Well, talk about Fiat's resale value

Jokes apart, he is one lucky bloke. The mere specs of this machine gets me interested in it. But alas, Fiat is pricing it astronomically.

. Thats a good one. But I think its more do with his remuneration for the entire trip. I believe there might be some adjustment of his remuneration with the price of the car. But then again, dont know if his "verbal agreement" with them will materialise.
What a life eh? Live a dream and get paid for it as well !

If you go by this article, it seems that Fiat is planning to localise Bravo to bring down the price. I guess this will be a sensible move.
Fiat India drives into lifestyle segment- Auto-Specials-The Economic Times

As you say, living a dream and getting paid for it is great!

Ok guys. Firstly i think you all owe Farhaad Arora(Agent4ferrari) an apology. I am close to him and also to the "Young Man" from National Garage, and YES for HEAVENS SAKE they do import ferraris and maseratis!. Infact they even give you a warranty!. Technicians fly down every now and then from singapore and get these cars repaired/serviced etc at nationalgarage mahalakshmi. If anyone has a doubt about these guys capability read my threat on "I caressed a Maserati Gransport..." here on tbhp. Heres now it works!. Ferrari always works on an allocation(i'm in the auto industry so believe me..i'm ur most credible source..) They work on a cap on production annually. If they cant produce more than X they dont expand their distribution. Which means Farhaad has to buy from a country that has the allocation. Hong she(wrong spelling) offers to back the warranty and also supplies cars to NG here. Not sure why the guy in Singapore didnt confirm this unless its confidential. As for NG not being credible, Mr Ratan Tata actually is on very good terns with the NG dealerships owner and has even come on one occasion to spend an hour chatting in order to thank NG for fixing his caddy(which for the record couldnt be fixed by anyone in tatamotors...and yeah i work for GM..so dont complain about your opels!). I think more than a belief problem it is a lack of faith in the fact that someone can actually work in a job they like. You guys seem to be just plain jelous with no capacity to buy the cars and Farhaad if you do read this post, its good to be a little aggressive in life!. So now whoever has a problem with Farhaad being an importer or not, work hard in life so that one day you may be able to afford one of these cars and stop squabbling like old women. Oh and for the record(farhaad confirm this to the oldies on this thread), a 308 GTS is at National garage now getting repaired with GENUINE spares!

Guys, I was sooooo fortunate to see these beauties in real. I was driving back to Bangalore from my Home Town (Chickmagalure). I happen to see Ferrari going towards my hometown. After going ahead some 40 Kms I thought I shouldnt miss this opertunity and see them to my content. I was driving in an Alto. I turned back and ripped my Alto (reached 145 on speedo) to chase Ferrari . Finally I could catch them. I just followed them for abt 30 mins. They were gorup of 7 cars. ( 1 Tata Indica, 1 Tata Safari, 1 Tata pick-up, 1 FIAT Bravo, 1 FIAT 500 and 2 Ferriaries). While I was following them, luckily they stopped for a small break and I was able to take a closer look and touch Ferrari take a look inside the car and Talk to those lucky drivers. It was a great moment of my life.

I have uploaded the video in You Tube. Here is the link
