Default Pics : The Mondial - Yet Another Ferrari in Bombay.

A poorly maintained Ferrari Mondia. These pics were taken by Sumit when the car was at his garage for a tyre change.

Mondial was never much of a success - was built during the low points of Ferrari's time - pathetic build quality etc.

shame to let a nice car go to the dogs like this. Wasn't Ferrari's finest, but it was still a decent automobile, which doesn't deserve to be in this condition.

We need to form a NGO like PETA...maybe we can call it the same...'cept it'll stand for People for the Ethical Treatment of Automobiles! We should then go around taking these sad creatures away from their abusive owners!!

hey guys,
isnt a Ferrari supposed to be a Ferrari??? Even the worst Ferrari is a Ferrari. Pls Pls dont compare it to the San Storm. The only similarity between the San and the Ferrari is that it has 4 wheels, steering, windows, tyres, engine. Thats it.

Ferrari is a Ferrari. I agree with you and that's all the more reason to keep a Ferrari in right shape. It does look like a cut paste job to me. Inside though has nothing to do with the owner, has a very plain Jane look.
A major let down according to me. I'm not for a moment try to put anything that disturbs anybody.

IMO, (and remeber this is just me talking), when a guy buys a car, he has every right to do whatever he wants to with the car. I could really care less NOW if someone banged even my favourite car the McLaren F1. The bottomline is that its because of these people that the companys actually make the car which they can sell such a car at high prices. itsbecause of them that these cars are there on the road and we can have a slight HOPE of getting to see one in real life. I know the Mondial won't be worth much yet in the end IT is an exotic Ferrari and to actually own one is not really a peice of cake.
