No Mehuel, that is a 360 spyder.
The one with the hard top is called the 360 modena.

Now just imagine how I must have felt when I seen the SL500 AND the 360 Spider parked together just ahead of the traffic light. Or when I used to see the 355, Z3 and a Quad bike racing in a narrow lane.

No aadix, no pics. only memories.

anyways this is how the race used to work :

First comes the Quad bike. It stops bang opposite my buiding. Thats the first seign that the 355 is definitely gonna come. The Quad guy stops, shuts down his motor, *flips out his cell and talks to someone (probably tellin Spiderman and his rival that the road is empty and safe enough to race). And within 3 minutes we hear(only hear...not see) the 355 far away. Quad guy starts the Quad and waits.And then the sound becomes louder and louder and there at the end of my lane i see 2 red cars turning to enter my lane. Obviously its the 355 leading and the Z3 following closely behind (No Esteems, Sumo's Qualis' at that time). Both the cars pass at high speed. The quad guy follows the Z3 and the race continous till Juhu circle (i think so). The 355/Z3/Quad race took place only twice (or thrice at the most). Most of the other times it was only the Z3 and the Quad. Remember the Quad guy (dunno whether it was Spiderman) doin a wheelie on it and taking dangerous U-turns (almost lifting off one side of the bike). And speeding in the lane and screeching to a halt almost a few feet next to the parked Z3. Then exchanging drivers and carrying out the same stunts again. And you shud see, everyones eyes (and i literally mean EVERYONE) would be on them. I never used to think of these races as dangerous one cos these guys had very good control over their machines.

I still have no idea who owned the Z3. Seen Spidey drive it a couple of times. But 355 was ALWAYS driven by Spidey.

Anyways the race still continues. But sadly the Z3 and the Quad have been replaced by the Esteem and City who try real hard enough to atleast keep Spidey within sight.
