hmm, your city is getting heated up next week, a Verde Ithaca Gallardo LP560-4 it is and a Silver SLS AMG with Magma Red interiors by May! Enough heat eh?

^^ I think you will be getting the solar storm in your hood.
@scorcher, I guess the SLS will be greeted by the XFR and the Zilla when its arrives home. Am I right? eh?

I'm not so sure of the greetings by the Britishers and the Japs because that guy , AFAIK , has shifted to Delhi . Let's see what turns out then .

What exactly does a solar storm in my hood indicate ? :|

The brits, german and a jap themselves are welcoming both the cars. LP next week and SLS by May. The owner himself told me. Shifting his place didn't come in our convo, hence not sure about it. Cheers!

It was just said in good humour relating to what scorchy said about the rising temperatures in your hood.

Aha! Now that is one nice EXOTIC colour to have on a car . Good choice of wheels by the owner and good to see the Chandigarh thread kicking once again .

Nice catch by your friend! I just love those rims. I guess there is a popat/lemon green gallardo in Delhi and this is the second one i assume but this shade of green is slightly different.

Pardon my lack of info but are those rims really unique? AFAIK they are standard on all LP-560-4s. At least that is what I've noticed. The Superleg. I guess has a 5 spoke design.


Regards.

Nice pic dude.

@eckzyboy - Congrats bro on the buy! Now that's one heck of a looker. Great choice of the rims. Can't wait now for the SLS!

EDIT - @ragingbull - I had the same question about the SL n VB, here is the reason in his own words,
Quote:
"I always loved the 560. Out of the present Gallardo variants available , it is the best daily useable car so far . The SL is meant for track duty but is also a good DD. The 560 is a great DD but can be used for track duty."

Love the colour and the rims on the Gallardo. But I surely will miss the Murcie.

Is it confirmed that the murcie has left ecks' garage?

Well, I'm not entirely sure if I agree with him on that, Scorcher. From what I've read and heard, the Superleggera is just a decked up Gallardo, i.e. complete with go-faster decals, spoilers and lighter wheels. Yes, it's a bit lighter, but not as track oriented as the 997 GT3 or the 430 Scuderia or the 458 '...', whenever it does come. It's not really 'meant' for the track, but it would work!

However, as you said, the 560-4 is a daily-driver Gallardo that can be used on the track, where as the Superleggera would do better as a track-day-car when compared to the 560-4, but it would serve the purpose as a daily-drive as much as the 560-4, or maybe not as much!

It's just my opinion, no offense!
