The picture of the F430 with stripes and black wheels you saw in the Bangalore and Kerala page is the ex Bombay normal car and not the scuderia.

It's a Matte white Aventador right? Have seen a picture of it along with the FF.

Most of these cars are seen around KP only.

Whoever bought this Maserati GranTurismo MC Stradale sure does have great taste and huge, ahem, guts too! *grins*

There is something about Maseratis. Isn't there? They're in a way, Ferraris that aren't as sharp, but just that much more classy. It's like the luxury-arm of Ferrari.

This one isn't though. It's just raw.

Very well put! I find the Maseratis to be more evocative than Ferrari and Lamborghinis'.

That Maser is just an embodiment of evil. It should not go near religious institutions, lest it be booked for heresy.
Thanks for sharing the pictures

This car is so radically different from the base GT. Well, maybe not but its feels as different as a C63 AMG is to a C 250. Chalk and cheese.

Being an ardent fan and lover of the history and heritage of Maserati, according to me the Granturismo (especially the Granturismo S) is one of the most beautiful designs to come out of the design house of Pininfarina and looks more "beautiful" than any of the Ferraris on sale today. Also more suited to our conditions with the ride and suspension being more palatable/tolerable on our roads, however the MC Stradale is frankly predominantly for track use and more of a statement than anything else (and what a statement its exhaust makes!!) What makes the above car look even more sinister and raw is the black exterior and wheels, in the Mediterranean Blue or the Mondiale Red the MC looks less hardcore and frankly shows the lines better. Which is why the newly launched Grantusimo Sport which commences deliveries in August has a design language similar to the MC Stradale without sacrificing the usability since it's offered as an automatic or an electro-accuated manual. What is the icing on the cake is the new engine generates more horsepower(460hp) than the one in the MC Stradale(450hp) also which would make it extremely difficult to justify an MC Stradale over it unless meant for track use or hardcore fun. The sound of the exhaust in Sports mode (or Race mode in the MC) is simply phenomenal and the BEST exhaust note of any production car. Period.

Mostly agree with you on the shade, and totally about the glorious noise they make,but at the risk of sounding a tad sacrilegious, a Maserati and Ferrari are just badges apart, speaking purely stylistically. Sure, they have their own characteristic design elements that define them, but the Pininfarina DNA which lurks underneath makes its presence felt here and there.

Notice how the rear window of the GranTurismo is strikingly similar to the one in the FF, the two being strikingly different cars as well. Also, the GT is admittedly getting a little long in the tooth now, but that's not such a bad thing. Who wouldn't love to see it around?

Range Rover Sport spotted at Pune Airport Arrivals. Had a beautiful music system in there. I dont know if it was added later or if the cars original system is that good.

Nice catch! I have a feeling this could be one of the safety cars for the VW Polo Cup series.

As I was returning home on Friday 27th July, I spotted a Red coloured Mitsubishi EVO X on Tilak road just opposite the Dell Showroom. Couldnt take pictures as I was driving. The car had a MH 42 registration. Any body here with the pictures or details.
