Hey friends, isn't this ecksreturns' cars. So going by this data the Lambo is no longer with him. Wonder why he sold it!

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious garage to say the least.
Getting James May's fizzing sensation
The M3 looks X rated !! and the GTR, and the R8 and the Jaaaag. He can have a one man car show. Singh is King indeed. To think the Phantom, the Spur, the 7 and the RR autobiography are still lurking somewhere.

I feel SO poor ! God give me just ONE of these beauties and the money to fuel and service them

The GTR is well a good project car and i feel that the second stage will be even better. As they said, stay tuned. although i feel the M3 will be quicker than the GTR but after stage 2.. not a chance... by the way that is the second ESS M3 in India... he is running 20s which isn't very advisable for the supercharger, better to run 18s with PS2s. Max 19s.
The GTR with the larger inter-cooler will run cooler which means faster and with the chip tune it makes a lot of sense. Thats 600 horses at the crank and the M3 will be running around 600 at the crank too, an evenly matched pair although the GTR may be quicker because its a paddle shift. But i'd prefer to run with the manual. ESS in any case would need the M3 in their workshop abroad if they had to install the s/c with a DCT car so this car is a manual. Plus the Manual is more fun!

Normally aspirated M3s with even bhp (despite lower torque) run always better lap times at the Nürburgring than the GTRs. And the M units seem to be more reliable too.

Interesting find. Curious to know if Ecks plans to race the monster in the future speedrun events. So much power can only be unleashed on the track. On public roads its just insane to even try.

WOW! What a brilliant garage Ecks has got! And finally we got to see the latest pics from the garage . The M3 with the BBS wheels and ESS supercharger is probably one of the hottest E92s I've ever seen!! The DBS is sheer beauty! But I am most excited to see the final results of the mighty GTR. 0-100 in less than 3? 1000+ bhp? Oh man, can't wait to hear the roar!

sorry raging bull the car is not 1000bhp... it says the new intercooler is capable of handling 1000 bhp. The car has a chip tune. its 600BHP. read my earlier comment. Hopefully that will clear your doubts.

^It says he 'had' one of the first LP640s in India. Moreover there are pics of all other supercars except the Lambo. If it had been still in his garage the photographer would have surely snapped it .

The most timeless garage and my dream garage by far in India. Perfect collection. The addition of the Nissan GT-R, the Jag XF-R and the RR Autobiography have just added more taste to the garage. The black M3 looks like a stealth fighter on prowl and the Godzilla is just smashing with those lovely black wheels.

Is it confirmed that the arancio LP640 has been sold? If so, any idea where it is now?
