I am a plebeian not lucky enough to have got the chance to drive one of those Italian steeds yet. I will surely love to though. And what you suggested is absolutely correct but then men will be men,No power figure is enough to settle down our thirst, we will still be asking for better figures. haha. I mean not untill long back supercars came with with 500-550 hp and 0-100 in 3-4 seconds, and it sounded like a big deal to play around with. And now if we look around, even those supercars which are been manufactured in small warehouses and not by companies having years of heritage rolling with them, having nothing less than 600 hp and 0-100 timing south of 3.5 seconds

I agree men will be men, but then there are those who dont use the power and are happy knowing its there. In India even if you have a 2000 hp car, you would still be driving besides a Nano at the same speed, which is sad. I for one do consider Johns purchase as a good one and if i was in his place would do the same but retaining the cordelia rims.

With reference to the Rampal scene, someone please give a hard kick on the Indian media's backside. They ve done everything from a Toyota Hummer to a Audi G63 to a Gallardo V90.

And Redline Shooter, remember a thumb rule, never ever call a supercar underpowered. They are called supercars for a reason! And as for the LP550, from all the reviews I ve read, it is safe to term it as the most involving driver's car ever made. Even better than the 560 or the Aventador.

Sad to see how the owners get stalked and chased. I understand they are enthusiasts, hell even I am one, but then doesn't everyone have their limits to stay within?

While clicking pictures of stars and their super cars is OK but this act is definitely not justified. These people can actually irritate the person behind the wheels and bikers are also at risk as the rider is not concentrating 100% on riding rather he has his eyes on the sports car.

He does not have an exclusive only contract with Yamaha and can buy other brands as he has done in the past. Aprila in their conference wanted to hand over the bike to him and hence the pictures, he is not promoting anything for Aprila.

I know this is neither Boman's car nor an exotic, but just curious to know which car is it. I came across this pic on NDTV.

A LHD Toyota.

Imran Khan's Porsche Cayenne S features in the trailer of his new movie.
Obscure I know but still thought of posting it
Wonder if his Cali also features in the film.
