Super Car Club – SCC and AutoCar India successfully organized Parx Super Car Show in Mumbai earlier today. Around 100 supercars participated in the parade which kicked off Riding School, Mahalakshmi Race Course. Mr Gautam Singhania, MD & Chairman, Raymond is also the founding Chairman of SCC.
Mr Singhania said, “The Parx Super Car Show series could be said to have triggered the interest for super cars in India, not just amongst auto enthusiasts but also among the common man. In 2009 when we started the Club, we saw that interest in super cars was driven predominantly by individual passion. Today, within three years, we are witnessing a growing drive amongst super car owners to participate in similar format shows, and a larger following of auto enthusiasts who are tracking the growth of SCC and its events in various cities. Such growing interest in super cars in India is very encouraging. To cater to this interest this year, we have more than 80 super cars participating in the show.”
Mr Singhania and Mr Hormazd Sorabjee, Managing Editor, AutoCar India organized the first ever Parx Super Car Show in India in 2009. The idea behind the Super Car show was to bring Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Ariel Atom, Porsche, BMW, and many others in public eye. Mr. Sorabjee, said, “As India’s leading auto magazine, it is our endeavour to create such experiences for car enthusiasts and we are delighted that the Parx Super Car Show in only its fourth year has grown dramatically.”
Mr Gautam Singhania further said, “We are receiving innumerable requests from proud owners of super cars across India to organize similar shows in their respective cities. We hope to grow the Parx Super Car Show from strength to strength and take it across many cities in India as possible, thus strengthening our connect with other super car enthusiasts across the country. This growing interest for super cars in India is also reflected in the increasing number of super car manufacturers entering the country and the F1 track that is now coming up in Noida.”
