@ mohit - my office is at loudon street (Surabhi - beside Birla girls school) - the A6 (i dont know about the A8) is parked in the building with the large wooden gate.

hope you guys have seen the parking lot of Lytton
Not exactly a Shelby Cobra, but a Cobra kit car with one hell of an engine something like 500-600 horses.

I know I might be a bit late to correct this. But, the Tea Industry owner doesn't own this particular 348 atleast. One of his closest friends does.
Know it for sure as I know them both well.

This might help you to drool better

my bad-i got confused. it is the same tea industry guy. apperently he has some other businesses which i was aware of.

the guy has many other exotics also, and they are all over india.

he has a few porsches, a couple of bentleys lying around india, has a fleet of around 25-30 odd mercs, a few BMWs, a rolls royce to name a few cars.
we should not even dwell into the "smaller" cars like camry/accord/octavia and all.

and the guy in the topic is just not a "ferrari nut", he is a "car nut". maybe more of a nut than most of us here. the way he maintains his cars will put most of the dealerships to shame.

At first glance,this car always looks like a Testarossa because of the straked side air intakes,but this 348 was a mid-engined RWD V8 which replaced the 328.But Testarossa debuted in 1984,whereas the 348 debuted in 1989.Testarossa had a 4.9L flat-12 engine though.

By the way,is this 348 in Kolkata,as because it has a HR Registration plate ?

i highly doubt it would be the original. could be another kit car planet_rocker. there is also a 60's corvette stingray in yellow with GJ registration, but i doubt it would be in Kolkotta, but you never know. do post pictures if you see the car again.
