Ariel atom is one of my all time favourite cars, it doesn't take much of a brilliance to fit in all kinds of gizmo's into a car, but to build a minimalistically engineered car that could go ballistic at the snap of a finger calls for a lot of ingenuity. Consider this; the ariel costs just 1/10th of the other cars of it's category and they are all mostly in the super car category. It is also an intelligent car buyers car (albeit specialist buyer) of the likes of Jay Leno, talk show host or Junior Singhania of Raymonds

Yes, it is the only Atom in the country.

I think the second part have been answered lots of times, majority of supercar spottings are from Mumbai so no need for a specific thread. Some Logic. I think there is a thread, but Locked.

AMAZING pics Rehaan! What a machine this is! I love the way you take pictures so pedantically. In the following pic, is that the gear lever? Looks funny

Rehaan,

Excellent pics. Can i request the MODS for something; can we please have a thread dedicated to Mr. G.S's rides? I am pretty sure you have a lot of pics to share after the Ferrari & the Atom and many more to come in future. Also his rides are the highlight of the super car show.

Cheers!!

Those are some very detailed pictures mate. The owner does have great taste in cars but do you know which car is his daily ride? I think he also owns a Porsche Cayenne. Also the Atom has no spare tyre!
Here's a pic i snapped during last years event.

im not sure of the 3000GT but Mr GS most definitely has an EVO (VI?) pics of which can be seen in the Parx Chennai Supercar thread..

@rehaan: when you say two hondas, one is the s2000. is the other the atom you are referring to coz of the engine or is there anything else in his stable..

Cheers!!

He owns a lot of cars. More than anyone can confidently list out. His daily ride is a 7 series. Seen him in that.
