The man is a true legend for all Lambo enthusiasts. It will be great to see him in Mumbai for the super car event. I guess this will be the first time he will come to India. I wonder what he will have to say about the roads / driving in india

Got to know through a friend that a Blue Nissan GTR from Ahmedabad is also going to be participating in the SCI drive.

Yeah lets hope and pray that the particular Gallardo finds some space to stretch its legs..rather even toes would be enough.

^ Do share some more info.

Maybe i'm a bit jaded, but as nice as the current list is, its still stuff that most of us have seen quite a few times before. If there was something really unique there - i'm sure it would generate a lot more interest.

Are you talking about the 570-4? Or has GS's orange Gallardo gone under the knife? Or is it something else?

One of my friends had mailed me the picture of Gautam's T-Rex last month. Since then I have been keenly waiting to see it in person. If he is getting it to the show, I think Supercar Show will be a great opportunity to realise my dream. Thanks Speedy for the news!

The other cool car in the back is Mercedes Benz AMG G Wagon!

Talks were on for a few months now and Mr. Balboni was to drive the Superleggera for the event.

Now that quite a lot has been revealed about the Gallardo, let me add that it has been tuned the same way as Willy König tuned Ferraris in the late 80s and early 90s.
This should pretty much give you guys an idea about its specs

It was just a matter of time before someone took this step. I thought Ecks would be the first, but im glad that the car is in Mumbai so we can get a glimpse of it. It has to be UGR or heffner, it all depends on which build he opted for. Nonetheless its going to be a beast and a real treat to watch.

Since Balboni is going to be around I definately want to attend. Is there any way we can get to meet him, even if we dont own a supercar?

I'm told that the gallardo is a simple tt. I don't think it's output is in four digits as mentioned above. Does anyone have more news on it, as to what's been done ? Would be very interested in knowing.....

I'm told that the car was done in Bangalore ? Is that true ?

Two words to say for the Gallardo. Underground Racing. From what I've heard its in 4 digits, the horsepower.

Hope the UR Gallardo makes it. Yes, it is mental. And also has the ability to switch to different states of tune on the go for practicality purposes.

Also, meeting Balboni will be a treat.

Now here's some more news, not sure if its 100% true.

Firstly, its not just LP1000-2, its more than 1000 (something I'm not ready to believe)

Secondly, it won't be coming on 22nd
