LaFerrari Drives Onto The Streets Of Mumbai

Written By:

Every year Gautam Singhania gets an incredible piece of machinery to India as the showstopper of his Parx Supercar Show. 2015 will mark the seventh edition of the rally, which is getting bigger year on year. This year there will be super bikes present at the event as an additional attraction.

The main attraction for this year is a beauty that has travelled from Italy. It will be the very first time this hyper car will have laid rubber on any street in India. The Italian masterpiece is a limited edition model and Gautam Singhania has brought it to India for a special showcase.

At the 2015 Parx Supercar Show the show stopper will be the LaFerrari. We really wonder if anybody can bring something more exciting to this years show. The hypercar will be kept on display for all from 10th of January, 2015. The sad part is that the LaFerrari won't be driven in 11th of January, 2015.

The story continues in the next slide.

The 2015 Parx Supercar Show is set to commence with a showcase of all vehicles on 10th January, 2015. While the drive from Mahalaxmi Racecourse is scheduled for 11th January, 2015. This year Gautam Singhania has a special treat for supercar enthusiasts of Mumbai.

Gautam Singhania has been able to get Italy's limited edition LaFerrari for his seventh Parx Supercar Show. The ‘Prancing Horse' will be on display at Mahalaxmi Racecourse and entry is free for every motoring enthusiast.

LaFerrari is the first hybrid hypercar, which is also a limited edition model. The codename for this Italian project was F150 and only 499 models have been made, out of which none remain. It is an exclusive piece of machinery and only costs 1.69 million USD.

LaFerrari sports a 6.3-litre V12 engine, along with an electric motor for an additional boost. The engine is paired to a 7-speed dual clutch automated manual transmission. Italian engineers have managed to extract a combined power output of 900 horsepower. They have also managed to keep the weight of their hypercar to a minimum—it weighs less than 1000 kilograms.

Ferrari's latest creation uses loads of technology from Formula One. It boasts of a 350 km/h top speed, however, it can do more if pushed to its limits. It will share the stage this year with Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Porsche, Mercedes, Lamborghini, Rolls Royce and many more at 2015 Parx Supercar Show.

Gautam Singhania, Chairman and Managing Director, Raymond Limited and Founding Chairman of Super Car Club, expressed,"It gives me immense pleasure to host the 7th edition of Parx Supercar Show as it offers car enthusiasts an opportunity to witness some of the best Supercars in the country."

He further added, "This year we are delighted to showcase La Ferrari for the first time in India, and we are confident that it will be a visual treat for all car fanatics. It's encouraging to see that with each passing year, the popularity of the show is soaring by leaps and bounds, and we are confident that this annual fiesta will only become bigger and better in years to come."

So if you want to take a look at Ferrari's masterpiece up close and personal, head down to Mahalaxmi Racecourse on 10th January, 2015 for a once in a lifetime experience. If luck favours you, you may witness Gautam Singhania firing up his LaFerrari.
