Correction in Bombay and not yet sent to Kolkatta.
I was just getting onto the reclamation promenade from bandra (was going out of bandra towards WEH) and just as i completed the curved turn onto the promenade, the Porsche passed at a speed of easily 140+ (he approached from the sea-link) . When we got off the promenade onto the kalanagar flyover of the WEH, what do we see ???? - On the extreme left lane of the highway stood the Yellow monster 458 Italia & the Porsche went right beside it and stood. They were revving away to glory and blasted off. The Ferrari already stood on the highway when i reached there behind the Porsche so apparantly ,he had smoked the Porsche and was waiting for him over there.
& speedy, i missed the GTR and M5 because- They weren't there
It was just the 2 of them. May the other 2 stopped off at worli.
No matter which Ferrari or Lamborghini around, i would NEVER miss spotting an M5

i don't think the Ferrari would smoke the turbo...they are about the same. there was a video on youtube of the noble, turbo and 458 and some other car sls i think... the turbo was faster than the 458 surprisingly ... but i love the 458 in yellow. its a gem!

Hi,

Spotted GS driving the same at Peddar Road yesterday morning. Was he enjoying ripping the car. The exhaust note was to die for.

Guys,

all you living in bby are pretty lucky to get to see these cars around. There are only a few beautiful cars here in Ahmedabad and most dont even leave their drive ways except some occasions.

Now pls somebody out there go and get the pics of the Italia pls.

I guess there is a possibility that the 458 could be displayed at the upcoming ACI Performance Show in November. The Supercar Club of India generally displays a few cars every year.

Stunning machine. Yellow looks oh-so striking on the Italia.

Somebody please post high resolution pics of this Fezza.

Gorgeous car! This guy has an awesome taste of cars. Is that yellow a matte finish or a metallic finish?

Though i am no expert at spotting the difference in colour finish, when i saw it below all the highway lights late at night, it surely looked metallic to me.
