I didnt get any call and so we ve just decided to drive to the event without registering. I was just wondering if we could manage a couple of passes so we can enter the place and view the other exotics ?

Will call you when i am leaving in the morning (9am is reporting, so earlier) so we can all co-ordinate. We are taking the M5, Skyline GTR and Lp560-4 (still to confirm) for the event. I shall try and organise J's car to be in the display area.

There is a run later at 11am from Vidhan Bhavan to BKC (Bandra Kurla Complex) and back. So if anyone misses comming to the event they can catch the cars on the road.

The 560-4 sure should be a treat. A friend spoke to a guy who works in RR and was told that a lot of lamborghinis coming down this year. Im hopeful for a LP640.
Is the M5 Mr.B 's ? Greyish 666 ? I was offered to buy the car if its the same one im talking about.

Spoke to a Joshi today who s part of the organization committee he said to meet him at the entrance and he shall get us in. We probably will come slightly late after an all nighter from lonavala.

Guys expect to see a few jaguars and also the 370z that was launched earlier this month.

I might have to fly out tomorrow. But i will do all that is possible to push this to next week just so that i can make it there on Sunday. Though i am a late riser, i will try and rise early on 31st so that i can ping ALL the bhpians i know, to coordinate the time with them.
And if any bhpian is willing to become my alarm clock, please feel free to PM me.

I didn't expect this event to be held so soon this year. I'll have to give it a miss and i've been banging my head against the wall since i came to know about it. I was there last year and had so much fun. I hope some new cars show up this time other than the regulars.

I know who your friend spoke too. The Additions to the Lambo's are my friends Lp560 which has arrived from Delhi. So Total nomber of Lambo's should be 5 atleast.

Mr.S.B.'s M5 is yet to be confirmed by him. Two M5's confirmed are the Sky blue and the white.

Glad you recalled the guys,They would not have stopped you'll But i think the timing is important, so i suggest you try and make it by 9am atleast.

The white XFR is confirmed and the Purpleish blue one is yet to confirm. The 370Z was in Pune and hopefully will be there too. I drove her last Sunday and was a fun car.

Unfortunately not, do not want to build any hopes up. I can try and ask the organisers in the morning. I myself am riding with my friends.

This shall be my first SCI run. Hope to see some superb cars there.

Also, I just saw the Autocar India website, and their route Map is clearer. Posting a link below.

Link for their News Article: Parx Super Car Parade on Jan 31 | Autocar India

Link for the route Map: http://www.autocarindia.com/files/route1.jpg

I Guess the Best place to see these cars go quick is near Marine lines.
