A track - well given the number of people i have spoken to interested in building a track, not too far away from mumbai, i reckon its not a distant dream anyway.
SCI guys will have something to cherish about.

Last I knew Autocar/Hormazd don't own a car worth 1 crore or above 400 bhp. I think membership perhaps would be for anyone who wants to like anywhere else in the world! Anyway to each his own.

That would leave out the Porsche 911s I think, because they come in under 1c.

OK, now what if I bought a second hand 360 Modena for 90 lakhs?

Definetly more worthy than a brand new Benteley CGT. I see some gray areas here.

If it was only one instead of both criteria, Jitu would qualify with a few tweaks to his turbo

I am sure just having a supercar is not enough. You need to be able to pay SuperCar Club fee too, which I am sure wouldn't be very cheap.

Every airport is an awesome dragstrip. Unfortunately there is no way you can get to use the runway in any of the metros.

In that case, i guess the criterion to be a member is the car has to be above 400bhp, OR has to cost over 1 crore.

Except for just the 911 Carrera, all other Carrera's are above a crore. But none are above 400bhp. It has to be the Turbo & GT3 to fulfill both criterias. They have to sort that out to get as many 911's.

I don't understand. Why are we speculating? Let's just wait for official information and not waste our time in speculating what's gonna make it and what's not.

I agree with Ecks. Let's just wait and see what are the official requirements.

Yes, I guess that would be the general criteria for anyone to be a part of the club. There would definitely be much more to the rules other than 400 bhp and 1 crore. Rather than speculating, we could offer some suggestions to the Supercar Club. Lets hear them from the Team-BHP Supercar club - liv2drv, ecks, v10, RG etc.

I have a friend of mine who does not have a sports car, forget about the 1cr and 400bhp machine that is spoken off. He is a member of the super car club. Myself and my brother would also be a part of the club not owning any of the above, so it all boils down to wait and see what comes up. The website is also under construction so till the official announcement like Ecks mentioned lets wait and see.

I would be glad to pass on any suggestions by our members.

The first one i have done is to have classifications for the term "Super car" for India. An 84 Mustang does not come in this category but it is yet in the club. Most of us know the car so this would help give a better understanding of the going ons.
