Amazing pictures and a great video Dante! Good stuff!

The first picture looks absolutely smashing! Where was that shot? You must be having the time of your life with the Croc! Anyway.. any news and updates on modifications? Have you trashed the idea of powder coating the wheels?

Totally amazing pictures complemented by fly-by videos!!

200kph fly-by on that narrow road was amazingly thrilling!!

Congrats on the yellow beast and drive safe!

great pictures of Yellow Beauty. Just loved them.

Can I put in one more suggestion for a fly by video, if you don't mind? Take the car to a good country road where no one passes your way (I am just modifying your latest fly by video), grab a good digital camera so that we don't miss the closest frames of the fly by, and ask the person holding the camera to stand a few steps back from the road. That would be some absolute drool stuff.

Beautiful video none the less but would be much better if you would try it as I suggest.

PS: I think your car has Bose ICE system! Is it?

So is general public allowed at the event? Is it similar to the Parx Mumbai supercar show last year? And can we expect some niche supercars there?

Hey Dante! Saw your Cayman S up close yesterday at the event. It is damn beautiful! I was around your car for a lot of time but couldn't spot you. Anyways, how was the drive?
