haha thanks Planet_rocker !

I'm suprised the Audi R8 hasn't been caught on camera as I keep spotting it around the city, specially around minto park.

Well if any one wants a peak at it, it's always parked at Lytton hotel at Sudder Street (that's the lane beside the Indian Museum)

I hear that the R8 will be racing the Lamborghini soon !!

It'll be legendary !!! Can't wait !

@planet_rocker: White R8 is still here. saw it on 24th night. Man, what a noise!
Here's a new addition to the city's BMW fleet. Orissa regn. Sorry about the blurry pic. Damn you autofocus!
S001: You're spoiling us, mate! Great pics!

S001 - The R8 has been spotted many times - there are few pics on this thread.

What i meant was - i heard that R8 was supposed to be on sale and the red M3 was supposed to replace it. The owner has great taste for exotics for sure

@ raginbull - the last two shots of the lambo were shot by Rohin IIRC on Roudon Street.

Awesome pics S001! That very Lambo is the first supercar I ever laid my eyes on. What a beauty . But what are those two little bulls doing on the sides? They weren't there before...

Suddenly hear a car with loud exhaust uproaching.Pop my head out of the window see the
red Ferrari 355 go past.Sorry no pics it was too fast for me.But the exhaust note was a treat.

I might get flamed for this, but hey, this is a public forum!

The Gallardo Superleggera and the Ferrari F430 are bordering on ordinary compared to that splendid red F355. Oh boy am I in love with that Ferrari! I don't care if it makes just 380 horses or whatever, the intoxicating smell of that rich burnt octane petrol coupled to that glorious screaming V8 and those pipes, it's just in a completely different league! I'm bowled over!

Cant agree with you more suhaas.Love clean beautiful lines of the F355.The perfect transition from the older to the modern ferraris.Probably the most beautiful ferrari's in India.

By the way,that SL with those deep dish alloys looks fab!

Quite a few SLs in kolkata.This another silver with AMG wheels,SL 500 black and the SL63 AMG.

Suhaas and avishar I beg to differ, the F355 is beautiful no doubt, but pit it against the Superleggera, and I'm sorry mate it doesn't match up.
Well it's more of a personal opinion.

These were some picture's I thought you guys would love

+1 to that suhaas

The F355 is nothing short of classic Ferrari styling. I am a hardcore Ferrari lover but I must say that none of the modern Ferraris match up to it in terms of design.

@S001: Like you said to each his own. That 355 still looks more beautiful to me that the Superleggera.

However I must thank you for putting up these pictures of the 355. Brought back memories when I had a ride in this very car 5 years ago when it was in Mumbai. I have driven an F430 but I would given anything to drive this one and sell my soul to own one

Ride in a Ferrari F355 Spider (Pics/ Video : Ferrari F355 Spider-awesome..Ride in a F355 Spider - INSANE)

You have brought life into the Kolkata Imports thread . Keeps me coming back to check it only for the 355.

Thanks Dippy !

Well like I said it's a personal thing.
Recently I had the good luck to sit in the Superleggera and OH BOY !!

I was so excited i literally could not find the seat belt for a bit

but any ways oh boy the sound of that v12 engine ! the sheer power.

It's like a flash man, I got out with a smile plastered on my face and it probably was on all day

And a week or two ago i caught the Superleggera racing with the F355, NO MATCH.

Yes of course the F355 is a beauty !

But if you saw it on red road. it got OWNED !
