The F430 is usually used from dawn to mid morning on sundays on its usual route to NH2/NH6 outside the city.It hadly ever ventures out anywhere else.Considering it stays near quiet,posh and leafy Alipore it would meet much Junta also.:-) Other than that the owner is an Embassy Honorary Consul so i am sure he has adequate security wherever he goes.

Honorary Councils don't have a single privilege connected to the country they represent, apart from protocol welcome in the country they represent, not even a car on a subsidised basis. In fact one has to cough up your own money to maintain the status, not to mention entertain at your own cost everyone who lands up from the country one represents, leave alone security. The only time security is deployed is when a political figure or state head turn up from the country you represent. Honorary council was considered a status symbol and was convenient to have if you trade a lot with the said country, these days the status symbol is not really what it used to be, but a pass time for a few

Brace yourselves, twin AMG's coming to Calcutta and making its way to one garage.
They both should be here in a few months.

Why Scuderia? (Previous gen). Should have at least got Speciale type stripes.

I say get no stripes, be it Scuderia or Speciale, but then its the owners choice in the end, and eventually it will grow on us people (including me) and we will start to like it.
Just like everyone spoke about the Noctis bumper and later say"it grows on you man"

It is humanly impossible for us, old members to hunt down exotics / imports / super cars unlike a thorough enthusiast like, cityvic. Looks like, he is busy toying with new acquisition

Here is a beautiful 330D which was spotted:
