When Honda was attempting to pit their New Sportscar eXperimental against the best from Ferrari, they brought in their star F1 driver Ayrton Senna to thrash it around a track. But when he rather unexpectely dismissed the car politely as being fragile, the Honda engineers seemed to appreciate Senna for keeping it real. Senna's inputs were taken seriously and he was invited back a few months later to Honda's test sessions at the Nürburgring, where his inputs helped fine-tune the suspension and make the NSX better.

As Richard Hammond says, when Fiat wants to give their cars some extra zest, their brothers in arms at Abarth. Prior to 1972 though, Abarth was an independent company and this 3000 Sport SE022, winner of the European Hillclimb Championship in 1971, was one of the last cars that Abarth built and raced.

The STi's 30th birthday week is still on. Also, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a dirty WRC car is a better looker than a clean one.

So early this morning in India, I found that Subaru Technica International (the STi that’s on some of my favorute race cars) just turned 30 on Monday (2nd April). And so, here are the STis from my stable.

Twin #7 WRC racers, an outtake from one of the shoots for #laldcarweek2018. The Subaru made it to the competition (and ended up winning 2 awards!), but by the time I got to the Evo, it got way too hot and bright for me up there and I ended up not doing individual shots (of the Evo) at all.
(Also, yes, I am milking this view from our roof, to the maximum extent possible)

When the Lamborghini Huracán Performante dropped in Geneva last year, it grabbed the headlines for smashing the long standing Nürburgring Nordschleife lap record for a production car, held by the Porsche 918 Spyder, by almost 5 seconds. This matte orange specimen from Tomica looks fabulous, with the Italian tricolore at the edge of the side skirts being a particularly special touch.

For the 7th day of #laldcarweek2018 over at @live_and_let_diecast, the Wildcard day, I chose the gold 1970 C111-II, experimental vehicle, super sports car and style icon from Mercedes-Benz.

For the 5th day of #laldcarweek2018 over at @live_and_let_diecast, aka Black Day, I chose to show off Majorette's take on Mercedes-AMG's 2 door fastback, the (rather unimaginatively named) Mercedes-AMG GT.

Congratulations to my favourite manufacturer of toy cars  for hitting the 12,000 follower mark for their Instagram account Down Under. One of the reasons they have such a loyal fan following, apart from the brilliant models (that VW Polo WRC is 🔥🔥🔥) is their fun social media presence. Go forth @majoretteaustralasia, the next target is 20k? No pressure! ;)
(Psst... I really want one of those Polo WRCs!)

Sheesh. I missed posting this here on time. But hey, better late than never. For the 2nd day of this #laldcarweek2018 aka White Day, I chose the most maniacal rally car of them all - the Lancia Stratos HF. Featuring the white, green and red Alitalia livery with yellow racing wheels & powered by a Ferrari V6 grudgingly approved for use by "il Commendatore" himself, the Bertone designed Stratos was the 1st car designed from scratch for rallying.

So I cheated. For the third day of the #laldcarweek2018 aka Blue day over at @live_and_let_diecast, I chose the Subaru Impreza WRC in classic WR blue mica *and* 
metallic gold. And if you wake me up in the middle of the night and ask me to name three cars that I lust after, this Subie will definitely feature in that list.

This mountaineering Mitsubishi Pajero (from the Majorette Racing series) was my 1st choice Red Day entry for the #laldcarweek2018 over at @live_and_let_diecast. 
Till I decided hours before the event, to switch & go with the Toyota GT-One. Wondering now if that switch was a good idea at all. Aah well! This will anyways go on #LaLD at some point.

The Toyota GT-One is one of the special cars in my collection & ticks off most of the boxes on my check list - the scale, the car type and the back story. So it is my entry for day 1 of the #laldcarweek2018 over at @live_and_let_diecast.
