel as if its being given a shock treatment. U won't be dead no more!!! U'll be electrified, thundered, etc, etc back to life!!(that's the idea isn't it!). Just think.. a Lambo engine 'music'(sound)!!! Wow!!

I was just thinking that if the Lambo guys launched a cassette/CD containing all the Lambo engine sounds (especially the accelaration) it would be topping the charts and sales all over the world!!

Picture this, u are in ur car at a traffic light, u will be the first to gt off the signal and the road is empty, u put in the tape/CD and play the acceleration 'SONG' the moment the lights turns green, instinctively even my grandmother would nail the accelarator!!
U may not own one but u would definitely feel like driving one in ur sweet old car!!

I actually have a CD, with the firing of the Shelby, Harleys, Lambos and Ferraris all tuned in.

As the topping, it ends with Schumys F2000 at full revv.

Few more Pics from this years Gumball -
The feature of the event was a guy who owns these three Ferraris..
You can call him lucky - I'll plainly call him "GOD".
3 Yellow Ferraris with Black Rims! I am sure ya'll must've heard it, if not.. Here ya go!

550 Barchetta with 600 BHP


F50 with 800 BHP


Enzo with 900 BHP (only this took part in the event and look what it did, below) :


366 KMPH (thats a lot of topspeed, considering the downforce it applies)


I am sorry to say this but this is Bad @$$ Racing at its F#*%in' Best...


All these Ferraris are tuned by JMB Racing.

Simply fantastic pictures. A Yellow F40 AND an Enzo with black wheels. Better yet, one of the few Enzos that is being driven the way it was built for.

Those mods sure seem to be working for him. His 366 km/h (228 mp/h) is much faster than the 350 km/h (217.5 mp/h) that regular Enzos max out at.
