A very valid concern . So, as the Aventador is out of picture, finally boils down to the Gallardo and the Murcielago.

Very easy to spot the difference. Hope the below pictures help

Gallardo - almost rectangular head lamp casings.

I would say - Lucky Kid and Irresponsible Parent!

The kid would definitely be quite happy, but would go away feeling that its OK to be in a machine of this size/power and operate controls. Not good.

Both seem to be the Gallardos. But the headlight design and part of the bumper design is different. May be different years! Never mind.

Yeah there are many people who can identify the make as Lamborghini but not the actual model. So maybe this story was spread by them.
Even I get confused in identifying different Aston Martin and Bentley models.

I knew StrangeWizard would be there and I was looking for your sparky, but couldn't spot it at all. I was at the worli side of the sea-link as well. Zenster, what was your ride BTW, and where were you guys stationed?
I expected to see many stickered cars but spotted only one!
Zenster and me were at Worli seaface much before the sealink.
Earlier I had parked my car near the race course's gate when the cars were leaving to have a closer look.
This time I didn't want to drive alongside the rally because people were driving like crazy and a slight distraction would cause something unfortunate.
Moreover, I wouldn't be able to enjoy seeing the cars properly if I would be driving.

Btw I get confused between two members carzone and carboy
We guys should plan a meet soon!

This time there were no Nissan GT-Rs. Even just 3 Ferraris! Last year there were more.
The white Novitec 458 with Black roof was also missing.

Cheers!

maybe thats the reason I didn't spot you guys. Was exactly at the exit of the sealink.
The people were driving like maniacs, and it is a wise decesion not to drive if we need to enjoy the beauty of the cars. People hanging out of the window on the sealink is never a good site. Way too dangerous for a pic/video.

Yes, the GTR's and some of the ferraris were missing and also the corvette from last years show.

This time, the lambo turnout was great.

Hello SDP,

Both are Gallardos. Identification by spotting differences in the bumper (I know you just meant pointing out 2different cars ) might be a tough job but, for the headlight casings, do notice that they are elongated (even though slightly different shapes for both Gallardos as, posted by you) which is unique to the Gallardo only.

Murcielago and Aventador have trapezoidal ones.

I've seen similar wheels on a dark blue 996, don't remember clearly whether it participated last year or not.

It was the Matte Black Aventador. If you search on youtube you may be able to see the car being pushed by the public.

Yes, it was. Some other cars which were missed were the 599gtb, GT-R, Quattroporte,LP640,FF. Would have loved to have seen the Scuderia & the MC Stradale, maybe next year!

Btw, anybody noticed a white facelifted CLS with its wheels clamped at the Haji Ali entrance? Initially thought it was an AMG but it only had the AMG wheels.

Yup I saw the car! looked great. There was also a Silver Panamera behind it.
The towing van came and clamped both the cars but the Panamera's driver came I think and told them not to clamp the car.
When the rally started GS stopped his Gallardo at the gate and told the cop not to do anything to that CLS. Atleast that's what I could make out from his gestures.

This was the one with DC badges on the front and the rear. Does anyone know what exactly has DC done for this car? The paint-job definitely seems custom. But would somebody go to DC just for a custom paint-job?

Can somebody please confirm if, they spotted the Ferrari F430?

I for once, couldn't spot that. However, on a telephonic conversation with i<3turbo, he seems to have surely seen her. Any pointers where she was positioned? Any pictures?

I really wanted to catch a glimpse of her in person and was slightly disappointed when she couldn't be traced.

All I saw from the Ferrari camp were two 458 Italias and one 348 Classic. Am I correct?

Hello SDP,

Thank a ton! You got it spot on, buddy

My worst fears came true now! Guess, I skipped "some" part of this section as, the crowds were really thick on this side of the supercar range :(

I recollect not having seen the orange Gallardo Roadster next to this F30 as well. Bad!

I missed the event this year but from all your pics it seems like the Ferrari turn out this year was less compared to last year. I could identify only 4, arnt there couple of more Ferraris between Bombay and Pune itself. Wasnt there a blue Italia last year?

If i am not wrong i have seen the red F 30 parked inside a building compound opposite Malakka Spice in Pune. Can any Puneite confirm??

Just one question out of curiosity - Isn't there even a single Bugatti Veyron in Mumbai/Pune?

Have never seen one participate in the event in last 3 years.
