Don't know whether this is the right place to ask about this or not.

Unearthed some pictures of a Corvette Z06 that someone had posted in this very same thread about 11 years back. When investigated in detail about this car, I came to know that this was imported by a Mumbai-based businessman from Dubai who had converted this to RH drive. Due to some reasons, customs department seized this Corvette along with a RR Sport and a Suzuki Intruder bike in 2006. Till 2011, this was lying at Custom's department's yard at Willington Island with many other imported cars that had same fate.

Does anyone know about what happened to this beauty later? Is it still lying there itself?

If yes, is it possible to get some recent pics of the car?

Attaching the old pics of the above said car for reference :

Yes absolutely and its the only Ferrari FF in the State.

Belongs to a true auto enthusiast who bought the first Ferrari of Kerala way back in 2012.

Demi-decade ago his garage was consist of BMW 650i Coupe, Audi R8, Porsche 997 911 Carrera S Cabrio, Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2, Mercedes Benz W221 S350, Jaguar XJL, Audi A7 & a Porsche Cayenne.

Exactly! That GTC4Lusso was brought down by Ferrari India officials for an exclusive TD experience to the who's who of Kerala Supercar collectors, especially in Kochi, Thrissur & Calicut an year ago

The first in Kerala should be the Yellow Board 575M Trivandrum Registered one from 2004.

Here the car is pictures in the parking lot of TVS Karamana, Trivandrum.

Yes exactly. While typing, for a moment I missed to cross check the famous side twin exhaust.

This particular car always lead to a point of debate whenever we consider the first Ferrari of Kerala. Fact is, while enroute to its actual destination Bangalore, the car was registered at Trivandrum under the then infamous EPCG scheme (tour operator category at concessional rate of duty) and was never intended to use it in Kerala.

Toyota Voxy is a much smaller car. Refer below.

This particular car is not an Alphard neither a Voxy, it's a 2010 Toyota Vellfire.
