There are NO tag- alongs . This expedition is for members of the SCC.

You are right. M & M has provided back up vehicles.

Also it will be a nice bragging point for the Scorpio when it has to tow an ML or Q5 out of trouble.

On the cue Rehaan. That would make a stunning picture.

I am wondering which car here can be called a "Super Car"?

What exactly is the motto of this expedition? Is it like "saluting Army Jawans" or is it Brand building in the those parts of india?

I would not think its brand building because Nanos and Marutis have known to conquer Ladakh and Srinagr. It would be a walk in the park for Quattros.

I don't think we have any Car here. And more over, it is about Super Car Club Member's expedition/drive to the Himalayas from what I can make of.

Thanks for sharing the wonderful pictures & details.

Thanks

The cars and the terrain look great.
But-
1. None of the car even classifies as "Super Car". Only the members from SSC. Thats it. Porsche Cayanne, RR Sport, X5M, Top of line Q7, AMG versions of G, GL, ML would have been apt vehicles I think
2. Don't think these cars even belong to the participants. Looks like sponsered by Audi and MB

None of the cars qualify as Super car nor is it claimed anywhere ?? It is an expedition like any other group/club.

There is no motto/promotion or brand building exercise. At least the Super car members do not need to promote themselves.

For that matter , even 2 wheelers have made it there without a sweat.

It has been mentioned earlier that the cars are sponsored.

So these are the last set of pictures? I was expecting much more. What happened to Khardungla, Pangong, Nubra etc?

So did these vehicles also try the Sand Dunes in Nubra Valley?
