I hope he knows about the Chennai track where these beauties need to be unleashed. 300kph on Indian highways sounds scary...esp when I see people crossing the road in your videos.

ya it was kind of scary as well. i was shocked a few times when i was taking videos. esp when 2 porsches were ripping one behind the other that to at very very high speeds.. that noise shook me completely as i was just a few feet away from them !!

I dont think it was scary.

The people you see crossing the roads were doing so when there was clearly no traffic. These guys were actually very sensible and while they were doing "insensible" speeds, they didnt take any stupid risks.

There was ABSOLUTELY nobody crossing the roads while the supercars were anywhere close to half a km from them.

I know what you are talking abt . I was there remember ??

It wasnt that scary man.... they were flying, but I didnt think it was scary. But again, you were quite close, so maybe you felt it more than me.,

Awesome video, and amazing to just the the continuous stream of cars zipping by on both sides.


I think the 997 looks gorgeous, even though its in green.

Yeah, i had the same thought. All it takes is one person to misjudge the speed or get distracted while crossing, regardless of how many precautions the driver takes.
Anyway, to each his own, i guess the counter-arguement would be "whats the point of having a car like that if you dont drive fast". It seems these guys are enthusiastic about their cars, i'm sure they would consider a track day, which would be quite a sight!

Great report....lucky you to see / experience multiple supercars being ripped together. You know whats cool in this story? Supercar owners who are willing to share the experience with an enthusiast, who they don't know from a fly on the wall. Cheers to their spirit!

@GTO I was seriously shocked by nikhils encounter coz the guy just called him over and let him be a part of the whole event. Great going. Such guys are kinda rare.

@ Nikhil Was that your bike in the background of the mercs pic in your first set of pics?

Yes it was!!

@GTO ---- I agree with you. I was very very shocked. Some of my friends didnt believe that it actually happened. I gave up trying to convince them and just sent them the youtube link of me in the Gallardo.

I hope my luck continues

Another thing I forgot to mention..... there were quite a few construction workers near the cars. Some of them came to me and asked me if the cars run on Diesel or Petrol

I just managed to splutter "petrol" before I had an epilepsy attack...

Awesome nikhil. That must have been an experience of a lifetime. I envy you.

Riding along in one supercar is something to be proud of... riding in all of them is surely priceless.

Let me know if this is going to be a regular thing... i would like to be as lucky as well.
