I met a very unlikely guest on the road today. Probably one of the very few in India... pardon me for the really poor pics

Sweet catch there ! I've seen a Smart ForTwo with foreign plates a couple years back on ECR, but never knew this existed.

No this is not a museum but a private collection in Chennai .
Belongs to the founder of Madras Exotic Car Club.

He has taken his love for cars to a whole new level by building a living space around the cars he loves most . He has also collected rare amalgam scale models and F1 memorabilia like the front nose and rear wing from Barrichello's Ferrari F1 car and the F1 exhaust from Schumacher's car . This place is truly heaven . I will let my pictures do the talking

Spotted about 12 supercars roaring down ecr today morning towards Mahabalipuram while I was cycling. I was on the opposite lane so couldn't get a detailed look but the convoy included a couple of Ferraris, atleast one Lambo, 3 Porsches, a Maserati (?) and some others. Edit: included the Carrera cabrio Manish has posted above. Music to the ears.

You have to begin a trip on the ECR between 630 and 645am on Sunday and drive up to Mahabalipuram. You can return by 10am at the latest. You will definitely see a few supercars and several superbikes. The toll plaza is a good spot to just wait and see them.

I do it every week. Yesterday was especially rewarding.

I was about to tell him I counted 16 supercars on Manish's page...

I saw the R8, the M3s, the Aventador, the 911 cabriolet, the 911 GT3, the 911 GT3 RS, the 911 turbo, the i8, the X6M, the Cooper, the RC, the Z3 and all the Porsche SUVs...

@manishasrani, post some videos in case you had shot them...

Drove down to Chennai this past saturday and saw this nice Macan S outside Murugan Idly Shop on the highway. Stayed at the Hilton and saw a white Phantom parked at the entrance during my entire stay. Guess it belongs to the owner of the hotel. Didn't click any pics of the RR.
