Yes it's the same one if it has an AP number. I have seen it around being driven by some dodgy looking chap in areas that you wouldn't expect a car of this sort to be with its roof down!

He is not a Dodgy looking person, unless you hold his religion against him. He has had some great cars in the past too and does not believe in watching where he takes the cars..they are just cars for him at the end of the day.

Let not jump the gun here and assume we are even talking about the same person or getting into claims about religion now. I have seen the car being driven by different people at different places.

I am talking of the owner of the car and not other people who drive it. I have seen the car being driven 6 times and with the same person behind the wheel and most of the time with his family with him and yes the top down. So i guess its wrong on my part to assume you have only seen the owner driving it..

I saw it less than three years (precisely 1.5 years ago or so) ago or so being driven by a white haired gentleman, it used to be parked out and inside near pali market residence of the pump owners

India's first Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 now in Matte Blue (originally Grigio Avlon) and India's only Ferrari 430 Scuderia now with Capristo exhaust and BBS wheels.

IMO, both these cars should be reverted back to stock, at least on the outside. Especially the LP640, which used to look stonking in its original shade.

The wrap shade on the LP640 looks smashing in person IMO,pictures which have come out so far don't do much justice to the color.
I also agree that the original was good too,change is required ain't it?

While I disagree on the LP640, the grey to me looked very boring, I prefer this blue. However the Scuderia should have been left stock, I hope he doesn't over do it like his M3.
Call me old school but I prefer my cars to be factory fitted to the top spec rather have the urge to go aftermarket.

I have a small confusion here.
Doesn't Kerala have one too? The red one with KSG exhausts?
Or is it just a 430 (without the scuderia )?

While I agree with the Matte Blue wrap being not as good looking as the original paint, I do get the uniqueness and passing fad concept, without any consequences. But to be totally blunt, I loathe the BBS rims on the Scud, too flashy for the car, especially it being a track-focused superlight version. The rims may look good on a normal F430, but a Scud..not so. Sorry, Joey

Yes, that's a normal F430 with Scud stripes

The LP640 looks smashing in the wrap in person.. The Grey got boring for the owner after a while and the wrap still keeps the grey intact within. The Scuderia is in original color..what gave the impression it has been wrapped or something. The car just has the smoked tail lights and BBS wheels, other than these its completely original.

The Kerala car you talk of is a normal F430 (previous car of the owner of the lp 640 posted above) with scuderia stripes.

@ Scorcher - The capristo exhaust has been removed from the F430 and its on stock exhausts as far as i know. I also believe the exhaust was brought and fitted by someone else and not Racetech.

Absolutely nothing gave me the impression that it is wrapped. But it isn't completely stock either.
