Haha that's quite a site Ecks.

Though the Lambo looks like a toy for some reason, I think it's cause there's no reflection coming off the car, therefore making the car look like that.

Though the car is massive and definitely KILLS the cars behind it, therefore killing most the Indian auto scene. Amazing..

Dude, much as I would love to put another hundred odd bhp under my M3's hood, I think I probably won't do that at this point. I am still quite keen on the sports muffler though...would love to do a group buy with you and Accordmasters.

I heard the Eisenmann Race in Person. I was driven in that car also. It's fantastic. Sounds orgasmic. Great choice.
What car did you hear that exhaust on? Was it an E9x M3? I am really keen to know how loud / resonant it is under normal, sedate use, because I do not think I would like my car to be overly loud in normal use, but I would like it to be a bit louder when driven hard.

Not at all. Unbelievably comfortable, infact.

Haha! That was a fun day!

@Vinaydas: The E90/92/93 M3s (i.e. current generation) have very comfortable back seats with plenty of leg room. It's quite easy to get into the E92/E93 as well, the front seat moves all the way forward. Having said that, obviously it is not a good place for the elderly to be trying to get. The previous gen E46 M3 was more snug in the back!

Surely this was not done in India, was it ?

In fact other than the German autobahns and the Isle of Man, I don't think there is any other public road where you can get to such insane speeds legally, is there?

And no closed track would let you get anywhere close to that speed.

Closed airstrip, I suppose. Check uploaded videos.

Not at all. I have friends who are well over 6 feet tall and they are very very comfortable when they sit in the back seat.

I am getting one for my self from the U.S. You can hear it when I post videos and reviews here and then if you like it , you and Arjun can get in touch with fellow member Fireblader , who will be more than happy to give you a good quote.

Yes it was done very much in India. If you check my LP640 thread , I was at a closed air strip where I repeatedly touched 200 MPH .

Ohh. My bad.

I had already checked out the pics of your LP640 and the 7-series from that thread, but somehow missed those vids.

Beautiful. Must have been an exhilarating experience, to say the least!

And congrats on the upcoming R8 too.

Great collection Karan... what impresses me more is that all the cars don't just seem like random purchases to spend and show off extra money, they all seem like they belong to one person who knows his cars well. Drive safe buddy and hope to see that F430 soon.

I have mentioned this before but you didn't reply so I thought I'll say it again, I visit Chandigarh often since my bro is a Doctor at Fortis, Mohali... so can I come and droooolll in front of your garage for a few hours, seeing all these cars in flesh will be like a dream come true
