That Ferrari looks great on Indian roads.

By the way, did you just go up to his house and ask him to start his Ferrari?

I just got back from a weekend in Goa...and I had trouble rummaging around in a Swift on those roads. I respect the sheer balls of stell the 430 owner has. Sensibly foolhardy almost!

Read the exotics in Goa thread. Explains everything.

ferrari certainely offers (or used to offer should i say) the f430 in dark blue although i have no clue if an f430 exists of this colour in india. im guessing this is the shade rev hard was referring to. i guess ferrari paint the f430 in any colour you want. i remember once seeing a golden brown f430 in dubai and it was the only one i saw of that colour.

Have a friend who belongs to a very prestigious business family here in India and she got a hot pink 599 when she went to Stanford! HOT PINK!

Sorry it might work if she got it on a Prius, but not on the bloody 599!!!

Do people who own exotic cars like lamborghinis, ferraris etc have clubs where they meet. Its quite common in the US even for corvette enthusiasts. I remember when i had my 06 corvette, people would wave to each other if they were themselves in corvettes, like a mutual group thing. Curious if owners meet up and share experiences or race each other at tracks etc ...anyone have any info on this?

Great find rev hard. so finaly it has been spotted.

Dippy it is not the 355 spyder of the south. I was informed of the 360 spyder in blue when i was in delhi but dismissed it as rumours as no real address of the car or it seen on the roads. Any ferrari can be bought in colours of and leather of your fancy. I have seen Ferrari's in the wierdest of colours and interiors. I guess it would carry a hefty price tag with it too.

Mrktgheadferrari not all cars have come through the official channel so you would not have a record of them. In India you have ferrari's right from 1964 or 67 upto 2008 bought through dealers abroad and some are even second hand cars so your records would show a sale in U.K. and resale in U.K. but the car is here.

Tarz unfortunately we do not have a specific Supercar Brand club in India. A fellow enthusiast and supercar owner has formed a Supercar club that caters to most of the cars. Here the owners of various cars just casually meet up if they are friends not otherwise. Most of India does not have a track and the supercars to some owners are just ego boosters.
