in the first few pictures I remember seeing "Car No. 1 for Gautam Singhania, India"

does it mean that it is the first F458 ever made?
or the first one made for India?
or the first one made for Gautam Singhania?

Some trivia : See the yellow dot on the tyre? Thats the lightest spot on the tyre, as marked by the tyre manufacturer.

Typically the yellow spot should be lined up with the valve stem (the heaviest spot on the wheel) to minimize the amount of wheel balancing weights required.

Strange that this hasn't been done. Infact, you can even see the wheel balancing weights stuck on the wheel diagonally across from the valve!

Wonder if these tyres were mounted in Italy or India....?

@rehaan everything seems to be set apart by 90 degrees.Could there be some sort of logic behind that?

Superb pics mate. I am so looking forward to see this car in the flesh later this month at the Supercar rally! I saw it the day it arrived on a flat-bed truck but sadly it was covered.

On second look, not only is the above true -- but theres also some more balancing weights right next to the yellow dot!

Its possible that the amount of weight used in both places could be reduced or perhaps even eliminated if the tyres were mounted with the yellow dot at the valve.

I think thats just randomness.

Where there is logic is that the brake caliper of the front wheel is towards the rear of the car, and the rear wheel's caliper is towards the front of the car -- this keeps the weight closer to the center of the car. (Similar logic to a "mid engined" vs "rear engined" car -- but on a more nano scale!)


You can't really tell in the pictures, but that front disc is ENORMOUS!!!! Gotta see it to believe it.

Yes, looking forward to seeing this car at the supercar show on 23rd Jan. I hope GS brings it this time (referring to the absence of it on the expressway run). It sure should steal the top award or whatever they were giving out even over the 640, IMO.
