They are all in Delhi. Claridges hotel was the venue. The LP560 belongs to my friend and the R8 belongs to my neighbour in Delhi.

1. This is the exotic car club of Delhi. There is the Supercar club of India and there is the Canonball club in Delhi.

2. It was more of fun, with National Pride and a suttle way of informing the world that Indians have arrived. Technically the Porsche is the only one carrying the flag, the others only colours.

Our fellow members . If i recall right there was a movie Canonball run or a similar name and the Interstate supercar drives abroad from where this club name was inspired. I assure you all cars are in India and there was an Arcticle also which is on the previous pages of this thread or on V10's thread.

speeds,

You've hit the nail spot on! Canonball Run and the fact that I skimmed through Zohaib's post # 3722 and so missed seeing the people (and the ambience) in one of the pics made me think this was shot in California.

Also, I seem to associate the bright yellow-orange colours in exotics with California - as to why that is so is for any resident team-bhp shrink to unravel!

Btw, any M club in Mumbai - exclusive to the Bimmer Ms?

Regards

I have to admit if someone does not know India, he would not be convinced that these cars or the pictures are from here.

Most of the cars in Delhi are not from the Orange and yellow families, and i love it. Its like a welcome change from the routine thought process of Ferrari so red and Lambo so either a yellow or orange.

No Bombay does not have a Bmw club. There is the three pointers club for Mercedes.

That looks like a Techart Porsche Cayenne to me!! Nice pic. Can't decide whether to love the body kit or hate it!

Wow! The Cayenne looks fultoo gangsta! Can't really say if it is just a cosmetic mod, but I think it has a Techart kit and rims. Neat find

EDIT - Oops, just saw ragingbull's post. Agreed.

@scorcher and ragingbull: That is a hideous bodykit on an already hideous car. What on earth can make you even think of liking it?
