Theres places like Joe Macaris but I doubt their service centre is any bigger.
Verdi has 6-8 work bays to work from , he has a large storage facility.H.R OWEN service centre is the biggest in london

There a few owners of a Carrera and Carrera S in chd.. No Carrera GT in chd and waise bhi it can't be imported into India due to LHD restrictions ( certain exceptions apply and that too for a very short period of time)

In either case dude, who could possibly mistake a normal 911 with a Carrera GT?

Well it happens all the time.

Who could mistake a sera for a ferrari 612, or a sonata for jag S-type, or a DB9 for a vantage, or a firebird for a ferrari, or a TT for a R8...

Need i say more?

All the above misidentifications have been mentioned on TBHP.

On order is the LP640 in arancio atlas (pearl orange) slotted for may delivery. I am also interested in the SV Murci coming out in June so I might just trade that for the LP and also getting the F430 Scuderia here in India by year end(possibly from Hyperperformance cuz I think they'll be just the right people for the task)..
Manik is a friend of mine.. He was actually my junior in Vivek High School.. Hehe..
Below are the pics I just clicked of the 911 and Bentley.. Kinda rusty in the photography department but will get back to better clicking once I resume photography.. Btw,My name is Karan Deep Singh.

Picasa Web Albums - KD - Cars at home

I don't know how to post pics here as I can't see the option so I uploaded them on Picasa.. I hope I don't get the hatred from my fellow brother here as I get in chd for apparently no reason.. Enjoy!
wow pearl orange the best lambo colour , please do specify black wheels , they look stunning with the orange paint

But can't LHD cars be converted to RHD?

They can be converted to RHD from LHD. But as per my little research online, cheaper cars get easier conversions (Mustangs and the lot) .

The Ford GT with all its fame and acclaim only recently got converted to RHD by some popular Aussie converters who specialize in Mustang's and ford's as such.

So the probability that some one converted the priceless CGT (I doubt there would be any tuner who would do that) to RHD just to be driven in India does sound incredulous but with India's economic position, it isn't impossible.
For the wealthy, the best thing is to get your Lamborghini and Ferrari's in India and stack the LHD specialties in Dubai or USA.

It was obviously a mistake! GT's are available only in LHD, and LHD cars cannot be imported right? So rehaan, your assumption was right all along!
