If i had to pick one, i wouldnt be able to... id have to politely ask for one each of a Countach, Diablo and a Murcielago. I have seen a countach upclose but it was in a parking lot. I had a chance when i got to revup a diablo and another chance to sit in a murcielago barchetta. Unforgettable experiences! They sure do make the most desirable machines on earth.

Some serious excitement in your post bro! You saw it "tomorrow"? & "V6 litre"? It happens, when you see such cars .

I think this is the same car that belonged to the boyfriend/husband of the model Deepti Bhatnagar. I used to see it in Juhu near Guestline Days in '96-'98. That one was a convertible too.

Rajeev has since long sold his Viper and Firebird. The 8 series is a sad piece of metal now. Sad....!! Such abuse!! and it was AC Schnitzer kitted and tuned.

The Firebird is with one of the co-owners of FnI since 2 yrs now, and his office is at Mahalaxmi. Thats the reason the car is spotted there.

Rajeev's Viper is now with Gondal, the same which we saw at the Speed Run this year. The 8 series was fab but like Gogi said its in bad shape now. Saw it once at Four Seasons and again at some garage at Dadar.

I had heard from a friend that there is a Pontiac Firebird parked in an industrial estate next to Shah and Anchor College Chembur.
@khanak: Is this the same one?
