The events saw a lineup of super cars which was led by Mr. Gautam Singhania who was at the fore front of the parade as the vehicles made their way across the city. Hannu Mikkola was the Guest of Honor at the events and was called upon to flag off the parade. Among the exclusive lineup of luxury cars spectators got to see the latest of Ferraris, Mercedes Benz, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, Rolls Royce, Bentleys and Porsches. These prized models wound their way across Marine Drive, Bandra Worli Sea Link, and onto the Western Express Highway to Santa Cruz and back to the venue.
Gautam Singhania handed over prized to the most desirable cars. This show was initially conceptualized and organized by Singhania himself first in April 2009. Following its success, he also launched the Super Car Club in June 2009 along with Mr. Hormazd Sorabjee, Managing Editor of Autocar India. The only unfortunate incident during the rally was an R8 catching fire at the Bandra-Worli Sealink, and self destructing in a matter of minutes. The Audi R8 in question was not a part of the Super Car Club (SSC) or the show.
