Bespoke ADV.1 wheels for one of the Ferrari 458 Italia's of God's own Country.
The people down south surely do have some brilliant taste in mods unlike most parts of the country.

Hmm...call me old fashioned but I still prefer the stock rims on the Italia any given day. Must have cost a bomb though. This might sound silly but is there any need to upgrade the tyres for these alloys?

Agreed to that. I dont find these looking that great either. A red lip would have worked better maybe. Or even better, the ones that Josh Cartu has on his 458
And yes they cost a bomb. Somewhere close to the price of a decent hatchback. And the tires need upgrade only if the size if the new rims are bigger than the existing one, else the same tires work fine

I agree with you that it just doesnt suit the 458. The stock rims are just the best ever for a 458. Looks more suited to a 911. But, cost of a hatchback? Really? Could you be more precise?

Last week was pretty hectic, so for the weekend I decided to unwind at Ooty with friends and one of 'em turned up in his 'pony'

Met quite a lot of Bhpians from the Club Mahindra OTR event.

It was fun, guys. Great times!

It wasn't a planned trip and hence didn't carry a proper camera, so excuse the low res iPad photos.

We are looking at a range of 1250-1750 USD for a single rim. So that's more like the price of a hatchback for a set of 4.

It ain't all that bad in Calicut now, is it? And yes, I know that all of them are not from around here. But they sure are a sight for sore eyes .

The Gallardo used to be my favourite exotic in the stateline until it bade farewell, leaving room for a CFS. Kudos to its comeback.!

Alongside, the Bentley CGT, which had a nasty crash back in 2012 would probably too reappear here in the early months of 2015 .

Yes, that's the new Flying Spur. Belongs to a prominent builder. Shares garage with a black S class and grey RR Vogue.
