Sadly this car is also going to be PY registered
Sounds reasonable. I mean the only other person I know who literally uses his supercar as an everyday car is the yellow Lamborghini Murcilago LP 640, even way more powerful and delicate than the R8. Hats off to him.
And this R8, is it manual transmission or the R Tronic one? I believe he painted the roof and the blades with matt black paint? Carbon fiber finish would have been simply outstanding!

No its not a manual tranny , its R tronic

Roof and blades are not matt black its having carbon fibre finish and v10 alloys were imported from dubai , almost half the cost quoted by Audi dealer

Oh ok. Did not notice the 'weave' of the carbon fiber finish. Oh well, then it's simply excellent. I was wondering what was the price of those gorgeous alloys charged by Audi and now your post replied to that. Good he did that.
The overall package is simply awesome. Now if it had also come with the crazy Bang & Olufsen stereo, it would have been mind blowing! But hey, with that audio note from the V8 engine behind you, who cares!

As per the news, he is the owner of the car and they are doing business in UAE. He brought this car to Kerala in connection with his marriage and will send back while returning.

The newspaper article says that the Quattroporte is the first Maserati to be brought into the state. We all know that it's not true, don't we?

Newspaper article is not actually wrong. Isnt it?
I think a QP is only the first Maser to hit Kerala, though not this one.
