Kartik, I've always noticed that before you enter the lane where its parked, there is dirty water flowing on the road. I take my humble bike round it, do you guys do that to these cars as well??!?! I'd definitely do that if I was driving one of those cars.

If you look at it this way, no driver on planet earth requires more than 100 Bhp.. That is enough for daily/normal use. Any where in the world one says, I drive a 599 or the LP, it elicits the same response.
1) Blasphemy Porsches, Audis and well ok Bentleys as well are totally made for India...Snob value

2) Some one is gonna have to address this problem of not having a track soon...Isn't there any way to make it profitable for someone to build one say off of Mumbai or something...

3) ME...ME I require more than 100bhp out of my daily driver...Damn if I had to live with less I would let the driver drive

4) And NO!!! LP and 599 DO NOT elicit the same response...I mean ask any of the Indian farmers would they trade their bulls for mere horses! NO and neither would I buy a 599 over an LP

It definitely looks much better than the 612 Scag.

Niiiiiiiiiiiiice....People in India are getting some great taste and being more exclusive is the name of the game!

What part of Mumbai is this car going to be living?

Although i loove the F599, there is just something about the F430 that this lacks! And ofcourse the cheaper price-tag of the F430 is also a factor.

Just wanted to ask, does this car have any particular modifications done to it for Indian Road conditions, like the 612's for the tour.

I never imagined anyone would have said this buddy! The F430 is simply brilliant in terms of looks. The 612 Scaglietti & 599 GTB Fiorano are too unconventional to be called Ferraris! Used to hate both these at one point of time. They are among those cars which look ugly in pics and look good only when you see them in the flesh.
No offence meant to you buddy but I wouldn't compare the F430 with the GTB Fiorano.

Great car there!! i remember checking out one in dubai just when it was released at a golf club... and yes the car's lines are somewhat hidden in the pics especially the curves at the back... however i like the f430's wide and low stance better...
