Default Pics: India gets its first Ferrari California in Mumbai

The first Ferrari California has landed right here in Mumbai. I heard it is imported by a VVIP for himself. He had the car flown down from Italy to Mumbai and air freight cleared here. It is a LHD but it is already registered as we speak.(There are exceptions) Here are a few pictures I received from Mr agent4ferrari.

How does one register a LHD in India? Have the rules changed?

I guess Ratan Tata will be gifted one by Ferrari. Is this the one?

Money power.

Seems to be a rather silly thing to do, IMO. Buying a LHD car in India.
Never liked the looks of the Cali that much.

I think Mr.Tata has got that much brains that he wouldn't buy a LHD! This couldn't be his ferrari.
