I'll highlight the main point in my quote :

Apart from which the 911 Turbo convertible (and all 911 convertibles, for that matter) looks like a fat whale from the back!

@ theragingbull

this question has been asked and answered before.

ecks, you say that lambo does not provide proper servicing and maintainence facilities in india. so what about your flying spur, how good is the service facilities of bentley in india, considering lambo and bentley are sister companies.

If ecks can own so many supercars and even airplanes. I am sure he will have enough land and money to start a race track and can turn it into a business. What say ecks?

You've been asked this so many times, why dont you get yourself a nice shiny bike. Just so you have something to talk about. Trust me they are a different world and like I said before chances are a 10 lakh rupee bike will out accelerate your multi-carore LP640.

Or maybe you can just buy it to fill the gap before buying your new car. *shamless biker plug*

Ecks fabulous collection as always.You said coupes so here are my suggestions:
Jaguar XK( quite exculsive but A.s.s is going to be the thorn)
Mercedes CL( If you want a luxo coupe)
Mercedes SL65 AMG( mad mad car)
BMW 6 coupe( u have an M3 so i guess this is out of contention)
Porsche 991 turbo( this really fits yur bill as an everyday supercar, but i guess u have already grown tired of it)
Roll royce phantom coupe( just suggesting!)
Maserati Gran turismo S( nice GT)
Ferrari 458 Italia( wait for it an get the first in the country...plzzz )
Aston martin DB9( yur best bet)
Some other options are panamera, an E 63 amg,a nissan GTR,Cayenne GTS.

Sorry brother , there is no supercharger for sale by Hamann . They have an engine replacement for the M3 that puts the V10 in the M3. And I meant that I have the fastest E92 M3 in India , so far . I do have plans of dropping the G Power SC into this car.

I am not saying that that E92 in bombay isn't tuned, but pretty sad for an M3 owner to boast of that what he does not have. May be he has a different supercharger , but I doubt it.

That's why I said "apparently".
There is no E92 M3 CSL.That project has been cancelled by BMW.
Just a big-mouthed owner.
