Petrolheads in Mumbai are sooooooooo lucky, for a clutch of exotics cruising on the streets must have been quite a sight. I really, really wish this kind of stuff also happens in Chennai.

Oh you were? I was too busy trying not to get thrown around in the backseat of the M3 !! KBK and his friend were totally flooring it in bursts from Haji Ali onwards all the way to the end. Man, that Ferrari V8. Totally the greatest soundtrack in the automotive world, especially through the (Hamann?) exhausts.

Yeah man , glad you said it. I guess everybody here forgot how important a murci LP is in such an event. The LP would have been one of the fastest cars, if not THE fastest.
May be next time around I can make it , with the LP equipped with ear bleeding Hamann exhausts/sport cats and a tuned ECU.

EDIT - The Atom does not count as a car. . If it does , get me one too , or better still , a caterham!

What a wonderful way for a car lover to spend a Sunday morning and afternoon. It was the biggest turn out of Sports and Supercars in Mumbai till date. From the Italian beauties to the German giants, they were all there basking in the sun.

The morning began with Arpandiv picking me up from my place at 8.30 pm. We proceeded to Bandra where we were joined by dhirajs and flyingspur. Reached Worli and hooking up with was michaelschume. We stopped over at Essar House since dhirajs wanted to pick up the Mobile Store RR Phantom. I tagged along with Dhiraj in the Phantom followed by Arpans Alto and Varun's awesome looking Palio GTX with Schumacher written all over it. Here are couple of pictures on the way to the venue:

We reached the venue where there was total chaos. There was an insane crowd and getting the cars into the paddock was quite a task. All the cars finally made inside after which there was a briefing for the participants of the drive which flagged off at 11 AM from Kalaghoda to Prabhadevi and back. I went shotgun with a friend in his Porsche Boxter S. Some pictures taken during the drive from inside the Porsche:

Thanked: Once

What a way to start a week. All I can say is why did'nt something like this happen before and now I can't wait for it to happen again.
The meet after the event was fun, the race was a big question mark as we all decided to make a move after it was Red Flagged which apparently turned out to be the right decision, and the Nano experience was good fun [those of you who were there know why]
And Akshay the picture you took through the rear windshield turned out to be way way better than what I was expecting with Arpan's car trailing the F430 if only the the logo was inverted ha.

p.s. hey guess we all forgot about the BMW M2.5

This had to be the best Auto event ever...missed it.
So many supercars at one place and that too in Mumbai. Great!

I think some cars were missing. Ferrari 599,Mustang,Aston Martin to name a few.

By the way which car sounded the best?

I'm not sure what was wrong with this 430 but it wasnt sounding like a Ferrari. The guy had his guards travelling in his RR Phantom.
