The 7th edition of the Parx SuperCar show concluded last Sunday, with more than 100 super cars having been showcased. Day one (Saturday) of this 2-day annual extravaganza was a visual treat for thousands of Mumbaikars, who visited the RWITC, Mahalaxmi Race Course to catch a glimpse of these stunning beauties. Day two (Sunday) saw around 100 Super cars along with 25 Super participate in glittering convoy that took the following route: Turf Club – Haji Ali – Peddar Road – Babulnath – Chowpatty – Marine Drive – Nariman Point – Marine Drive – Peddar Road – Haji Ali – Worli Sea Face – Sea Link – U Turn Under the Bandra East Flyover – Sea Link – Worli Sea Face – Haji Ali – Turf Club.
Amongst the most admired super cars were the Lamborghini Huracan, BMW M3, Aston Martin DB9, Rolls Royce Drophead, Lamborghini Aventador, Ariel Atom V8, The American Hot Rod and the Nissan GT-R amongst others.
But the show-stopper for this year was undoubtedly the LaFerrari, which sat pretty by itself in a separately enclosed area, searing eyeballs with its trademark Rosso Corsa paint-work. The LaFerrari is the most ambitious car launched by Ferrari is the first ever production car to be equipped with the F1-derived hybrid solution – the HY-KERS system – which combines the power of an electric motor producing over 161 bhp with the most powerful incarnation yet of Ferrari’s classic V12. The 6262cc V12 produces 789 bhp and including the electric motor produces a total of over 950 bhp, that endows it to reach a staggering maximum speed of 350 Km/Hour. 100 km/hr is dispatched in under 3 seconds, while a 7-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission sends power to the rear wheels.
Commenting on the success of the 7th edition of the Parx Super Car Show, Gautam Hari Singhania (below), Chairman & Managing Director, Raymond Limited and Founder & Chairman of Super Car Club said, “Parx Super Car Show always has the tradition of bringing together the most elite super cars thus, making it the biggest and the only super car event in India.
