Default Hi everyone, Farooq from HYD I work for Ferrari.

Hello everybody
Am feel very happy to be here, thanks for posting.
I am delighted to be here, I am Mohammed Farouq from Hyderabad presently working for Ferrari & Maserati in kingdom of sauida Arabia for the past 1 year as spares parts manager, the cars I own in india is a 1972 model Toyota Land Crusier (three door), Tata safari & in bikes I own a bullet (modified) a pulsar 220, 1972 vespa & my prized possession a PW50 Yamaha.

And here in KSA Riyadh I own a Hyundai accent and Suzuki street magic .guys believe me I think that I am blessed to be here working for Ferrari, the thrill I get when I go for a test drive in these beauties I feel on the top of the world. I have driven almost all the latest model of Ferrari the F430,F430 SPIDER ,F430 SCUDERIA, F430 M16,599 FIORANO,599 HGTE (Special one, (comes with lots of interiors &exteriors in carbon fiber) the CALIFONIA Waiting to lay hands on ENZO which are only 2 available in KSA, and in MASERATI QUATTROPORTE,GRANTURISMO. Now waiting for the latest ITALIA 458.

Going through the posts in this forum somewhere ignited the desire to post some pics of these beauties. I was surprised and also very happy to see the events of drag races taken place in HYD with some exotic cars participating in the event. Will try my best to be there for the future events.

I sure everyone out there will enjoy these pictures of these beauties with beast within.

Welcome to TBHP. Congratulations!

I hope you can impart a lot of knowledge on the model of cars that are not available in India. Everyday you can see new models on the roads which you will never see in India, and Arabs are crazy about cars. Driving is one of their hobby, especially in the desert, and petrol is cheaper than mineral water.

Welcome onboard farooq. You are one lucky man to lay your hands on those beutiful beasts all the time. With your time spent with them i think we can expect a thread started by you just on them with Photos. How did end up working for ferrai. A litle insight might enlighten a lot of budding enthusiasts in this forum!

Welcom Farooq. I think you might just be the luckiest man in the world.

Could you let us know which is the silver car on the left in the fourth picture? Is that some variant of a Ferrari 275?

hey cLJ ur ABS right abt the Arabs,they are mad about the cars,Any new launch in the market they want to add it to there fleet.from our show room sales i came to know that sometimes they had some crazy saudi customers who want to buy a car,they just go around the showroom and want to customise they car with different models.

For example interiors theme of quattro sports to a ferrari 599/F1 shifters of granturismo S to quattro.GTS.One just cant understand want they exactly want, & they way they abuse these babes is unimagineable.some Arabs use it for daily use,i remember we have so many cars of 2008 models driven nearly 70,000 to 80,000 kms for some saudi its just like Maruti800 as for us.on an average every one or two months we have a total loss accident cars.soon will attach the pics of these beauties coming to an tragic end,one just cant make out which car was it.
