Is there a factory manufactured RHD Z06? I know you can get them custom converted.

There also is the famous exceptions are always there. Say a Phantom is allowed but not a Cayanne Turbo, none are Supercars so why differenciate, when both meet the Bhp criteria of 400 horses. A friend was told SUV's do not meet the criteria.

What were you driving? Either way it's hardly surprising, that's a 560-4!

A few highlights of the show :

- The rally made me realise one thing. White cars were the least attractive cars and hardly drew any crowd towards them (except for the LP560, Phantom, and the GT Speed). The crowd was drawn more towards yellow and red cars and white was generally looked upon as a normal car (the BMW M's, XF-R, CLS, CL). I'm sure a white car would have stood out and attracted more attention in the night.

- The red carpet was beautifully laid out and that really gave a good effect to the cars that entered.

- All the cars were properly washed and polished (including tyres) for the show.

- The cleaners had a tough time keeping the Gallardo's clean since they were parked in a very dusty area. Everytime a car entered and revved, a lot of dust would fly and settle on the parked cars.

- The Ferrari 599, in my opinion, was the most beautiful car present at the show. The Lamborghini Murcielago was the most desirable car. No wonder these 2 were the most photographed cars.

- I wasnt there for the flag-off, but I guess that all the cars were flagged off together. It was really a site to see all the cars passing on Marine Drive.

I was waiting for the cars to return at marine drive. As the blue lambo went there were two police vehicles escorting it and one of the vehicles rammed his brakes suddenly. An M3 was speeding behind this police car and almost crashed into it right in front of me. He was lucky to have escaped because he turned the wheel of the car in time. He even screeched the brakes of his M3.

Nice event!

The Indian flag graphics on the Lambo were little too big. Something more subtle would have been nice.

Funny to see the guy with chauffer driven SLK with top down.

Looks like all the Pune Super cars were also present at this event. I can see 2 Lambo's and 2 Ferrari's from Pune in some of the photos.

He wasnt the only one. There was also a convertible 911 roof down with two ladies being chauffeur driven right in front of our Jaguar. The second lady could hardly fit in the rear

That was not the owner but a relative of the owner and not old enough to drive. The owner drove through the flagoff and then left.

Yes i saw that. It was a sight. This car comes to the club very often and it is chauffer driven with the guy even then. Very rarely do i see him drive her out of there (Chauffer always with him).

Was watching the Autocar show on UTV...and they said the most desirable car was awarded to the Gallardo LP560-4! Is it true or a mistake on their part?
