Source was a chap that Dippy met, who identified it as the Enzo and said that it had a broken glass.

Car was shipped to Bangalore after lying at the Citizen hotel for three months prior to February.

Can't imagine an Enzo being in Bangalore but I hope that I am wrong ! There are only 350 Enzo's in existence. They cost around $4500000 USD and are being sold at a near 50% mark up. They were sold by invitation only. Unless this was another taxi, cannot imagine someone paying so much more duty on a car which is totally unusable over here. BTW they are not too reliable, CAR drove one around New York and it overheated. They need an autobahn to be appreciated.

Ajmat,

The Enzo production was revised to 399 units + 1 (For Ferrari gallery purposes) shortly after launch. This was due to the ire from many F40, F50 and other Ferrari owners who wanted an Enzo too.

Yes, some Enzo's sold for even more than the 50% mark-up. Quite simply the ones who got it at the original price of $600,000 odd got it the most "inexpensive (somehow cheapest and inexpensive seem out of place here)
