Default Small Supercar show comes to town!

Today, I was just roaming around the track of the San Jose Grand Prix. All Super Vs racing with BMW 4 Cylinder Turbocharged Engines. Great sound, which I heard all day long as the race took place on the lane next to my house here in San Jose, California. Suddenly, I saw this small but amazing display of exotics! Here goes,

Mercedes-Benz G 55 AMG


Ferrari 365 GTB Spider


Aerial Atom, which has been converted into a Lithium Battery Powered car


Ford GT


Saleen S7 (Its loooong and gorgeous)


Porsche Carrera GT


Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren


Now the car, I always wanted to see!
The Ferrari F40 (Just the best of them all)


This is nothing to the one compared to last year where they had Bugatti EB110 SS, Porsche 959, Ferrari Enzo, Lamborghini Gallardo, McLaren F1, Ferrari 360 Modena and Porsche race cars on display.

Overall a great experience. One thing, Pictures just dont do any justice to the size of the supercars! They have to be seen in real to get the full kick!

Hey, was the 365 one of the original spiders, or a conversion? Cos lots of them are converted ones, the originals are very rare.

Looks like you saw some pretty amazing cars!!! Damn, that F40 looks nice!!!
