No i dont think its being gifted.Each player got a cheque of Rs.50 lakh or so at the Delhi felicitation ceremony,thats apart from their usual pay.The IPL buyouts will also fetch them a good amount.I guess a certain percentage of the bid amount would go to the IPL,but wat the heck they'd still have millions left.So Tendulkar's finally gonna have some competetion i guess.

Default Ferrari!!!

Ferrari Magic India Discovery comes to Trivandrum.

Was wondering why not too many pics are out in the net, and got the answer. These guys are trying hard to avoid publicity! There were so many restrictions imposed, and many friends who came to see where disappointed. crazybiker46 also arrived later at the scene.

My first ferrari sighting!!!

i'm still wondering why there is not much publicity for event here.
i arrived lately after CD's call to come to TAJ,kovalam,so missed Fiat 500 as it had already been taken inside hotel.To get a glance of 612s i had to climb on top of a Kinetic Blaze and look over the wall,thanks to publicity and hotel staff.. after washing of 612s was over i was able to get a clear view from parking lot's gate..
engine starting sound itself was awesome,was driven by Ferrari testdrivers to inside of hotel and my first ferrari view ended there.....
But Bravo was mising from fleet arrived here in tvm.

Oh come on! That's no M3 GTR, it's an E36 M3 with some AC Schintzer stuff on it including Wheels, Bodykit, Brakes etc. etc.

In fact I'm not even sure that there was a GTR version of the E36 which was sold to the public.

I've heard rumors that it has an Alpina engine. Are they true?

From what i've heard, it was used for racing by the owner, who later got it for himself.

Its a M3 GT-R,not sold to public but for racing.Owner himself used this car for racing in Britian and had BMW & AC schnitzer as sponsors since he was working at Rolls Royce.He had 16 wins from 52 races on this car.After its racing days he brought it to trivandrum in 1998.Now he is at BMW,chennai.
i haven't seen that 7 series in real so i don't know about alpina engine details....
Also he was president of M3 racing club for four years....
