I just saw the video, too. Interesting perspective there, it was nice to relive all those mad moments again (I was sitting just under the camera mounted on the M3) like the Quattroporte flooring it, the sealink dash, the ABS-braking every few seconds, etc Some of the Atom's acceleration footage is really good.

I wish there was a lot less traffic... could have got a lot more fun footage then. Perhaps next time.

I'm glad that the GTR and Maserati provided a great soundtrack though.
And yes the way the Ariel accelerates is phenomenal, too bad it didn't get to really stretch its legs.

@Mitsun Soni - loved your pics and angles. (In the 599 wheel you can see a tiny reflection of the Maser's wheel too!)

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. Glad to know that you all liked the pictures. It already feels so good to be a part of Team-BHP

I was on one of the open jeeps provided to the media but unfortunately our jeep couldn't race up with cars and also got stuck in the traffic so we were behind all the cars for most part of the rally and hence I couldn't get some great shots. And to add to our dismay there was an end moment change in the route of the rally which our driver was not aware of.
Anyways I enjoyed the event and it was fun.

One of the F430s had an aftermarket exhaust right? What was it? It sounded really nice!!

I think even the 599gtb had a camera mounted at the back! Just saw some footage taken from it on the Autocar Show. Can someone post the whole video?

Karthik what amazing display of talent in terms of photography you have shown. Simply outstanding bro. keep up the good work & soon you will be a renowned International automobile photographer. I personaly enjoyed the Maserati exhaust the best. Afterall who was it done by? lol ahmm ahmm. Remember the drive? great composition of pics by Santosh too.
I loved the 348. The focus was refreshing. The GTR was a genuine threat to the European thoroughbreds.Both the phantoms lookd a class apart. Loved the jewelled spirit of ecstasy on the white one with the sparkling diamond at its bottom. what detailing! wow! the most outstanding piece was the T-Rex Aero 3s. saw it for the first time. absolutely a different world. Looks a light years ahead of any other car at the parade. very smart. The jaguars looked elegant. the corvette was neat. was it converted to a RHD or have the began to make one in RHD? the interiors of the blue M3 was something notable. the 430s represented a cult group and so did the Gallardos. The Arial Atom is a technological marvel and so looked the Lotus. The s2000 had the most striking paintwork. India's only gold sl55amg was a nice addition and sounded great too. The 458, 599, and LP640 may be brilliant machines and newer than the others but did not really look as gorgeous as the rest in my opinion to deserve the kind of hype they received. The rest of the BMWs Phantoms really cant compare when you see them all together in skin. Believe the grey M3 was supercharged? Must be one hell of a ride!

Kartik, mithun, manish and MODS ,a big for those brilliant pictures ! For most of the petrolheads , ITALIA was the star. It truly was something different . But for me , The STAR will be either the white Lambo , and the Corvette !

So what part do you play in Racetec? The car carried their branding and i believe they had done the mods on it.

I am sure you know your cars well enough to know that the Corvette is not made in RHD by the factory.

Yes it is supercharged and is more than just one hell of a ride under the more than capable hands of Insideman.
