It all started with this... The Machine... A 4 Cylinder Audi A4... 2.0 Liter mofo pumping approx 200 bhp...


After playing Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed, I was into racing! and cars! Thats when I found out that Porsche is what my ultimate thing in life is! It may sound stupid, but hey! haven't you seen my first page? Look again, here is the link...

Then when I came to Germany, I realised, all the tracks in the game were actually real locations around Europe!! OMG! I so wanted to go to these places, and what better way to do so than on a Porsche! I knew we could rent cars, any make provided you cough up the required money! And a Porsche is worth the money you spend... Its the best there is!

And no matter how long you work, in what so ever position you work, it is IMPOSSIBLE for us to by a Porsche in an entire lifetime... Because, a Porsche Carerra GT costs around a whoping 100000 Euros!

So... my funda was to rent a classy car and go to some place in Germany! But, life is not so simple! I was in Germany and had the money to do it... I was so close to realising my dream! That ultimate thing in life was coming to be a reality! And that too when I am just 22 years old!! It felt like I hit jackpot! But, no!!

One can't rent super car of a Porsche just like that!! Yeah! Else it would be too simple! And every mofo Tom, ba(bad ass) Dick and sob Harry would boast about driving a Porsche... So, now, I'm satisfied that when I get to ride a Porsche, I will deserve it!! :) so near yet so far... now, i will wanna drive it even more! i like this! i wanna wait and do it when i'm good for it!

But never the less, we rented the machine... It is a splendid car!!

And... we chose to go to Schwarzwald! That was a good decision! :)

It was an awesome trip...
Started at the Europe Car rentals...
I'd booked a car for the trip... and went to collect it... Boy gave us an A4 with navigation system after a 20 minute delay... When I had the key of an Audi in my hand, I couldn't help but smile! That thieve kinda smile!

And he told us to go to their garage and on the place no.44, the car would be there!

"oh! ok! thanks! Isn't anyone going to be there? just to tell us how to use the car?"
"You know how to drive right?"
"yes, Offcourse!"
"Then just go down and you will find the car!!
There will be no one there!"
"oh! ok! well... thanks again! and see you!"

and... there it was... the Audi A4... in the underground parking lot... which was a lot under! a coupla floors under for the trains and 'locals'... then a couple more for car parks etc!

We sat inside... and... my god! I was in a German car!! Took some time to figure out how the navigation system works, in English and then headed off towards our home. We didn't have a clue about the route back! just followed the Navig system! it was dark and we didn't even know where we were going! No glitches, we reached safe and sound... just a couple wrong turns... u know, coz i'm so used to left side driving! :)

the next morning...

started out trip... and had to get into the Autobahn! The mutter of all roads in the world! the name itself is sufficient! The only place in the world with no speed limits!! I played safe and stuck to some speed limits. 130kmph minimum! :) since it was my first time, i wanted no pain! So gently I entered... the Autobahn... and slowly eased the throttle... and the 2 liter diesel engine roared and accelerated off... from the 50kmph max limit on the entry lane to the 130kmph min speed Autobahn!
Slowly i engaged the clutch and changed to 3rd, 4th, 5th....
and 6th gears... ooh! oooh! oooooh!!
The anticipation... the acceleration... the sensation... it is unbelivable...
Though the first time, i wanted more!
First time is always fun... you find everything so new and pure and sexy! so i decided to just GO FOR IT...

so... i entered... this time, to the left lane, the fastest of em all... throttle going down... engine reving up... and the speedo read 130... 140.. 160... it was like a miracle... so gentle, yet so much! in just 5 minutes!

Then came... ... ... the time for the exit... from a 160 odd to 50kmph... the ABS continuously pumping them brakes to keep us stable and not slide off track under such inhuman braking... gentle? u bet!

This was the autobahn... and our trip was to the schwarzwald! it had just started!! we drive into the start of the black forest... and took a 250 km long circular route which goes through the wald... called Schwarzwald Bäderstraße... and then my dream started materializing... vast forests... and german homes here and there... and at some places beautiful fields and grasslands... cows! yes cows grazing in the fields... and lumber mills... everything picturistiqe!

then... i had an idea... why not go off road?! so... we headed off into the woods... on a non road... the ESP working hard to kick in enough traction to keep us on the slippery track! and in front of me... i had a dejavu... i've been here before! yes!! this place... ooh! so cool!!

thanks to the NFS 5 boys! a classy job they have done!! they mofoin RULE!

We continued the journey... now, back on road... so much of stuff to look at and i was on the steering wheel looking forward, lest i get into trouble! its my first time u see... and i only had little protection...
in the form of insurance... still i was liable for 500 euros of damage!

the track was twisty... and i was doing a 80kmph average... with top speeds reaching upto 140kmph at times... it was wonderful... every curve i hit, the tyres resisted with a screeching moan... and the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) worked harder... its always fun to push harder! you know it! you've wanted it!! I entered into tunnels and drove around cliffs... it reminded me of Corsica...


and then... on sunday, I entered into France... just across the border... it was like coming from malleshwaram to mariappan palya... just a bridge seperating the two countries... at this point, the navig system went blank! coz i only had a german CD!

but today was not first time! so, I knew my way around... and I headed on... on the banks of Rhine... on some highway... it was faast! 120kmph on small roads... and then slow down to 30kmph when u enter cities! and this was like Avurene! tight corners inside cities, in front of houses! NFS 5... aaaah! so sexy!

and driving through fields like pyrenes and normandie! wow! the entire NFS 5 coming into reality...

except for monte carlo and zone industriale... aah... greedy me!

and... then... time to get back to stuttgart! towards the Autobahn A5... the ultimate driving experience... its one of a kind! no where in the world can you get such class... such speed... such precision...

I hit the no max-speed-limit zone... and i had a wicked smile on my face and the throttle under my foot...

go baby go! it was vrooooom... 130s dissapeared to 140s... and 150s and... 160s! not like the first time, where i was unsure... here i was reckless... fuk protection... fuk everything...

lets just do it...

the adrenaline was there... more more! this aint nothing... back to 5th gear and the engine gave a warning roar... but the throttle put that down... more more... 160... 170... 180... comeon... lets just get to the climax...

i pressed harder... moving to top gear... and then... i had to brake to slow down as the guy in front was slow... :P
he moved out of my way... and then... it was game on... back to business...
140s... 150s... 160s...170s... 180s... it was in a jiffy... just a press of the throttle... there was that connection now... more space... 190s... and then... the climax... 200kmph... everything was flying by... cars, sign posts, boards, more cars, opposite traffic was just no match...
their 140kmph plus my 200kmph = 340kmph relative speed... just a whoosh... and... this wasnt the climax... there was more in reserve... a yellow ferrari... i knew it was a ferrari as i saw it approaching... opposite direction... fastest lane
(obvious)... and it was gone... i just saw it... thats all... not even for a fraction of a second... the sound waves never reached my ear... we were past that place at 200kmph and he... prolly at 250 or more! poor old sound waves...

this was the ultimate! and it was only on an AUDI A4!

i just cant wait to get into a Ferrari or a Lamborghini or a Porsche... only time will tell!
we drove an incredible 750kms from saturday to sunday...
