The C6 would not be coming as the owner is unwell. I dont think i would be coming the entire way, but to a certain point yes.

I hope you know this is a weekend plan and not a one day drive.

Just before you take a left turn from the highway towards Baner, there is side-road which is not used much. I think if you guys stop there for a few minutes, it will be good, since it won't hinder the regular traffic and enthusiasts like us can admire the hotties and take some pics, if permitted, in a relaxed mode.

Confirmed with the organizer, we'd be re-grouping after the expressway at Sadanand. That could be the best spot to see all the cars on the Pune side of it.

Most of the cars on Saturday would have also participated in the Supercar Roadshow in Mumbai. None of us would mind them being photographed.

So far I know of the following cars participating:

Gallardo
s2000
M3
M5
Z4
Corvette
911 Turbo
F430
There will be more that I may not know of yet (Bentleys, R8 etc)

There'll also be a few support cars and a flat-bed truck accompanying, just in case

Good to know that the Corvette will be there.

What about the red Ferrari 599 GTB, Ariel Atom, the yellow Murcielago LP640 from Pune, the Ferrari F430 Spider's, Aston Martin Vantage(the white one from Mumbai and the maroon one from Pune), the twin Aston Martin Rapides and the red Ferrari 348?

Just curious to know !!

Wow nice to hear the arrangements! It's well organised. Supporting cars and a flat bed truck are really important.
I guess it would be 40' flat rack.
