Surprised/glad to see so many expensive supercar owners chosing not to spend/waste on a VIP number

The VIP number trend has still not hit Calcutta yet.
But again adding VIP numbers to such cars would be like adding peanuts to the price tag.
0001 sells for 5L and the other numbers under 0021 for 2-3L. Double digits of the same number 1111 or 2222 sell for like 2-3 again again.

Great Initiative Cityvic !! It feels great to see all the supercars out at one place. I could not make it to the show, but have heard it was organized very well.

Great coverage cityvic and lovely pictures especially the interiors.
I think that so many super cars must have thrown the traffic out of gear there.

Were SUV's not part of the supercar show ? There must be quite a few Evoques and Rangies in Kolkata now.

I think this was better than the show held in Kerala. Could see the people getting close to the car. In Kerala, the similar show had lots of restrictions the last time I visited (might have been different this time but did not want to do that again).
Anyway, can't blame the super car owners who would get jittery when lots of people are around the cars.
Yup, absolutely love the Ferrari 348tb. It's a true classic and rare to see the gated manual gear. But the convertible F430 with the tacky Pioneer stereo was a no no IMHO.

Thanks Baddychat.

The traffic was not thrown out of gear since the event was held inside the club's parking lot.
SUV's cannot be classified as a Supercar, hence they were not a part of the show. The Cayenne was on display from the Porsche dealership though.

I would not like to compare the show to any other city's. This was the first time such a show was organized in the city and we tried to give our best in it. The Petes Supercar Show held in Kerala was a massive success. The location was much bigger and there were more cars as well I guess.

We had it in mind to allow people to experience such cars by calling in the dealer cars. The spectators were allowed to sit and feel up the cars, some dealers also allowed them to rev up their demo cars.

The owner cars were barricaded properly, you will only see people close to them because that was when they entered and everyone crowded around to have a look it at before it was put behind the barricades. Supercar owners would not like fingerprints or hairline scratches on the paint of their cars.

Thanks for the comments on the 348, shall pass it to the owner.

The F430 Spider has that Pio HU since it was a preowned car and the previous owner had plonked it in as the OEM HU did not support USB's I assume.

This 348 is my favorite Fezza of the city too. I guess it is also the cleanest 348 of the country.

Cal's Supercar scene is growing a lot.

Earlier, there just use to be 3-4 collectors who use to own such nice Supercars. But now people have started understanding the passion and are also spending to get themselves such cars.

4-5 participants of the Supercar Show have got themselves new cars after the show already.
These include a Audi S8, Bentley CGT Cabriolet, Jaguar F type and 2 Gallardo's.

The dealers too are trying hard to sell such Supercars, sportscars in the city.
Audi sends 2-3 prospective customers to BIC every 2 months. JLR often organizes events with the F type and the XKR. Porsche organizes Driving Experiences for prospective customers every 2-3 weeks. MB does the Star Drive.

CityVic,
Hi...

i always knew Kolkata to be the city of joy... but the joy i received after going through your photo journey is unparalleled. Kudos to you for organizing such an event. Though all the super cars present are Super Cars, but i missed my favorite, the Aston Martin... Hope Kolkata has a few of those as well.

thanks fro sharing this amazing collection with all of us.

Thank you so much.

Cal had an Aston Martin for a few years until 2012. A White Vantage V8.
That is the only Aston has entered Bengal till date.
Hopefully, another one should be coming soon.

From what I have heard, the VIP plates that have customised numbers are a percentage of the car's ex-showrrom value. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Nope. It does not work like that in Calcutta.
Calcutta RTO works in the way I have mentioned in the above post.
