Default Visit to Ferrari & Maserati Dealership

Visited the Silicon Valley Ferrari & Maserati dealership today in RedWood City, around 30 miles away from San Jose.

Got some really good Maserati and Ferrari Brochures too.

Expected the Enzo but it was not on display. Will see it soon in the Ferrari Rally that is going to take place.

Here are the pics.

The Parking lot. Met the owner of the SL. He had come to book a F430 Spider.


The Maserati Quattroporte.


The Maserati GranSport V8 (Gorgeous car)


Ferrari F430 Coupe


Ferrari F430 Spider


The 4.3 litre V8


Ferrari 575 SuperAmerica


Ceramic Disc Brakes


Ferrari 456 GT


The Ferrari workshop, everyone wasnt allowed inside.
There is a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale standing inside, so is a Testarossa.


On my way back, caught the Ford GT on display. It was in a very wierd position letting no space to take good pics.


The 5.4 Litre V8 from the GT


Saleen S281


Supercharged engine from the Saleen Mustang S281

Hey Stratos!
Great pics man! I see you have had a very productive day.

When I saw the title I thought you had gone to the mumbai dealership. So was thinking to myself, "so how is our elusive Doc there doing? Did this chap go to pay him a visit or what!"

Red is the stock clour that you get. There is a price to have those in yellow.
