Black looks classy
I can picture the brother's black R8 and your R35 staring at each other.
Brother's envy, owners pride.

I would say a Veyron / Koenigg / Zonda / McLaren... prancing horse wont satisfy the hunger for speed. Moreover, he already owns an R8 and Lambo, adding a ferrari will not make an impact

So you are saying R8 sufices the need for ferrari? Ferrari wont satisfy the need for hunger? Are you joking?
R8 is pretty less powered compared to ferrari.
Ferrari would fill in the gap between LP and GTR. Veyron is way too expensive.

dude ur insulting Ferrari by saying it wont make an impact, please dont say that lol. that car was made to Race, The Lambo and R8 are Fast no doubt, but the kind of History you get by a Ferrari, you cannot by any supercar. as even the Lambo was made with the hopes to outperform the Ferrari.

I do not agree with you. In any way, Ecks is going to get Vayron (not in India but in Dubai, he mentioned in his earlier posts somewhere). No doubt, Ferrari is a dream car for every stable but Ecks showed his interest in either 599 GTB or 458 Italia. And honestly, I don't feel any of these two Ferraris "classy". Performance figures are awesome but I do not see a "classy" feeling of Ferrari with these two as I get from a F355.

"Class" is what matters more than hunger for speed IMHO. For speed, he owns a Lamborghini.

If you're going to claim something, at least make sure it makes sense and is correct. Ecks, never said that he's going to buy a Veyron, be it India or Dubai.

Sorry for not providing the reference in my earlier post . Please refer to post #89 in the thread "V10's garage" in pictures of Exotic Cars & Bikes spotted in India. May be Ecks himself can throw more information on this.

So the Only Ferrari according to you which is classy is the F355?Well then its your opinion and dont want to contradict that.
But i think your a bit lost here when it comes to ecks, because till what i have seen and read by him, hes buying these supercars for their sheer speed and performence(thats why their made and baught by most people) Not class.because he does not need to find 'class' from cars. other than that he has a Phantom and a Bentley if hes looking for class in his own garage.
I think the only reason hes not buying any Ferrari is because their not officially launched here in India,and he would not get full service support .guess thats what he once wrote and i read and still remember.
So if he takes your advice,he shouldnt even buy the GTR as hes buying it for the speed and performence and Not class.because in your opinion as you wrote class matters more than the hunger of speed?

Well, you are right at some points. That is my personal opinion about deciding between performance and class and it certainly varies from person to person. And GTR makes sense because it has recieved attention and admire from all around the world and most importantly, Ecks is getting official service support from Nissan in India.

Please pardon my ignorance, but how many of those "most people" are really able to juice out the performance from the supercar they just purchased?

Hey Ecks, don't mind buddy but I just wanted to express my opinion. This thread is all about your glorious garage, whatever supercar you buy, I am going to enjoy reading about it.

And please provide us stuff from the air stripe run to drool over.

Did i say Ecks cannot buy a veyron? Read the post carefully and then reply. Secondly its veyron not "Vayron".

Ferraris have made their mark in history and will keep on, living on planet earth you think ferraris are not classy! Anyways thats your opinion.

And if it would have been about "Class" as you put it, ecks wouldn't have bought a lambo or porsche or or any other sports cars, rather would have bought a Aston or maserati or bently continental Gt.
Anyways this is karan's thread so i don't wish to debate off topic.
