@ecks: sorry for using your thread to discuss un-related stuff. Can't wait to see what your next buy would be. What exhaust are you getting for the LP? Hamann? And can't wait for the new pics of all the cars in your stable. Hints about whats coming. Please?

New rims!? the same or you changing the design?

Sorry, but which exhausts do you have on the M3?

I dont think its GTR as Ecks told its a surprise even after people guessing the same,and i dont think its SLR722 as he didnt know its available in rhd.
But then the question is what else it is. Back to the old gueses-Maser,AM?
Or by any chance an Evo X?

@ecks : Sorry for going off topic. Pardon me please. No offence taken I hope.

@unknown : even I thought about an evo X and am Impreza Wrx Sti. But will it be a really good stable mate to those already present. And as for Ecks' feedback on his own mystery car, he says that it'll be the fastest in India. That is why I guess it is not the Evo.
And even if it is, it might face an inferiority complex!

P.S: im really confused about one thing, Mclaren is based in the UK, and the mcmerc slr is made in the uk aswell. why then were there no RHD slr's before??

The Mercedes Benz McLaren SLR is a German car. McLaren is just a tag name that they used to promote their F1 Heritage (I'm not entirely sure about this) But McLaren as a company by itself is British.

Errrrrm, no, the car is built in Portsmouth by Mclaren. The oily bits are made by Mercedes but the car was designed and developed at Mclarens tech centre in Woking. Mercedes owns 40% of Mclaren

Is this the mystery car?
Ecks: At least give the country of the car's origin

Karan isn't the type to have a front engined japanese supercar, I think . Gotta admit though, the LF-A looks smashing. And he mentioned there are already a few examples in the country. My best bet would be GT-R or a tuned f430.

My take on the L FA is that its too pricey.... an F430 would be sweet! especially when modded

Everyone is very very very close to guessing what it is. I can't tell the specs or country of origin because it will be too obvious then. Just hold a few more days people. Lemme pay the amount and once it is en route, I will disclose it.
