^^ that definitely looks like Spiderman's fezza, I think the chrome rims are sported only in his car moreover, its a "spider". IIRC, this car had some slight injuries to the side skirts and a rim. Hope he rectified it.

Taking the spyder out for a spin in the rains, bad idea.

Had a word with the people at Ferrari. There is no 458 Italia delivered yet to India. The car seen at worli is not a 458. The Good News is the only 458 (and the owner using alot of influence) will be here in Nov. He has the slip by Ferrari stating car no 1 India. The wait for a 458 is a year minimum.
My info is directly from the owner and a Ferrari representative.

No speedy, it was 8545. yes he was fast intermittently due to our roads, every clean open patch you could hear it growl. The best was on the slope opposite PDP when it gets narrow near Haveli building, i was right behind him and he floored it ! Omg that sound, i still clearly remember and hear it even today.
Yes spiff it was 1-15 when i first spotted it at napeansea road and then followed him till one round of marine drive

Definately two different cars. My Father sleeps by 11pm max so the night owls are missed . He saw the car on Sunday in the afternoon at around 3:30pm. The reg no was 0_ _ 8.

Rules state you cannot give registration no's unless on PM, thats why first and last digits . They are two different cars but something also makes me think it could be the 360 of F.M. he is seen sunday afternoons with the car. I forget his reg no and thats why a little muddled as to is it a new entrant or an old one. The car wizzed past my father while he was at a signal so the shape and reg no is known model is not.

Just to clear out any confusion, below is the 430 count for Mumbai.

3 Spiders (distinguished by the carbon fibre rear panel). The other is the Scuderia.

The Scuderia is a blue coupe IIRC. And the one on the left is the special edition, right?

The Scuderia is also red. None of the above cars is a special edition. The special edition you are referring to is the Poonawala 430 with a CF spoiler - which is discussed on Pg 14/15.

The carbon fibre rear panel is an optional accessory or is it a newer version of the F430?
