M.S Dhoni's Ferrari GTO? http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/intern...-3#post2301713 (The New Ferrari 599 'GTO') (post #33)
But weren't all GTOs sold out even before they got into production? Or is this a gift to him by some wealthy NRI who owns the GTO

That car is an LHD. I doubt it would be a legible import. But, with the current World cup win, they might permit it as a special case.

Uh Oh, that's an LHD. Do we see another media fuss for government relaxing rules for celebs?

Nice car. Although I seriously have concerns if the tri-color can be put that way? I don't think it is allowed.

Does not seem to be legit. Its an LHD + Has national flag on bonnet.

None of these would fly with customs.

Ain't all the freebies by State govt part of the marketing campaign?

Is that a audio speaker on door above the name tag ? Now why would anybody need a audio system inside a Ferrari .

Seems sketch. Considering they make GTO's in RHD, and if its an official Ferrari car, why are these images shot in a generic garage? Theres a Mustang, a W221 and what appears to be a Range Rover Sport in this garage. Looks like the Middle east to me.

Seems more like a hoax. Nobody repeat nobody is allowed to have a car with national flag painted like this. Even if somebody intends to present this car, it won't be allowed to be imported in India as it violets the guidelines of displaying a national flag on a car.

Sadly Money does not buy taste.

Too bad they dint "custom build" it for India (A Proper RHD).

Nevertheless great marketing campaign by Ferrari.
