Talking Spotted : F430 I reckon.

Alright folks. My window overlooks the reclamation part of the Bandra-Worli Sea-link, so I get to see some exotic wheels almost every day. But this is the first time i've ever seen anything like this. A few minutes back, there was this truck, you know the ones with only this looooooooong platform kinda thing trailing behind them. No walls or any protection at the sides. Just a car, a VERY low car, with a red cover tightly drawn over it. I could bet my life it was a Ferrari cover, although I could not see the logo clearly from the distance. And going by the shape under the cover, I am almost 100% sure it was an F430. So now is someone in Bandra getting his new wheels? I think so!!
Also, I was just taking a walk on Pali Hill, I walked past that new bungalow in the Shatranj lane [dont know who's the owner] but the owner just pulled up in a BMW-7 and the gates were opened for him for a few moments. I saw the Phantom most of you have probably heard of by now [reg. MH xx Q 1]. A black S-Class [reg. mh xx S 500] was also trailing. I've seen these cars before, but this was the first time i've seen the gates opened. So to make it a perfect walk I took a slightly longer route and walked to Sanju baba's building to see the covered F430. Done this a hundred times before.
And thats why I'm so sure that the covered car on the trailer was also an F430. Peeled my eyes hard for any indications of a 599 but the shape was not that of a long front end like a 599 but more of a centred-cab design of an F430. For a moment I was playing for an Enzo but I kinda accepted that that just wasn't happening.
So yeah, Bandra folks [including me] have a new F430 to look out for.

Flyingspur, I gotta applaud your eagle eyes. That indeed was a Ferrari F430 under the cover.

A LS460/600, a W221 and a F430 close together. Not bad, Bombay.
