No, with such discreet image absolutely no.

Is this the only image available, this needs to be covered in details for viewing pleasure.

The car's name is itself the biggest clue to the owner's identity

Spiderman is back - and am happy that he is back with the Ferrari. History repeats itself is all I can say. Tomorrow is Sunday - so hope to catch him on his rounds.

His red 430 , I guess, has been sold. Not sure of the R8 cos I seen him ripping it 2 weeks ago.

PlatzdaTurbo - Yes, you have guessed it right. (owner). It shouldnt be long before his Spider makes it into Bombay Times or Mumbai Mirror.

Thanks for the pics, guys! That is my absolute dream car right now. Along with a few others, obviously. Wish the wheels were the graphite finish option, but brilliant car nonetheless.

Nice catch, thanks for sharing.

Considering that he has a base in Delhi as well, it's quite a waste to keep the Ferrari in Mumbai. Ship it to Delhi and drive her on the Buddh!

But it won't hurt him to ship it to Buddh whenever he feels so.

Plus considering the industry he is from, all the glamour is in Mumbai and not Delhi

But good to see him back in a Ferrari!

Hi,
I know this Thread hasn't been Updated since Mid-2012 but I couldn't find another Thread regarding India's only 458 Spider.
I am also pretty sure that this has already been mentioned somewhere else on the Forum but I think that posting here isn't a Problem.
Capristo, the Manufacturer of Exhaust Systems for Brands such as Lamborghini and Ferrari, has created a Glass Engine Cover for the Ferrari 458 Spider.
The Glass Engine Cover, not only let's you see the Engine, it also helps increase Air Flow, thus helping the Car keep Cool.
It costs 9,800 Euros, which translates to around 7 Lac Rupees, a lot for an Engine Cover, but just remember, this is a Ferrari, all parts are Expensive.
It is also, excluding the Glass, all made with Carbon Fibre.
There have been many Ferrari 458 Spider Owners and even Car Lovers complaining about the 458 Spider as the Engine is hidden even though it is Beautiful.
Well, this is the Solution, and, I hope Spiderman gets it for his 458 Spider.

No No, before you think otherwise - its not taking off. Just one of the 1000 speedbreakers the 458 has to climb through.

Hey NC, I believe these were spotted today, right? Spiderman in the passenger seat and bodyguard/driver driving the car? I spotted it today near Juhu circle and was alongside it for sometime.
