The chauffeur in the Ariel Atom just takes the cake! That has to be the pic to end them all!

And I agree with everyone who said that the 348 was the most beautiful of all the cars there, except those over-sized rear tyres kind of took away from the elegance of the car.

Frankly I hardly remember anyone who was driving sedately. 911 Turbo, RIPPED. F430s, RIPPED. M3, RIPPED. Boxster, RIPPED. Gallardo driven by nice ladies, RIPPED. One of the Phantoms was killing it too !!

I think Gogi clicked a couple. It was a 5xx with an M kit, but the exhausts were not changed and the badge had only an M and not M5. Had nice rims though, stock M5 rims and the bodykit.

Although we reached late, we could see the cars ripping near Marine Drive and Charni road. It seems that the cars were released in batches and were racing each other. Marine Drive was a sight today, with vintage cars running alongside supercars.

Have some pics but since all of them have already been covered, will post them later. We also had the "BOSS" Gallardo stoping over at Marine Drive to allow us do a small photoshoot. The guy who was driving it said his name was "Bathena" who used to race at Sholavaram and Juhu aerodome. The name does ring a bell, he owns a racing Honda 250, not sure which one. But a very kind man who stopped over on our request. Thanks Bathena!
That was Persis Bhathena you spoke to. Elder brother of Aspi Bhathena. And that Honda 250 is a '62.

Good show, it seems.
But more interesting is this article in Times of India about certain Arpan Divanjee.

Arpan when did you buy a camera?

Akshay/Dippy your comments please

Yes it was, parked at Phoenix Mills. AFAIK it was 7800, maybe I'm mistaken.

No excuses for being in Mumbai and letting this pass !! [unless one was off-roading on Sunday morning with the other group, lol]

Looks like Kandivli resident Arpan Divanjee dropped a special request with his friend from the press [who we met at the event, yes] to mention his enthusiasm gone overboard at the event.

I'm sorry, but this deserves another....

EDIT : OMG F50 just dropped another piece of info on me.... AHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH
