Cars that I saw,

Z4- 1 blue, 1 red and 1 white

Red F430

Black Boxster S

M3- 1 grey and one white & the Orange Gallardo were parked on the highway, I guess, and I could catch a glimpse of these only while they were zooming-off.

And a pleasant surprise that caused a mini mass hysteria was the balloon white LP640 with black Hermeras.

Sorry, no pics. My phone's cam is no good.

Please add to the list if there were any other cars that I missed.

I also vaguely saw the tail of a white/blue soft-top.

Although the Drive did not include the "supercars" that we expected - it was still a treat to the eyes. We were on our way to Panvel when at Chembur we encountered a flat-bed truck honking behind us. After giving him way my brother noticed there was something orange at the back of the truck. One look was enough to confirm this was Gautam Singhania's orange Lamborghini Gallardo. The car was being transported to Panvel on the falt-bed. It was covered in the original Lamborghini cover which had opened up from behind.

We reached Panvel McDonalds at around 12:15 PM and were busy eating upstairs when we see a 430 Coupe passing on the other side of the road. The car entered McDonalds drive-way and grabbed everyones attention. Everyone was busy taking pics of the 430. We too took some pics and waited for the rest of the cars to arrive. A couple of meters from McDonalds on the main road, we then noticed the same flat-bed parked on the road. The car was missing and we immediately realised it was unloaded. The car was parked behind the truck completely covered. Behind it was the Honda S200 which was covered in some indian cover.

We chatted up with the guys who had got the Gallardo and wanted to know whether the 458 would be coming for the drive or not. But the answer was no :( We waited for a few more minutes and were getting a bit impatient on what other cars were in store for us.

We then see 3 cars coming in a line and entering McDonalds. 3 BMW Z4's - white red and blue. It really looked as if they were driving in sequence They parked also in the McD lane one behind the other.

Meanwhile the Gallardo was uncovered and parked right outside on the main road near McD. The crowd moved from the 430 to the Z4 and then to the Gallardo. I guess GS is really very particular about the cleanliness of his car. Wherever the car was left unattended, it was covered.

Then came the 2 M3's - Insideman's grey and another white M3. Your M3 sounded great insideman.

The last to arrive was the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. And did he arrive in style - Yes The car arrived, the owner parked right in the middle of the road and the driver and passanger got off and entered McD. The car was left with a bulky security guard. And everyone was hovering around the LP40, the car has amazing presence. A lot of people were heard asking if Abhishek Bacchan drove the car here.

^^Any more pics of the LP640 with the group?
Btw, saw GS driving the S2000 with the hood down, even though it was drizzling a bit in Koregaon Park. At the same time saw a blue Boxter going towards Westin. And in Kondhwa saw a Quattroporte!

Ak.apoorv stop teasing us and give them all to us now, will ya? Seems like you had a great time! And if you have some pics of the LP, it'll be a real treat.
EDIT: Insideman, your M3 is a real treat. Did you at any time embarass the LP?
EDIT2: v12, thanks for the pics! It steals the show, no matter what else is there!
