NOPE...friend of mine here in Mumbai kicked some poor soul's butt for hitting his H2 here in Mumbai...well sadly was the other dude's fault, the Hummer was unharmed, some paint of the other car was seen on the bumper
It's all fixed now...

Guys, no offence meant to anyone, but I do feel we've had enough supercool pics of the orange Gallardo and 2 F430's. Now, how about pics of the Integra?! ;-)

I disagree !! We can never have too many pics of the F430s

Saw a white SLK 250 in the morning near Ulsoor & a Red Supra near Symphony. The Supraz not the one Manish has posted as the alloys were different. Sorry no pics, was feeling too lazy to click pics.

Spotted the same SLK 250(?) last night near Ulsoor and was being driven by a dude who had a nice shiny head and the co-driver was a kid.
Silky silver color and was KL-12 registered.
No pics was busy checking his controls on the dashboard .

hey guys,
saw the white supra (69) ripping like crazy today!!
i was all excited after seeing him rip.
and then after a few hours (after dinner) as i was going back home saw the red f430 come down lavelle road !!
followed him for a while! he was ripping tooo much!
today was the fastest i saw him in city!
i'm short of words, he was ripping, getting through traffic quickly !
was out of this world.
and donno what but his car was sounding very different and way better!
i'm not sure if it has something to do with the "mode" he was in but it was fantastic!!
cheers !!

Can't be a 250 since no SLK ever came with that nomenclature. Should be a 350 or a 200 or a 230.

I heard from a friend that this red F430 car has performance upgrades and is now pushing 520+hp. Manish, How do you keep finding these supercars? What's your secret man?

Man, you are our Car Hunter of the Year! Buddy have you had the privilege of listening to the exhaust note of the LP or have you ever seen one ripping across town? If you have, please share that exp with us as I am desperate to know the details!

I think this old post of mine may sum up things a little dude:

The LP, if revved hard, goes almost a little absurd. It's even got delicious low-end growls, but the high-end revving is just a treat. Idling sounds are quite meaty. The noise of this beast booms EVERYWHERE...trust me, it leaves people stunned.

The 430 certainly is higher than the LP in my opinion and from what I've heard. Tubis make it sound perfect, but even otherwise, this thing is quite intense. It' a little more sophisticated than the LP at low-end revs, but sounds great when higher.

LP wins the vote for me due to its sheer insanity.

-----------------------------------------------------------

It was racing a 997 GT3 outside Hyde Park. It was the limited edition Versace version with US plates. It was immense. There's a pic here somewhere!
