That's good to hear! Have you had the privilege of owning any other Ferrari, that you may like to share with us?

Am i correct in my impression that the owner drives this Dino around occasionally but mostly the car is under wraps and not used?

Nope. They get serviced there or they get parked there. Alot of Gautam Singhania's Cars are parked there too.

Correction Cyrus. Gautams cars are not parked there but some are serviced there and then come back to his place. R.K. does not allow only parking in his Pump, so the cars you see there, some belong to him and others are there to get serviced (parts have to be imported, so some cars stand for a longer time).
