the pictures were awesome, wish i could have been there.

the picture with the 4 lambos side by side is absolutely spectacular, what a sight it must have been. 4 italian v10's, damn.

i have heard the LP rev here in pune and arguably it is one of the best sounding engines on the planet.

love the helmet the guy riding the can am was wearing, look closely it has rossi's face.

Complete report to be edited in this thread..... with pics.

Report : Supercar Club of India Supercar Show 2010

The Venue
All in all, this rally was one of the most organised rally in Mumbai. It was very well organised, they had good participants, guards behaved well - a very good job Hormazad, Gautam and all the event organisers. One more important thing that I noticed was that the venue and the event layout was arranged in such a way that it was easily accessible to viewers and even participants. There was not much of chaos like the last time. The guards handled the entry and exit points very well and there was no delay for the cars coming through. Even though we did not have a pass, we managed to get some good pics (although not detailed) of all the cars present. There was heavy security and bandobast at the event and even on the entire route. The only problem was that the entrance of the venue was quite dusty and the drivers had a tough time keeping the Lamborghini's parked at the entrance clean. Everytime a car revved, a lot of dust settled on the cars parked at the entrance.

The entrance to the venue. Red-carpet welcome for all!

The Cars at the venue
The cars started pouring in right from 8-30 AM and most of them were Gautam Singhania's car. We (Gordon, a friend and myself) reached Peddar Road at around 8 and found the Panamera being prepared for the rally. On the way we also seen almost a dozen Mahindra Classic and Gypsy's and wondered if they had arranged a rally for themselves. Its later when the flag off took place that we realised what these SUV's were really there for. A little later we reached Marine Drive and started searching for the venue. Took the directions from Dippy and went off in search. En-route we spotted the CLS 63 and SL63 waiting outside INOX. The people there informed us that there were waiting for the other Mercs to arrive. So we took some pics and directions and headed to the venue. When we reached the venue at around 8-30 AM only to find a few cars like the Bentley, CLS63 and the 123-registered F430 already present.

The "exotic" cars started rolling in at sharp 9 - starting with Guatam Singhania's entries - Lamborghini Gallardo, Ariel Atom, Lotus Elise, Ferrari 348 and the 1000bhp Nissan Slyline. Thankfully none of his cars were decorated with the Zapp or Park Avenue stickers (except for the Nissan). The next to turn up was Autocar India editor Hormazd Sorabjee, in Sanjay Dutt's Ferrari 599. This is the first time I was seeing the Ferrari 599 and I must say - Ferrari have indeed blended modern technology and a classic design to make the 599. I'm sure this design is not going to grow out on me - no matter what models replace the 599.

Then was the turn of the "sportscars" like the Cayman S (no offence Dante, your car really looked beautiful), the Nissan 370Z, the Jaguar XF-R and the Can-Am Spider. The reactions around the Can-Am was a mixed one and for a moment even the guards were wondering whether the 3-wheeler turned up at the wrong event. However this was not the only non 4-wheeler at the event.

The next lineup was one of the most amazing and rev-filled one. 3 Gallardo's turned up together one behind the other. The white LP-560, yellow Gallardo SE and blue Gallardo. It was really a sight to see and more so when I saw Dippy in the passenger seat of the LP-560.

Another amazing thing was the M-lineup. An M3 Coupe, M5 and M3 convertible. No honking - just revving seemed to have been the style there. But I must say the way the 3 cars revved at the entrance - it was amazing!

Anyways enough of talking and let the pics do the talking. Have around 500 pics of the event, but since most of the pics have already been posted, I will only post one pic of all the cars.

Once again - a big hand to Hormazd Sorabjee, Gautam Singhania and all the organisers who made this event a memorable one for everyone.

The mustang is a 6 cylinder not a V8. The GTR is not a V12 my friend.

The run was fabulous and for the people who were in doubt of the turnout, i guess the pictures and the entrant list speaks for itself. There were a few cars that joined in at the Procession but since they had not registered were not in the lot.
I myself did not get up at the appointed time so missed my rides to the Venue in the GTR or the BMW 645ci but had to settle for the Bentley CFS. The crowds were well behaved and there was good support from the Traffic police.
Brainstorming of ideas for the next run is already being done and trust me it is only going to get bigger and better.

Met many of our BHP brotherens and it was great to meet new faces and always a pleasure catching up with the old ones.

The guy tried registering it but the people at autocar said that this car is now out of production and so its not counted as a supercar.
If we are to go by the same perspective the 348 shouldn't be allowed as well right?

Those red carpet entry photos are awesome! Thanks for the coverage Dippy and v12. I was looking for BHPians there but couldn't identify anyone cuz i haven't seen anyone's faces yet. May be next time, a Team BHP t-shirt would be good

btw no one posted the pics of the official pace car of the event, Tata Nano?

Those who participated in the rally, what max speed did you guys do? and did you floor the throttle on the sea link or did you adhere to the speed limit? cuz in the driver briefing everyone was strictly told to be within speed limits and always be behind the pace car!
