Suhaas, I am a college going final year student, so all cars are not for my use. I have the M3 and the LP for me, the Audi is my brother's car and the 7 is moms and the Bentley/phantom is dad's car.

The M3 is my dd, the LP a weekend warrior. Whatever we buy next will be an addition to the stable and not necessarily for a specific purpose.

Wow! You're very lucky. Looks like good taste runs in the family

Yes. I think Ferrari stopped building beautiful cars ever since the F355 went out of production. All the models that followed the F355 just manage to command lots of street presence. Modern Ferraris look like they've been designed for the sole purpose of shouting out that you're driving a Ferrari. Sorry, I might have offended plenty of Ferrari lovers here but that's just my opinion.

Yeah Ecks, I will be waiting for that too.

I don't think the Porsche 911 GT3 cup is street legal. It's strictly, a track day car.

Well, After reading a lot, i just wanted to say one thing.

Consider the cars which don't have problems similar to LP (serivce/road clearance). Why spend so much when you are limited to some particular area to enjoy it.

Its your choice but still, having much more practical cars can be a good idea and as you said you are going to States (correct me if i'm wrong), i think you can build a nice collection over there and you'll plenty of great roads to enjoy it too.

@V10: People want change and for those who can afford the beauty its all about being different. Parallels to the fashion industry, a suit is a suit but then why mess around with new cuts every season. Even poor Armani and Hugos of the world have to cater to this changing demand.

I find that all Ferrari had to face initial resistance due to passion, recently California was picked upon. I find the car to be a bit quirky with the bold design but soon it will be praised left right center. InsideLine already said that its radical design with porno view of the engine

1 of 38 RHD's made?? Is this going to be like 38 RHD's ever made, or just for a certain time period?

I guess if it's going to be 1 of the 38 made, they'll be charging you a premium?

I guess 38 RHD's only for the first batch of 2009-10. They have very limited production.

I don't think so, because Ecks said that he would get the car sometime next year.

Congrats Ecks. Dont think much on this one and just get it, soon yours will be truly a dream garage, only the SLS is needed here, will definitely want to see this one live and not only in pics.
I have seen some pics of your garage in some threads here but couldnt find a one which has all of these exotics uder one-roof, it could be a PS stitching as well, If you've posted this one somewhere then let me know the thread, I would definitely want to see this exotic supergarage. Congrats once again.

Ecks, Are you considering a silver SLS with classic red leather interior just like the classic 300 SL?
