Hello everyone

Im Dippy and Im from the city of dreams, Mumbai. Cars have been my first love ever since I was a toddler. I was born in Mumbai, spent a good amount of my childhood in Dubai and then back to Mumbai and been here ever since. Do some web designing and some freelance automotive writing to earn my two cents.

Being in Dubai as a kid exposed me to the world's finest automobiles right from the beginning. I credit my love for cars to this factor. I love supercars and I feel they are the epitome of engineering. I drool on cars from Maranello and Sant Agata, in short cars from Italy. They really do things with passion.

I have been lucky and fortunate enough to have driven some really exclusive and exotic cars like the Lamborghini Aventador , Ferrari 458 Italia, the Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale, Jaguar XKR-S to name a few. Those are memories for a lifetime.

Coming back to earth my daily drive, I drive an Old Honda City 2003 1.5 automatic which has clocked 1.20 lakh kms till date and still going strong. It is still one of the finest cars we have on road today.

I dream of owning a Ferrari 355 someday but then any Ferrari would do but I have immense respect and love for the Porsche 911. Till then working towards this goal. Lets see where life takes me.

Apart from the above, Im an avid music lover and music from the 80s and 70s is what you will find in my ipod. Love going to the movies, meeting new people and striking conversations. Im also a big foodie. I have also studied 4 levels of German and I am pretty good at the language now.

Not much a fan of the bat ball game, and I am a hardcore tifosi when it comes to Formula 1. There is quite nothing like watching a Grand Prix live at the circuit. Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher are my favourite drivers and I currently support Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen in the championship. Red Bull is a no no.

Well thats it from me then. Hope to have some interesting discussions on this forum and meeting more petrolheads.

Welcome to TAI Dippy hope you have a great stay here. So even you have spent a good time in Dubai your list of driving the exotics is way greater than mine. I have never driven any of these exotics but I have been driven around in a R8, F430, Cadillac Escalade EXT, Jeep Cherokee, Grand Cherokee SRT, X5 M, X6M, Cayenne Turbo and finally the Lumina SS (Vauxhall Monaro known in Europe) ignoring the corollas, altimas and camries of the Dubai Taxi [lol]

We are having a TAI member meet on the 26th at Lonavala it would be great to see you there.
