A video of him performing stunts on the Bandra Bandstand has been uploaded by Traveller Viren on their YouTube channel. In this video, we see a yellow Ferrari 488 Pista supercar rolling towards the area where people have gathered. People soon recognize the car and the person driving it, and we can hear people cheering for Mr. Singhania. He stops the car in front of the arena where the track is wide, turns the car, and starts doing donuts in front of the audience.
People are excited to see the stunt and are cheering for more. When he stops after a couple of donuts, viewers ask him to do it again, and he obliges. Gautam Singhania can also be seen waving at the viewers every time he completes the stunt. Gautam Singhania is extremely passionate about cars, yachts, and planes. He has even participated in competitions. In 2014, he secured a place on the podium at the Ferrari Challenge held in Abu Dhabi. He also became the first Indian to register double podium finishes in the Ferrari Challenge EU series.
This is not the first time Gautam Singhania has been spotted having fun with his cars. In 2021, Mr. Singhania bought a Mach 1 Ford Mustang for Valley Run. This proper muscle car was finished in a shade of green. The exact specs of the car are not available; however, some reports suggest that it generated around 1,300 Bhp. Gautam Singhania was seen drifting in the muscle car. Along with the Mustang, he also performed stunts like drifting and donuts in his BMW E46 M3 fitted with an LS3 Supercharged V8 engine derived from the Chevrolet Corvette.
Gautam Singhania has a good collection of exotic, expensive, and rare cars in his garage. It looks like he has a soft corner for American muscle cars and has a decent number of them. Other than the Mustang, the billionaire businessman also owns a Pontiac Trans Am, Ferrari 348 GTB, McLaren 720S, Tesla Model X, a super-rare Ford pick-up-based hot rod which is a left-hand drive vehicle, and many more cars in the UK and UAE.
Coming to the details of the 488 Pista seen here in the video. The Ferrari is powered by a 3.9-liter turbocharged engine that generates around 710 bhp and 770 Nm of peak torque. It was named as the most powerful V8 engine in the history of Ferrari. The power is sent to the rear wheels, and the top speed is limited to 340 kmph. Coming to the showrun, Red Bull hosted the second showrun in India after almost a decade. David Coulthard, a 13-time F1 race winner, was also present at the event, and he was driving the RB7 F1 racing car which was driven by Sebastian Vettel in 2011.
