Kudos to the owner for getting us our first official Indian car entry. Double kudos for the India flag. Besides that, the wrap is hideous,IMO!

That wing really adds a sweet touch.

Maybe I'm out of the loop here - but why is the theme "camouflage" for all the cars posted here ??

Till last year, I believe, Gumball let the individuals decide on their wraps, but this year (onwards?) the wraps need to be in a common theme and its camo for 2013.

I dunno which troops they are honoring though, they have American, Arabs, Indians, Europeans, Aussies

EDIT:: Yes, I mean Indians, apart from the Aventador, I've come across an Indian dude in the videos driving a Murcielago LP640 with an SV wing with 'Om' stuck over the car.

I doubt the theme is compulsory. Tim Burton aka Shmee150, Jon Olsson and a few other participants are driving cars without camo wraps.

The camo wrap could be a mutually decided theme since the participants generally refer to themselves as "The Gumball Army"

Quote from Raccoon Vehicle Branding's official website,

Quote:
The rally, in its fifteenth year, promises to be one of the best featuring a special 'Gumball Army' theme where participants can choose to have the special edition Gumball 3000 camouflage wrap (pictured in the header) or opt for their very own unique camo colourway.

The drivers can be assured that Raccoon's vehicle wraps will provide a fantastic Military look that will look stunning on the start line. The wrap will also provide great protection for the paintwork on the road!
Tim (Shmee150)'s R8 is in the Media Crew and not part of the "Army" as such. Moreover, if you follow Shmee, you'd know that the car already has a wrap on it (Midnight Purple) and I don't think you can do another layer of wrap over it without damaging the first.

Coming to Jon Olsson, his car, the Rebellion R2K is just not one of the participants, but a project based on the Ultima GTR which he developed with ex-Koenigsegg designer and was backed by Betsafe. So its currently running on all Betsafe livery and he even renamed his Gumball team from Team Stormtroopers to Team Betsafe.

The Indian dude's name is Amit from Oman according to Gumball website (in a turquoise aventador)., there is also another Dr.Anish driving in the gumball..according to their website....

That Rebellion RK2 is as based on an Ultima GTR as a Ferrari Enzo is related to a tractor...


It has an R8 V10 motor AFAIK with two turbochargers

A lot of speculation over what powers that car. Some say its registration papers show a Twin Turbo Lexus V8, while others say Jon purchased a crashed Gallardo, took out its engine and transmission and put it here.

The car, I would say is very much an Ultima GTR. I’ve read its been his dream project since he first drove the GTR.

See the interiors and the doors even,

The first phase of the project (RK1) began in 2011 and here, in this video ADV.1 posted when they were testing his custom rims, the twin-turbo “whoosh” of the GTR is clearly audible.





But then, I believe, for the RK2, he went and swapped the engine, maybe an Lamborghini/R8 V10 or Lexus V8. I would guess, a V10 because I could hear a distinct V10 soundtrack in the videos from the Copenhagen grid, but this time, I couldn't hear any Turbos. Confusing.

Sounds like a V10 but didn't really hear a gearshift so no turbo noise obviously...



Also, the Indian flag looks sweet on the Thakur Aventador, hopefully he keeps the wrap for a few weeks after Gumball 3000

Going off topic from this thread, did'nt our complete man, Mr GS, participate in one of the earlier Gumballs? in a Lamborghini, which he had in the UK.
