Well, the other day i'd been to a friend's house in "Kamanahalli" - Blore.

And there, i saw something that looked like a Ferrari. It was red in colour had a big Ferrari symbol one both sides.

Everything was fine except that this Ferrari had a 800cc engine. Yes, it was a M 800 dressed in red.

But the wierdest part is that it actually looked better than the usual M800. I dunno if it was the colour or the Ferrari logos.

I wish I had a cam at that moment, coz this car is worth a look.


Regards...

No AL,
It wasn't completely modified. What i liked about the car was that it was kept simple without spoilers and skirts.

It was painted in Red with just 2 ferrari logos. Even the tyres were stock.

All i can say is that this guy didn't do all this to show off. He seems to be really passionate about it.

His message was simple and clear and it said "I Love Ferrari"

Thats nothing, have you seen an old red toyota Supra (used to be white, then yellow now red) which has been modified to look like a Ferrari from the rear. Usually parked at the HP office next to airlines hotel

here in my area theres a Datsun 240Z. That guy has painted it red and put Ferrari logos on it. A friend of mine seen it and called me up immed and told me that he seen an old Ferrari in front of our building. I showed him some pics of some Ferraris and he recognised it as the 250GTO. [I can see the to GTO's face .....lol]. I was shocked. A 250GTO in Bombay. Then after a while of thinking , I gave him one hard "kaan-patti" and I told him that the car is not a Ferrari. Its a Datsun.

same here. One day when Dippy and his bro came over to Seven Bungalows, a friend of mine called me and told me that the 360 is parked near Juhu Circle. And me and Dippys bro got on to my bike and went to Juhu just to realise that we had been fooled.

i've told this guy to call me or gimme a blank call whenever he sees a good car. Just 2 weeks back he told me that theres a shootin goin on nearby and a silver Mercedes "sportcar" has come there. We reached there and it was not a "sportscar". It was the M Class. Another "kaanpatti". Then just 3-4 days back, he said theres a silver sportscar at the end of my lane. At 11 immed after havin dinner, i went to have a look at the car. It was a FTO. Then I told him, explained rather, that whenever you see a good car, see whats written behind and then call me up and tell me what cra it is.

Don't worry guys, you'll get to see your share at the drag meet.

Hey Ajmat,
I've also seen a Ferrari kit car around Brigades, it might be the same one but, i'm not sure whether if it was a Supra coz i got to see the back of the car which according to you has been modified to look like a Ferrari.

But ther's one thing i noticed, that car had big but high profile tyres, not the sleek ones you get on a Ferrari.

The HP office is on airport road right? Next to Manipal Hospital.

Regards..
